About This File

This is a reupload of the 1995 megawad Cleimos 2 to repackage it in a manner suitable for modern users. The original version uploaded to /idgames was a pair of ZIP files, cleim20a.zip and cleim20b.zip, each containing half of the megawad and each of which were small enough to fit on a 3½-inch floppy disk. Once both ZIPs were extracted, the user would then have to use a batch file using DOS' (and Windows') "copy /b" command to combine both halves of the WAD to create the full megawad. Because floppy disks have been obsolete for decades, this process is no longer necessary and serves only to deter non-Windows users from playing it. Thus, both halves have been combined into one file which can be used in any source port directly.

cleim20p.zip contains the complete Cleimos 2 WAD file alongside the original text file and the two GIF images, but none of the batch files or the copy of DEUSF since neither are necessary to play it in modern source ports. However, the original cleim20a.zip and cleim20b.zip, with the split WAD and all of the omitted files, are bundled with this version as well, complete with /idgames archive timestamps, for historical interest and to satisfy the permissions specified in the text file. The original two ZIPs and their text file also remain available on the archive as separate downloads.

Note that the in-game demos were recorded with Doom II v1.666, and therefore will not play correctly unless you use that version of the game executable or a source port that can emulate that version such as PrBoom-plus.

Horrible WAD, really bored with the many mazes found in the levels, stopped playing in level 17. Also, which mapper in its own judgement set the way out of a map as secrets?? It would have been a decent WAD without the annoying overload of mazes and puzzles

I actually really enjoyed this mapset - it's not perfect, and there were some annoying maps (map 16) but overall I found it to be rather unorthodox and enjoyable in a cutesy '94/'95 kind of way.

I had a great time with this but it's far from every Doomer's cup of tea. Many puzzles, many mazes, and lightweight opposition save for a few bigger fights(and even those aren't too hard). MAP27-30 are DM maps but show up as short bonus maps in SP mode. They're a weak climax, but so are MAP25(complete torture) and 26(short and easy). Play this if you can enjoy a more slow-paced, brain-twisting adventure.If you want the brutal, tricky dogfights of recent pwads then you shouldn't bother.

pretty cool old-skool style set of maps. there's a few annoying puzzle and maze bits that lack any good hints though, which really brings it down. also many levels lack supplies.

      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.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
