About This File

Short E2-styled (I think) map. The first half is pure Tyson, later you'll find the shotgun. I plan to make full E2 replacement, but I'm very slow (this map was started in 2008...), so I will upload these maps one by one.

This is one of Memfis's earliest maps (2008 according to the text file), which shows in the unrefined design. The opener of a promised Episode 2 replacement, Voyage to Deimos, which never came to fruition, visual appeal tends to be highest when it's dark. Otherwise it mostly looks bland. Geometry doesn't sway from the rectangular. Floors and ceilings of sectors seem left with whatever texture Doom Builder assigned them upon creation. Years later, Memfis would specialize in an appealing, clever mode of lower-detail design, but this is more of the "novice" sort. 

 

As for gameplay, it's straightforward warm-up Doom 1 stuff: pistol to start, 'zerk early, shotgun later; lots of imps and pea-shooter zombiemen, occasional pinkies and lost souls, the rare caco.

 

That's nothing groundbreaking, but I won't comment on it, because once I found the berserk pack, I decided "now we're punching stuff" and did nothing else.

 

Health is scarce, so the cacos are a bit tricky, and shotgunners lurk the later shadows in good numbers. Without the benefit of range, I once had to platform and then box imps point blank. A partial invisibility secret enacts a clever trade-off; it can help with the shotgunners, but it complicates dealing with the imps, both of which often commingle.  

 

The map was uncommonly well suited to that and my punching ability, and I enjoyed myself. So 4/5.

A decent looking map with a good use of minor monsters to create a challenge. I got a bit overeager with the tysoning at the start and lost some health so I had to play is slow and took more like 17 minutes to reach the exit, but didn't die, even though my health was rather low all along, which made it suspenseful.

      Going Down is hard for me to review because of how unique it is despite being just another Boom compatible megawad. Plenty of megawads exist that have unique themes and brutal open ended levels but Going Down sets itself apart through intelligent use of Boom actions. No two maps feel exactly the same because under the hood they always have something different going on. Walls falling to reveal a new hellish underside, a dark mirrored version of our world, rooms that transform faster than you can blink an eye, and a literal descent into the mouths of hell are just a few of the things Going Down does to stay fresh. Go play it and you will not regret it.

      Took me a whole 40 minutes to finish, perhaps I'm just slow, but this map in UV is pretty tough, complete with Doomkid's charm and his custom monsters, definitely does what it sets out to do pretty well. I couldn't find the ssg and indeed it makes the thing quite hard, wasn't a fan of the final fight either, but overall, very fun to go through.

      I finished it , very fun classic wad!  I liked the subtle references to Ultimate Doom in some maps.

      Tough start with a couple of well designed monster encounters. Doesn't bring anything new to the table but is still plenty of fun.
