About This File

A rather LARGE level with some nifty tricks & traps scattered through out. I tried to keep a theme through out the level, it may sometimes wander but I feel overall I did a good job of it.

One of those '94 wads that promises a challenge but ends up easy due to infighting and a lot of ammo. Most of the level is punching spectres in dark STARTAN hallways. You can get stuck and a lot of areas are pointless and ugly. Eventually I got bored 20 minutes in and rageclipped to find the yellow key. It was in a secret. 2/5

It took me 30 minutes to beat. The yellow key is not needed, the yellow-exit door opens with the red key.

Very interesting in places, but also very uneven and way too enormous. 3/5 --Woolie

      This is the first non-Euclidean doom wad I've ever seen! And it's done right! That must've been some project. Well done.

      *** PLUTONIA 3 - GOING TO THE SURFACE Review ***   I usually start off my reviews with "The Bad," followed by "The Good." This one is going to have "The Ugly." Ready?   The Good:   - Not a thing.   The Bad:   - Everything. For a more detailed reason, see TurrboAnklet's and/or GuyNamedErick's review (both below). I agree with 110% of every word written in both.   The Ugly:   - Duke Nukem music? Really?!?!?! - BFG9000 in second level. And enough plasma cells to virtually destroy the universe including any parallel ones.   **************************************************************************   In Short: I saw the PLUTONIA name, and I got fairly excited to play it. But, that's the gimmick here, isn't it? Reel you in with the name and then you open Pandora's Box. Freeware or not.   I played a few levels from start, then I IDCLEV'ed to a couple teen-numbered levels, then to mid- to later-twenty numbered levels to see if there was hope in the future for any chance of fun. Nope. It's as much fun as eating a generic-branded box of Mac & Cheese - with the box missing the cheese.   I am required to give this WAD at least 1 star else I can't post a review. So, for that reason ONLY, this "WAD" gets a star. There is no freaking way this took 3 years to build. I would believe it more, if it were 3 minutes. This clusterf*ck not only tarnishes the great PLUTONIA name, it insults the entire DooM universe.   Soooo not recommended. 0 out 5 stars.

      Gameplay is just okay, nothing especially interesting. But the level's theme and textures are pretty damn funny. Everywhere you look there's another little joke. It's worth playing just for amusement. I don't know what the hell these commenters are talking about regarding a "creepy atmosphere", IMO you'd have to be a pretty big weenie to get scared by a Doom level full of joke textures just because its a little dark...

      Very cool level. The way you have to use your fist & pistol in the beginning enhances the feeling of being trapped & powerless and having to escape. The visuals are very nicely-done, with lots of little details & cool ideas. The atmosphere is quite spooky, reminding me of the dungeon segments of the later Unloved. It is indeed linear, but it's still an interesting journey and the gameplay is fair & fun.

      Nice layout. There are actually some challenging moments with monsters attacking from every direction, especially if you try to rush it. The visuals are basic but stylish and might remind you of early Grain of Salt levels (see Green Goddess).
