About This File

Gameplay modification for Doom(2).

You're the pilot of the experimental AS-66K Necrosuit, an assault exoskeleton developed for heavy- duty military operations. Asskicking and name-taking are your daily duties, so when the Union Aerospace Corporation wisely decides to open a gateway to Hell one fateful day, you decide to do what you do best: suit up and kick some demon ass!

The mod serves as a 'conversion' of sorts of the arsenal from Raven Software's obscure car-combat shooter "Necrodome," featuring a stylish set of suit-mounted guns loosely inspired by their Necrodome counterparts. Melt the competition with laser cannons, heat-seeking missiles, twin chainguns, and rocket scatter pods. Kablooey!

See the "Gameplay Notes" section below for a breakdown of the mod's more subtle features, like entering/exiting the Necrosuit and inventory basics.

I can name three available stompy mech suit mods off the top of my head. Of those three, not only is NecroDoom one of them but the cream of the crop. It's polished and done, for one. Two, the weapons are satisfying to use (but that's been a staple of just about every Xaser gameplay mod I've tried out). Three, it strikes a balance between being fair while also making you feel like a total badass piloting a stompy mech suit blowing up demons. Four, you can even get out of your stompy mech suit and detonate it if you so desire. But don't worry! If you go back to the start spawn of the level you're on there's a shiny new mech waiting for you so you can resume your murderous shooty-bang rampage.

 

If you don't feel like blowing up demons, give D'Sparil's and Korax's minions a beatdown. Yep! You can use NecroDoom in Heretic and Hexen! It also works in Strife for the three people who play that game!

 

If you like gameplay mods like I do, this is a must-have for your download library. <3

      A 1994 map with some of the limitations you might expect, but overall this is well thought out and executed. It's also a very good challenge, certainly on the UV setting. It's actually for E1M1, as another review points out.   There's a Doom 2 conversion of this on the Demon Gate CD compilation, and maybe others.   A bit better than the bare 4 stars. Around 8.5+ out of 10.

      I was surprised to see that this was a WAD made in 1994, it doesn't have many of the mistakes you would find in other WADs, it's fairly nonlinear but never to the point of being a bad maze, and it's a fun short map all around. While there might be a bit more ammo than you'll really need, the WAD is solid for 1994 and might even be fun for deathmatch, maybe. Overall, a 1994 WAD worth playing!

      I had a lot of fun with this. I absolutely love the Doom 3 textures being put to use, too. Excellent atmosphere, and probably one of the more 'fitting' uses of RSKY1 I've seen in quite some time. This level strongly encourages the player to thoroughly explore for secrets, otherwise your ammo count would always end up getting tight.   I would have given this 5 stars, had it not been for two things:   1) As mentioned before, ammo was particularly short towards the beginning. When I first played this I struggled with trying to conserve my Shotgun shells - having a Chaingun instead of having to resort to the Pistol might've been an improvement, although this didn't really bother me too much in all honesty.   2) Towards the end, I had an issue where picking up the yellow keycard made three nearby Imps atop of the cliff-faces unkillable. Not exactly sure what happened here, just make sure to kill them before collecting the key if you wish for a 100% kill rate.   Other than that, this was excellently done. Good job, Romulus!  :D

      Felt so much like the original Wolfenstein and Spear of Destiny. Used just the right balance of new Gzdoom features and old style Wolfenstein play! Excellent.

      Barely playable. You're given bare armaments, and have to contend with using a shotgun against Hellknights and Revenants until you drop down a hole, get stuck in a maze of tunnels filled with enemies, and then find yourself in an outdoor area, still unarmed, but surrounded by enemies. Honestly, I think Sisyphus has it easier.
