Big boring maze without map. Maybe it was worth a try on 1997 but not today. If you still want to go for it, there's a repackaged version to avoid the tedious installation: https://www.doomworl d.com/idgames/levels /doom/p-r/quest12

A terrible early TC, even if you do get it working. The custom installer works only with Doom v1.666, while using the WAD files directly with modern source ports will bork them, as they are heavily malformed. I will soon release a cleaned and up-to-date, v1.9 compatible version. Consider it an early jokewad, if anything. 1/5 -Maes

If you can't get it working, then you can't see whether it's good or bad. You'll need to convert the binary dehacked patch into a plain-text one if you wish to play it using a port.

Every map is an exercise in how to make something even more annoying than the last. Fortunately, though, the second map pretty much takes the cake in that regard, so it doesn't take long to get an idea how bad this is: it's a gargantuan maze with literally no distinguishing features to aid navigation, with the entire thing hidden from the automap. Oh, right, there's also unmarked secrets, mandatory pitch-black segments, fake walls, and invisible blocking walls. Whoever made this wad is a total dick.

      Umm... this isnt Doom 64? Or even remotely related to it?   In addition, its a shitty wad. You are expected to fight 2 arch-viles with a pistol, and then a cyberdemon witha  chaingun in an enclosed space.

      Should have been called "Doom 64 for Boom".   I really wanted to like this more. I mean, I do like it but I feel like the gripes I have regarding it just bring my overall rating for it down too much.   It was interesting to see how, at first, the authors recreated the Doom 64 levels in Doom 2 with just vanilla assets. You can still see some of that in the Boom levels like how revenants and arch-viles are used in place of where traps where. That was an interesting touch and I liked that.   As I got further into it though and more of the Boom tricks were used my thoughts wandered from "hey this is a nice vanilla interpretation" to "man I could be playing Doom 64 EX or Doom 64 Retribution". I really wish they would have stuck with vanilla constraints for this reinterpretation. I would have liked to see how they would have handed nightmare monster placement (would a nightmare imp be worth two imps or three, for example). I feel like using Boom and DeHacked cheapened the experience, like they were trying to replicate Doom 64 as close as possible rather than doing a vanilla Doom (2) interpretation.   Additionally, map 30 can fuck right the hell off with that puzzle bullshit.   Anyway, if you don't mind any of the complaints I made, you'll likely have fun with this. I got some fun out of this as well but to me it feels like it's trying to be exactly like Doom 64 rather than simply a vanilla Doom 2 interpretation of Doom 64. In trying to be exactly like Doom 64, it just makes me want to play that more than this.

      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.
