About This File

After some time far from the doomworld I return with this episode, it is like favillesco alpha regarding to visuals mixed with mano laikas gameplay with its doom2 bestiary and rocket launcher induced combat, I'm kind of addicted to those alpha textures so I made 9 more maps with them and also allowed myself to make some theme variation like the tunnels of map03 or the tech neighbourhood of map07. Next time I'll make something completely different, I hope it won't take much time.

Another awesome episodic wad from nicolas monti! His maps is alreadly known by the community, so if you enjoyed them, you'll certainly appreciate this too! For this one, expect for a spiritual sequel of Mano Laikas, but with new textures which creates some more moody landscapes than usual. Difficulty-wise is also a bit harder than is previous works, normally finding +1 boss in each level.

If you're not familiarized with his work, expect some 20 min-long levels which are normally non-linear and have quite peculiar room-shapes (which are easy recognizable from his work). The monster placement here is very strategic, maximizing damage while keeping very low monster count (never above 200) and low amount of health. There's also lots of secrets, normally dealing with timed or hidden switches. It feels a lot like classic doom but with some abstraction added in, especially due to his architectural choices. They are normally based on alfa-Doom or 90' wads: Very few to almost no texture alignments.

It's definetly recommended for those looking for interesting gameplay with lots of exploration and very well designed encounters. However, if you're more into standard detailed landscapes, or linear/easy-to-navigate maps, this might not be for you.

the description of this wad pretty much says what to expect, especially true if you have played his other maps. fun for those who like his maps.

If you know Erkattane or Road to Gamzatti, you will know what to expect. Architecture that drags and snakes around like intestines on cramps, monster placement that sends death at you like shooting squad with you put up against the wall, traps that are metaphorical middle fingers, pop music as MIDI with vocals replaced by flutes and lots of running around searching for keys. This is a severe upgrade from Erkattane, but a downgrade from Gamzatti. This is also the last WAD by Nicolas Monti that I will ever play. I just don't dig that style.


The metro tunnels on one of the early maps were pretty rad, though.
