About This File

As with previous Lost WADs, I built this with attention to texture alignment and playability using ALL the keys. However, This time, I pushed the game-engine while paying close attention to shading, lighting and texture choices. The size of this WAD as a raw-copy (before music, graphics, etc) was 168k! I think you'll appreciate the extra work when you play The Lost WAD #4 and it earns and permanant home on your floppy discs!

A hidden gem among 1997 levels. It felt a little but dated considering this was made in 1997 and final doom had been out already. The first part was very fun, but happened to decrease in interest after the half-point in the map. Pretty good ammo distribution, I felt the need to search for ammo and secrets, which is a good thing. I felt there was a little too much invun sphere lying all over the place. The end was hectic, but satisfying. Good job.

This is afrom the tail end of the pre-source port era. It's very old-fashioned for something released in late 1997; it feels like one of the better Doom 1 levels from 1994. It's not bad, and it entertained me for a few minutes, but it's totally undistinguished and forgettable. The layout is basically a compact grey stone maze, with lots of imps and a couple of the harder monsters, but you have just about enough ammo. It's not particularly hard on UV.

      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.

      Such a wonderful creation! I really wish there were some more maps so this could make it into ZDaemon Thursday Night Survival (TNS) someday...
