About This File

The background to this level is weird... just like the level itself. I had a dream about a very weird Doom level, and when I woke up I remembered the level almost exactly. I couldn't resist building the thing, and here it is... :) As I said, this is almost exactly like in the dream, but I had to make some changes because of engine limits (no RoR etc), design improvements and input from the testers.

To shreds, you say. Well, how is his sanity holding up? To shreds, you say. Most psychotic map: Discordant music that will make you want to plug your ears, every fucking thing is painful and you're never targeted by fewer than 50 monsters including chaingunners and arch-viles so far away you'll want to call in an airstrike, 4 cyberdemons at close quarters, hoards of teleporting cacodemons. Play if you must but don't blame me if you gnaw your own arm off and lose every shred of compassion and human decency.

Sorry, but I didn't like this wad. I found it to be too detailed and too wide open. I had monsters coming in at me from every angle! It's just not necessary. And the cyberdemons atop each tower? Heh. 3/5

Would be fun but cockblocking flying monsters completely ruined it.

Five stars, superb. Huge and detailed and floats in the air, like a bit impossible thing. Odd music which is reminiscent of Michael Nyman; nasty bit with cacodemons. Expansive views. Works with ZDoom; even goes slow on my ageing 1ghz Duron, probably doesn't work on a 486dx2/66. Five stars. I love you, man.

I'd have to say that you remember your dreams pretty damn well. If your claims are true, then your brain capacity far exceeds mine. That caco maze near the end was pretty tough. =/ Now I gotta beat it with 100% kills. >=) **** - Kochipahk

Hooray for a level with some real expanse in the height dimension. Looks good from any angle. Some fights are hard, but the monsters don't get in the way of you exploring the level. The invisible stairs are fun. 5/5

Now this is odd. It's a castle level, that floats in the sky. It's mid-sized and very detailed, with some clever 3D catwalks and so forth. The layout is a bit samey and symmetrical, but there's lots of action - most of the monsters attack you at once, and you can provoke some wicked fights. Like most dreams it is strange and hyperviolent, with lots of chaingun sniping. The second bit, with the cacodemons, doesn't really work, but overall it's a kind of masterpiece.

To all who say it's too wasy, increase the monster speed, make the monsters respawn, play on nightmare, and shuddap! This is greatly detailed and refined maped, GJ. -Chronoteeth

Given that this is based on a dream and therefore comes from his subconscious, this level gives an insightful look into the mind of the madman who is Fredrik Johansson.

Weird, creative, original and evil. I liked it, although a gameplay was a bit frustrating due to the strange layout. Still, I love surreal levels, so try it if you like weird doom levels. 4 stars. -TeH NeXuS

      If you want something quick, fun, challenging, and a little nostalgic, play this.   Good job, Jimmy.

      If you want something that looks uncomplicated but fair looking, easy but not uninvolved, non-linear but small, somewhat blocky but still good architecture and very quick to beat without ever saving throughout all 9 maps then this is your WAD. I played it, I liked it. Design themes stray towards the original E4, but are not exactly the same.

      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...
