About This File

s The first level was started as part of a TC, but after finding out I was not allowed to see the new textures (the head guy would put them in AFTER I sent him the wad), I decided to quit the project. How do you make a wad without seeing the textures that will go in it? I also changed the first 2 areas a little so as not to steal his idea for the level. Level 1 - The Beginning of Confusion Somehow you've taken the wrong teleporter and ended up in someones back yard...? Or, it could be some type of lost world you've stumbled upon? :) Get your ticket at the booth. Do you play checkers? Have fun in the outside play area where teleporting is the 'in' thing (not you... them!). Level 2 - Midroads to Confusion Not one of the larger levels you'll ever play. No keys. Level 3 - The End of Confusion I started this level at the end and worked my way to the beginning. I had no idea what was coming next. It turned out to be an interesting excursion through the reaches of hell. No keys... just kill. And yes... Cyber is in there. Damn me! Not to tough a kill for an avid Doomer. Level 4 - Confusion Justified My first use of the BOOM engine. A few places to visit, sights to see, and of course, nasties to kill. - The Arch-Vile Experimentation Center (he's a pushover) - Drop Zone (not what you are thinking of) - Imps Playground (they'll move away, and rush you) - Shooting Gallery (now this is fun!) I've used just a couple of the features of BOOM in this level.

Four maps dated April 1998. The readme documents a troubled genesis. They're early source port levels with a 1995 feel; with mild use of conveyor belts but thankfully no pop-up messages. Map01 has some nice touches (the draughts board) and is entertaining, but marred by a mazey switchhunt; Map02 is obviously unfinished; Map03 is a pretty good dungeon; Map04 is an sometimes fiddly silver techbase, with a shooting gallery that's funnier than it sounds.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
