Inside The Feared Madness (Feedback Appreciated)

Recommended Posts

I'm very glad to see new maps for GZDoom! This one left a good impression after playing, due to the variety of locations. Almost every room has its own recognizable style and different color schemes. In addition, almost everywhere player can meet the elements of a microdetail. All this is a signs of excellent skills, considering that the map was made in just a month. The duration is also pleasantly surprising.

 

The gameplay is not hard at all, but I was died several times. This was mainly due to the reckless use of berserk-pack. In spite of the fact that I played rather sloppy, there were enough health and armor on the map, so that the gameplay did not turn into a cycle of permanent save-loads, which indicates a well thought-out balance.

 

I love all these features in GZDoom (slopes, dynlights, e.t.c.) and am glad when they are abundantly used. Thanks to use of sector and dynamic lighting, the standard textures look fresh to me.

 

Lastly, I would like to mention about one bug. These are metal bars with a tag 3. When the player passes over them and provokes their rising, he can fallback behind them and will be locked, without the possibility to pass on without noclip. You can seen this in demo.

I very much enjoyed this! The detailing is nice without being excessive, the new shotgun sound is punchy, a trip to hell bits were unexpected and fun, new monsters are well used even if I would like to see more of Arachnobaron and not just as a final boss fight.

I would maybe like to see a tiny bit increase in difficulty because it felt a bit too easy even for a first casual playthrough. There's also a bit in a room with slime dumps, where it is possible for a player to fall into a pool and trap themselves. It's absolutely not that important, but just to let you know. Here's a screenshot:

EDIT: I also liked that apart from a nukage, railing, skies and two walls the level is made with stock DOOM II textures.
