Confinement 256

About This File

This originally started out as my (Xyzzy01) set of 20 or so maps for ZDoom, but later turned into a full-fledged community project!

The area of each map the player has access to can only as big as a 256x256 map unit square, similar to the rules of mapping for Congestion 1024, Claustrophobia 1024 (and its sequel), Confinement 512, Congestion 384, Congestion 192 and numerous 2048 wads.

I just thought 256 fit in as the perfect combination of 64's simplistic, minimal design and 1024's more serious, detailed design.

The Doom community's 39 map submissions are bundled with my original 22 map campaign.

there were some interesting things here and the real set itself was quite a load of fun. the community map pack itself was a hit or miss, didn't get the secret hub thing and many of the scenarios boiled down to "if you can't kill this monster point blank shotgun you die" which really got frustrating. some of the maps aren't even possible to max if I recall. i liked that one boss shooter map the most, where you can shoot the wall over and over while monsters appear in front and behind you.

Considering how extreme the limitation was for these maps, there was some really interesting scenarios. This really is a cool addition to the confinement projects.

      Nice level. Not overly challenging. The architecture was simple but effective. Fun to play.

      Simple and easy map to waste your time while you don't know what to do with your time. Things what I liked:
      1. Some detailings and skybox
      2. Music

      Things what I disliked:
      1.Flatness. Not much of height varation.
      2.Most of places contain cheesable fights, not even last one could destroy me, because you can simple abuse walls or strafe around areas and there are plenty of ammo.
      3.This kind of personal thing, but I couldn't see why this map requires zdoom or gzdoom. No special effects or 3d floors were used, feels more like boom format map. 

      Anyway, for effort, I'm leaving 3 stars.

      * Hell Ground Review *   Pros   - Maps are very visually gorgeous. Architecture is smooth and Gothic themed. Bravo on this! - LOTS of combat. Challenging, yet this WAD is not a slaughterfest. More on this in the “Cons” section. - Music is great, except Map 6. Oriental music just does not go well with this Map. - The best map is the final map, Map 7 – Mystery of Hell. It is HUUUUGE. Set aside your entire afternoon for this map. It has 15 secrets and you will not find them unless you have all day.     Cons   - Absolutely hated the sound effects. - You’ll get the BFG 9000 before you will get the Plasma Rifle if you fail to find the Plasma Rifle’s secret beforehand – in the previous Map. - Although not a slaughterfest, many enemies appear out of the ground just about every time you utilize the “Use” button. Many combats were close quarters – off course, AFTER the monsters appear from nowhere and/or the ground. - Map 3 (Paranoia) starts you off in a small room with 4 firing Chaingunners that suddenly pop up from the ground, each in a corner. Good luck with that. - Level 4 (Warp of Time) is a nightmare. I have played literally hundreds of WADS and I've never once “IDCLEV’ed” a map. But I did so after completing approx 75% of this map as I had enough of it. - Level 6 is just plain useless. You “free fall” for 30 seconds. Then walk (a virtual) 10 miles.     All in all, I just didn’t have fun with Hell Ground for all the reasons in the “Cons” section. I have no idea why so many praised this WAD, let alone what it’s doing in the 2009 Cacowards. I've seen much better work from the author, Alexander "Eternal" S. (aka Deadall).   It was the "suddenly appearing" monsters and the horrible sound effects that annoyed me the most, not to mention Maps 4 and 6. Considering the WAD is comprised of only 7 maps, two of these seven maps being useless is a fair chunk of the game.    2 out of 5 stars.   ~ Dylux

      Put a lot of efforts in this wad, the sector art is good. Visually, it should be a 5/5, with large city and heavy detailing, but except slaughter style(well, 1000+ monsters in UV is enough to be slaughter map I think) just not fit me, the subway/train area just a little dark(even though the lighting is good), and the tunnels to the final arena can be confusing...   It's still a nice map I think.

      Too bad the early part of map make me a little easy to get lost, and most of times, have to shoot down monsters from long distance or they'll shoot you down. The map looks nicely, can see put a lot of effort on the visuals and architectures, but make the gameplay just a little weak. I like the BFG trap because I don't afraid get killed if I'm not quickly, just wait and shoot them, and the final cyberdemon can just BFG him to fall down the pit, that's tricky! Afterall, this still a very nice map to play, just may not fit everybody, but I say whatever you like or not, just try play it atleast once.
