About This File

Breathless is a large, Boom compatible slaughter map for Doom 2. The theme is deep blues punctuated with cyan and is heavily inspired by Swim with the Whales, both in aesthetics and difficulty. The wad is inspired by a lot of things visually though, from Metroid Prime's Phazon Mines to Sunder. I wanted to make each individual area fairly unique, so despite it being one large map and all within the same colour palette, the areas hopefully still feel varied.

The map has a slaughter 'design philosophy' and is based around a lot of large set-piece fights, with some smaller encounters here and there. It is designed to be hard on Ultra Violence -consider it close to SWTW map 3 for reference- and is balanced mainly for this mode. HMP and HNTR are both implemented with the former tested a decent amount (not as rigorously as UV) and the latter given some quick runs. Hurt Me Plenty is fun to play and I can Max it fairly consistently without too much trouble; I would suggest playing on this difficulty first, as UV is punishing. Don't say you weren't warned :D

The wad has a lot of secrets, so look around if you want to max it!

Whats with all the low scores?

Anyway, this is a map with plenty of good and interesting visuals, while slightly similar to other cool wads such as swim with the whales, plasmaplant but there is still a unique-ness of its own ,and its gameplay fit for anyone who likes difficult maps.

If you dont like slaughter tho,stay away.

Frustrating, not my taste, though I appreciate the effort put into making the environment.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
