About This File

Ever wonder where all of those soldiers you :have to kill come from? Well, your curiosity :got the best of you, and you decided to find out.

:Bad idea.

:On a visit to the Aubrey Penhew Military Academy, :you were horrified to learn that the entire campus -- faculty, staff, and students -- have been :taken over by those Nefarious Demons From Beyond :Space and Time. You were stripped of your gear, :smacked around, and made to watch twelve straight :hours of "Fantasy Island" re-runs.

:Bummer.

:After enduring a half day of your one-time comrades :kneeling on their knees making "'da plane! 'da plane!" :jokes, you were ready saw off your ears with a butter :knife. Just as you were eyeying your plastic utensils, :the Sgt.-in-charge dashed in and announced that :the parade-in-review was about to start.

:You were unceremoniously thrown into a basement storage :room, your only company in the sudden solitude being :the pounding of your heart and the remembered sound of :Ricardo Montobaln spewing platitudes to the half-crazed :Tatoo.

:Around you, the once-dapper cadets could be heard :readying their soiled uniforms for a twisted :version of the weekly pass-in-review. You were about :to turn inward to try to decide if Tatoo and Mr. Rourke's :relationship was a mere working one or somehow something :more, when you realized that the griping of the cadets around :you had a decidedly dark tone to it. That alone was of little :surprise -- after all, they were possessed and all -- but :you'd been in the marines long enough to hear the truth behind :the growling, screeching, pea-soup-spitting words.

:The academy had a serious morale problem.

:Hope jolted your heart. You could use this knowledge. If only...

:That was when your hand touched the smooth barrel of the shotgun.

:You grinned evily. Now it was time to pay those bastards back. :You decided as you strode towards the door that, if there were :enough left alive, you'd make them watch "Starsky and Hutch"... :in German.

:With thoughts of Phillip Michael Glasier spouting :"Du! Kommen Sie hier!", you pressed the door and watched as it :started sliding upwards...

It works, and it's a little boring. I spiced it up with Vanilla Brutal Doom and it's much morf fun with that. This wad comes with a sweet sound pack too! With killer clips from Beavis and Butthead to make sure your ears bleed within a couple minutes!

Ever wondered what the "venetian blind crash" looks like in vanilla Doom? Here's your example WAD! The large outdoor area with the truckloads of pistol zombies can produce the effect fairly regularly. Ignoring that, it's basically just a lot of dull zombie spam that you mow down with ease. 1/5 -VV

I thought this wad was pretty good for an oldschool Ultimate DooM map. It was easy to play with plenty of Shotgunners and Zombiemen to frag. You are faced with two Barons Of Hell when you get the Yellow Key. Overall, its not too bad. 4/5.-Candle M

      Points for the complex architecture and the hilarious Engrish cutscenes. On the other hand, the levels look quite dull, and running around looking for keys gets boring quick. I didn't find it very fun.

      The original "Living End" is one of the most interesting, high-concept maps in Doom II; this remake, while not overtly original, manages to recapture the original climate and gives an interesting reinterpretation. The ammo and health are carefully balanced, just enough to make the level playable but also make the player feel unsafe and oppressed. Recommended.

      My comments are regarded to these maps and the rest of the 8 maps found here = https://www.doomworld.com/files/file/18251-zdmp2014/
      I've played all maps on UV. The big majority of the maps are good, but some really stood out. Maps made by Dhu Man Yhu, Walter Confalonieri, sincity2100, Jaws in Space, FireSeraphim, Eradrop and Toxie Rocks are really nice, worth downloading just to play these. All the other maps are fine with exception of 3: BloodyAcid (couldn't play due to lag), Dobu Garu Maru (too long and confusing) and Obsidian (a puzzle map - not my cup of tea).

      Not five stars compared to modern maps.  Despite the late submission year, this wad dates back to May 29th, 1994.   I got it on an add-on CD in 1995.   Five Stars for its time to bump up the average as this was one of my favorite classic wads of its time... So much so I messed around adding scripting with more switches to manipulate a spawn number by its digits and spawn whatever there's a number for.   And here are those scripts for seven different switches to execute, though I recommend limiting selectible numbers.   And you could do something more involved like summon groups of monsters and implement the thing hate command to make them fight. #include "zcommon.acs" int haha; SCRIPT 20 OPEN     {     haha = 154;     }          SCRIPT 23 (void)     {     haha+=1;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 22 (void)     {     haha+=10;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 21 (void)     {     haha+=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 26 (void)     {     haha-=1;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 25 (void)     {     haha-=10;     printbold (d:haha);     }      SCRIPT 24 (void)     {     haha-=100;     printbold (d:haha);     } SCRIPT 27 (void)     {     printbold (d:haha);     Thing_Spawn (random(3,6), haha, 0, 7);         }

      A cool ZDoom mapset with well-balanced new monsters, good music, and of course the star of the show: the new arsenal. I'm not the fan of the difficulty at some spots (did I miss something in map04 or is it meant to be an ammo-starved slog?) but when you've got the full arsenal at your disposal, the gameplay becomes really fun.
