Congestion Control 2

Congestion Control 2 is a single-player level for Doom II.  Like it's predecessor, Congestion Control, it features fast paced gameplay and an interesting layout.  And, like the original, this one also has a unique, good looking visual style (but different from the original!).

Congestion Control 2 was released on my 21st birthday, 15 May 2003.


3 June 2003: Brad Spencer sent me a first-try demo of the level, with some nice comments.  Thanks, Brad!

Reviews and Comments

1 June 2003: Ismaele has posted his review of Congestion Control 2 at his site, Outpost of Doom II.  He has also put up two screenshots showing an unusual occurrence in this level: two archviles fighting against each other!

19 May 2003: Doomworld's 129th edition of The /newstuff Chronicles was posted.  The reviews were done by Daniel "Tormentor667" Gimmer.  This is the review he gave CCT2:

"It was really a pleasure for me to play this second part of the Congestion Control series - twice. The map design is absolutely amazing and took my breath away and the Final Doom midis fit this outstanding environment perfectly. Although the textures seem to be chosen randomly for a newbie doom eye at the screenshots on Karthik's page, the complete setting of this map looks great if you are really into it and play the masterpiece of work. The ammo balance is great and the monsters have been placed very well and... heh, I don't have to say much more, just play the wad if you don't want to miss a great Doom achievement."

15 May 2003: Several comments at the Doomworld Forums, here.

17 May 2003: This level has also been reviewed on the Doom Wad Station, here (by Eric Buck) and also here (by Kak Home).

15 May 2003: Ismaele was the first to do a review of this level!!  I really couldn't believe it when I saw his email on 16th - apparently he had written his review just a few hours after I'd uploaded the WAD!

Uh... outside the UAC base!

Congestion Control 2 Story

Read the Congestion Control 2 Story

I wanted to do something different with this level, so there is no text story - instead, there's an illustrated version.  It's in the format of a one page comic, and it sets the scene for the level to take place.  Click the graphic above to see the story (drawn by me).  The larger sized drawing is available on my Drawings page.  The CCT2 story is also distributed with the level.

Howdy! I know this is kind of off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site?
I'm getting sick and tired of Wordpress because I've had issues with hackers and I'm looking at alternatives for another platform.
I would be awesome if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

Why users still use to read news papers when in this technological world everything
is existing on web?
