The Revenant Problem

   (20 reviews)

About This File

There is a runaway Revenant barreling down the teleporter track. Ahead, at the main teleporter's destination, there are five Imps trapped by explosive barrels and unable to move. The Revenant is headed straight for them. You are standing inside the nearby STARTAN2 viewing chamber next to a switch. If you press this switch, the Revenant will change to a different teleporter. However, you notice that there is one Imp trapped within explosive barrels at this side teleporter's destination. You have two options:

1. Do nothing, and the Revenant fires a rocket which explodes the barrels, killing the five Imps at the main teleporter.

2. Push the switch, diverting the Revenant onto the side teleporter where it will kill one Imp.

Which is the most ethical choice?

Actually a lot of fun. And very morally challenging. I wish the room was a *wee* bit bigger since some really big monsters spawn in there, but aside from that good work!

'Cuz everytime we touch,
I get this feeling,
& Everytime we kiss,
I swear I could fly,
Can't you feel my heart beat fast,
I want this to last,
Need you by my side.


'Cause every time we touch,
I feel this static,
And every time we kiss,
I reach for the sky,
Can't you hear my heart beat so,
I can't let you go,
Want you in my life.

0/10, I have suffered severe depression and PTSD from this game, I cannot hear the word "Trolley" anymore without thinking about death.


For your own sake, don't download this WAD.

This Wad is purely a comedic story campaign. Gameplay-Wise there's not much to say.


BUT! I would highly recommend playing despite all this. It's a good way to spend 30 Minutes!



The ending was very Anticlimactic. You press a button. And you get killed. Exact same as in Revenent bus.

Really fun WAD! I am actually surprised that MarphitmusBlackminus was part of the Doom community!


As for the WAD itself, it presents 31 challenges exactly the same, that sounds repetitive, you may say, but it isn't, the way the author handles the problems is fantastic.


It's also a great WAD for thinking, you might just randomly hit the switch, or, you can think about it, for example: "Should i do nothing and let 1 chaingunner die? Or should i act and be responsible for the death of 5 chaingunners?" Of course! Less annoying idiots! I WILL ACT!


I recommend it to anyone with a sense of humor

I tought it would become boring and repetitive after the first few 10 levels,but it suvberted my expectations, it remains clever and entertaining all the way down, i also enjoyed the trolley puns.

Had a go at this once. It is funny for sure but, I think it starts to get a tad boring after about 5 minutes. Cool concept though :)

As a person that doesn't like comedy with my games, this was laugh out loud funny. The premise is simple, make a choice between who dies. A revenant moving on a track will kill whatever choice you make thanks to its shoulder rockets and barrels surrounding the victims. As an example, a zombie soldier or a chain gunner, a single chain gunner or a group of chain gunners, an arch vile or a group of big enemies.


Pull the switch and the group on the right dies, don't pull the switch and the group on the left dies. Its a simple premise that did what it could to stay fresh for 30 levels to think outside the confines of a simple switch pull, but it does overstay its welcome. The major issue is how slow the revenant is on its path. It gives you a lot of downtime.


Once the revenant is dead, the barrier will open allowing you to exit to the next test chamber. If you deviate, there will probably be problems.


The megawad is punctuated by some kooky music choices that add to the silliness. Its a great play through for anyone with 20 - 25 minutes to kill.

One of the funniest wads I've played. Knows when to play itself straight. Knows when to throw some hilarious curveballs at you. The moment you think you know what direction it's going in, it hits you with things you never saw coming.

This wad is criminally underrated and underplayed.


Revenant100, you have my kudos. This wad really made me think.

An amusing WAD, though the joke got a little old after the first 10 or so levels. Aside from that though, it's easy to play through, and has quite a few fun surprises up its sleeve. 


All in all, it's alright.

"Time to choose!"


32 amusingly self-referential moral dilemmas, ranging from the genuinely difficult (do you let a BFG be destroyed, or a Megasphere?) to the hilariously obvious (do you kill a dozen monsters, or one Arch-Vile)?  To begin with you might wonder whether an entire megawad of such a simple premise can be enjoyable, but rest assured sticking with it reveals there is slightly more potential to this setup than the first few maps suggest.


With genuinely ingenious use of the Boom feature set, this wad makes for an enjoyable 20 minutes of surreal Doom-related humor.  It's something you can only really play once, but it's definitely going to stick in the memory.

      Good map, ammo management is required somewhat, no big deal since we give you a plasma rifle, and this tiny "ammo starvation" is fairly rebalanced later on the level anyway. Some texture misalignment indeed… The theme is respected, and I like this kind of "easy but don't sleep" gameplay.

      I was expecting much worst from what I've read just bellow, but in fact the angry guy in the comment was probably just too lazy to use an obvious berserk that is easy to find if you aren't blind… I'm not a great fan of ammo starvation either, but if only you use your brain, you'll understand that there is a lot of demon piñata that you easily punch from a safe distance instead of casually shooting them in sight and waste your ammo, and it's quite fun to gib them actually ! There are some confusing moments though, but nothing crazy either… Now, there are some sweet little design and decoration that I liked. The usual short map that isn't transcendant, but that you'll finish with satisfaction.

      feels like an old school doom wad. I very much liked.

      A set that work pretty well :) Just found out that this is by the same creator of JNNHangar and stuff, and as its previous map this mapset is good while staying on basic stuff, also the layout feels a little bit less linear for the good. I still find that it is rather not enough decorated and blend sometimes, but it is ok. E1M8 was the little "challenge", fair last level ! +1 for the awersome secret level !

      This map is twenty years before its time.
