About This File

So you beat the demons on Phobos, Deimos, Earth, and even in Hell itself. But the UAC's operations have finally been stopped. The weapons research the corporation did left a lot of radioactive waste as byproducts, and the UAC set up waste facilities to dump the stuff. All of these facilities were believed to have been shut down, but the last, UAC Waste Facility #253, is on Earth's own Moon. After you defeated hell the final time, they retreated back to the Moon, where a small outpost has been made out of the facility.

But you're on vacation now. Nobody knows your name, nobody recognizes you. Which was good. You were expecting to be famous after your many battles, but you're glad it didn't happen. You're taking a little reprieve on the moon, but before you got there you had no idea of the final Waste Facility.

You step out of the ship with the other tourists and onto the Moon's surface. The tour guide herds everybody away from the looming building imprinted with the UAC logo. The tour guide's perky voice picks up and your thoughts drown her out. A low growl interrupts you and your hand flies to the butt of your faithful pistol. Damn! One of those brown bastards from hell! Your vacation hasn't dulled your reflexes, so you whip out your marine-issue pistol and shoot the imp until the magazine runs dry and the slide locks. Two more imps have already killed the rest of the tourists, but you whip out another magazine, reload, and blast them into gory lumps of mush.

The Facility must have become a demonic outpost. You have to exterminate the hellspawn before they can plan some sort of attack on Earth. Time to go back into action, one last time. You take a deep breath and take the teleporter into the UAC Waste Facility....

Some nice details and rooms, but annoying, really annoying, no ammo, not much protection from acid, searching around and going into a pit with no platform/teleport to exit. Not a good play..

I enjoyed this map. I'd like to have given it a higher rating than a 3, but personally I'm not big on nukage pit cheapness.. Also, it could have stood a bit more length and difficulty balance (could have been much harder later on). Not bad at all for a first release, though.

"Ugly zdbsp texture misalignments": Not in Risen3D and GZDoom. The Z-clipping stuff is odd...that usually doesn't happen. It's meant to have the hellknight appear right in front of the player, not under/behind the player. "and areas that the player can get stuck": Where? Anyway, thanks for all the "constructive criticism". *rolls eyes*

Boring and linear, uneven detailing makes it seem like a collection of random rooms. Very easy, too short to be satisfying (didn't even last 3 minutes). 2/5 - Belial

Not a bad first effort, but it contains some major bugs and glitches. The author was made aware of these but for some reason has not fixed them. Ugly zdbsp texture misalignments, some bizarre ways to have monsters appear behind the player (relying on z-clipping), and areas that the player can get stuck make this a very skippable wad.

These bugs afflict the wad even in some of the recommended ports, and could easily have been fixed.

      Frankly, if you're looking for more Plutonia, this isn't the deal. It's very different, but it's still very good in every aspect. I'd recommend it not for having the Plutonia name in its title, but for being such a good wad in itself.   Being that this was made by a lot of people™, it'd be impossible to talk about how each map performed, but they all pretty much draw resemblance to each other, while also possessing some of the designers' unique quirks visibly into them. Nothing's perfect, so there's a handful of levels that either aren't made for most people or straight up suck (like MAP15, and, arguably, 25).   Every level is challenging, even more so than the original Plutonia ones, though it still possesses Plutonia's design of combat of placing the player between a rock and a hard place in nearly every area, sometimes executed poorly, like trial and error, which can feel unfair.     Visibly beautiful and playfully slaughterful, fitting with its great soundtrack.

      Pagan's Run is a lengthy "Run From It"-style map. "It" isn't the silent curse of that infamous Scythe map, however, but rather lethal threats located in the map itself. Caged cyberdemons pump rockets into your butt, and pesky fodder loiters in your path, which once in a blue moon is flattened by a crusher or narrowed into a Chasm-like sliver. Most of the tests over the 2.5-minute trial are fundamentally similar, testing consistency through repetition, but they evolve and morph into different forms: At first you're shooing zombies with shotgun blasts, soon you're navigating barrel clusters with spiders trying to show you love, by the end you're cleaving through greeting mobs with plasma, cybies looking on.    At best, I found Pagan's Run exciting and inventive, and I love movement test maps. But implementation flaws were too common -- potential linedef skips, floors with a fluky chance of not rising if blocked by a monster, and a late unguided drop seemingly designed for freelook. The latter hurts FDA value even on lower difficulties. On UV early, hitscan RNG was disproportionately impactful even with perfect shots. HNTR and HMP seem better.

      This one is fascinating. It's a squiggly techbase full of wacky oldschool angles drawn off-grid. The design has a lawless '90s vibe of "appealing ugliness," but with a higher detail level that befits its actual release date (the current Doomworld Files screenshot doesn't reflect this). The mapper clearly had an education in craft, shown by skillfully intricate use of the sky horizon trick and other effects. It reminded me of Didy's mapping in a few places.   Runtime was unexpectedly short, under 15 minutes for me. Many of the 200-odd monsters appear in messy but satisfying brawls, using lots of low-tiers with bulkier stuff tossed in for emphasis. The balance is very lenient and favors near-total dominance of the SSG, once you are equipped with it. Power weapons exist but are provisioned stingily.

      - Above average and interesting map design! - All maps keep the theme of the episode, thus constant. I can remember every unique map. New custom textures were used in all maps, which resulted in a beautiful look throughout the whole megawad. A few maps are just empty, because they were designed to get you out of their stations connect the levels as a hub area, giving you an interesting experience with progression. - Designer had a great idea to finish the wad in MAP25, which is phenomenal under vanilla limitations. - Above average gameplay. Trying to create a great gameplay experience, the designer put A LOT of interesting, but challenging encounters. - Such a memorable ending. Seriously, just download this wad and check it out for yourself.

      - Below average and boring map design! - All maps looks similar to each other, thus boring, I can't remember any distinct map. Same textures are used in all maps which resulted in a boring look after playing a couple of maps. Many maps are just empty, no monsters no anything, just head to the exit. - Designer ran out of ideas and stopped at map 25, didn't finish the rest. - Below average gameplay, Trying to create a gameplay experience the designer resorted to traps, and A LOT of them, many of them are really deadly. - Anticlimactic end, Designer will kill you and throw you into the deep ocean :(
