About This File

This is the sequel to Debut (debut_ep.zip), which was a full episode replacement for UDoom.

This is 11 new levels from scratch for Doom2 versions 1.7 - 1.9. It contains a new exe, new sprites, new floors, new walls, and a whole hell of alot of other new stuff.

Like Debut, most of my time on this was spent, working on the levels. Lighting, "fancy" archetechture, and other fun little things are present throughout the WAD.

Although everyone who mailed me about Debut said they enjoyed it, a few people said it was too easy, so...this one isn't (if it is then i suck!).

NO CHEATS are needed to complete these levels (if fact, hehe) there are different skill levels so choose one that suits you.

Stop reading, and download it, you won't be sorry, Oh yeah, just 'cause it's not a monster doesn't mean it can't be shot!

has some dubious design decisions here and there but otherwise quite solid.

Don't make the mistake of overlooking this oldie because it's a heck of a lot of fun. Excellent architecture and awesome level design, POST really hits the sweet spot when it comes to classic doom gameplay. Each level offers a different theme, from brick castles to caverns to techbases there is always something new to see. Add to this very good gameplay and you know that it's because of wads like this that doom is as amazing as it is. 4.5/5, pity it wasn't longer!

One of my favorites. Atmospheric levels with clever layouts, and a touch of goofiness with the storyline. Wish the author had chosen music for the other maps besides the final one, but its not such a sin to listen do doom2's soundtrack again. Worth checking out debut.wad as well.

It's a mixed bag that had a pretty decent day. The author was way too obsessed with symmetry and non-SSG combat, however POST has a lot of character, which is created by the new textures, sprites, weird map names and of course the stylish design. I had a good time with it, some fun tense moments due to low HP as well as mysterious moments of confusion. Nice work for 1996.

This episode is amazing. It looks excellent for a 1996 wad and it also has an amazing story. You're basically kicking yourself in the nuts if you don't play this. 5/5

Not bad - a decent challenge. A few weird ideas here and there.

Indeed very well done but not as good to be in the top ten of 1996. Therefore it lacks a little bit of detail. But I agree with the poster from above about nuts and kicking. Coldfusio.

      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.
