About This File

I made this level a few months ago but never released it. Its short, simple, but fairly hard. I pretty much used this level to teach myself ACS.

One bitch of a map

This is a very short map, but it's very atmospheric. A lot of earthquake that changes the lava ambience and some nice lighting effects make this a really hellish map. Gameplay is not bad, but not too interesting either. In general, it consists of 3 "waves" of monsters. The first two are easy, the third is harder but can be solved with running around and provoking infight. Shame. 3.5/5 -Milian

Nice effects, but otherwise a pretty stupid level. I didn't have any "fun". 2/5

It was cool, but I thought the shaking was annoying.

Gameplay sucks, but that's pretty much expected when you load a ZDoom wad that makes heavy use of ZDoom features. Terrible music that makes you want to rip your ears out. What's more important is the concept was decently executed most of the time (a bit overdone with the earthquakes near the end). 4/5

Just bashing masses of high level monsters and very short. For what do i collect the keys when there are no doors to use them? Nice overall idea with all the level manipulating, but far away from more than 3 stars.

This map is "horrible" it "is the worst map i ever played." I am being sarcastic. This is one of the BEST maps i've ever played. 4 STARS!?!? c'mon! This map kicks ass! 5/5 - Jake Stevens

5/5 I like this level. Maybe because it has a different feel or maybe because its short. Not every level out there has to be some epic 10 hour map. -shtbag667

Very fun, if a bit short. I didn't even bother to fight the Spider Mastermind. Overall, four stars - Kochipahk

Nice enough idea, and pretty well executed. But it's too short. I'd like to see some authors use these effects in a larger level 3/5

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.
