About This File

After too many hours I have finally completed my second complete external wad file for use with the registered version of Doom. As promised, the zip file also contains a re-release of my first wad megawatt.wad. This new version of megawatt has the bugs fixed and now has difficulty levels implemented. For those easily offened by satanic overtones, neither level uses any satanic textures. Megawatt replaces level one of episode one and Megalab replaces level two of episode one. Both levels contain multi-player and deathmatch starting points, and skill level options.

Two pretty good maps from 1994 that have some interesting ideas in them that show the author wasn't afraid to experiment. With some minor changes these two levels could go from decent to good.

Impressive work for ~20 years ago, Casey. A theme i notice with a lot of these "old, but decent" maps is that they look really cool in the Automap. E1M2 confused me for a while - The exit is where you fight the 2 barons!

This gets an instant star for the phrase "internet e-mail address" in the readme. Megawatt is E1M1, Megalab is E1M2, but they're two separate files, from April 1994, very old. Megawatt is decent for 1994 but too simple nowadays. It feels like a prototype of Megalab, which is good fun - not much detail, but the basic layout is solid, and the gameplay rattles along. A few bugs (stuck monsters, too-long walls if you play in Doom.exe) but nothing serious.

Megawatt is ok, but Megalab is really neat for a 1994 pwad, with a non-linear design and all. Gotta love the disclaimer for "those easily offened by satanic overtones". 3/5 for MW and 4/5 for ML

Some HOM, unmarked doors\lifts, and bad texturing(room high doors). Absolutely incredible for '94 otherwise. MEGAWATT is hard, make sure not to fall off of the ledges in the slime rooms! 3 stars for MEGAWATT, 4 for MEGALAB. 4 overall, you'll have fun playing these.

      Disregard earlier review server error caused me to download the incorrect file. So what do I like? The textures combined with the sharp lighting contrast between heavy dark and rather bright areas. What I don't like is the rather empty feeling level with large rooms and corridors filled with medium tier enemies on Ultra Violence, i.e cacodemons and hellknights, while only given a shotgun and chaingun. The issue with this is that encounters become more tedious than dangerous. I would add a super shotgun or spread out the medium tier enemy placement. The level detailing leaves a lot to be desired with the large empty grey rooms/corridors reminding me more of Half-Life than Doom. With some more detailing and better monster/weapon placement I would rank this higher but as it stands this level leaves a lot to be desired.

      the map looks good visually but what does the have to do with doom 64? and how do I kill an archvile with a pistol? and a cyberdemon with a chain gun?
