About This File

My 32-level Megawad for Doom II/Final Doom, it has an MP3 Track for each level and text screen, uses ambient sounds from Doom 3, Quake 2 and others. Also uses textures from cc4-tex.wad and q2tex.wad. Requires Zandronum, skulltag_data.pk3, skulltag_actors.pk3, and cc4-tex.wad and q2tex.wad, all of them (except Zandronum of course) are included in the zip file, and though the Wad is meant to be played with Brutaldoom, it's not required. Overall the difficulty of the Wad is hard, so if you're a casual player, do it on easy, if you're a pro, do it on normal/hard, etc. Most of the levels are very large and may cause low frame rates. Uses enemies and weapons and items from Skulltag (though weapons may not work depending on the Zandronum version used). Read the Doom - Damnation.rtf file if you want more details and are interested in the story.

Follows the story of a space marine present on the planet of Kronos when a demonic invasion hits.

meh. There seemed to be too few monsters for the map layouts. Music was a bit overdone. Some of the maps didnt quite flow very well, and the ones that did were very repetitive, as if I was playing the same map 4 or 5 times in a row. This had alot of potential, but it failed in execution I'm afraid. Your second episode was much, much, much better. 2/5

Good stuff. I played this with BD on Black Metal and I must admit, I enjoyed the difficulty progression. I spent my entire Friday night and weekend playing this. My only criticism is that the music towards the end of this mega wad seemed kind of bland for all the stuff that was going on. Regardless, I give this a 5/5. I still have the music from map 19 stuck in my head.

music - overdone, and drowns out players sounds and takes up WAY too much space. too much detail in some areas, sloppy architecture, the level design simply won't stand up for themselves, i don't care about whether it plays good on brutal doom either, its simply not good enough, or average at most. In terms of the overall experience i would like to say it is inconsistent and unfocused, with too much reliance on the 'brutal' mod, which I found to be rather overrated anyway.

I'll give it 4 stars, if just because it has a few minor faults. I also don't feel it needs Brutal Doom in part because BD is overrated, buggy crap made by a guy with a massive ego.

The maps are boring and gameplay is repetitive, the geometry is blocky, THE 200+ MB OF MUSIC IS UNNECESSARY AND CONTRIBUTES NOTHING TO THE EXPERIENCE, and the ambient sounds are so spammed that they often cut each other off (and worse, they cut THE PLAYER's sounds off). I think you need more practice before trying to make a megawad on your own. You can't just say "play it with Brutal Doom" either. A map must be able to be good on its own, it shouldn't require a modification to make it playable. 1/5 ~Aenima

-anyakelsick- Never seen a wad with so much thought put into it! LOved the ambient sounds and I completely disagree with Aenima the music is a massive contribution to the experience of this game, and goes very well with the levels (which are fucking epic!). Definitely read the story that goes with it.!awesome. ABSOLUTELY DESERVES A CACO AWARD!

That was awesome! Great architecture and level polishing, fantastic atmosphere though the ambient sounds are a bit overused in some areas but the mp3 music is great! Excellent gameplay (though mediocre without Brutal) the addition of the skulltag runes was a good idea, great level progression though doing most of the levels pistol start doesn't work so well, and good story (people should definitely read the .rtf file that comes with the Wad, it's very well done).

The hell levels with Brutal Doom were brutally awesome - the best I have ever seen. The fighting is intense. Atmosphere is awesome. Ambient sounds - I loved them. @Aenima: Your review sucks. If you don't want to play a wad that requires a specific modification - THEN DON'T PLAY THE FUCKING WAD. 7 stars out of 5. This work deserves a cacoward.

      honestly the weirdest wad that ever released. play it if you have the option.

      The most avant-garde Doom will ever get. Obviously not a WAD for everyone, the core target for such a mod is mainly people who are in video game glitches, corruptions and to some extent, creepypastas (whether that love is ironic or not). Nothing works as it is supposed to. You can hardly understand most of the things that are happening to you. Some of the custom monsters (like the hitscanning corrupted pinky) will put you on edge and keep you paranoid about the ruleset of the game.   The aesthetic of lilith.pk3 is one of a kind, horribly mangling the rendering engine of old ZDoom beyond belief to disform sprites, textures, text and even sound effects. The end result makes close to no sense, your Doom marine sprite is heavily dislocated and looks more like one of those creatures from Alien than a human being and the list goes on and on. The confused looks obviously doesn't always make for clean or concise gameplay, especially in later levels which crank the confusion up to eleven and manipulate the level geometry to do things you thought weren't possible in the game. Even basic things like crushers, slime pits or a turnstile look horribly out of shape and makes the player uncomfortable.   This is essentially what lilith boils down to: an unfamilarity to something we thought we knew by heart, a rising sense of uncomfort as the level design makes less and less sense and offering the player a new perspective on what Doom is. Don't play lilith expecting top-notch Doom gameplay, but play it for the one of a kind experience it offers you. For the better and for the worse, there are no WADs like lilith anywhere and there will never be.

