About This File

3 episode wad for ultimate doom with the usual tech/hell tech/hell setup with a few exceptions from time to time. This is an expansion from my cbspeed.wad I realeased last August, so the first episode is an updated version of cbspeed with hopefully improved gameplay and layout flow. Episodes 2 and 3 were solely built from scratch. The wad is designed to hopefully give a varied and at times challenging gameplay experience.

Nice and interesting megawad, nice architecture, textures and monster placement.

Only complaint would be the ending of last map E3M8 (I guess), it was too excessive to be attacked at the same time by 3 cyberdemons, 8 barons and 10 shotgunners

Done with these settings:

 

- GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. complevel 3.

- Hurt Me Plenty.

- Continuous combined with a pistol start mindset.

- Saves every 10 minutes or so.

 

A good megawad of varying levels of enjoyment. The aesthetics are quite simple, it's all Doom textures, maps are mostly structured in similar ways, that is a lot of symmetry in some maps, square shaped rooms, semi-circle stairs and big spacious areas. I found the maps to look just good enough to keep me immersed into the gameplay, and it got better in the third (and fourth) episodes. A few maps play with darkness and/or complete lack of light in some parts, which added pressure specially when dealing against hordes or turrets. There's a nice selection of midis, except for the one in E3M1, I liked them all. 

 

Gameplay was fairly enjoyable, most of the time. One would think that, the absence of Doom II enemies and the SSG would lead to boredom or repetitive battles. That might happen sometimes here, it can depend on your willingness to enjoy the limitations of the first edition, if you're accustomed to see all the bestiary, but it also depends on what the maps have to offer, and I think ConC.E.R.Ned succeeded at developing interesting encounters at times. In many occasions, you have to skip enemies to look for weapons and ammo; in other situations you get ambushed by teleporting enemies from several points, whether you get to squeeze through them or not it's up to each player; or use your agility to be as least exposed to crossfire as possible. There's a questionable use of barons in the mapset, sometimes too many of them and not in a threatening way, and sometimes replacing a UV cyberdemon that wasn't any necessary to be replaced. Although there are good moments, like tight traps where you are given rockets to use. I liked that the two boss-tiers were frequent since the first episode, there's even a map dedicated to cyberdemons in the third episode, and a hidden spiderdemon serving as a sort of Romero Head in the last map (the photo, though, unexpected). 

 

In terms of secrets, the usual ones are computer panels probably flashing, in episode 1, a different texture in a square shaped pillar, or a secret tiny green switch somewhere. I got accustomed after a while, despite I'm not a fan of hitting random walls. All provide nice rewards, though. 

 

My favourite maps are E1M4, E2M6, E3M8, while the rest are good and ok, also some are a bit uninteresting, specially from episodes 1 and 3. 

 

Overall, I had fun, would recommend it to anyone who's loves no revenants anywhere, as a change of pace. Also, add Draft Excluder and play this as a full 36-maps megawad. Without it, my rate for the three episodes as a whole is 7/10.

concerning indeed. I liked this better than Hadron.wad, but that's not saying much since I'm not a fan of the egregious teleport traps. say what you want but this tends to be too much for me.

Now this is really fun and addictive vanilla dooming. Well designed in every way. Cannonball proves again his worth! What more can be said other than that you must play this is you love old school dooming. 5 stars. -TRRobin.

Yes,this wad is cool in all directions :D However,the trolling ending with Doomguy2000 is not suitable here (I speak about Doomguy2000 in order to expose the truth)!

A good Ultimate Doom megawad that managed to hold my interest for at least 2 episodes. E1 suffers from a few noticeable errors - namely map design remains fairly bland and uninteresting for the most part. This is definitely an example of a wad that gets better as it progresses and it's a shame that the it has to be dragged down, but so it goes. Regardless, this is worth the download, even if for only E2 and E3. 3.5 -Snakes

I feel legitimately challenged when I play this megawad, especially when played with Brutal Doom!

A very fun map set for the original 3 episodes of Doom that uses the pre-Doom II balance excellently to create a challenge that doesn't wear thin or out-stay it's welcome. Highly recommended.

Concerned? .... well I don't have too many concerns about this, maybe some of the music replacements as we have heard them before in Cchest and av, etc. But anyway, a fantastic megawad, brilliantly engineered maps and a superb tribute to 2002ADO E3M7 too which personally was my favorite map I had ever made. Very fun to play, tons of secrets and beautiful architecture, nice design in the maps and good puzzles. gives this a 5/5 rating from me.

E2 and E3 are the best, but I don't really think E1 is weak enough to drag it down, especially since it can be simply skipped. 5/5 for me, it gave me a good enough first impression and then built on it, with some very strong maps (E2M5, E2M7, E3M5, E3M7, E3M8) in the second half. Honestly I think E2M8 and E3M3 are weaker than anything in E1, but they're the only weaker maps in E2/E3. Should have gotten a caco for sure, though there were already good picks.

My only concern is that it will be difficult to come up with a WAD for the first DOOM which manages to provide an experience like this one, without the enhanced monster pool from DOOM II. My personal favorites were E2M7 and E3M8 - complex maps with tons of monsters (up to 500+ even on low difficulties) and lots of exploration to do. The epic fight on the lava lake in E3M8 will certainly stay in my memory for a while. If you ever thought DOOM I was too easy, play this and think again...

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
