Review by Colin Phipps

EUL5BOOM is an updated version of another WAD by the author, EULOGY5. I had not played the original, so I don't know how much the level was changed. As the name implies, it requires BOOM, since it uses a number of effects like deep water and transparent walls.

screenshot The level starts with a couple of good fights against imps and other basic monsters. But then you are given a rocket launcher and over 50 rockets, and things begin to get silly. The level is basically a series of fights against groups of barons, mancubi and archvilles, where you pound away with the rocket launcher & super shotgun. The fights are difficult, but not terribly exciting.

There are some very nasty traps as you get further into the level. Either you dodge the right way, and with luck & dexterity you'll survive; or you dodge the wrong way and die immediately. Good luck...

The level sticks to a theme throughout, but the architecture is neither very detailed or very interesting generally. There are some good places though, like the above screenshot.

Overall, this is not a bad level. People who like this style of fighting will enjoy it, but people who don't will find more interesting levels to play.
