About This File

The story of this Pwad is as long as the Pwad is big.

One day some years ago some friends and I, we discovered that there is a way to create own Pwads. We started to build some at once, and so I started to work on this file; only to try out some ideas, to find out how DEU works and to create something for Deathmatch. So I found out that most of these ideas didn't work, but I found out how DEU works. More ideas came and the Pwad got bigger and bigger and useless for Deathmatch. So I stoped working on it. But I didn't stop building Pwads (stairs.wad, lift.wad, cyrc.wad, ralle.wad) and these Pwads are very good ;-). Now, years later I rediscovered the thos.wad on my HD and made thos02.wad out of it (includes: things, some corrections, an end-level-switch, a demo which shows you how to survive and how to find the big BFG-Secret and some sreenshots). There are still some Bugs (which I see but you might not) and the Pwad is still senseless because DM is only fun with more than 2 players (I never played with more than 2) and because Singleplayer might be to hard. But you should try it out also this one, to be able to compare it to my other Pwads.

(Try out: CROSS.wad, STAIRS.wad, LIFT.wad, CYRC.wad, RALLE.wad, ASYM.wad and all the other Pwads I've created...)

This is dated June 1996, with some screenshots from August 1995. It's as dull as the readme file. It's one of those early levels where each room has a different texture, because the author wanted to use all the textures; thankfully there isn't a sound replacement. The map consists of a central room surrounded by what amounts to a large single-file maze. If you can play for more than five minutes before dying of boredom you deserve a big hug.

      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.
