About This File

A map originally made for Ultimate 3 Heures d'Agonie / L'Agonie Finale. Sadly the map had to be reworked to reduce the amount of HOM effects in the main hub area, and I decided to release the original version as a standalone map while the modified version is part of L'Agonie Finale.

Analogie Fatidique is a great hell map with hordes big monsters, big weapons and big health to get you through it. From the start you're thrown into a giant room with dozens of cacos and other big enemies lining the walls. There is plenty of big weapons to whittle them down.

 

Once the dozens of enemies are whittled down, its time to switch find. The map makes it fairly easy to find switches even in big environments littered with corpses. Find a switch or a transporter that will get you to a switch that opens a door to the next grand environment and rocket brawl against mancubus and revenants. Kill everything flip a switch, flip another switch, go back to the original room to get to the next big environment.

 

The environments make the fights more engaging. Round rooms full of revenants where their rockets curve around a doughnut at you. Dozens of enemies on ledges showering you with fiery projectiles and times with arch viles on pedestals orchestrating it all. Its a diverse array of problems, but you always have the rocket launchers and plasma rifles to solve them.

 

Speaking of heights, the tall ledges become deep floors that lead to subterranean areas. This map has a good sense of height shifting. That first main room modifies itself to draw your attention rather than opening a simple floor, an entire series of walls opens up. Of course the wall floods in more enemies, otherwise that might be seen as backtracking.

 

While the challenge is manageable, the only thing that blurred into the line of the unfair are the reskins. Mancubus are now red, which tends to blend in with the red background of hell. Other reskins include a gory arachnatron and revenants. Its good to have the reskins and the new music to keep the level fresh to set it apart from the others. Even calling it unfair is harsh, because everything seemed fair and balanced. The doughnut room fighting revenants in the dark? You're still in the light and there's plenty of rockets and megaspheres.

 

From looking at the .txt file this is a single level that was made for a megawad, so it will be good to check that one out.

 

Great, enjoyable map.

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
