About This File

Full description is in the Powers!.txt file in the zip, but I can summarize it: this patch gives your players special powers no one thought would ever be in Doom. Using it you can revive enemies, create drones to fight for you, and jump. You heard me, JUMP! Hence the much more noticable name, Jumper. So don't just sit there, download this patch! The powers are also in seperate patch files for working on them individually. Read the text file first.

This is dated April 1997, just two months ago. Can you imagine how incredible it would be if you could jump in Doom? Actually jump upwards, instead of leaping horizontally? That would be awesome. I imagine a future world where Id software put out a patch... or perhaps they release the source code for Doom, and an intrepid coder could actually build this functionally into the engine! It might not happen for many years though.

^^^ Was the above comment made in 1997 or what? In any case, these are three DEH patched that will allow you to jump, revive monsters, or summon a drone that attacks other monsters (or even all three powers combined). They do work, even in source ports, but the results are sketchy at best e.g. the jump damages you and is hard to control, the reviver is hard to aim, and the drone won't attack anything unless attacked. Pretty impressive considering they are vanilla hacks though. 5/5 -Maes

I've loaded up every different DEH file in here, both under DOS and ZDoom, and for the life of me I can't figure out how to get them to work. Is there a certain weapon I should use? Sounds ambitious for it's time but I guess I won't get to see how well this early jumping works. And yeah, that top review seems about 15 years old.. Jumping has been in Doom sourceports since 1999, to my knowledge.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      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.
