Punisher is the first EXTREME wad. It is sure
to have it's followers and copiers, but they will
be copies all their lives and probably won't live
up to this one anyway. Punisher is so called because
of the comic character who's name I have inherited
from my killer deathmatches. As this level
is SO awesomely tricky, I named it after him too.
For starters, Anyone with a 486 is going to have a
rough time, so watching the demo is probably as far
as you will want to go. However, it IS worth
getting this for the demo alone, read further
for details on that.
Secondly, the map will be familiar to you because
I based it around MAP01.
Thirdly, the map itself isn't large, the number
of things is, so it will save perfectly well
on all systems.
Right, on with the official stuff:
File name : PUNISHER.ZIP
Level Author : Dario Casali (AKA Punisher)
Email Address : D.Casali@rea0808.wins.icl.co.uk
Description : A rehashed MAP01 - but with more monsters
than you can shake a BFG at.
I recorded myself kicking every monster's
arse, so if anyone else out there thinks they
can match it, I'd like to hear from them...
The demo is in itself a miracle. The run I
recorded has to be the toughest ever, some things
to watch out for:
An intuitive way of avoiding revenant missiles -
getting skulls to take the hits
An army of "ghost" revenants to deal with
Several direct rocket hits
Cyber battling on a huge scale!
This level has MORE monsters in it than the
ENTIRE Doom2 population!!
Why get this WAD? : I redid the textures completely and made the
level massive. This remains the only level I
can't always finish every time, but as the
demo shows, it's not impossible.
