Try The Void of Hell by Zrrion the insect. It's really hard but also very fun.

What do you need - wads or more gameplay mods?


Something like brutal doom where the platform and 30 wads are all in one.

By the way, what is Brutal Doom? Seems like it is more different than just the 30 (plus 2 secret) wads offered by Sgt Mark.

It seems you are referring to Brutal Doom: Hell on Earth Starter Pack. It contains Brutal Doom itself and 32 maps designed for Brutal Doom.

Brutal Doom itself is a gameplay mod for GZDoom and Zandronum. There are  many, many other gameplay mods.

GZDoom is a source port, a program that runs Doom maps and mods, targeted for advanced features.

Zandronum is a source port too, targeted for multiplayer.

The nomenclature can be a little confusing at times, but generally Doom downloads are split into two types:


Mods are downloads that change the gameplay, either the rules of the game itself, add new special effects, or add new weapons or powerups or things like that. Brutal Doom is a mod.


Wads are new levels to play. They are named after the traditional file format they're delivered in: .wad. But they can also come in a newer format called pk3 for some souce ports. Confusingly, mods also usually come in .wad or .pk3, but they're still called mods to distinguish them from wads. Occasionally you'll get a wad that replaces the entire 32 levels of Doom 2: this is called a mega-wad.


Generally individual mods and individual wads usually work well together, but there's always a chance for conflict.


Finally, all wads and mods are made with specific source ports in mind. These source ports go from "simple" to "advanced": more advanced source ports will (usually) play maps for simpler source ports, but not vice versa. In order of simple to advanced, the most commonly used source ports are:


"Vanilla" (aka Chocolate Doom)

Limit removing



Then a bunch of advanced ports that all play the above, but won't often play maps made for each other:


GZDoom, ZDoom, Eternity, Edge/3DGE, Risen3D, Zandronum etc.

I have a modified version of OBLIGE but it uses an older version (7.59) and it changes a lot of the prefabs to have texture variants plus more textures used per themes: Linky

The request is quite open ended and I'm feeling particularly mischievous so here's a random selection heavily focused on puzzle maps, mwahahaha.


Eternal Doom  and the unfinished followup Eternal Doom IV: Return from Oblivion
