About This File

Squadron 417 has earned a reputation throughout the solar system as one of the finest two, three, and four man fighting units ever to come out of the Deimos Academy on Mars. As such, your unit is continuously asked to go above and beyond the call of duty. Your mission is very simple: - To go from site to site clearing any and all alien infestations you might find. - These sites could be anything, so you must be prepared for any and all eventualities.....

Good Luck, you will need it!

Base

New levels from scratch! (Is there any other way?)

Bugs

None, our work is purrfect!

some very questionable design decisions prevent this from being actually fun. the combat is INSANE though. might give it a second play.

like all maps from this era, in very quirky, but it's also damn fun. Cool little custom assets here and there too. From the same author of Area51, and it shows.

Hardcore oldschool maps with a manly soundtrack. On Map17 there is a "split" moment where you need two players to progress, the rest is playable in SP too. Awesome.

I have been enjoying this pure coop WAD since its heyday, back in 1996 and I still find it to be one of the most satisfying cooperative experiences I have had, to date. Contrary to a previous review, the levels are light-years ahead of their time in design, intricacies, detail, and pure beauty. It is a non-stop action/puzzle WAD that will leave you and your friends craving for more. Best if played on Difficulty 3: Hurt me Plenty. -- HeroShot

Meh... 2 Stars. Would be nice if you made a Weapon Replacement WAD for this WAD. 2/5

One of my favorite old school megawads. Good fun blasting the crap out of enemies with your RL and BFG. Altier 6 (MAP10) is my favorite map, a city like map under a dark sky that contains a looping road. New Co-op was extremely hard but somewhat beatable. Crushing the Cyberdemon in MAP01 was funny. I got a lot of my early map design inspiration from some of the maps in Squadron 417 back in the 1990's. - pcorf

This is not so good, some good action at times, but lousy design and you can get stuck :( - PerOxyd

NB: Almost all the maps are OK for single-player too. See the demopack at www.doomworld.com/sda for details.

      Some levels are decent, others are poor, others are too long and excessively filled innecesarily with too many loads of monster, there are a couple of "broken levels" I have to use cheats to complete, like level 25 (?) there was no blue key at all, plus you are locked with a door that doesn't let you go back to check where the hell is the blue key

      The detail is amazing, and sometimes is overdone in some areas. i'm even amazed that this is compatible with the Vanilla DooM. Somewhat an underrated wad if it weren't for the weird new sounds and combat. The combat is pretty hard to play with, and i ended up dying multiple times due to the lack of ammo supplied in the maps. Aside from that, 3 stars for the detail, and 1 more star for Vanilla compatibility. This wad is recommended to anyone who is willing to punch Arachnotrons with their fists in an attempt to kill them.

      This mapset struck me as fairly innocuous at first but the gameplay is where this one really shines. Maps are compact and punchy with a lot of combat variety and entertainment to be had. There is a solid difficulty ramp and i found myself having more and more fun with each passing map. Top notch - recommended to anyone!

      Amazing map! I like the design and visual.

      a great wad, modernizes the look of some of the maps from the OG, while being just as fresh all the same. maps like MAP22 and MAP25 are more unique than the rest, but overall, this was certainly an enjoyable and balanced mapset and I barely could find any flaws with it.
