Fairly fun map albeit a little plain. The outdoors are big and open and the pillar-hopping is frequent.

It's surprising to find a level this old with a consistent theme, even if it over-uses the brown textures. This is quality stuff, with some good ideas like the "bridges" in the end and with some problems, too. It is not really a challenge nowadays except if you play it with your little finger alone. I related all of its problems to its age, and rated it at a 4.

I liked it - some areas seem like they should've been secrets (there are no secrets)

This is dated September 1994. It's an early Doom II level that pits you against 44 baddies; the textures are brown throughout and it really only has four rooms (the start, a slightly puzzly warehouse, a cathedral, and outdoors) but it's not bad. The gameplay is short and sweet the outdoors section has some interesting runny-jumpy bridge bits that loosely resemble a Yes album cover. Easy as cake though.

An excellent pwad by mid-1994 standards, though it's a little dull today. I really liked the outdoor bridges. 4/5

      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).
