About This File

Ultra-violence is for wimps! NIGHTMARE is where REAL DOOMIES play! REAL DOOMIES don't need guns. We use OUR FISTS! Experience the first and only wad designed for play on NIGHTMARE! A familiar board is the scene for this fast action adventure. Put your gun away and grab the cherries because it's berserk time! NOW GO MUNCH SOME GHOSTS! Item placement is exactly the same as in the arcade game, but it's a lot harder to find your way around when you're IN the game. All difficulty levels are supported, and should be tried in order (yes, tough guys too :) ). Also, try different routes through each level, as I have put unique traps in each one. "I'm too young to die", and "Hey, not too rough" are good for fans of the original game (with respawn) as the monsters are all in the central area (just like the original). "Hurt me plenty", "Ultra-violence", and "Nightmare" have great action and tricks. "I'm too young to die" and "Hey, not too rough" have 4 ghosts, "Hurt me plenty" has 8, and "Ultra-violence" and "Nightmare" have 12 (I thought 16 was excessive). Try this in deathmatch (great action!) and see graphics.txt for info on putting in some cool graphics. Send a lmp of your best "Nightmare" game. Can you survive all 15 minutes of recording time?

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".

      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.
