Ultra-Violence Demos

One day, George Bell wrote a note to TeamTNT.

That was his first mistake.

As discussions went on, he decided that he'd try to do Ultra-Violence demos of all the levels in Icarus: Alien Vanguard.

Well, he did it. The rules were:

  1. Start with a pistol
  2. Get 100% kills
  3. Get 100% secrets

Some levels you can't do #3. Not George's fault, our fault. There is a secret too skinny to fit a Space Marine butt into, and one that you can't get to in single player mode. OK, we'll give him those as documented problems.

Right up to the end, even George couldn't do MAP28 (Excavations) and get 100% kills. And every monster is accessible. Problem is, there's not much ammo to spare. Like none. George went into god mode, went right up to every monster point-blank and shot 'em. Had 5 shells left when he got done. So it's pretty impressive to watch that one when he did it without godmode and ended up empty-handed at the exit.

You can download George's demos by clicking here. Get the associated text file here.

The files are separate .LMP files, one for each level, all contained in a single ZIP file. Unpack them into your DOOM2 directory, and run them like this (the example is for the MAP15 demo):


Uppercase isn't important, and be sure not to include the ".LMP" on the end of the demo filename. Sorry, but DOOM2 won't run them if they're not in the DOOM2 directory.


  1. Demos are for version 1.9 of DOOM2. If you have version 1.666 or 1.7a, you'll need to convert the demo (or, preferably, upgrade your DOOM version) to see them.
  2. Notes that George made about the levels as he played them are in the table below, including some ratings.
  3. George's opinions might not be shared by the authors of the levels....heh.
