Having downloaded and played a lot of levels, I have learned

that not all of them are quality products. This section is dedicated to presenting

You with the best I've come across. Only the best, not the OK, but the best will

be placed on this page. So whenever I play a truly excellent wad, it

will be posted here. In no particular order.

An episode 4 replacement for Ultimate Doom. 

Detail and amazing gameplay go hand in hand in this compilation of Richard's awesome dark and moody Spooky wads. There's also some new levels which together with the old ones seems to have no end in playability and fun. This is clearly the work of a superior designer! It's so good, you'll never get it out of your head. It amazes you endlessly!

SP level for DooM II

A memorable level! Growing older by the hour, but still exhibiting some of the best Brick'n'metal around! The level is at places tight, but manages to amaze the player multiple times when shifting into open areas not seen better in the orig. DooM II. Repetitive architecture is a far away land in this map with its truly amazing structures inviting the player for a superb gaming experience including the most original concept seen a single map. Relive the DooM II experience with this map! Its that good!

An episode 2 replacement for Doom.

"An episode in the classic Doom style. The goal is to recreate as accurate as possible the atmosphere of the original id levels" That's what it says in the text file, and that's exactly what you get! The most impressive compilation of eps. 2 levels ever made. John Romero himself has expressed his outmost admiration for Classic. It's smooth, beautiful and a stroke of genius.

SP level for DooM II / Boom.

The amount of work that Malcolm has put into this level must exceed what most designers consider as a maximum. However, the gameplay is carefully and perfectly created to match the eminent design delivering a truly amazing DooM II experience. One can only admire and enjoy Chord 3!

SP level for DooM II / Boom.

The Selfish series looks and plays a lot like the original DooM II levels, only better. They use a wide range of textures and flats perfectly mixed and excellently combined. Indoor and outdoor areas glide perfectly into each other and creates a sinister yet fascinating world. Selfish3 is the ultimate DooM II gaming experience with all the eye candy and action that comes with it!
