Kill The Boss!

Recommended Posts

No, not the night auditor at work. But rather in reference to the Great Boss Battle Contest being hosted over at the NewDoom community forums. The theme (as you may have guessed) is to create a unique or interesting boss battle using stock Doom 2 resources and Boom compatibility. You can read about all this and more on those wondrous NewDoom community forums. The contest deadline is October 19th.

I remember an old map called ZAP30 that had a creative Icon of sin set up with a cybie; you were supposed to get a massive infight going, then run for the rocket launcher and end the map.

No interest?

You'll need to make a boss fight, and that's it. However, some guidelines are always in place in a contest:

- The maps shouldn't be large at all. Some examples of good map sizes are the following: MAP07 (Dead simple), MAP30 (Icon of Sin), E2M8 (Tower of babel) and E3M8 (Dis). So while there isn't a clear size limit, large maps are frowned upon.

- You can be very creative with the map. It doesn't have to necessarily be a cyberdemon or spider mastermind fight. It can be a fight against a horde of monsters, or even some hideous puzzle thingy (the wad cyberdreams comes to mind). The player may not even have to fire a shot. So creativity is a bonus. A one on one fight with a cyberdemon in an arena most likely isn't enough to win the contest.

Port: Boom compatible
Mode: SP (MP won't be judged)
Map number: Open
Custom textures and music are allowed.
Custom sprites, weapons, monsters and sounds are not allowed.
One map per author.
Difficulty levels aren't required/won't be judged
Please include a README with the map.

Deadline: October 19th

One goal with the contest is to have such a volume of maps that we can compile them into a (hopefully) large map-set.

Thanks for your time and thanks to Dittohead for posting the news.

Id like to see Dittohead make a map for this. ;) By the way, have you done any mapping lately Dittohead?


Well, I would love to, but I'm trying to finish up an episode for release hopefully soon.
