About This File

(Rules) Up to 4 players each control one of 4 "keeps" (castle, pyramid, iron tower & caverns) in a pocket dimension. Each "Lord" has different weapons, magic & minions to use while both defending his turf (each keep holds keys or secrets the other Lords need) and infiltrating the keeps of the other three Lords. Although cooperative mode is used (mainly so that the keys work), you MAY attack other players. Try to let your minions do the work for you, though. It'll save on ammo. (Before you set out from your keep, wake up your monsters with a couple warning shots with your weapon. You'll be suprised at their enthusiasm, and the resulting confusion should keep an invader busy for quite some time... Besides, you'll be long gone by then.) Lords are encouraged to make (& break) alliances & treaties, assassinate or imprison other Lords (not to worry, escape is always possible), etc. It's "All For One" AND "Every Man For Himself" at the same time. (ie: politics) You must escape from D'Sparil's pocket dimension at ALL costs and the Lord who does is instantly proclaimed Arch Wizard Deluxe and Winner of the BattleGame.

NOTE: The game described above is called The BattleGame. (wizwarsb.wad, B for BattleGame) This HERETIC variant may not appeal to all HERETIC players, so I've also included:

The Adventure (wizwarsa.wad), for solo or standard cooperative mode

The Deathmatch (wizwarsd.wad), for standard deathmatch play

Please don't use the BattleGame if you want to play standard HERETIC solo or cooperative modes. The monster setup will be ALL WRONG and no challenge whatsoever.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.

      If it were renamed "Garbage Dump," I would have given it a better rating.

      A large, but not very prolong map, which is interesting to explore. I liked the author's strategy to place strong weapons in well-protected places. To get them the player need to pass a kind of test. The difficulty depends on the player's luck. It is important not to miss the shotgun at the very beginning, otherwise entangled corridors can lead the player to a situation in which he will be easy prey, left without ammo. Visually, the map looks neat, another good example of using standard textures.
