[M|YAAM] The cat came back, the very next day~
« on: March 20, 2013, 20:28 »

As is traditional, when a new version of DoomRL comes out, I go to beat it. Nothing complex, honestly, just go through it to try out the changes. As is traditional, this is on HNTR, and a Mac/shotty build.

My first impressions is that I really *REALLY* love the new special levels (finding out that they were replacements for certain levels like the Wall and Armory made me feel better about doing them. However, I did not like the rework of the Halls of Carnage as much, as I used to see it as a bit of a breather level. Finding out that the megahealths have been replaced and the lava was sped up was a bit of a rude awakening for me.

The new level generation algorithms are appreciated as well, some of the levels seemed more appropriately hellish.

I am something of a mod hoarder: I keep thinking about the stuff I could use those mods on and hold onto them in hopes of building them. Not fun for inventory management, especially since mods seem much more common, not to mention rare mods.

Armor was something of a problem in previous attempts: it seems that it was very easy to lose armor, even when modded. I quickly learned that the most important thing I could do with the onyx mod I kept finding is to slap it on a red armor, that solved a lot of armor issues. You'll notice that I didn't go for the tower shield: I did not want one as the onyx red was just fine for my needs, although I got it a little late and never really put it to use.

Finally, the difficulty curve seems different: the first levels are fairly easy, but once you pass the Bruiser Brothers, things ramp up quickly. A definate challenge, I think.

All said, I am enjoying the new version!
