The main features of the mod includes a skill, experience, and stat system, a menu system with an appearance similar to The Ultimate Doomer's Serpent Resurrection menu system, Monsters that become slightly stronger as you level up, a new HUD, and an alchemy system (Credits to Worst).
There is also more. There are two new classes added to the mix, new monsters (select few doom and heretic monsters gain special abilities), new armor system and two new weapons for the classic classes, new particle effects, accessory system, and more. Not only that, but there is also Cooperative support so you can play alongside your friends. (Requires compat_clientssendfullbuttoninfo to be TRUE).
