Playing with "Ultimate Simpsons Doom" wad is incredibly fun(and annoying).

Este fue uno de los mods de doom que mas me gustaron :) no sabia que estaba en itch.io.

Muy bueno!!!

What do the big coins do?

They unlock a special level in the garden, not all the coins are required so they're mostly something for 100% completionists.
