About This File

You're on leave from your military base. You return to your one stop light town, in Texas. The enviro shell has been raised protecting the town from the dust-storms. As you get to your apartment across from the helo-jet pad. you fall asleap. The next morning, you awake go to the bathroom and move near the window. Something's wrong! You grab your standard issue E-1146 plasma rifle and the spare energy cell, strap on you armor, and prepare. You know your friend the Mayor has has a access key for your uncle Otis's two stores. (The General store, The Gun store) The Mayor's condo is on the other street, as you go out into the hall some disgusting "former" soldiers begin firing at you. You burn a hole clean through one, and give the wall a red coat with the other. "God Damn what the hell was that? I better make it to the Police station to get some help. I wonder how my mother is on the other half of the town?

This is a very good map, especially for its age.I remember this map to be one of the first wads I have ever played. Not slot of health, but who needs health ;). Anyway, 5 stars for this level.

Nowadays it's entertaining but frustrating; loads of hitscan enemies and very little health, which makes it a bit Rainbow Six (it also means that the plasma rifle you start with is useless except at very close range). You can just run to the exit and flick the switch. I can see it being great fun in Deathmatch.

I remember my first LAN party ever, I used this map. Hours of great deathmatch entertainment ensued. There's a great balance of open areas in the streets and close combat indoors. This map is not too big, yet not too small. The balance is great. You can get to a multitude of killing weapons easily, and no one can really become too powerful because everything's nice and spread out. An outstanding work of design, have fun with it. -Calavera

      It's a nice wad overall, nice map design, textures and monster placement, enjoyed playing on D-Touch (GZDoom1.8) with Dude4th weapon mod.  My only complain would be the secrets, they have very few to no clues about their position.  There was a problem on E3M5 on the secrets around the squared starting room with stairs, the wall closes and let me stuck inside, had to use idclip to get out from those secret rooms.

      I recently played through this continuously twice on UV. Overall I feel this is an expertly crafted WAD from start to finish. Beautiful scenery, great soundtrack, and intense gameplay. Maybe a little too intense sometimes, and with that it's probably not a WAD I'll recommend to newbies. If less experienced players absolutely have to try it, I suggest playing on the lower difficulty modes as the included readme suggests. Describing the later maps of this WAD as "brutal" on UV is an understatement to say the least.

      Done with these settings:   - GLBoom+ 2.5.1.4. - Ultra-Violence. - Pistol starts. - Saves every 10 minutes or no saving.   This is a funny memewad of concepts and tricks from the Boom engine. It's anything alike classic conventional Doom gameplay, ergo the chosen compatibility, and brings a specific gimmick in a satirical form for each map. Aesthetics are part of the idea too, by way of monotextured layouts of the simplest geometry, such as to find out which sector/linedef has an action, and mostly grey and brown as the predetermined colours, with a bit of green and red bricks in some levels. Besides, skies made of one resized texture, and music from TV series and movies, the ideal recipe for an experience in Doom one doesn't opt for everyday.    Concept-wise, it's much appreciable to experience each map on its own, even more when the idea of carryovers will only block your progress in survival maps: better leave in bad shape and restart freshly than carry less than 15 hit points and be eternally murdered by former human ambushes. This example is one of Pinchy's numerous parodies of unconventional/inconvenient situations we've all been through in Doom. Humping walls to find progress like in primitive maps, having the screen constantly tinted because of pickups, being harassed by incoming projectiles from monsters out of your FOV, that fear of eating your own splash damage because the door can close at any moment, these are just a few of the most hilarious cases I've seen here. It wouldn't be bad to say not all of the gimmicks were clear enough to me, still don't know what's the meme in map 13. Same in some of the later maps, they seemed to have less ridiculous and more serious content, or at least not something different from earlier maps, but if anything I support that seemingly passion for zombiemen hordes, which held up my enjoyment most of the time. Funnily enough, it wasn't until the very last map that I laughed out loud at doomguy's surroundings, and there was nothing else than THE END messages under a sky in fireblu. Guess I couldn't hold my laugh for too long.   Secret-wise, it's interesting to me that in a wad of this category the only existing secrets serve as a combination of the gimmick in question and helpful extras for survival. The second map's way to hide secret sectors is quite funny indeed. As for favourite maps, I found the concepts in map 02, 04, 07, 09 and 15 to entertain me more, last one because it tickled my fancy for exploration. Some of the rest like 05, 07, 11 and 14 woke my other feelings, not only they made me laugh but also feel tense, those imps and troopers could not beat me!... not more than twice...   Overall, even if not all of the maps made sense, or had strange concepts I didn't understand, the point was to laugh, and I believe that was achieved here. Because laughter is good for the organism, check this out. My rate is 7/10.

      Not too shabby. Very intricate level with halls & rooms to explore taking up almost every square inch of the castle. You do have to look through pretty much the whole place to find the necessary keys, but you'll have fun in the process. Most of the gameplay is pretty simple run & gunning of mooks but there are a couple neat traps, like the teleporting/telefragging area and the exit. Despite the large and labyrinthine design of the level, it doesn't get boring or easy to get lost in due to the abundance of landmarks (mainly sector furniture) and high interconnectedness. Texture alignment is quite bad, but oh well. There are some replaced sounds which are a bit odd but not bad, which kind of encapsulates the whole wad.

      If you want something quick, fun, challenging, and a little nostalgic, play this.   Good job, Jimmy.
