The Revenant Problem

   (21 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?

I like the part where I pay for the numerous murders I committed by getting beaten up by either a Mancubus or an Arachnotron, it changed my outlook on Monster Priority. Thank you "Problematic" Revenant #7, I have yet to find a way to repay him.

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!

 

Spoiler

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.

      Nothing better than baiting the Bazooka Man into blowing himself up! Obituary doesn't pull any punches; you'll be facing tons of hitscanners and plenty of nasty traps, but you'll get to appreciate the fine work the Möller brothers did with this WAD. The maps are intricately designed with a judicious use of textures, some of them custom-made. The new array of weapons is great, especially the flamethrower, which can shred down a cyberdemon in seconds! The low point might be the plain secret map and icon of sin fight, but overall, Obituary strikes home more often than not.

      In recent years, general opinon of MM seemed to move towars negative, moreso than any other classic 90's megawad. It's nice to see it recieve some positive attention and even though I'm not exactly a reviewer, I figured I'd join in. Aside from couple rough maps, it remains a great experience today. Generally good and varied vanilla visuals with beautiful highlights like Maps 05, 13, 14 and 21, certainly helped by some great, really cool custom textures, which fit in with the classic ones incredibly well, much better than any other 90's custom stuff (aside from Eternal Doom, but that's a completely different aesthetic). The maps are quite varied without the whole thing becoming incosistent/all over the place and the variety really helps blaze through the whole thing. In comparison, while I prefer MM2 in terms of individual levels, it has a ton of long or similar maps back to back, which can get tiring and take much longer to geth through. Another aspect of MM I really like is some really, unique and fun design choices, or even whole map designs that you don't see much these days for some reason. The Innocent Crew's maps especially are very creative in fun and refreshing ways. Incredibly underrated mappers. Literally everyone knows this already, but Mark Klem's music is amazing.

      This could've been one of the first 32 level megawads that I played after completing the base games. I've played many more since then, and I can honestly say, for a megawad dating back to 1996, it still holds up brilliantly against a lot of modern wads.    Also @DoomGuy999, about that criticism about maps being coop exclusive... "Most levels were made for co-op play, all levels are playable alone as well."   Not exactly sure what you were expecting after having an explicit statement right there.

      This is a fine map with a lot of work put in it. I really liked the attention to details and the overall atmosphere of the map. The intended  path is a bit hard to decipher at times, but it ends on a high note.

      I don't hate it. It's simple and easy, but also clearly designed instead of just slapped together, even if the author is a beginner mapper from the mid-90s.
