Ray Mohawk's Manic Monday! 6 map vanilla mini-sode (Release Candidate 1)

Recommended Posts

Just played it all in one sitting in GZDoom. Awesome episode! Really fun, with lots of armour to protect against the weak opposition you get to gleefully mow through on UV ("Something to Prove", IIRC). The fun music choices, bright and cheery atmosphere and fast-paced, fun game play make this a perfect example of how I like my Doom. The end of MAP05 got a bit rough, but I could handle it, and then MAP06 was genuinely challenging and proved an explosive finale with a fun final moment. Great work Doomkid!

Thanks a ton for the review and feedback, Phobus. Reviews like this are one of my favorite parts of mapping - reading each players experience with the wad after the mapping process itself is complete. Cheers man!

Just finished it! Dude I loved it! You had me immediately sold with the "Morbid Angel" poster! DEATHMETAL FORVER BRO!! So laid back and fun to play. I got to a point where I looked at my monster kills and didn't even realize how many I killed cause I was so relaxed while playing. I really like the "no recoil rifle" I'm glad that the knife isnt weak as well it actually very useful, I thought it might be when looking at the screen shots. Your level design is perfect. Things are very well balanced and I like the custom monsters you added as well, not to overpowered and not too weak. Music choice is great! Nothing better than mowing down the devil's army while "Down on the Corner" or "China Grove" is playing and putting in Rod Stewart was good laugh!All in all Doomkid, very very fulfilling and fun mod. Good job friend! SOLID! BTW you're a Zappa fan? Do you like Captain Beefheart? "Fast and Bulbous!"

Thanks a ton for the feedback, I really do appreciate it. Big time Zappa fan and a fan of Beefheart too! I’m glad you liked the music selection. I was this close to putting a Zappa MIDI in there, but I didn’t want to ditch any of the existing songs. Thanks again for the comments!

Baking crossfades into an animated GIF hurts me deeply.

lol I can’t help but ask why, just the unnecessary file size bloat or is there something else? I’ve done it for a few of my releases now, just having the static images scroll through seemed a bit too boring visually. Maybe I’ll just do a classic spread of screenshots next time, they’re easier to take in that way after all.

I swear I responded to this post. I might be losing my marbles..

 

Most of my SP stuff and even some of my deathmatch stuff features numerous references to one another :) The only wads I’ve made that are explicitly not part of the same world are The Devilz Work and Revenge of the 90’s. In all my other releases I made sure that the stories could feasibly stick together, even as basic and silly as they are!

I like how you seem to have maintained a very similar visual aesthetic between this and the Rowdy Rudy stuff!

 

Will definitely be playing through this, not likely until the weekend though!

Found a few hud-face bugs(not critical,but still a little annoying)

-STFEVIL0 is same as STFEVIL1(have bloody nose)

-STFST12 have black pixel on eyebrow(just compare it to original face to notice that)

Good stuff as usual Doomkid, definitely had fun blasting through these. I like how free-flowing the combat is and you can go pretty much all out in the earlier maps. Dangers mount up in the second half of the set but there is still a lot of room for aggression. Health and armor are in abundance but I did find pretty much all secrets. The Rev that is inside the secret in map04 does not wake up until you shoot him directly, even when the secret is open; perhaps not intended?

D1m3, thanks for pointing out those HUD issues, I’ll get them fixed up once I’m back at my computer.

 

Veinen, thanks for recording demos for me! That rev is indeed meant to wake up once the secret is open. Glad you pointed it out, I somehow didn’t notice while testing.

The thing that would make this perfect would be some goofy tropical holiday theming for the monsters, like in Duke Caribbeans. Sunglasses, flower necklaces, swimming trunks, and other such silliness.
