About This File

It's the year 2094, and after all of hell's daemons that returned to the Mt. McKinley Base (FIFFY.WAD: REoL TOUGH: Hell On Earth), found it all boarded up. They all broke in, and were sent to the new Detention Center located next to it.

Most of the daemons were just awaiting for Satan to start the new school year at SATAN'S SCHOOL OF WARFARE (next REoL TOUGH level. Look for it soon) for classes. They just wanted to go back to hell, but the access way was closed, and they just simply wanted to go back!

One day, HELL BROKE LOOSE! A riot broke out in the Detention Camp (and a fairly nice one too)! Some guards were sent in to put as many deamons as they can into 10 prison cells located in the building, 2 in one cell block, 8 in the other. All could fit 4 comfortably. Some daemons were too big for that requirement. There were just too many daemons running around!

All the guards were killed, and the daemons are running all over the place! A good hiding spot within this Detention Camp is the Unenchanted Forrest! They are ready for ANYONE who gets in their way!

Meanwhile, you, B.J. BLAZKOWICZ, was sent to the White House to be breifed on what's going on atop Mt. McKinley, AGAIN! At first you thought something horrible was to happen to the President. It's worse! It could threaten ALL MANKIND, like George Bush did to this country!

You were given a partial map of the Detention Center, and you were told in a briefing by the Pentagon that you'll have to use a room called The Pit to gain access to all parts of the building. To keep evil ones from escaping, switches throughout the building (sometimes tripwires) are used to activate/deactivate lifts to gain entry to doors in The Pit. All were lowered at night. It's reported the Daemons have lowered all the platforms and filled the pit with 10 feet of radioactive waste! You'll have to find the switches or trip wires to raise the lifts to other doors so as not to get the goo all over you, AND to be able to reach the doors as well! NOTE: ONE door will NOT have a platform for it in The Pit! This door is an "exit only" door to exit the Unenchanted Forrest. BEWARE!

GOOD LUCK! YOU MAY NEED IT!

This is such a waste of a good idea it makes me angry. --1/5

Well I suppose this is an interesting concept but it is pulled of pretty badly. You would think that after four of so maps FIFFY could actually do some half decent architecture however you won't find any of that here. Also while this was released many years before Boom you will definatley want an advanced Source Port since there are far too many "things" on screen at one time for the Original Doom exe to cope

September 1994. It's an early example of those "Reol Tough" levels, which had bullish readme files but were rubbish. This one has 488 baddies - loads for 1994 - and in typical style you just mow down one mob after the next. Gameplay involves holding down the fire button, sidestepping left and right if you're facing imps, just standing still if you're facing demons. Paradoxically therefore it's not hard at all. And there's a tree maze. I gave up at that point.

Good: A fairly good deal of killing to do; some okay lighting at points. Bad: Blocky, uninspired architecture; texture misalignments everywhere; bizarre style errors (e.g., doors in the "sky"); possible to get permanently stuck at least once; the infamous tree maze that STILL slows DOOM.EXE to a crawl. Overall: Not totally unplayable, but fairly dull. 2/5 -VV

      this is a mockery of two of the best wads of all time.  on top of that gameplay sucks.  don't get it for your sake.

      Another solid mapset that captures the PSX version feel perfectly. Maps comes in all flavors, from techbases and urban areas to the menacing void and, of course, HELL and also has some unexpected secrets which you might play it to see. Of course, I absolutely love the PSX version of Doom and this one is no exception. Gameplay speaking, it's pretty balanced and thought out nicely...with ambushes, good monster placement and really nasty traps which you must avoid it at all costs. One thing that will help you a lot is the addition of a new weapon...seriously, that thing is powerful...check it out and try. Maps have a nice look that helps you to be inmersed in the atmosphere and coupled with the music, it's much better.   Great recommendation, give it a try and you'll have a fun time.

      Since I tested the map, I can say that playing it again it still surprises me the amount of effort and detail of the gameplay used, like a lot of portals, clever effects like the one used before you pick up the yellow key saying nope and many nice references including a special secret. Gameplay itself for combat is pretty straightforward with some nasty stuff for you in the Nightmare difficulty. Try that out by all means. Really solid stuff which I totally recommend you folks and play it.

      When first reading this wad's description I thought this will be a 1994 style map, where someone just tried to recreate his office building to shoot up his colleages. Boy, was I wrong!   Going Down emerged as one of my favourite megawads so far, with its very clever use of small to medium map space and interesting gameplay mechanics in every single map. The first couple of maps start innocent enough, but soon you will find yourself navigating literal crawl spaces, thinking about use of space and / or slight puzzle mechanics just before being thrown into hell itself and fighting for your life. Going Down is designed as a literal descent into hell, which was the most beautifully realized aspect of it. How every map slightly changes into a more and more hellish theme is just great, great design work. Even though the later maps delve into slaughter territory I must admit that I still quite enjoyed it. Actually this was the first time I enjoyed being slaugthered and figuring out how to approach the map.   Going Down is simply an amazing piece of work, oozing quality from start to finish and rewarding the player with incredible elevator music inbetween. A must play.
