About This File

See story below.

I needed to test out the new texture modification tools in DeeP97, so I started with making some new texture names. Then I got carried away having too much fun and ended up with this level.

This is a = BOOM = only release with elevators, conveyer belts, scrolling floors, underwater fun new sprites, new enemies, new weapons and other challenges. More textures added and some elements put back in that were not possible with standard DOOM because of visplane overflow limits (now gone with BOOM).

This release fixes some underwater elevator hom problems that occurred with the final release of BOOM. The elevator switches are now stationary, not a perfect fix. Will wait and see if this type of design will be supported better in later versions of BOOM.

KABOOM demonstrates complex and unique construction techniques with a high degree of detail (a DX4 and above is suggested). Set the Overlap Tolerance=0 in DeeP97 (F5 map options) to prevent vertex merging when modifying this level.

Besides the BOOM tricks, there are 2 different textures on a -normal- wall, double lifts (you need to go down and then down AGAIN to get the weapon: room to left at start with door, go down 2x in pedestal), lot's of other visuals and a hell of a lot of fun.

Go save the world....

Cramped, full of frictionless sectors for no reason, full of HOM and other errors. In short, this is crap. * -sargebaldy

A very good map. Maybe you're playing it with the wrong exe or something.

      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...

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.
