About This File

The Villa of Death is a Deathmatch level. It is a square single-story house, nicely stocked with shotguns and chainguns, with some ammo, health, armour, and other stuff. In the centre of the level is a courtyard, and around the rest of the house is a large garden. There are about 13 deathmatch starts, and all players appear near, if not on, a weapon, none larger than the rocket launcher. The exception is the person who spawns in the 13th spot, who is near a Soul Sphere, Combat Armour, Plasma Gun, and BFG. Unfortunately for him, he can only get one of them, the poor bugger...

In the centre of the level is a pool. In the middle of that is a large waterfall. As people move around in the house, parts of the waterfall lower. When they do, run in, and you can grab a gun or bonus (available are the Plasma Gun, BFG, Soul Sphere, or Combat Armour, you can only get one depending on which section opened for you), and once you grab it you will be teleported somewhere near an opponent. There are four possible landing points, one in each quarter of the villa.

The main weapons in Villa of Death are shotguns, super-shotguns, and chainguns. Rocket launchers are there, but few and far between, plus there are only 9 available rockets (including backpacks and launchers), so don't go wild with them.

Another feature is the Wardrobe of Death. You climb in, and you will find a backpack and a small window. Open this window to snipe at anyone in the courtyard, and slam it shut when they try to shoot back. Although this sounds like a good setup, a black arrow will appear when you enter the Wardrobe, pointing at you. This will give anyone running past an easy frag; all they need to do is pop the door and blast you in the back. Charming. And if they get you just right, you may even fly through the window! Be careful when sniping with rockets, as the hole closes often, and firing while it's closed will end with you blowing your own fragging head off.

Around the villa are eight teleporters that take you between the central courtyard and the outside. This gives plenty of opportunity for telefragging (the best way to frag!). There are 12 doors into the villa, 8 from the courtyard and 4 from outside, and there are also lots of windows to snipe through. Watch out that you don't get whacked from behind while sniping, though. The level is devoid of furniture, to allow you to run around better, and secrets, apart from the waterfall, are non-existant. This should make the level mildly playable. Have fun, and mail me with praise, comments, or (gulp) constructive critism.

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
