About This File

-- achtung! the map replaces E4M3! -- Doomguy busted the Hell armada's ass again, right? Didn't he? Oh hell yes he did! But, as he was busting its ass, the nefarious hellspawn decided to take over a base on the Moon, owned by Our Hero's friend from high school. To make things worse, the base was working on research of an experimental acid, made for military purposes, so now there should be nukage all over the place. Hooray. The Doomguy says, exiting Hell to his clear and sterile Jupiter station: "Friends will be friends 'till the end". And so, carrying only his trusty pistol, Doomguy hops on a ship, entering "MOON" to its GPS. Mission: DEMONstr8 the powers of friendship to the ugly demons, get to your friend's secret bunker. Are you man enough?

Yep, we've gone faaaaar from Jupiter, but no one cares. If you want a plot, go to a library dammit! --------------------------------- Now, about the map itself: It is kinda inspired by Vrack 1 and 2. Much more simple in design, though. The map is quite tough, but with very few slaughter moments. The "hordes" are 25 Imps tops. Actually... Also, there is a "sewers" section, inspired by the bonus level of1 XBox Doom (E1M10: Sewers). For the folks who care -- 12750 sidedefs. A walkthrough demo is provided in the WAD, so don't complain about getting lost. -------------------------------- Oh, and if you actually play thru this, just leave a comment wherever you got it, it'll really mean me a lot :] Please? Or, if you're some sort of WAD reviewer... well you know what to do. Thanks!

      well, the concept is good  BUT...   WHAT THE FUCK EVEN IS THIS??

      Definitely shows its age. It was a real grind to play through, mostly due to the levels being boring, but also from a remarkable over-reliance on hitscan, especially shotgunners. For some reason. The third episode does indeed pick up much of the slack, but with the really fun levels being shining exceptions rather than rule for two thirds of the WAD it still left me annoyed and exasperated in the end. The maps look fine most of the time and the music is good to really good, which is something to hold on to. I would still advice my past self to skip most of this one.

      There's not too much for me to say about this one. While it isn't exactly my jam 100% of the time, I'm struggling to see how any creative endeavor could entertain me so thoroughly, throughout all the 32 parts of it. Ancient Aliens is charming, somewhat challenging, mysterious, well-paced... I could iterate over plenty of different variations of lavish praise, but I guess that in and of itself describes my feelings: AA is remarkably well-rounded. A DOOM blockbuster - and I use that description as an honest compliment rather than the pejorative it's sometimes thought of. One for the ages, and it'll be one of the WADs to which many of my future experience will be compared.

      On second thought, this wad is kinda mid if you ask me. After playing through all of it on pistol-start I wasn't really blown away by it. The midi pack that was made for this in 2020 was very nice if you ask me, but why this wad ever deserves a midi pack when it's so bland is what makes me scratch my head. Idk man, I didn't like this one as much as others do :/.

      This reads as an early example of arcade-style mapping.   Areas are defined largely by color combinations, with no real overarching theme to the map: there are silver techbase rooms, brick-like Earth rooms, red hellish rooms, without much in the way of detailing or setting-building -- all centralized around a square hub room with key doors, which repopulates with monsters each time you find a key. It's on the simpler side visually, but still a very clear step above "monotextured square rooms"-type design, with some solid architecture, shapes, and texture combos here and there, and even a clever crushing UFO-like "ring" at one point.    The gameplay concepts are very straightforward, with one exception being a room that has you platforming over damaging floor while closets of lost souls and cacodemons open up. Instead, the bulk of the fighting is more often dished out as blocks of monsters often revealed in closets -- blocks at a density far below what you'd consider slaughter. Some of the potential fun involves herding monsters towards barrels; once I waited several seconds for chaingunners to walk halfway across the room, right next to a clump of barrels I could blow them all up with. The ending fight is designed for you to pour rockets into two static cybs while circling, and I skipped that one.    Completed in a bit under 10 minutes.
