About This File

Not just another DeathMatch WAD. This one is a bit larger than the other PoBla-Levels, because it was designed with 4 player DM in mind. POBLA5 was originally made for a DeathMatch Tournament in germany - here it is for your enjoyment. The pobla5 ZIP also contains a GIF showing a raw sketch on paper and the final map of this level.

Well designed and great fun, just like all of the PoBla-series. :)

THIS IS NO CRAP! TiC stands for quality. Remember that.

A word to the guys that changed POBLA3: The positions of the weapons and the number of items is intended - the height of the weapon-platforms was tested over and over again - the current setting is the RIGHT one. :)

Btw, nice WAD-filesize eh? ;)

Excellent map despite the inescapable sector

There's a bug where the players can get stuck in the BFG/Berserk room. The doors won't open. It's a shame because the map itself is fantastic otherwise.

      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.
