About This File

Fast action in an Arabian desert style town. Assault the town, clean out the troops, but expect the dead to return.

Considering that this is really old, this is actually quite awesome. A 20 year old WAD that looks decently and offers some challenge.

This map is a little bit challenging and not in the good way. The detail to the level is nice, but its too cramped for the number of enemies in the map.

Not devoid of merit but gameplay is total bullshit on UV skill and somewhat bullshit on HMP: spammed from all angles by 10,000 chaingunners, many above my eyeline. Architecture is boxy and forgettable. Texturing (both choice and alignment) is not good either. No atmosphere, it's just kill, kill, kill. So many monsters that killing becomes boring and I question the wisdom of using mainly Doom 2 monsters without Doom 2 weapons. 3 stars for amusing me for 1/2 hour.

Small level in brown bricks style. Layout is compact and a bit rectangular but works well, texture use spare but consistent, and overall ambiance is good. Gameplay @ UV is some form of city-guerilla; although a few snipers are positioned at nasty places and a bit much AV's add to the fun, it needs tactical fights - which is imho very nice. Overall: playing it was not too difficult but gave fun; rated as a 1994 map: absolutely not legendary, but solid 4/5, worth 20 minutes.

      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.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.
