About This File

The challenge of this wad is to not become a Zombie!

This is a very tough, large, non-linear, single player wad. Please note, skill 4 (Top Doomers Only!) is designed partly as a "Test of Doomer Skills" -- tough but not impossible (no cheat codes required). All skill settings are quite difficult (at least in places).

Experience the surprise of the "Gauntlet" Go Teleport Wacky in the "Circle of Death" Race against time on the "Battlefield" Get blown to bits in the teleport barrel trap! Try to find the only Megasphere in the game. And how the heck do you get the backpack? I see the blue key, but how do I get it? And who the heck is that laughing? Find the Prairie Style room, complete with Inglenook!

But, most of all, Beware the Beating of the Heart...

This felt like a Terry map... without the spam.

I'm sorry to have to say this but regardless of quality I don't think this is an appropriate way to treat a returning community member. Come on, he worked for TeamTNT. He's not Terry or anything like that! If the level wasn't too your liking feel free to express it and rate it as such but really it should be in a polite manner.

All aspects of this are outdated and should not be held up to snuff with today's WADS. That being said, I judging this solely on the game play, which i found to be sub-par. 2/5 for me.

Um ok. I'm not a zdoomer. But I'll tell this level's gameplay is pretty poor. Both sides in that argument are automatic fail. If you want complex gaming, go pick up Rage. But this level is a total fail. 1/5

This is a great level that showcases the more creative side of the 90's.

Some people are characterizing this wad as "good action/challenge vs poor visuals". I'll like to say that I find the visuals great, and love the unconventional colours, themes and the whole atmosphere. The gameplay is overflowing with creativity, but to appreciate it, you need to spend some time playing freely and experimenting. You won't enjoy this wad if you expect it to be a walk in the park and feel that you should be able to exit on your first attempt.

A 1996 WAD whose ambition matches its amount of garish colors and strange designs. If you're looking for a decidedly non-standard take on DOOM, and don't mind the headache-inducing visuals, check it out; if you want slick FPS action, get something else. Myself, I'll be honest: I didn't get into it. 1/5 - ZZ

A guys who made this map is a member of TeamTNT doesn't helps the problems on the map. Confusing about where should I go..clamped map and shitty traps for cheats player. Yeah, for a 1995/1996 map, it's interesting about its design style and some weird custom textures which not bad, the action is hot but doesn't helps too much, even tried some times I still feel boring... 2.5/5 -playerlin

To put it carefully, this is simply a slightly above mediocre mid-90s TC. While it is creative, it doesn't really attempt to show the ideas off. While it also comes from a TeamTNT member, it was a solo project that reminded me of John Romero's solo efforts on Daikatana and I don't see anybody praising that game just because JR worked for id software. This wad is good for nostalgia and one or two playthroughs, however. 3/5

It's a 94-96's wad, super cramped. Awful, but still there's some tricks never seen in any other wad. (Like the room full of stoned imps after the teleport.) Pacifist style helps a lot. Wonder if anyone has ever reached the secret ending without cheating? 3.5/5

The design and new graphics were quite original and good, for me. However, I'm not sure in what order at all you are supposed to go through the level, but I wandered in to a room full of Barons, Arachs and Cacos with nothing but the shotgun. Also the trick to get the yellow keycard is very tedious. Reminds me why I love Heretic so much.

Trying to be wildly original doesn't always equal a good map

A great and unconventional map. Play it if you want a very different experience from normal Doom maps, and are willing to spend some time to get used to its complex twisted logic. If you're looking for a standard Doom map where you can just kill stuff without thinking too much, and exit on your first attempt, look elsewhere.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
