About This File

Twelve levels designed for the 25th birthday of Doom speedrunner Dime! The restrictions given to the designers were:

- Boom compatibility (a.k.a. PrBoom+ -complevel 9) - No green or blue armor - Maximum 75 monsters - In the style of scythe map 22-24 gameplay (texture use is up to [one]self) - Must [have] a BFG, but only a maximum of 200 cells in the map INCLUDING BFG pickup.

All levels were played by Dime on his Twitch channel. He wrote on Doomworld afterward that "From Melbourne streets, to green scythe, to near impossible maps it was all a blast." Said "near impossible map" is included as MAP32 and cannot be reached in normal gameplay; you must warp to that level to play it.

For a collection of birthday maps, this one is actually good. Some ehh maps (oh look, joe-ilya, the best mapper of all time, graces us with yet another divine creation; and there's also clearly offensive and crass trollmap that is 32), but also some nice and competent ones, given the gameplay-related restrictions. And kudos to Breezeep for competent Valiant ripoff, heh.

Great WAD. Good looking levels and very challenging gameplay. It's borderline on slaughterfest, but it maintains a fair level and always gives you room to manuever. Well done, everyone.

Thoroughly enjoyed it and would happily play more maps in this vein. Short, sweet, and action-packed with a nice sprinkling of visuals too. Recommended. -TRRobin.

      It's large 1995 map. Starting area is looking nice, but later author lost creativity and made mazy corridors. Very challenging because of overuse of chaingunners. It's extremely annoying. Lots of traps, Some clever, some not fair.

      Too linear in my tastes looking back now, will do better with my next projects!

      For 95' map is really ok. A bit "blocky" design, but not bad. Map is rather big, it takes me 40min but i get lost in one place. Some good traps, IMO kinda challanging at the begining, before you get ssg. Overall good classic wad.

      Fun map that captures a nice TNT-ish feel with plenty of weird yet also nice looking rooms, groups of hitscanners and demons to blast through, and a sense of adventure to it. Taking the MAP14 slot, you would see the episode 2 skybox of TNT: Evilution and listen to the track "Cold Subtleness", both creating a nice atmosphere to the map. Worth checking out!

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.
