About This File

Somewhere on the moon of Phobos, a school sits in a big crator. This school takes dumb daemons from hell and teaches them how to become REAL FIGHTERS! They go to classes durring the day, and they go out and do their "homework" on the streets of the inner Phobos city at night. YOU HAVE TO SHUT DOWN THE INSTITUTION!
Well, well, well. Looks like they hide the entrance to the school grounds fairly well, don't they? But you, B.J. BLASKOWICTZ, are too smart for them! (You'll see.) You go through the corridors of the building, and you're suddenly telleported into a classroom! The daemons, as well as the "professors", turn their excercises into applicastions! But you'll blast them all to kindom come, even the Barron "professors"! As you go on a classroom rampage, many daemons in the cafeteria will be shooting at you!
After all of that, you might take a trip to the Administration Offices are share a little of your lead over there as well. You finally reach the "final exam" room, filled LITERALLY with about a couple hundred daemons, and could be as high as SEVERAL hundred ALL AT ONCE! And if that wasn't enough, when you get on the balcony, up to TWENTY Barrons Of Hell will join in on the fun! (Now you know why this is soooooooooooooooooo jerky!) No need to pannic! You got a GIGANTIC room full of ammo!
After giving your best educational lesson to the daemons of Hell, you go through the exit, and you can play a level you'll have control over!

Fun, in a braindead "here's a ton of ammo, kill the hundreds of demons" way. Still, architecture is mostly plain, texturing is repetitive, inescapable sludge pits, a sludge maze, makes regular doom.exe crash on occasion, the secret area is STUPIDLY hard to find, and it's not that challenging despite the monster count. 1/5 -VV

This school...nothing. Back when I went to school, I had to wear an blouse with oversized peter-pan-collars, knickerbockers, walk 10 miles uphill in 6 feet of snow, and the nun would crack my knuckles with a yardstick if I so much breathed too loudly. As for the level 3 stars.

This is basically Fiffy experimenting with how many monsters he can throw into a Doom Level with little thought on the Gameplay. Avoid......

A mess and a total waste of time, even for lovers of vintage mapping from Doom's days of naivety.

For reasons sufficiently described above, this wad can be ignored without getting the idea of missing something interestingly.

This is an old-style "school massacre" wad, back from the innocent days of late 1994. It crams in over 800 monsters, which was pretty rare for 1994; lord knows how well it played with Doom.exe on a 486SX25. It doesn't play very well with Zdoom today - it works, but it's really just a bunch of square rooms filled with hundreds of monsters that tend to kill each other. Gameplay consists of shooting 843 monsters and then winning.

      Are you up for a brutal, non stop challenge through detailed, but bland environments? The Secret Energy doesn't let up, so it's either a low health slaughter map or a speed runner's dream to get from switch to switch, all while enemies constantly spawn in with each button press. There's little health for such meaty enemies and even on the easiest difficulty, it's a slog to kill them all. The place is so big and centralized, you might miss where you need to go next. No arrows, the switches are around corners and walls inside of rooms that may or may not have opened.   It feels like a punishing experience from the first room. It fills with imps, then pinkies, then flying enemies, then revenants and a cyber demon. The entire map is like that. Enter a room and it will flood in via waves. Each wave opens up something new and you need to find where that new thing is. Is it a switch on a wall? Is it a switch inside of a pillar? Did a door just open up? Are you supposed to go back into the main corridors of the complex? At least on my first play through, I felt there was a poor flow to the level.   The game has its detail, but detail with greens, browns, a few blue wires across the floors, perhaps to guide you to the next area. It was all lost on me and blurred together into a jumble. While the structures of each new room was different, it's the color scheme and darkness that stayed the same.   Give it a try. There is something redeemable in here for those hardcore enough to endure the first room, let alone the entire map.

      Believe the hype, Sand Chain is indeed a terrible map. Not terrible like oh this must be someone's first map or designed by a team of kinder gardeners and their friend in second grade who can use DoomBuilder, I'm talking hall of mirror walls, coupled with the fact you can go through the game's exit switches. The map is short and sweet, which only adds to how terrible it is. The level is a single hallway with... get this... a bend! Oh stay with me here... and then after that bend, there is a bank of switches! Yeah, that's it. The level isn't meant for Nightmare, but it should become everyone's first accomplishment of, "I can beat this level on nightmare."

      I suppose in an artistic way, the hall of mirror affect on all walls is to disorient the player, so they miss the big twist at the end. Thus costing speed runners valuable seconds on their first play through. The big twist being the bend. Other than that, there are plenty of shotgun shells, shotgun troopers and health to ensure you make it to the end of this brutal and rigorous test of endurance over the course of 5 - 30 seconds.

      This is the level that has become famous, because everyone needs to play it themselves to add their two cents of "it's crap" to the pile of reviews that will no doubt entice more people to play this game. It's a gorgeous display of everything wrong without the annoyance of having to play it for longer than a full minute. Complete with someone from an aol email to spice up it's true 1995 feel... despite being made in 2009.   * slow clap * You've done it. You've found a new twist on terrible.

      I guess this was meant to be a serious wad, just using a trick to make the C-Demon hard to see. I don't think it was a deliberate troll of the style that caught on later, eg Sand Chain and the Terry wads. IMHO it nowhere near holds the record for "worst wad ever" (even if it did once) so it is now "over-rated" in that respect. There are wads where you die quicker (eg "Stupid Benchmark #1"), and wads with worse graphics( eg "Sand Chain").  TBH, after all the hype I was a bit disappointed, I was expecting worse LoL.

      Doomers these days have varying levels of patience. I know I have some of the worst when it comes to quickly finishing areas and moving on, which is why I prefer shorter levels most of the time. this particular map, a Maximum Doom map by the way, is one that completely tested my patience.   this is 8 levels long, from E1M1 to E1M8, and is sort of a proto-slaughtermap episode replacement. every map here has at least 200 monsters, and the layouts of each say that they are compact in size. so the action would be pretty good and fun right?   WRONG   while it's fun to kill all these enemies, this is honestly horribly balanced. on the first level, you only really get a shotgun and a chaingun, and it took me a while to get just one armor too. is that the worst part? I can actually enjoy the challenge of such a gameplay scenario so no. what's problematic about each and every level in this wad is that when you're not killing enemies, you're just sort of fucking around. in other words, you're switch hunting. but this is the worst kind due to lifts that have zero indications that they are lifts, as well as switches that have zero indication of what they did. not to mention some walls are triggers, when they really don't have any indication that they really do anything. oh yes, and mandatory secrets and backtracking. I would like the combat more if it gave more weapons too, not one plasma gun or BFG in sight, and all that backtracking just...fucking...headdesk. there's no reliable way to even speedrun this, to the point where I wonder if the author ever realized that other's would tire the fuck out over it. "these are the easy ones" this has all the hallmarks of a bad Maximum Doom map.   it's amazing how varied my Maximum Doom experience is so far. there are some really fun maps, mediocre but quick maps, and some long and nasty ones. I'm honestly trying to avoid reviewing any maps from there but i'll make an exception for this particular one since it's just unbelievably bad.

      Pointless crap.  A small yard, empty except for a futuristic shotgun. No monsters and no exit. See my screenshot and you've seen it all.
