This is a combination of Ritenour's early space levels, his Phobos wad, and a few new faces. It's also one of my chief inspirations. The ambience and little tricks all throughout make you feel like you're in a 60's sci-fi-novel adventure. Unfortunately the monster-placement gets pretty random so the gameplay doesn't always match, but the settings make it more than worth it.

Plays like ass but worth running around in to check out Ritenour's trademark visual trickery.

That's l33t, best spaceship maps ever, you can look through the window and see a glowing engines and gun turrets (sprite based, but made so well that they look 3d, faux light sourcing enchances this feeling). Loads of atmosphere. Great usage of silent teleporters (cool spiral staircases). However, there are few glitches playing on 2.0.96 - sky is b0rked and looks like mess, and silent teleporter in first phobos level is also b0rked. And again, why nazis in space? Still 5/5 -- Brun Ohn

XWEed the MAPINFO to make it happy with r1510 of GZDoom. Played Earth and Phobos previously but these new maps and reworks are incredible. My jaw dropped when I saw the glowing engines. And the lighting! Cutscenes after nearly every level lead to an unusually rich story for a Doom pack, music sounds great with soundfonts or via OPL. You get a cool ship, too. Solid fun with vanilla gameplay and ungodly intense with Brutal Doom b17. Why didn't this thing make the Top 100 all those years ago? (5/5)

NOTE: There are compatibility issues with newer ZDoom versions and the MAPINFO. You'll need to use SLUMPed or XWE to remove the ".mus" at the end of every song in the MAPINFO lump. Aside from that, 5/5

This WAD is one of the most unique WADs I've played so far. I love how everything is built up and how much thought the author put into making it/everything work. After 4 years I still remember most of the maps. There are not too many monsters either, but still enough to make it fairly difficult! Well done

      I had raised my eyebrows when I read everything in the text file, but I really enjoyed this! It's totally adorable, all the assets were obviously hand-made with love, and the puppy is wonderful :) Just wish it was longer! I hope you do some more with this, it's definitely a welcome break. Maybe add some menu assets to really sell the idea.

      Nice details and visuals. Maybe bitt claustrophobic but that's not weakness at all and i kinda like it. Gameplay is what ruining the map. For six months of work the gameplay feel very unbalanced and bad. Lot of stronger enemies appear on a place where you can't move properly.

      The visuals of the map is rich in details, but they look somewhat erratic and do not form a solid style. Although, some of the author's decisions looks new for me. If you be careful enough, then this map may well bring positive impressions of the gameplay. Lock a player in a narrow space with strong opponents is controversial idea, but an experienced player can get good trial from fights by finding a winning strategy. In general, the map does not leave the desire to go through it again. I recommend this map for seekers of hard and challengind gameplay.

      Just a cool ZDoom map with well balanced gameplay. I was run through it with pleasure.

      I must say that although it is a wad of terry, I would like to find a serious one like this, new enemies very interesting and original just for their attacks, bosses that have inspired me (and you can see it in my creations) and it is really amazing like this wad despite having their terry traps is entertaining and much better than many wads of 32 levels, if you want to have something interesting to play and different as long as you ignore the story is fun filled with very good boss fights, excellent music, this is an option although if you can not stand the terry traps just do not try it   5/5 to be a joke wad   Gaia74
