About This File

This is a one level WAD for DOOM II that is designed to work great as either a Deathmatch, Co- Op, or single player game. This level is packed with new graphics, and is designed to REALLY look like a city. It features a fast food place, a bar, a church (of course), a supermarket, a seven - eleven corner store, and a library. There are also phone booths, streets, sidewalks and other miscellaneous stuff. For more info about this WAD, check out *Additional Notes* at the end of this document.

this is a classic but short level. it's a simple city, actually more like a small town in all honesty, and it's got enough custom assets to make it convincing as opposed to other really blocky-looking city maps. the gameplay isn't really anything past the 90's grade, with zombiemen all over the streets being the most important threat.

 

also of note is the rather classic music track Shamus Young had made for this map. he's had several other contributions, some of which are heard on DOOM32.wad, but this is his most famous music track. I'll admit his music is a guilty pleasure.

Very well done - especially if one takes into account that excellent tools like DoomBuilder weren't around and the common Doomer navigated through id's brainchild with a 486.

 

This also reminds me of the times when recreating more real environments was a lively urge of many hobbyists with the infamous trinity.wad(1994) being quite The exotic eye-candy of yesteryear(textures were based on original photos of the college building).

 

If the textures had a bit more polish, to better blend in with the original artwork, it would be even more impressive.

Solid map from 1995, visually neat and atmosphere helps the setting thrive here. Plenty of exploration and places to go around, the custom textures make some rooms stand out from others. Worth checking this WAD out even after all these years, it still holds up well.

I gotta say, for twenty years old wad it’s pretty neat. For today standards it has a little low monster count and actually it’s pretty brief, but still—it’s worth checking.

Wow, that was a fun level...Texture alignment was about perfect and the locations were a cool addition along with the custom graphics to make it fit in. For it's age, it's recommended for a playthrough. 5/5 -Mr. Chris

For a level that is not only 10 years old, but fun and challenging as well as not too overdetailed/crowded but enough detailed to make it a realistic city (well, for Doom anyway), and has fitting music and texture themes that work for this kind of level. For me this is very deserving of a 5. -ace

Another legendary map in my eyes. I remember booting this map up for the first time back in 96, and thinking that it was the most detailed city I had ever seen in a game. Some truly unique architecture especially for such an early map. This map has surprisingly faired well over the years. -Scuba

The guy that gave this level 4 stars instead of 5 has a habit of inhaling freon and paint fumes. The fact that this is almost 10 years old combined with the quality makes it a 5 star map. This map goes to show that the doom community doesnt need all these crazy new features that are being developed among various engines, but a bit of old school ingenuity. Take a look at the soft drink fridges in the Gas station; I think it is pretty clever how he pulled that off.

This is a pretty good map for its time. While the architecture is a little simple overall, it is understandable considering the openness of the map and the visplane limits. The gameplay is a bit bland, unfortunately, and there isn't much in the way of difficulty, but I still really enjoyed the experience thanks to the realistic setting. The city-feel is pulled off very well, and there are some nice details here and there, so this map is well worth a play-through. 4/5 -Reckoner

A really sweet map. Not only is the city represented quite accurately and believably, the architecture is clean, free of errors and works great. Steady gameplay that builds up. Considering WHEN it was built (the era of startan3 rooms with 20 cyberdemons) it's a masterpiece of it's time and still holds up till today as a very fine wad. 5 stars without any doubts.

Looks good city for 1995. It is a city of Duke Nukem, but it worked. However, it is too easy, should have better single player gameplay. (3+1)/5 (+1 for the date)

This surprised me greatly. I was expecting another crappy 90's level map but instead I got a fairly decent city map. I liked the new textures and it was short but sweet.

Hmm... new textures are nice, especially the fridges give a fine 3D effect, but the gameplay is meh. But hé, this was made in 1995, so for that time it was done quite well: 4/5.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
