About This File

Single map for Doom 2.

In this episode of DOULM 2: ELECTRIC DOOMALOO, Our Hero The Goddamn Doomguy accidentally books a cruise to THE UNDERWORLD instead of Fiji and gets caught up in a massive naval battle with the satans or some shit. And then he said "fuck it" and sank all the ships with his special mind powers which he then lost due to some plot device or another.

Now DAMNGUY is trapped and has to escape by hopping from thing to thing while trying not to drown in the toxic totally-not-nukage ocean water. Cue the Emmy nominations for this exceptional narrative performance.

I made this after binging too much Dark Souls, so expect to have to die a lot before finding a path that works for you. With apologies to FDA-ers. Maybe.

With great Xaser, comes great xaserability, and I love a good xaserized Xaserland in Mt Xaserbus style. My rate is 5 Xasers/5 Xasers.

 

...........................

 

(on a serious note: check this out if you like conceptual maps around push-forward pressure via damaging liquids attrition, exposure to high ground snipers, while scavenging for guns and protection and running desperately to find the next safe spot is gone, all in that xaserian gameplay quality oop another xaser pun couldn't resist)

there's no gorillas 0/5 would not recommend

 

In all seriousness though, this is a damn good level that's hella tough. The environment is trying just as hard to kill you as the monsters are. Between quickly wading through toxic goop and damaging blood, you have a variety of monsters sniping at you from all positions, making you either rush from location to location or (like I did) take out a few of the snipers with careful shots (and savescumming like the nub I am) before moving to the next location. Even when you go to the next platform you'll have to content with some up close and personal fights that threaten to push you back into the goop below.

 

I really liked this. <3

The map is built around hostile environment (and it's really hostile). And I don't mean the omnipresent nukage, but how the level is built to allow monsters to sneakily hammer you. There's a feeling of constant threat but it's not dependant on the randomizer at all. I also like the barren visuals. They're ugly-hot.

      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.
