This is a week of strangeness, as four very odd new WAD files slither their way into Newstuff.
- AndrewB Sucks It by Ralphis - - This is a small single map for Doom 2. Taking place in a bloody metal room, you fight through a horde of Imps and a Cyberdemon. There is a new title screen graphic replacement as well as some music replacements.
- Openprojects by Lament - - We have something very different this time, as this WAD is more symbolic than playful. It includes a very small map, which tells a tale of two IRC channels. It may be a helpful guide if you ever find yourself in search of real-time DOOM discussion.
- GooberMan's DeathMatch Series by Ethan Watson - - A very uniquely-designed deathmatch map for Doom 2. Taking place in an abandoned asteroid mine, this large map has dark ash-filled caverns, hallways, and some neat special effects. Each weapon is placed in its own area, and power-ups are placed cleverly. Special effects include slopes, surveillance cameras, a skybox, and a rocket-launching machine. The music from Map25 of Doom 2 is used. Requires ZDoom.
- Doom - The Arcade Game by Ethan Watson - - The strangeness continues this week. A single map for Doom 2, but very non-typical. It's a simple game where you must sink a few imps on their battleships using 50 bullets, unless of course you decide to cheat. It's surprisingly difficult, but gives you an intermission screen if you succeed. Requires ZDoom.
