About This File

Sweet level with bricks and corroded metal as its main texture theme. Some wood and marble too. I've pushed the engine to its very limit in just about every damn area - enormous level of detail. A LOT harder on UV than the first version, but lower skills should suit mortal players fine. The level is now highly non-linear. Woohoo.

There's no silly plot, just kill stuff.

you can only have so many baron/hell knight vs ssg rooms before it gets tiring

while often forgotten in time due to being a single-level wad, Tantrum 2 deserves quite a lot of credit. it's a very rough 1998 level! one of the few in fact. the monster density in ratio to the supplies provides quite a challenge, so it helps to keep healthy as much as possible (I somehow missed the one armor in this level). while only a medium-sized level, Tantrum 2 does its best to not only keep you on your toes, but to keep exploring. there's quite a few traps to look out for, along with plenty of mid-tier and high-tier enemies, particularly Hell knights and barons are used often. you can easily forget where the red key could be if you keep exploring. still, it's a worthwhile challenge.

A very fun 1998 level. The author is stingy with health and ammo, so it requires you to bring your A-game, especially if you want to survive the myriads of traps. It can get repetitive towards the end though, what with the constant crowds of Hell Knights and Barons.

A good looking brown level with way too high monster density, it becomes a chore after a while. Can't recommend playing, only looking at some of the architecture.

This is from August 1998. I haven't played the first Tantrum (id=5483). There were no more. This is an entertaining level that starts out quite tough - it's a meaty level for manly men. It's a castle set in a mountainside. Not much health; the kind of level that makes you fight half a dozen barons of hell and then gives you a +10 stimpack. Gets monotonous after a while (the traps are basically all the same) but fun nonetheless.

A Great level. Though I did find ammo to be very sparse in ULtra Violence. At one point I was taking on a bunch of Hellknights with berserker powered fists ...crazy.

This is superb, it goes ahead of tantrum I in every singlr way. Detail, design, lighting, theme, gameplay, enjoyability, challend, atmosphere, architecture, monster placement, progression, enjoyability, and spirit all range from good to very good to superb. Excellent!!

Fantastic level design and great looking. The one
thing that marks this wad down for me, is the
repititive use of too many enemies. Apart from
that, this is great.

5/5 Physically exhausting in a good way. Everything in the original map has been dialed up to extremes. It's rough, with pretty tight health and ammo, but doable. Some pretty good surprises, too, like the Cacodemon room. Architecture also feels significantly improved, cutting out the cavern/bloodfall rooms in favor of more interweaving insanity. - KMX E XII

Pffft, The very first linedef (0) is set to impassable - that's a bug Ola... fortunately GZDoom sorted that. Still, this is a very challenging wad with many surprises and tough battles -love it. Try it on UV -fast! 4/5 -jb

As good, but not better, than the original. My only criticism is that it is too similar. It's good fun regardless. 4/5. -TRRobin.

      the tenth week of dwspd has the theme of "flooded city" which is a nice echo back to the very first of the dwspds which was "lava city". here we have seven maps, all deal with flooded areas, and the quality of these maps is increasing as you go along. first map is definitely not city, but does show the fake floor trick, then you climb just one building to the top. second map also isn't a city but more of a temple that looks strange (plus having to rocket barons in tight halls). third map, uh, there's not much to this one but at least it did what it could thematically. fourth map brings all the carnage underwater while allowing for an optional cyberdemon fight. fifth tries but doesn't really have that city vibe, yet at least had some interesting things to it. the best two maps are MAP06 (in theme it's the best) and MAP07 (a concoction of buildings strewn over the nukage, having to go across each one until you get a radsuit so you can tackle the center). well there's more maps, and it feels a lot more fun than some of the previous ones.

      Pretty meh mapset, this wad crashes on vanilla doom 2 since a ceiling texture is acting funny in MAP01, in boom 2.02 it shows perfectly. Best of the bunch is MAP04, but overall, meh mapset with some weirdness.

      for the ninth installment of dwspd, the theme was to "try and rebuild E1M1 without looking at the original". wow, THAT is a low map turnout, at a measly two. guess it was a lot more difficult than some would have bothered with. but let's see what we got. the first is rather accurate as far as actual layout, though texturing and monster placement is assuredly different. but this one has problems, namely one of the secrets is one-time only as well as an exit switch that doesn't work. it's odd for me to say the real winner was actually the second of the two, despite it looking less accurate, it was much more fun, a Go 2 It mini-version of Hangar with a few hordes of monsters done proto-slaughter style.

      for the eighth installation of dwspd, the theme was to "build a warehouse inside a castle". or is it to build a castle and then a warehouse inside it? who knows. anyways, this is easily the weakest dwspd thus far, with a very low map turnout of only 6 maps, and none of them are actually all that well done theme-wise. sure, the combat is up there, but let's see. MAP01 and MAP06 don't have anything that really pertains to warehouse per se. MAP02 is incredibly mediocre overall and it's possible to prevent yourself from ever leaving due to the lift switch being one-time only. MAP03 seems nice with the crates in places but it doesn't seem finishable due to one lift never rising to the red key AND an impassable linedef in front of the exit. MAP04 and MAP05 are the most interesting, though each has a share of problems with MAP04 for some reason having invisible crates while MAP05 tries for a siege scenario, starting in the warehouse and giving all the supplies, but just try killing everything out there when you can't head back up once you fall down. yes, I'm fully aware that these maps don't get bug-tested or play-tested before release, but it's always best to leave the best possible impression.

      for the seventh iteration of dwspd, the theme was to "build a Doom 1 level in Episode 1 style". this theme contrasts quite well with the previous theme of building a final level of Doom 2 in dwspd006, but the familiarity of Episode 1 style levels in E1Mx is bound to put a damper on the overall score of this one. you'll notice that Fredrik isn't here this time around, so there's not much to be wowed by his great speedmaps. the rest of the maps are just speedmap juice, they are usually mediocre and have a few bugs, some are more blatant than others (the first map you can just skip everything since Blackterror forgot to tag the exit door as a key door). also you'll need to warp to E1M9, since E1M3 does not go to the secret map. unlike the others that have generally mixed quality in many different mapslots, the levels actually seem to get better the more you go through. the first few maps are shit and are really small in size, but the layouts and monster count increases and things get more fun as you go along.
