About This File

A simple Boom wad. It's my first released work here, and even my first work with Boom. It has only 11 Maps, cause I don't have much time to make a full megawad. I don't know where did the name come from, It's just a name.

It's a cute first mapset by FractalXX, a mapper mostly known to be the project leader of Gridlock 64 and some other maps for other projects. The wad is strongly reminiscent of 90s mapsets and have quite good attention to detail, as well of lots of "bright colors"  in the textures usage that is rare to see in Doom maps. All maps are pretty short (the one that take me most of the time it was 10 minutes of play) and this mapset can be finished in a half hour. Best map in the pack is MAP09, but overall  a ok episode for pass the time.

It's been 2 years since this release. Even I wouldn't rate it any good. I just had a thought of remaking it, again in Boom format, but with better experience, would try to balance it better, make gameplay better, detailing, etc. Maps wouldn't be all the same, but the concept, maybe also the soundtrack/textures would be. What do you think?

There's obviously a lot of raw enthusiasm being shown by the author, but the experience/know-how isn't quite there yet. The main culprit is texture alignment (a lot unpegging issues to go around) and, at least at this point, experimenting with linedef actions that aren't quite mastered yet. That said, the gameplay was decent enough, but most areas were too cramped and the floor overdetailed, which really creates a 'meh' feeling overall. Look forward to future, cleaner works, though. 4/10 -Snakes

There is some fun to be had here but visual glitches are abound, its a pistol start meanie, and the archvile/baron combos on maps 04-11 make for some impossible situations. My recommendation to author is to play your own maps before you rush'n'release! On the + side, track were decent! 2/5 -FoH ::FDA(map 11 only) -prboom+ 2.5.1 skill4::http://www.m ediafire.com/downloa d.php?lomgd24f242wei y(remove spaces)

i thought it was great. nice music choices, nice progression, a few fun ideas here and there, and breezy gameplay. bonus points for details like the debris laying on the ground in the hotel map. if i had to gripe about anything, id say to make your silent teleporters a little cleaner in the future. seeing sectors and monsters pop out of thin air like that doesnt look so nice. keep it up

      Conceptually a pretty cool map, have a nice retextures of wall using the ice floor, giving more context to the main theme of icy cavern present here, the layout is good, some room design are pretty good for the age it was done (especially the starting area) but it's unfortunately ruined by two things: excessive slippery floors and a no exit lava pit, as well as the random nature of switches placement that activates something... somewhere. Where is not given to you to known, the same things happens for a secret (mandatory) corridors areas that connect the said grave. But despite this, is not that bad, actually!

      Meh, conceptually is not a bad map but in reality is really boring. Lots of squares and platforms, lacks of powerful guns and a boring gameplay. Also how the exit can be activated? The teleports are shitty as well.

      Not a bad DM map, have a nice layout with many height variation but no textures variations unluckily, even the end is set on a random unmarked wall that is not even in the exit room. Gameplay is pretty neat, i like it even playing with the bots.

      This right here is one of the oldest joke wads ever made, and its parodies of bad map design are still relevant to this day.
