About This File

This is a re-interpretation of the original DOOM & DOOM II levels. It pretty much is a retelling of the DOOM story in a more up-to-date format. This wad contains 34 levels and it is an attempt to recreate the original DOOM maps while still keeping the classic DOOM experience.This wad includes cut-scenes (that are skipable), smooth DOOM weapon animations, a couple of new weapons including the railgun with sniper scope, and a second pistol you can pick up and go Lara Croft on some demon scum. For the most part, it's a tribute to DOOM. Jumping and Crouching may be required. Any addons will be available on www.zdoom.org within the DOOM Tribute thread under the Project portion of the ZDoom forums.

I'm biased when it comes to Alando's stuff. I'm a huge fan of his Temple of the Lizardmen series so when I found out he was doing a Doom Tribute project I was excited for it to come out.

 

He didn't disappoint either. This is a damn fine retelling of both Doom and Doom 2 using some ZDoom effects to good measure. It's not bloated with these effects either. Aside from cutscenes (which can be skipped), swimmable liquids, and some slopes, they really didn't get in the way of what I felt like was an authentic classic experience. Some areas can be a bit tough if you're not ready (some of the ambushes get really hectic) or make good use of ammo management as you do restart some episodes with just a pistol despite it being a continuous experience.

 

While I don't see it happening, I'd like to see Alando do the same thing with Final Doom one day. I think he could come up with something really great if he ever decides to venture into those titles.

 

I highly recommend this.

Splendid job in nostalgia department. Good job connecting the levels. Plays very good in multiplayer. This is a cacoward candidate. Difficulty: very easy.

Great tribute to Dooms 1 and 2! Lotta places very similar to the iWads, yet laid out differently and with nice additional detailing. The custom monsters worked well with this, as did the custom sprites and sounds. Good scripting as well.

every place in the game feels like it has a purpose, all while having smooth progression and just in general being very fun to play. good job!

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.
