About This File

This is a small deathmatch wad of a two story gaming store and its immediate surroundings. With 4 players, the frags come fast and furious! There are also several secrets to give those intelligent players and enterprising explorers an edge! This is based on a REAL place: Imperial Hobbies in London, Ontario, and its immediate surroundings. Dave Carnie, the owner, has been kind enough to give me free access to his networked gaming systems for testing out my wad creations. In return, I created this wad so that he and his customers can play with shotguns in the store without having to clean up afterwards! :-) This isn't a quick knock-off though - it is well crafted, in my opinion, with close attention to playability, texture alignment, and in making the "illusion" of two stories as believable as I can make it. Besides, where else are you going to find a deathmatch start sitting on a toilet? But you may need to kick the vending machine. :-) If you are ever in the area, check out his store! (And see how accurate I was!) Let him know this is how you found out about his place and he'll give you a tour (and a free membership).

Imperial Hobbies, 239 Clarence Street, London, Ontario Canada N6B 2J9 (519)434-8822

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
