About This File

A map I threw together in the spring of 2012 over the course of a night. I've fixed some bugs, added a few monsters, and did some balancing work since initial release.

Lakeside might also be named Loopside: every major area appears on your itinerary no less than twice, no backtracking. Don't want to pick off cliff imps in the start area? Pouring bullets into a fatso too slow? Ignore those Bezos. Come back with a bigger weapon.

 

Though the whole arsenal minus the BFG appears at some point, I ended up replaying this and restricting my options to the berserk fist and the carefully rationed plasma rifle. Naturally that implies a lot of punching, with the motley cast -- 89 monsters, many punchable, many not -- offering a slate of tricky, fun Tyson challenges. To get a max this way, navigating a pair of hectic infight-baiting scenarios is pretty much mandatory. I loved it. It makes good pugilistic practice. There is even a {spoiler}demon to fist.

 

This is a speedmap, also a positive! Speedmaps have two big traps to avoid: the first is outright sucking, the second is having no ideas and half-baked content. Once they do both, I usually like them.

Solid gameplay, just a little complain about the 2 arch-viles on yellow key room, it's just too hot for me in UV. The level layout and visual just good, feel like early 2000s maps, I didn't found any serious flaw and I like this.

 

Every DooMer who like classic maps should try this, nice job Megalyth!

A very well-made map with enough challenge to satisfy the average Doomer. I got whacked by the Archie. :) 4 stars. - Obsidian

Classic Doom design coupled with some really decent traps. This is the sort of map most anyone can enjoy as it's a short-but-fun journey to the finish line. Nice layout. 3.5/5

Good map design and architecture. The map could use more ammo though since I had to take out the last Arch Vile with my fists alone. But I had a lot of fun.

      Love the map's flow. Pretty tough for me (regardless of difficulties), yet it felt just right.

      It was fun (technically speaking). I was on the train and I had nothing to do. So I fired up this wad and chugged through a couple of these levels. Special thanks to my good friends iddqd and idkfa, they made this experience bearably amusing.

      Three levels in three separate WADs (EHD11, EHD12 and EHD14) dated March 31 1994 - 26 years and a day ago. The author, Ed Jankovsky - a student at Northern Arizona University, announced them on the same day in newsgroup alt.games.doom in a thread titled "Try These New Levels!!!"   https://groups.google.com/d/topic/alt.games.doom/VUFq8jK-RxM/discussion   The number of the exclamation marks in the subject reflected the author's excitement rather than the quality of the levels. Even by the standards of the day they were rather poor - Michael Kelsey's STONES had been out for several days already.   The only noteworthy level in this pack is EHD14. It's a 5x5 grid of empty 256x256 rooms, each with a teleporter in the center. No monsters or exit, this was probably meant to be a DM-only board. All weapons except the shotgun are present, as well as some ammo. There are a couple more rooms extending north from the north-easternmost grid cell, but to proceed you need to raise the bridge across the nukage first. The switch is in the center of the grid. Once you get to the northernmost room the things finally start getting interesting.   You can walk out of the map into the void through the north-eastern corner of that room. Then you can go west and circle the map to your heart's content, provided you keep far enough away from the two nukage sectors. You can even travel in the void between the individual grid cells and examine their contents from outside. Once you drop into the nukage sectors extending out into the void the journey is over, however. The nukage won't harm you and you can get back into the map but you cannot get onto the walkway or back into the void.

      Good wad, Although its an old wad but I really enjoyed playing it.

      Going Down is hard for me to review because of how unique it is despite being just another Boom compatible megawad. Plenty of megawads exist that have unique themes and brutal open ended levels but Going Down sets itself apart through intelligent use of Boom actions. No two maps feel exactly the same because under the hood they always have something different going on. Walls falling to reveal a new hellish underside, a dark mirrored version of our world, rooms that transform faster than you can blink an eye, and a literal descent into the mouths of hell are just a few of the things Going Down does to stay fresh. Go play it and you will not regret it.
