About This File

Welcome to the Pleasure Dome! This is where all of the posessed soldiers and sargents come to watch those marines die who will not succumb to posession by the demons infesting the world. This level is like the Roman Coloseums of old, except that you are the poor slob about to be fed to the beasts. They do give you a shotgun to try to duke it out with, but they don't expect you to last long. They just hope that your death will be entertaining.

Whenever I downvote 1994 wads, I feel like I'm picking on a retarded kid.. Anyway, this map is decent for it's time. Shrink the whole thing down by 50%, add some more texture variation and enemies, and it would still get a solid grade today. To me, this deserves a decent score for it's age.

The map certainly looks good with a lot of attention to detail for 1994. However you there is no point in fighting the monsters meaning you can just run away from the monsters. Then grab all 3 keys that are very easy to find just run to the locked doors and exit. Maybe this would be better in deathmatch, however even if that is so it is probably not going to be one of your opponent's firm favourites. An ok-ish map from 1994 but certainly is not great 2/5.

Yah, a 1994 wad, however at least this one is not complete crap. Some good battles and an allright map layout help make this wad better than quite a few 1994 wads out there. Having said that its still certainly not a good level so 2/5 from me.

A very early 1994 wad, one of the first hundred entries in the database, and the only wad ever to be named after the works of Frankie Goes to Hollywood. It's surprisingly large and well-made for something this old, although it's basically a very large oval arena (plus stand, concessions area) with just under a hundred assorted monsters. It has secrets and supports difficulty levels. Two stars for age, ambition, and for not having ridiculous and awful errors.

      Done with these settings:   - Crispy Doom 5.3.
      - Ultra-Violence
      - Continuous combined with pistol start mindset.
      - No saves, mostly.
      Very decent tribute to the original game. Each map is essentially a remix of the ID's levels, built around the same theme and music tracks per episode, albeit with the author's personal changes to the design. Aesthetically, the only notorious difference, and by no means less important, is the texturing he decided to use in some sections. In general the maps look extra polished, there were no signs of misaligned textures, but I wasn't that attentive to be honest. He did left the most distinctive visual features of each map untouched, for example where it's supposed to be a dark secret dungeon, it is a dark secret dungeon, just not copy-pasted.    As said before, Wonderful Doom is just a revamped Ultimate Doom. If you know the game by heart, there may be little room for surprises, so you can take it as a memory test. Of course, the author added his own touch to the gameplay. I would underline the size of the rooms in comparison to the iwad, tending to be more compact though in no way less attractive. In consequence, they lead to a bit more claustrophobic combat, specially throughout the latter episodes, sometimes you'll find yourself in a hairy situation like a slow drop in a cluster of imps and barons coming from the shadows, or starting surrounded of pinkies and barrels to detonate using your ol' peashooter. Another thing is the resource balance, sometimes giving more leeway where there wasn't originally, other times less obvious for the pistol starter. This is part of several plot twists Wraith added here and there to the main concepts to keep it somehow fresh and interesting, but I'm not going to spoil any in particular.    Secret-wise, I guess it's not needless to say almost all of them can be found normally, there is one in E2M9 that can't be triggered due to the teleport line. Otherwise, there are no broken sectors or staircases of secrets (sorry to burst your bubble ;P). There are no disliked maps, and so I'll avoid to pick favourites this time. I also didn't care if most maps were extremely similar to the iwad ones, but that could not be the case for you.   Overall, I won't lie and say this turned out to be thoroughly enjoyable. It's what I expected from an author with such love for plain vanilla Ultimate Doom. Nostalgia fans should give it a go. Well, as long as you wish to "play Original Doom one more time", otherwise if you expect a thing like "Doom the Way ID Did", it might not be wise to download this. My rate is 8/10.

      This is clearly the most groundbreaking, exciting release of the decade. Forget your megawads, this is where its at. Wonderful, delightful, sublime, glorious... all words that dont even come close to expressing just how great this wad is.

      Another abomination in doom mapping. It's crap even in crap category.

      Ugly, rectangular, not enough ammo. In one word: CRAP

      Sound replacement is terrible. Sounds are very annoying. Level also is ugly. Only thing I like is sprites replacement. Kicking nazi asses is same as good like demons ones ;)
