About This File

32 map megawad with collections of maps made from different periods of my doom mapping hobby, along with new ones. All old maps are re-polished to make them consistent in look with the newer ones. Maps are "progressively" chained together (so the previous map's end is more or less linked to the next one's start). Difficulty is medium, sometimes hard, but not insane. Experienced players can do it in UV without any problem.

HBFM29.wad: the full version of MAP29. Load this if you think your port/computer can handle the awesomeness (or laggyness) of it. Barely any gameplay difference, though.

In a few of the maps you find yourself wandering in a huge, depopulated labyrinth for ages until you find the exit. This makes them somewhat annoying. 5 stars for the rest!

Really good but all the caco fights where they are 30 with 2 pain elementals were so boring (like 10 minute each) and you have to kill them otherwise they'll reach the top of the map and block you, so you jsut lose much much time doing something not fun. Though the rest of the wad is really amazing and cool to play (maybe a bit dark), the midi version of hellbound and the map it's played really rocked!

On par with any wad you might think of or have ever played. Gameplay is stunning and visuals none too shabby either! Easily one of the best megawads out there, with excellent replay value as well. Amazing considering it's just one guy's work... Map29 probably makes it into my top 5 all time favorite slaughter maps!

Truly excellent. Architecture and level design is stunning. Difficulty levels are near perfect and attention to detail is staggering. One of the best wads in this whole database. A very talented level designer. Almost prefect. 5/5

This could possibly be a 2013 Cacoward, its probably the best singleplayer/coop wad I've played this year :) - DevilutioN

The gameplay is good throughout though there could still be a little more mixing up of the traps. The visuals for a wad which only really uses IWad textures range from very good to absolutely stunning. 5 stars just about. Definitely cacoward worthy.

The level of detail is nice but never goes overboard, the best IMHO. The design of most levels is large and encourages exploration, but sometimes the average amount of darkness and the complexity of paths you must take get a bit annoying. Overall, a good set of levels!

Finally some good levels are coming out after several disasters from the terryspammers who have nothing better to do with their lives. This is a very good set of levels... that provides al ot of fun and action. Not completely done with it, but I like what I see. 4/5

Likely one of the best Megawads I've ever played. I hope the author decides to make more like this!

Newer megawad that has consistently great visuals and level design, and manages to be varied and challenging without resorting to cheapness or devolving into yet another slautherfest ? Who could have guessed that thing like this actually exist.

This is a real masterpiece, perhaps the finest modern megawad. Map 16 is my new favourite urban-style map, gigantic beautifully detailed masterpiece that could be right at home in some Duke 3D mod. I played this with Brutal Doom, which is imo a pretty god match for this megawad (no new monsters, and difficulty never gets too high in a way that could damage playability with BD).

this map pack is seriously one of the most detailed, one of the most well paced ive played. ever. its one of the greats, and i suggest giving it a go. play with accessories to murder, brutal, (shameless promotional plug here...but seriously) operation inhuman, or pfenh to really bring out how modern it feels. solid, beautiful, fun. download it. cortlong50

The atmosphere is superb. City levels have a great 80/90's doomsday feeling, while Hell levels feels a lot like Doom 64. Probably the best Vanilla Megawad I have ever played. - Sergeant_Mark_IV

      Legendary. Once saw someone say that the maps were "ugly". They can have the opinion they want, but man, is this wad out of this world in terms of looks, gameplay and variety. A must-play.

      This had lots of fun exploratory elements and fancy visuals, but I wasn't so keen on the abundance of dark caves crammed with the larger Doom 2 beastiary. At first it started to feel like a commitment playing this wad with the first few maps leaving much to be desired, but I started having more fun when I reached maps that had more breathing room for running and gunning. The lesser maps really feel like they were early efforts, with some consisting almost entirely of cave crawls - made worse by the fact that many of them have hidden lines on the automap. Another thing to note: Ritenour seems to like putting things very close to the edge like a key or a switch, so make sure you check every corner carefully, as some solutions were very close to a cliff edge. Falling off could spell your Doom, as often the lower cliff ledges damage the player with no escape. There were also very thin ledges which could be climbed, so that was another easy to miss solution. Despite the low points dragging the experience a bit I greatly enjoyed the visual work of crashing waves, a clever skybox and nice island locales with mountainous structures and buildings. It was worth a visit in Doom's earthen vanilla equivalent - and it's quite the achievement for something this old, I just wish I could see where I was going in those darn caves...

      here for the seventeenth installment of dwspd, the theme is to build a canyon. like the previous installment, this is a relatively common theme for mapping, therefore the maps are expected to be pretty decent, and well they mostly deliver. once again Fredrik's map is the first one, and it blows everything else out of the water. kind of a bad thing to make it the first map to be honest though, because it could make some players believe that the other maps after it would be just as good, but that won't be the case when you play the rest, as they don't really have as much bite as that one does. to further exemplify that, once again the MAP02 slot is disappointing in comparison, while MAP06 and MAP07 are both unfinished (nothing but layout in MAP06, while it's pretty much impossible to get the red key in MAP07. not the worst to offer, and Fredrik's map serves as an insane opening challenge.

      dwspd's sweet sixteenth installment focuses on the theme of abandoned mines. now that's a good map to make a theme on, MAP26 is a personal favorite of mine for Doom 2, and these maps as a whole do pretty well to capture that theme. of course there's a few weak ones like MAP02, but at least they adhere to the theme. many of the maps have low monster counts and low challenge overall. the exception is naturally Fredrik's map, one of his most unforgiving. pretty ballsy to actually make that the first map to play here (you don't need the blue key by the way). not much else to say overall, other than thematically speaking this did pretty great.
