About This File

A pure action level. The Joke is that the only ammo you'll find is the one that dead monsters drop. It's my level #22

Story: The habitants of a small city on an asteroid became crazy and start to eat each other. Before they get you, you must find the hangar and get out of Telex.

Good clean fun, basically a shooting fest with mostly hitscan monsters = lots of infighting = fun. You get some health at the start and none thereafter, and the only ammo and weapons come from vanquished enemies, which is a clever concept and works well (it encourages you to be a good shot). Not much replay value once you learn the waves but I liked it a lot.

More or less average, though still nice. The outside looked a little bit less jumbled together than most city maps you see, and the insides were alright too. The monster placement was pretty average, but it was nice that the map wasn't totally linear (though most city maps aren't). Good work, keep it up! 3/5 -Tango

A quite good city map with nice textures and design. Made me search through the exit for some time though. 4/5 - Optimus

      Это вообще хороший мегавад. Есть некоторые мапс , которые плохи как 03, 17, 31 и 19, и другие, которые очень хороши как 10, 11, 21, 28, 29 и некоторые другие. Это стоит скачать.

      Long, grindy, and generally low-threat slaughter. Combat choreography is largely absent and the majority of the map is occupied by clusters of the same monster blocking your path. Speaking of blocking, monster block lines are often employed in strange ways, allowing the player to door and hallway camp the enemy hordes. Potentially deadly traps are neutered by frequent invul spheres which enable trivial BFG facerolling. Detailing ain't too hot either, with the majority consisting of monotextured square rooms and hallways. Some cool sector work is present among the minimalism and the scale of the final area is certainly impressive (the 300+ Cacos which take years to float into firing range, less so). If you want to spend over an hour spamming BFG and rockets, I suggest you play (or replay) Cybersky instead by the same author - it looks and plays better. 2/5

      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.
