About This File

Power Metal - Because it's less Heavy than Black Metal.

Power Metal is a large level for Doom 2 dedicated for single player and cooperative play in limit removing source-ports with classic settings in mind. It has nearly 1000 monsters and can take about 1 hour to beat on Ultra-Violence.

Power Metal uses Freedoom textures for better ambiance. Freedoom license file should be included within the archive in which this WAD comes in and it's also incorporated into the .WAD file itself. You can open the .WAD file and view the license with WAD editing program such as SLADE.

Jumping and crouching must be disabled for this map or else players may be able to skip certain areas and break the intended gameplay. A MAPINFO lump has been incorporated for ZDoom-based source-ports that enforces these rules. In my opinion there are also no areas where freelook would be necessary and I prefer to play without it wherever possible, but that's up to you.

Difficulty levels are implemented in a way that easy difficulties disable large portion of enemies, while "Hurt me plenty" only disables a few of them that I thought could be decisive to player's approach to health and ammo conservation.

Impressive actually. It's okay IMO to up the difficulty a lot. I had fun destroying the demons (and dying) :)

Technically quite good, but on places way too repetitive or just to simple architecture, and the gameplay is much too repetitive and leans way too much on snipers and slaughtery monster overdoses, which makes playing the adventure quickly just unattractive. 4* for the map + 1* for the gameplay makes small 3*. If this level would have been cut in half, and gets smart and varying gameplay instead of gameplay based on an overdosis monsters, I would have given solid 4*.

wide open areas, often cnp-design... too much time-consuming to get to situations which are entertaining, not good not bad

Average design that reminds of early 2000s, and gameplay is an unrepentant grind in HR2's worst traditions. Monsters are just randomly thrown in bunches everywhere and don't serve any real parpose whatsoever.

The new sprites seem out of place, they just don't fit. Didn't finish the map as it was too repetitive over time and monster placement felt random most of the time, like they weren't used strategically but just tossed into the rooms. Reminds me of my first Doom2 maps.

Huge, hard level. Has solid squads of revenants, barons and arachnotrons even from start! Despite this, gameplay is very balanced, there are always some ammo and health somewhere in the crannies. Freedoom textures suit good with original Doom monsters, the level is well-detailed. I give Power Metal five stars with no doubt.

Massive map. I haven't beat it but I've saved partway through. The beginning bit was a little repetitive visually but the rest of the map looks stellar. Had trouble on UV, but it seems as though difficulty levels are implemented because I am finding it a little easier on HMP. Overall fun stuff, definitely will try this in a cooperative server.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
