Idea about new special level
« on: November 21, 2014, 15:48 »

I was playing some of recent well-made DOOM 2 wads, and found a really interesting map.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4oU75ssComo : Map 11 "Hex" of "Dark Tarutarus".

Early area of this map contains a lot of archviles confined in "pits",
resurrecting all dead monsters directly nearby,
until the player get 2 keys and press the switch that lowers the whole corridor,
to make all archviles eventually appear - see 1:30 of the video - and kill all of them.

I was really impressed by this crazy idea about map design.

So, how about creating new special level that features many archviles behind the "transparent and indestructible" walls?
That is, they can attack you, and resurrect (non-archvile) enemies through the wall,
but you cannot hit them until pressing some switch across the "corridor".
Oh, Azrael's Scythe can be extremely useful for here then.


The design I thought was:

^ : inv-globe
bolded # : special wall (transparent, indestructible)
S : lever (I don't know the appearance of the lever in ascii version)

This is quite an insane map. One of the crazier Doom II maps i've seen. I like it when you think it's all over and then at 7 minutes the entire pit fills up with Arch-Viles. Could be a nice idea for a special level. It will also make picking up skulls more desirable, seeing as it is quite a small corridor.

Sounds like a nastier version of the Mortuary...

Hmm...

Side note: why have I not seen this thread before?
