Non-Doom Level Recommendations

Post by Hellscribbler »

As the title says, anything that isn't Doom. Heretic, Hexen, Strife, Chex, Hacx, anything that runs on (G)ZDoom, what are your level wad recommendations?

Would FreeDoom 1 & 2 count? Genuine question, haha

On the other hand, not sure if you're looking for something specific (nice architecture, challenging combat, big/small sized maps, etc). In any case, here's a simple list:

- For Heretic:
- Wayfarer: 1 episode, big maps, great architecture.
- Faithless: 1 episode, hub-like design, casual playthrough.
- Curse of D'Sparil: 1 episode, big maps, great architecture, slaughterwad.
- Elf Gets Pissed: 1 episode (iirc), medium size maps, great combat.
- 20 HCC: around 15 maps or so, custom enemies, medium difficulty, thematically varied.
- Thief - The Arch-Heretic: 1 map, great level design, medium difficulty.
- Unbeliever: 3 episodes (iirc), puzzle focused level design, clever combat.

- For Chex:
- That unofficial 3rd episode made by one of the OG developers. It's awesome.

Hexen, no idea, I've only seen gameplay mods for it. Strife has like 2 or 3 custom maps projects, and one was recently remastered (Low on Ice), but never checked them out (great game, tho). And for Hacx... I really doubt anyone has ever made levels for that one lol

You can also try Ashes 2063 and Ashes Afterglow. Both are standalone games built on gzdoom engine without any relation to doom/heretic/hexen/strife.
