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.

      A overall pretty good first effort map with some small cool details, new textures, a pretty good theme and room construction, as well for clever secrets and layout design. Pretty cool stuff.

      Oh wow, I really loved this! I appreciated every map and it has been a step up from Fava Beans, my last WAD. I am a largely unskilled and inexperienced doomer so this may have aided my enjoyment. I loved the episode structure: first maps were warm-up through to big maps with larger enemy counts, through to maps with interesting mechanics but low enemy counts. Just had a ball with this. Tough in places but not unreasonable.   Highlights for me were (if I have to limit to two maps per episode): E1M5 - Long level with a cyberdemon in the nukage at the end  E1M6 - Circle straffing a cyberdemon on a stairs E2M3 - Loved the fast tempo of the map E2M4 - Tyson Imp punch level, wow I had to skill up E3M2 - Tough but fun with lots of routing to consider E3M5 - Loved the map but particularly the cyberdemon arena at the end   Sorry, but I also loved the gimmick maps (E1M8, E2M8 and E3M8) - you have to try these - short and really interesting. Also enjoyed the secret maps (E1M9, E2M9 and E3M9), short, punchy and fun!   Basically, loved the mapset and the variation across all of the maps, really fun. If it is useful I have uploaded my playthrough to my YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCSh0vj-6E2chQqx744Ajl2w

      Really enjoyed this WAD. Simple and straight forward with small maps and low enemy counts, but a great place to start for a new doomer. I had so much fun playing and particularly enjoyed E1M5, E1M6 and E1M7, these were really fun, nice tempo and I continue dropping back to play these again and again. It was really enjoyable to push the pace on these and see how fast I could finish.   Basically, enjoyed the calm encounters and nice simple aesthetics.

      Three minutes into the map I already like it. The starting room looks nice and the room after that can be difficult if you do not navigate it well enough. I do not understand why you would give a rocket launcher when the room in front of you which is filled with lost souls who will attack when you press the trigger. I do like how you give the chaingun and plasma gun before the big room with Barons and cacodemons. However, the room does have some strange textures for the cacodemons' pockets. I do like how one of the pockets is a lift to a switch that is required to press to make progression. I do like the room with the resources needed for the last fight but I do think the room was a bit too tiny and the fight would have been harder if you did not place the BFG in the open. 7/10

      This wad uses some nice texture usage and enemy choice and placement. Some of the traps can be evil when unexpected. You have only used stock DOOM II textures but still made some nice-looking rooms. You only made three levels in this wad but still managed to make fun and nice-looking wads. Good Job, 5/5.
