Review by Colin Phipps

screenshot Spooky02 is an Ultimate Doom style level, for Ultimate Doom of course. It's not a bad looking level, dark and spooky as the name promises, with good use of textures for decoration. The level sticks excellently to a style, with computer termials, decorative things and acid ponds.

You have to fight the level mostly with shotgun and chaingun, so you certainly get to appreciate the Doom 1 feel of the level. Monster placement is good, often you find yourself having to keep an eye out behind you, or with monsters coming from all sides. The level is not particularly hard though, the fights are all very fair, and there isn't much in the way of traps. Still there are some very good fights; I hopr you're in form with that single shotgun!

For people who like the old Doom style, you'll hardly need me to recommend this one. It's a quality level in the old style, and gives a good game. What more could you want?

Parts of the level work for coop play, other areas were a bit awkward for 2 people at once. At UV it was a bit too tough for coop to be fun. Still fairly good though.
