Deus Vult is a four-level PWAD for limit removing source ports created by Huy "Doom Marine" Pham and released on May 28, 2004. A bonus fifth level contains all previous four combined as a single map. The WAD has a reputation of being extremely hard, in the slaughter style of Hell Revealed, but with more detailed levels. It was a named a runner-up in the first Cacowards.

A sequel, Deus Vult II, was released in 2008.


Deus Vult is a highly modified version of 1SQUARES.WAD by Costa Lappas. Most battles take place in makeshift "arenas" with cliffs, teleporters or hallways separating each area. This is also true of 1SQUARES.WAD, with doors being the "separators" between rooms. The first battles feature monsters at the player's eye level, with increasing height differences as the player progresses, as well as the areas and monster counts growing ever larger with each wave.
