About This File

I created this level specifically for Doom 1.6 with deathmatch v2.0 in mind. I retextured it and added monsters and weapons for Doom ][. It's a little harder than MINEWAR.WAD (the Doom version). It's also (in my opinion) fleshed out a little better. On to more important info: DO NOT ERASE THE REJECT MAP FOR THIS LEVEL! If you don't know what I mean, then you probably don't have to worry about it. You can erase the reject block map of a wad file by looking at it with almost any wad editor then saving the file. You can also erase the reject map by rebuilding the wad with some node builders.

MAP 15

There is a second exit switch to the secret level. Try and find it! There are many jumps across canyons. Some of these jumps are difficult. Don't get discouraged. I didn't intend for there to be any secret to these jumps, I just meant for them to be difficult. I obviously put some of the better goodies on the higher levels, so if you are playing this level in deathmatch, DON'T GIVE UP YOUR HIGH GROUND! This level was obviously designed with deathmatch in mind. There are LOTS of ambush and scouting spots available, especially if you make it to higher ground. This level also plays remarkably well in single-player and cooperative modes. There are a couple of "special effects" in this level. I put a couple of "two-way" mirrors in here. Beasties can only see through them if they are on the "two-way" side. You won't be able to see the beasties. If, however, you manage to get behind the "two-way" side, you can shoot at beasties without fear. They won't be able to find you, and will helplessly wander around, waiting to be put out of their misery!

This is dated February 1995. It's Map15. It's basically a single large room, a kind of techbase / mine. The way it winds around itself is a little bit clever, but the gameplay feels aimless and unstructured, and you can cheat by pressing the exit switch through a window, in which case the level takes about twenty seconds to finish. Bog-standard through and through.

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
