About This File

This level belong to my newly-created "1500-shock" series. What does this means? These levels are about 1500 vertexes (!), There is generally new graphic in them, and sometimes new sounds and music. Hey, if you aren't good at DOOM, then don't play this. Or you will have to cheat...a VERY BAD thing! It is a PWAD created for 2-player (or more) games. I can play it even alone, but you? A description of this level: You escaped the sewers of the Fortress, only discovering you left them exiting the wrong side! (stupid...) Then you must return down to the sewers by activating an exiting switch within a hidden elevator on the "wrong" side (the start side). But that elevator is locked.... The you must return in the Fortress! Doom onto all you, stupid aliens, for I'm "Back For DOOM"!!! (Take This! -Copyright 94-95)

Unknown date

The file is dated October 1995. Judging by the (unhinged) readme there were other levels in the series, but this is M. Brunod's only archive entry. The author is bullish about the level's size and difficulty, but it's really just an average-to-decent 1995 level. It's large, but there isn't much detail. There are lots of monsters, but there's no real challenge. It has one of those bits where you have to pick between several teleports, one of which is instant death.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.

      Absolutely ludicrous, Now I need a new keyboard. Technically as bad as a wad can be, surely deliberate. I like to check out low-rated wads, so it's a pity that some clowns gave this  (and other bad ones) 5 stars, because averaged with correct low scores they end up with a middling rating and can be missed.
