About This File

A (maybe?) slaughtermap with a focus on nonessential exploration. About half of your time can be dedicated to these areas, but of course they reward you. The area is supposed to be an old company yard, the demon-riddled remains of the Big Bad's sister company, awkwardly under the same acronym. A small house turned into a brainwashing station, a barebones office space complete with horrible boss and pinky pit, a nature walk, a pavilion fortress next to both of the parking lot bullies, the toxic computer construction plant, and the guard post guarding your final destination: UAC (not that one, the other one) headquarters. This IS my first map, so player beware. Although I think I've done a good job. Criticism welcome, but construcive is preffered. I tried to test everything: trigger traps, 4 different environments, open and closed areas, hordes, a few strong enemies, etc. Some things I couldn't try in this map, so I'll attempt them in another level sometime. Difficulty is both extremes: easy is a wimpy breeze, normal is a fast-paced fight, but you'll probably have reserves of health and ammo to help you through it. Hard.. well. you'll be greeted by an appropriate message. This is more or less an update to an old wad by the same name, but I had it taken down until I could fix a few pretty big problems, to name a few: a fatty got stuck on a wall, you could slide into a blue key area and basically break the level, an archvile could target you at the start, and I forgot it's basically forbidden to use nazis. Thanks for trying out my level!

OK-ish, huge and open. Has some weird ideas, but also some quite good ones. The beginning is kinda rough, but later it becomes enjoyable. Though, I couldn't figure out how to get to the exit, so I noclipped. Sorry!

      IT JUST WORKS! Ok, with that stupid jojoke out of the way, we can start talking about this map:   It's a nice map from 1995 with some interesting room shapes (especially the one beyond the blue skull key door), the difficult and map flow is pretty easy and straightforward to navigate, don't fell discouraged by the large amount of enemies (it contains 120 monsters in total)! They're just cannon fodder for the majority of the map, expect for the final part with a arch-vile / cyberdemon combo near the exit, overall it could be easily beaten in 10 minutes or even less if you are a talented player... Enjoyable.

      Pretty 90s-ish, basic looking map sets into a tech / hell fortress of sorts, really large map that i've finished in 30 minutes, but luckily the map uses not really hard monsters to confront, making this pretty easy to finish, but again, is a long, LONG map with the most tedious parts are the mazes and that long backtracking stairs... Pretty meh   Also this map crashes on Doom 2 exe (DosBox) when you save the game, so i played it with a limit-removing dos port (doom 2 plus) without any trouble, so if you want to play this you had to use a limit removing port.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.

      The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.   The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.   I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.
      And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.
