About This File

"...It was the pinnacle of burgerdom. Finally, the long summer's study in Aberdonian cuisine and bovine mating rituals had yielded of a supple, juicy tower clad with buns too good to slap and the fattest sow the YEDS had ever sewn. The chief engineer-turned-overlord of foodstuffs, Percival Mechacook, deemed it necessary to awaken Shaitoken from his long winter's slumber to celebrate this yuletide achievement. Together, they would drive the Yeoman Engineers of Software and Design into a golden age of quality dining and unencumbered festivity. Christmas would take on a whole new meaning, and this time there would be no mistakes...

The burger was transported cross-country with 48 (respectably delicious) dummy-meals for protection. It was these meals that prevented the dreaded Hamburglar from eating everything in the back of the truck, his gristly whiskers lapping up the meat with fevered relish. Instead, the disgusting tramp of a man was only able to consume a whole 7 of the burgers before his stomach gave way and he was forced to ship the rest of them to his top secret Threecock Christmas Facilities for quality assessment.

One of these facilities now houses The Prize... but how long before it goes bad, or is eaten by the Hamburglar? Will this meaty masterstroke be the saviour of Christmas, or its ultimate undoing?"

...

And the Hamburglar puzzled, till his puzzler was sore Then thought of a thing that he hadn't before! "Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from McDonalds." "Maybe Christmas... perhaps... cannot be robbled!" And what happened then? Well... in Doomworld they say, That the Hamburglars hidden penis grew three sizes that day!

And then he was arrested for lewd conduct with Joe-Ilya in the men's room of a McDonalds. The Yeoman Engineers and Designers of Software carried out the arrest and swiftly carried out a military tribunal. Hampton C. Burglar was found guilty of billions of counts of burger larceny and poorly concealing his penis in the titlepic and sentenced to death by firing squad.

Credits

esselfortium for getting the resource wad set up, and making some super sick textures, Shaikoten in his usual hosting and TITLE/INTERPIC duties, Xaser and nub_hat for tireless compilation and dealing with last minute changes, dew for being basically the gameplay director. Pretty much the same as last time!

Base

New from scratch

Build Time

One day for layouts, a week for refining, followed by a couple lazy weeks of bugfixes

Editors Used

Pretty much all of them.

A bunch of nice maps up to and including MAP31. All maps above that can be skipped. Very good visuals and decent gameplay and it's impressive when you consider that these are speedmaps. Good job. Disgusting hudface, though :(

Of the 42 maps, I reckon about 24 were enjoyable enough to recommend that you play this - particularly as they're all in the main 30 maps. The secrets and extras... Can comfortably be skipped. -Phobus

Fantastic megawad. I have only minor complaints. Some maps tend to be a wee bit too heavy on hitscan enemies for my taste. Also, I'm certain that there exists special part of Hell designed specially for map 16's author.:)

map42, lol - https://www.youtube. com/watch?v=_DzPyHP1 O9Y&list=PLTK5UMTFDo 8-SDAZMLh7wCJitmly6Z BhM pretty easy to see how that went into the side episode and the last map at that. Side episode has a lot of average to subpar maps (though usually not as bad as the bad parts of 32in24sp.wad), main megawad is generally quality and best SP 32in24 so far. I won't hold the side episode against the rating, I know 32in24 maps don't just get thrown away completely. First possible caco of 2015 perhaps.

Considerably better than the previous 32in24 sp
Other than the inevitable delays, of course...
Can a 32in24 ever have 32 maps in 24 hours again?
Kick ass game play in the final product but-
Sadly, cannot give 5 stars due to false advertising.

4/5, would read first letters of each line again. -TMD

      A long, fun slaughter romp, with a lot of gorgeous detailing. I'm not the best slaughter player, I did not use any of the God spheres until the final battle, and I had very little trouble beating this on UV.

      What starts as a neat idea just becomes tiring and irritating after the first couple maps. This wad is honestly just a joke that overstays its welcome.

      A very flashy map set that sadly lacks a lot of substance. There's a lot to like here, but also a fair bit to dislike. The theme and aesthetics are nice if not a bit too dark and detailed at times, and I actually enjoyed the narrative. Lovecraftian themed wads and mods seem to be pretty popular lately, and with good reason. The music was pretty fantastic, I especially liked the E1M5 " Suspense " remake. The boss fight was also pretty interesting and fun, but it did tend to over stay its welcome.   Now to discuss what made the wad more of a bad experience than a good one sadly. What brought this map pack down for me the most was the lack of any fluid gameplay and some honestly very tedious custom enemies. A lot of time is spent camping doorways and thinning out the horde before you can enter a room. Once you clear the big baddies out and proceed into the room you can expect to do the same again, as every key and switch you press results in a very predictable monster ambush. The custom monsters for the most part were fine albeit a bit repetitive ( too many different lost soul-esque enemies that fly about and spit projectiles at you ). The biggest offender for me was the Hell Archon. This guy was a big meat wall that takes a lot of time and rockets to bring down. After the first couple encounters with him I had lost all interest in fighting him. Unfortunately for me, I had to deal with his tanky ass most of the time as a lot of scripted sequences in the map couldn't be completed until he was dead.   Pros:   -cool theme -great atmosphere -very pretty and colorful maps -great soundtrack -good boss fight concept   Cons: -slow tedious gameplay -repetitive maps -irritating/unnecessary custom enemies -boss fight last a little too long

      I didn't really enjoy this wad; compared to the IWADs or other 90's PWADs that I've played. The visuals were 90% brown brick/rock. Pistol Start balance sucked. And the gameplay/map progression was mostly uninteresting. I'll keep the negativity to a minimum so - overall score: 1/5.

      Very solid maps. Not incredibly fond of the ambush-y stuff, especially towards the end when it started to get tiring. The map layouts were superb, and the music choices were fitting. Good effort.
