About This File

32 all new classic levels for Doom 2. The twilight zone dosen't really have a story to it. The Twilight Zone was finished in Janurary 1998 where Level 17 and 18 were Crossing Acheron and Dante's gate. But I did a new level 17 and 18 myself so Dr Sleep wouldn't get angry.

It's a nice an entertaining megawad, interesting geometry and textures are well placed for a wad made back in the 90s.  Plenty of ammo helps you always have enough gun power against monsters.  Good job with the custom HUD, the MapInfo and custom textures.  Tho, I had hard time finding the secrets, some have clues to find them but most don't, they're after walls with the same texture without a hint.  MAP23 - Spaceswitch, was a pain in the butt, with all the switch traps and no hints to guess which was the right switch.  The 2 levels with Icon of Sight fights are a bit confusing, not knowing the typical shoot at the Boss Brain is really a trigger switch, also the MAP30 with the triple Boss Brain cube spawners get quickly cramped leaving with few room to move while you wait for the thin platform to raise and for some reason, after beating that level, instead of the ending screen with the monsters character roll, it replays the same MAP30 on ZDoom

Sincerely, after hearing that this mapset was dull and crap, i was expecting typical 90's style oddeness, but i found it really entertaining, fun, and even with some nice visuals.

Some maps have an identity crisis as they don't know if they are techbase, starbase, corrupted base or hell, this happens from map01 to map11, but this aesthetic is shown during all the mapset, so it is cohesive in some way and don't know why there is a neat TNT feel to them, maybe its the vague realistic absstract combination of the maps.

There are also some higlights on other styles, like medieval, city and even a pyramid.

 

Real drawback here are the IOS fights, i don't like them much. Not a good idea hidding a switch behind an animated texture. But aside from that, they are quite fun and interesting. Oh, Spaceswitch, that map with all the switch traps is totally bad, clues are needed with maybe something to confuce the player about what is the correct one. Right now its a try and fail excercise that is easily beatable with savescumming.

 

I have a really fun time playing this megawad, its not the best mapset out there, but is really entertaining and way better than many oneman megawads that i played from the same time period. Also, its @pcorf first release when he was a teenager, and for me its totally a success.

 

Good job, Paul!
I read there is a probability to make, someday, an improved zdoom version. I think its alright as it is, maybe just rearrange the maps so they have a better cohesive progression.

Great Wad! Easy on UV due to a lot of items and health scattered around. Music 16 is one of best I've ever heard on Doom. Paul Corfiatis did a great job on this one! 5/5.

Some megawads are samey, but this is just one map repeated 32 times.

A pretty solid '98 megawad from Pcorf, not exactly the best megawad out there but it still has some quality maps and standout moments here and there.

Despite the texture misalignments and the HOM mentioned this is pretty solid level set worth playing at least once. Then again I'm a pcorf fanboy. :V

A very challenging WAD. Even more fun and challenge if you use it with Voltlock's Real Guns Advance addon for doom. Some parts are an ambush waiting to happen like map02 at the yellow key (especially if you use RGA 2). Well balanced for the most part. - General Mike

Whoa! This isn't the version I remembered! Was there an updated version uploaded here? Probably was since Massmouth and Romero can be seen on Map32 ;)

Probably one of the best megawads of the late 90's.

This is an older version. A more "recent" one was done in 2004.

Had fun. Good levels overall but they are too linear and simple. If you want challenge don't pick this wad. But i highly recommand it for casual Doomers. I don't find the more recent version very different from the older one. Still, i like it. 3 stars out o' 5. :I ~Rocky XIII, a French Doomer

A megawad of generally short and easy levels that vary greatly in quality. This was made over the course of two years, so the levels made later in Paul's career tend to be better (especially MAP17 and MAP18.) That doesn't excuse some of the maps, though, particularly the awful "puzzle" level that is MAP23, and most maps are simply average. But all in all, it's a solid set of maps. 3/5

Superb but not like AV or HR (level 28 is extremely hellish, I love that!) Unfortunately, some of the levels are a little too small, and there should be a spawner on level 30. More hellishness to the other levels, especially 29.

Excuse the incoherency in theme, with textures seemingly mashed together and single textures often used to cover entire rooms. The extensive linerality in layout can often boil down to repetition, and the gameplay provides little surprises or challenge. HOWEVER.. considering the release date, the one man team and the short completion time (3hrs) it has a delightful nostalgic feel. - 3/5.

      A pretty intricate and fun to explore map sets in a semi-realistic castle with lots of secret passages, doomcute "realistic" furniture that even include a library made out of sector art stuff. The fact that this is a Retextured Doom map is shown greatly here. Pretty neat map, the only real breaker is that this map have a unused red skull key and other keys for the locked doors (blue and yellow keys)? At least i didn't find them. I had to noclip trough them for complete the map. If it could not be for this bug, it will be a great map. But overall, is pretty good. The baroque music is fabulous. Make me think of women in dress and huge wigs dancing in the marble throne room! Or demons in this case.

      An old mid-1990s map, based around a large main arena which contains some interesting structures. For a while it's tough going, and you may die a handful of times (as I did), before getting the hang of the layout and formulating a strategy. Once you get the yellow key though, and access to the BFG, it should be game over for the baddies.   Your calculations can be thrown off track however if the Archvile decides to emerge from the movie theatre at an early stage, and take a stroll out in the open. Another thing to watch for is the Cyberdemon entering the said building while you're in one of the auditoriums, and blocking your escape. I experienced both of these events, with fatal consequences...

      This is not a night sky, it's a space sky, with highly visible galaxies. It won't make sense on Earth because you can't see galaxies with the naked eye, but shall work in space and on any astronomical bodies without or with thin atmosphere.   Also there's a problem with the permission sections in the text files. The outer text file, published with the archive, says: which gives you limited permission to use the sky in your maps, but still not permissive enough to let you adapt the graphics to any modern rendering.   However, the internal (from the archive) text file says: which, while suspicious of lack of attention on writer's part, on this current state it means that you just can't use these graphics in your mods. You can try to contact the author to get a permission, so there's that chance.   So which one is it? Because without further clarification, "yes AND no = no".

      This is fairly straightforward, and most players should be able to complete it on UV in not much more than about 15 minutes. That's not to say it's a pushover - ammo is fairly tight for a good part of the map, and you could fall foul of some distant chaingunners if you're unlucky.

      It's a sky texture replacement wad, it has several files for each iwad and pwad like Eternal Doom. It's a bit dated these days, but for true old-school feel it should be enough. If you feel tired of default sky textures in your iwad playthrough, load this and enjoy different view and feel.
