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.

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.

      Adorable, if a bit insubstantial: I'd give this 3 stars due to how little there is, but I feel like I'd be ruining someone's day if I did. Also the default hand acts as a somewhat rapid weak chainsaw in the stock maps, heh.

      Adorable, but sadly only one room. Wish there were more so I could spend more than 5 minutes in this world. Love super creative stuff like this!

      These maps suck, please put more effort.

      A short set of maps by the author of the excellent Alkylation. These are not quite as ambitious, but still imaginative and with plenty of quality action. Be prepared in particular for some close-quarters encounters with Revenants, Mancubuses and Barons in tight corridors or confined spaces. There's also a custom designed boss at the end which takes a bit of seeing off....   A slight oddity of this wad is the inclusion of mini-levels with just a handful of monsters. The last of these, the 'Postludium', takes place after the boss encounters, and requires you to defeat a Cyberdemon in order to get back to your spaceship. There don't appear to be any ammo or weapons around, so pistol starts are out of the question and you'll be dependent on carryovers from the previous level - make sure to have a good scavenge around before leaving it.   Played on UV, continuous, GZDoom.

      Quick and fun to play map. Well chosen music and nice gothic setting. Medium/high difficulty.
