About This File

<--- I hate this trying to fill this line, but many people like a bit of story, so I better think of one >:-<

Okay, hows this:

After cleaning up phobos, deimos, hell, and earth, you got a little slack, relaxed yourself, etc. Aren't heroes (or heroines, to be politically correct) supposed to get fat juicy rewards? You still have your souvenir bunny impaled on a stake, but it's hardly a king's (or queen's) ransom. If you had asked for money BEFORE saving the world, you could have been the richest man (stuff the equal opportunities, it's getting tedious) on earth.

Now you are sharing a run-down shack with some mice, a million spiders, and a rare form of fungus. you are listed as "experiencing moderate financial difficulties" (ie. you can't afford a piece of paper on which to work out how deeply you are in debt).

There is only one way left to earn a living: bounty hunting. That is where a (substantial) reward is agreed on before you risk life and limb for the salvation of mankind.

You have heard about a military bunker, roughly two miles north of deimos, which could easily have been infected. Using a little blackmail, you secure a nice hefty sum for assassination of the tyrant ruling the adjoining subterranean caves. However, in a (feeble) attempt to withstand the invasion, the occupants of the base did their best to seal off the caves, so access will not be easy... >:->

If the author had five friends, they could be called "Benfold's Five". My joke. This is a large and very bland level without much detail; lots of empty square rooms and Dr Who corridors. It's behind the times for 1997 and feels very spartan and imaginative today. There are a couple of decent bits (some imps feasting on a corpse, and... that's it). Monster fights unimpressive, separated by silence. One good lava chasm, but it's slim pickings.

      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.

      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.
