About This File

This Wad is large, well-made, very tuff, requires some thought to succeed but definitely isn't a 'puzzle box'!! Mostly, you gotta' figure out how you're gonna' kill stuff before it kills you. Lots of times you'll be forced to charge rather than flee. There are plenty of traps so you're gonna' have to think about that some too,
This wad has been tested for playability with a goal of making it a stern test for the best players. You will feel like you've really accomplished something if you beat it fair and square.
The wad features new sounds for weapons and some of the beasties. If you get as far as the first cyberdemon, he has a new, friendly greeting for you.
There are FOUR cyberdemons (sorry) one big spider, and lots of archviles... as well as the usual baddies...As always with tuff wads, SAVE whenever some- thing good happens or you'll be an old guy before you finish up. Also, be cool with the ammo or you may find yourself with only bullets and a chainsaw to kill the TWO cyberdemons in the final arena! Try to save your plasma until you really need it, like whenever you find a Cyberdemon. A SUGGESTION: Don't go to the 'slime room' until you've finished the 'yellow key' section. Good luck...
I welcome your feedback..wads can always get better...If you played "Bruiser" or it's twin "Bruised" and beat it, you may be ready for the 'turbo' version of that wad...It's lots tougher, with numerous monster and ammo 'upgrades', and very do-able for good players. E-mail me and I'll send it to you.

This is from 1997, so you know what to expect. Sound replacements range from comically retarded to decent. However, mapping and texturing is well detailed for its age. This map is a good example of how laughable nostalgiacs' claims about how nonlinear and intuitive map design was back in the day. In a nutshell, there are 3 locked doors around a central room with meandering corridors all over. Grab key1, backtrack to locked door1 which houses key2, and so on and so forth.

      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.
