Doom 2 the Way id Did is a 2013 megawad for Doom II containing thirty-three new levels designed to mimic the mapping style of Sandy Petersen, John Romero and American McGee (plus a 33rd level as an Easter egg spoofing Betray). The project was a continuation of Doom the Way id Did. Instead of being themed after Wolfenstein 3D, the two secret levels are themed after Commander Keen. All levels are vanilla-compatible, except for MAP33: Hexsoil, which requires a limit removing source port. The map set received one of the 2013 Cacowards.

Levels[edit]

† MAP08's name is displayed as "Starstruct, Inc" instead of "Quarantine" in the automap, to echo the Circle of Death/'O' of Destruction! situation of the original game.

Soundtrack[edit]

The soundtrack is mostly unmodified from the original, however MAP15 uses "Into Sandy's City" (MAP09's theme) instead of "Running from Evil". MAP31 uses "Make It Tighter" from Commander Keen V: The Armageddon Machine and MAP32 uses "You've Got to Eat Your Vegetables!!" from Commander Keen IV: Secret of the Oracle, both by Bobby Prince. Finally, MAP33 uses the text screen music.

Built-in demos[edit]

This WAD features a full set of built-in demos. All three end with the player's death. All demos require Doom II v1.9 to view them. The demo levels are:
