About This File

Issue 1 Although this is my second release, its the first wad that I completed to my satisfaction. Went back to it recently and added a few lighting effects. I also pinched the sky from "plutonia" to give a 'bright & breezy' feel.

This level is 214kb when unzipped.

(Issue 2) Many thanks to those who e-mailed me ref Issue 1. This issue has removed that terrible bug at the start (how annoying). I have also changed the sky - less garish than before.

This is from 1998. I haven't played any of the others in the series. This one gets off to a poor start, with a dark cavern maze that sickens me. It improves considerable when you get outdoors, and continues to get better as it goes along. It's done in a Doom II style, which is unusual, as most levels seem to be inspired by Doom I. Nice balance of health, ammo, and monsters, bit too many "chaingunner balconies". Becomes very good by the end.

Although technically not as good as later entries in the series, dickie2 has a special kind of atmosphere, which makes it one of my favorites. This map was released in 1998, but it has that old-school 1995 feel, without having the shortcomings of those old maps.

Probably two levels here, which are mechanically linked together with blue door as border. In both are too blended texture selection on my taste - cave, metal, wood, redbrick etc. Don't look as wad by famous mapper either (but little better than dickie01). Early ssg grab is quite annoyingly tricky, because you shall need to skip twice two barons on a narrow ledge. *** /hth

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