      I think that the combination between shotgun and chaingun combat, and the hitscanner shootouts this WAD offers are really fun and engaging. Pinky Demons are placed in areas where they're not frustrating, (The opposite being something I see very often, nice work Romero :P.) My only issue with this WAD is that one or two of the secrets, specifically those found in the darkened tech room, are sort of esoteric. The one where you have to jump from a platform isn't the worst, but the one for the Mega-Armour is annoying and in my opinion, unfair to find.   Despite these small issues, I think that Phobos Mission Control is an excellent and exciting level to run through, and I applaud Romero for returning to the Doom Community to make new levels.

      this wad SAVED MY MARRIAGE. 3/5

      LOCAL DINGUS PLAYS EVERY SINGLE DOOMER BOARDS PROJECT PART 2: CIRCLE OF CAINA SP   (if you don't know what the Doomer Boards Projects are, here's the Doom Wiki article on them)   The next installment of the Doomer Boards Projects, April 2018's Circle of Caina SP, helmed once again by 40oz, is a notable step up from its predecessor. Inspired by FraGMarE's "icy deathmatch map" of the same name (y'know, minus the "SP"), it's a set of eight levels based around a wintry theme and it single-handedly got me excited for the rest of this series.   First and foremost, this WAD looks incredible. Every arena feels very distinct from the last - none of these fights blend in with one another and they're all the better for it. 40oz chose an amazing resource pack for that month, with the textures being perfectly suited for the cold, jagged landscapes. Normally, I either wouldn't notice the blockiness of the terrain because I'm so used to it in Doom or I'd dock points for it, but here, it works so well with the vibes of each map that I honestly love it. I'm already partial to ice/snow levels in video games for a ton of reasons, so this WAD going all in with the lighting and icy aesthetics makes me so happy. The music choices are also perfect (other than Hell Revealed MAP16's MIDI for "Cold Shoulder" for some reason but it's not that out-of-place), with a lineup of classic MIDIs that also happen to evoke that chilly feeling.   That's not to say it's all style and no substance, though - even if the fights do feel like they have a less intense bite overall than MoM, there are a lot more tricky "gotcha!" moments here that really keep you on your toes for longer. Each new arena feels dynamic and well thought-out (even the random pop-up monsters in MAP08 that feel a bit forced in but still work somehow even though you got a free BFG (the only BFG in the set, if I'm not mistaken) in the first room and plenty of cells along the way so it doesn't even really matter but whatever). The whole WAD flows super well, too, and lends itself very well to marathon sessions. Each map has a degree of momentum that keeps everything moving at an enjoyable pace.   I found the ammo balance to be a lot more generous than Monuments of Mars for this one too. I don't know if I'd necessarily say that means this WAD is "easier," but it feels a lot more beginner-friendly (as in, me. that's me. I'm beginner) and makes fights feel a lot fairer. Outside of MAP07, "Below Zero," being WAY harder than every other map in the set (and almost every map in DBP1, for that matter), the difficulty stays pretty consistent throughout. MAP01 starts out really simple and minimalistic, MAP08 is a bit of mini-slaughter, you know, the usual.   For me, the show-stealer is MAP05, "Frosty Cream Glade." It is maybe one of the greatest Doom maps I've ever played. It doesn't look like much when you first see it, but the way everything is so interconnected and how clever yet simple the encounters are and how pretty the visuals are and how the nonlinearity of the map lets you tackle the encounters in almost any order you want so it feels a lot more personalized and how the map's layout means that part of the puzzle is figuring out how to get where you want to go and the indirect signposting is so well-done that you're probably guaranteed to find it but it still feels satisfying AAAAAAAAA I love this map it's so good. If there's one's map you need to play from this set, it's "Frosty Cream Glade." The AUDACITY of supercupcaketactics to use the MIDI from Scythe 2 MAP21 and somehow completely justify its placement is something I aspire to.   This WAD's far from perfect - 40oz's maps can be underwhelming, some of the levels' freeform nature greatly hurt their pacing ("Cold Shoulder"), they take FOREVER to give you a rocket launcher (you don't get one until MAP04, that's annoying), MAP04 and MAP08 use the exact same MIDI which is really jarring when you play MAP08 for the first time, and for whatever reason MAP05's exit is tagged as a secret even though it's not hidden at all and is required - but I'm getting nitpicky. Circle of Caina SP is a fantastic set of levels from some highly talented people working with a theme that I'm already a huge fan of. Definitely a WAD to check out if you've got a few hours to spare.   OVERALL RATING: 8/10 FAVORITE MAP: MAP05 - "Frosty Cream Glade" (by supercupcaketactics) LEAST FAVORITE MAP: MAP03 - "Some Other Circle" (by 40oz) (it's not terrible by any means but it feels kinda meh compared to the other maps) HARDEST MAP (for me at least): MAP07 - "Below Zero" (by 40oz) MAP YOU SHOULD PLAY FIRST IF YOU WANT A SAMPLER: MAP01 - "The Chill Before The Thrill" (by noisyvelvet)
