About This File

This is level 1 of a 4 level storyline episode.

[It's too much work to make 9, so we decided to compress the story a bit!]

STORY SO FAR: [Level 1--Contamination (invade1.wad)]

Mars Base sent an urgent distress call after a new gateway opened up there. You had been sent on the battlecruiser INQUISITOR to combat this new INVASION...

...but not all had gone according to plan. The ship was attacked and boarded just as it entered orbit around Mars. You awakened from hypersleep to find your crewmates either mutated or dead. Your objective was clear: end the CONTAMINATION or die trying...

You finally managed to eradicate all the evil hellspawn from the lower levels of the ship. But, just as you were about to proceed to THE UPPER DECKS, through a viewport, you spotted a huge alien space hulk approaching the INQUISITOR...

[end of Level 1]

[Level 2--The Upper Decks (invade2.wad)]

You must now not only annihilate all intruders aboard the INQUISITOR, but somehow deal with the entire shipload of the alien hulk.

[Please read INVPRO2.TXT before playing the level for the complete story]

Second level of the unfinished project Invasion and it's an improvement...in parts. Gameplay is mostly the same, but there's more custom textures and a pretty damn impressive hell section/setpiece. Everything is also more polished.

There's still a lot of tunnels and lifts, which does get tedious. Rocket Launcher is hard to find(in fact if you're thinking of playing this, it's in the tunnels in a secret compartment, and even with that info you need to look for it for quite a while).

The map has great atmosphere though. It definitely looks like a spaceship. Ammo placement is different(from the prequel map). If you run out you have to remember where the armory is or where you left that most recent ammo pile.

If you played the previous map, you should play this too. Compared to most 1994 levels it's pretty damn impressive how much detail and decent gameplay is in this.

"it's generally more atmospheric and sophisticated than most levels from 1994 and 1995". And 2009, by the way. Amazing, one of the best maps i've played. --- 5/5

Amazing wad, blows its prequel away. The atmosphere and detailing is incredible for 1994, and the battles are really challenging on UV. It's a shame the authors never got to finish this "series". 4.5/5

Wow I loved this... but mannn, I started to get frustrated near the end (took me 40+ min to finish). Anyhow, what I really liked was the emphasis on realistic level design! 5/5

This is the sequel to another classic from 1994. It's a bit like System Shock. The architecture is detailed and clever, there's a lot of action, and it's generally more atmospheric and sophisticated than most levels from 1994 and 1995. There's a bizarre face with chomping teeth, a multi-story lift, and the sick bay looks to have early snuff porn impse in one room. In fact the bit with the teeth gave me with the creeps and that's rare for a Doom level.

I can't believe this isn't 5 stars.. I would say that this is my favorite wad of all time. The atmosphere is mind-blowing, the story compelling, and the level design and detail are stunning. This is an old wad, yet it still destroys nearly everything released today. Download this now, keep it forever. It's one wad i couldn't recommend getting more. (COOP OWNS ON THIS)

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74
