About This File

The mastermind has perished at your hands, you have single-handedly fought your way through all of hell. Feeling like you're on top of the world you return to Command HQ, thinking you're ready for anything they can throw at you. They tell you to clear the demons out of Antarctic Bunker #54, seems easy enough. After all, you did just destroy hell itself. However, what you found in the bunker was an unspeakable evil, one far more powerful than demons themselves.

FEATURES: 32 Levels. New weapons to replace the old ones along with some extra weapons. Advanced ACS scripting. Cutscene driven storyline. Tons of new music Epic boss battles. And much more.

10/10 best wad

I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it

 

5/5 to be a joke wad

This was great. Great joke wad and a great Terry trap collection.

Instead of the generic "Oh it's a well made map at first then BOOM" it's actually a well-made megawad that simply has them as little traps that can be avoided. It's able to be completed, seriously. That's new.

I especially love the final boss and highly suggest using a cheat against him. Trust me, do it, it'll be worth it.

An extremely well made MEGAWAD with difficult enemies, well designed maps, good animation, original midis created by one man alone in a garage, great decorate enemies that simply put SkullTag's monsters to shame, epic effects, well-scripted cutscenes that weren't even worth skipping, great voice acting and amazing gameplay.

 

PROS:

 

Map design was clearly done by an intellectual with OCD.

Voice Acting so great that it puts Hollywood to shame.

Lighting effects that make the latest Unreal Engine look like shit.

Cut-scenes that put some of the greatest, most epic movies to shame.

Great, addicting gameplay that makes Quake 3 Arena seem dull by comparison.

Amazing, well designed, original monsters.

Great music that is amazing compared to the PSX Doom OST.

 

CONS:

 

Didn't win a Cacoward.

Doesn't have a sequel.

 

Simply a ten out of ten review from me. This is like Alien Vendetta combined with the epic book, War and Peace.

Despite it being a terry wad... This is probably the best terry wad I have ever played. Did hell froze over?

 

Good stuff and congrats.

You know, i always hated terry traps. They are lame, with no effort, useless. A waste of time. But this, this entertained me more than any other "serious" wad. A bunch of amazing and well made maps, awesome and impressive effects, wacky yet catchy storyline, epic bullet hell like boss battles againt's mematic doom personalities, and the best is that this wad is a big fuck you to both the haters and the horribly bad terry wads.

 

Nice work!

This doesn't capture the spirit of UACMN, as the dialogue, the choice of enemies, the level design, and many other things are too different.

The storyline is epic, and consistent through the whole wad. Most wads don't even have a story that is explained with cutscenes, so this one stands out. I don't care what the others say, I love it!

This is a Crazy Terry WAD similar to UACMN. But this takes it to new extremes with those stupid rape jokes. Carnevil galore and oh, that final boss was crazy like an out of control Japanese video game. The Arena map (MAP20) was pretty funny. -PC

      An odd wad in which you play a Hexen class while fighting Heretic monsters in Heretic-textured levels. Surprisingly, it works pretty well, and is an interesting change of pace from either game. It retains Hexen's hub design, although it's not at all puzzley, just a "go and collect 3 items and return to the hub" quest. It's very combat-focused (there's almost 400 enemies in the final level), but unlike some Heretic maps, it doesn't end up feeling like a slog. Perhaps Hexen's weapons are just more powerful than Corvus's. The level design is very good, besides a couple of sore spots (the cramped areas of the lava level, the metal maze in the final level). The boss, D'Sparil, is much easier to kill than he was in Heretic; he probably should've been modded to have a better chance against Hexen's warriors.

      A fun heavily modified tougher version of Doom 1's E1M6 dated back in April of 94(yes same month of origwad). Its starts a bit hectic but with so many shotgun guys and plenty of health throughout the map, its actually not that hard to go through. However like any 94 wad, it has typical misaligned textures, a few HOMs, and had to use noclip cheat to grab the last card key due to ceiling being too low to pass under. Despite its age and a few minor stuff, its a fun wad from 1994 and I would recommend to give it a try :)

      Excellent wad for Hexen fans. It stays true to the style/spirit of the original game while introducing new ideas. The level / hub design is interesting, the combat is well-balanced, texturing is well-done and well-aligned, and there are plenty of interesting scripted events. The wings are used in a very smart way - you're able reach many previously unreachable items and paths. The only thing I disliked was the "boss" of the final level. I won't spoil it, but it's quite disappointing.   Unfortunately there is a bug in The Castle Of Fluft - the flame mask switch is not set to "repeatable", so if you try to use it without the prerequisite mask, you won't be able to use it again when you do. If you encounter this bug, type "puke 10" to activate the script the mask normally would.

      This seems like a semi-hidden gem. The author's other WAD Crimson Canyon won a Cacoward, though I prefer this one.   It certainly lives up to its namesake. The textures are all Hell's green marble and blood, supplemented with custom textures including some modified Giger designs and some creepy sprites I recognize from Monolith's Blood. The map designs are seriously contorted. It's probably a divisive aspect of the set. In some levels the angular layouts wrap around themselves in a jagged mesh, creating devilish mazes with slightly obscure progression, and where fireballs can fly at you from different parts of the map. Other parts are darker and more claustrophobic. It's all a totally hostile atmosphere.   There are some common themes gameplay-wise but you'll know them by map 2. A big one is ammo constriction, especially on UV. Certain maps seem near unbeatable without finding key secrets.   This was actually one of the first WADs I completed a few years ago, and on revisiting it it feels very fresh. Like most memorable WADs, it rides on strong concepts and some devilish gameplay while targeting a distinctive theme.
