About This File

This is a five level mini-episode for Doom 2, Map01,02,04,05 are made from scratch except Map03 which is one I have made before but I didn't release it.

Miskatonic Trip: You have been called in the middle of the night to do some Demon-cleansing in some UAC base located closer to your neighborhood. You will have to travel right there on your own and taking down any demon opposition along your way.

It's fine. A very old-school styled series of maps. From the description's mention of Blood textures & music, I was expecting some more of that game's atmosphere. But the new textures are used extremely sparingly and it feels very much like a standard Doom wad. The problem I had was that it was just so easy and standard it got boring. The vast majority of action is shooting imps & soldiers in techbases with a super shotgun or chaingun. Higher-tier monsters are underutilized (for example, the Mancubus only appears in the final map). You do get a rocket launcher & plasma gun, but they very rarely feel necessary. It's a good wad for if you want something real easy to play through, guaranteed no stress or frustration.

A mostly-base themed WAD with some theme-mixing and "reelism geometry" here and there. It's mostly straight-forward, with some minimally annoying backtracking. Visuals are also just at the sufficiently not-boring level. Shooting is easy for the most part with most enemies coming at you from the front and with some traps that are not too difficult to outmanuever. It's good for some light-weight play where you don't want to focus too much and just seek something to doze off to.

      WHAT WAS THE MAKER FUCKING THINKING?!?!?!?!, This wad is a product of a infected diseased brain, why make a wad based on something cringe?, it is worse than Action 52 on the Nes or Hong Kong 97 on the Snes or EVEN BIG FUCKING RIGS ON THE PC! the enemy is not even scary it just happens to be a poorly drawn sprite, also he INSTANTLY KILLS YOU! the music is decent though i have to say it was a fuckin nightmare, If you play on skulltag level 2 will crash, since fuckin glitch gremlin wiped his ass on it, anyways FUCK this wad to Hell, get a infinity gauntlet and Snap it out of existence.

      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 :/.
