A pretty good episode 2 replacement with a few minor niggles here and there, that thankfully doesn't stray too far away from the essential nuts & bolts gameplay that we know and love doom 1 for.

I will definitely keep my eye on this authors future work.

Nice vanilla maps with fantastic music. You captured very well the atmosphere of the original Doom. Bravo!

Doom 1 with challenging but fluent action is always something that's difficult to achieve. There are some moments here that are too aggressive in mauling you with pain and death, but in overall the WAD is excellent with visuals barely, but still, surpassing the vanilla E2. Despite some use of high HP enemies there's always either enough ammo to kill them, or enough of space to skip or postpone the fight.


The last map, though, is something really, really stupid, as felgro has already stated. It seems it was supposed to be extra-hard, but actually it just makes your left hand twitch into a gesture that can press ALT+F4, and then you press ALT+F4.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.

      Would not play with PRBoom, with errors about missing files : FluidR3_GM.sf2 and STARTAN2.  These were not provided in the zip file.

      The map author left the words "how not" out of his description, I'll let you figure out where.

      More tripe.  Huge badly designed and featureless rooms that give you leg ache just watching going through them. The opposition from monsters is pitiful.

      A busted crock of shit. The map is random scribble, it's insane.  Why do they upload this tripe?  The third screenshot above gives an idea what to expect.
