About This File

Redrum is a rather large file, over 300k. For some reason beyond my comprehension DOOM will not let you save your game while playing Redrum.wad, so you better be pretty good at doom! Also may I suggest that you run doom with your "messages on". This is the only way you will know if and what key you will need to open a locked door for I have not color coded them (I just didn't like the look of em' in my level) I have included Deathmatch starts in this level but I did not design the level for it. The level is so expansive you might never find each other. I think there is a nice mix of monsters,amo,and first aid in the level. If you think it is too hard or too easy you may add or delet amo and health to suit your needs (I don't mind). I have also hidden my secret doors very well, and you may have to use more of a "Wolfenstein" approach to find them. Have fun!

Quite a decent and apparently well regarded early Doom map. Almost 300 enemies on UV, but not too difficult by today's standards. Visually okay, though a bit spartan with plenty of plain white walls etc. There's also a Doom 2 conversion of this (Redrum2.wad) which can be found on some of those 94/95 CD compilations, but it's somewhat disappointing - no revenants, mancubuses or archviles, even on UV difficulty.

pretty cool for 1994, although some areas look like shit and it's overall too symmetrical. still on the whole it's a **** map, considering its age. -sargebaldy fyi the author of this wad mapped for RTCW and is mapping for "Doom III"

4/5 It's a nice big semi-nonlinear map with plenty of decent traps. The action never gets too intense. The biggest strike I can level against it is the presence of mandatory secrets, which given that they're rarely if ever hinted at, drag the speed of the map down. Still, most of them are stuffed in between gaps a la Wolf3d. All in all, I enjoyed it. - KMX E XII

      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.
