This was quite fun but as I got as far as the ice monster I didn't have a clue how to beat it. Voting 4 stars instead of 5 since it's easy to get stuck later on through it without any idea on how to progress any further.

Hopkins must be one of the most creative people to ever open up a Doom editor. This project shows that he's not only mastered basic mapping, but also has a good handle on advanced ZDoom features, scripting, and custom content. Furthermore, the story he tells and the puzzles he presents are every bit as good as AAA adventure titles. Absolutely epic. 5/5 stars, legendary.

I haven't finished it entirely. I did get all the way to the credits, but of course, I didn't complete everything and get the full ending, but i'm working on it. Exploration is great, and there is serious sense of a chievement to EVERYTHING you do, every discovery makes you feel good, when you uncover some secret hidden area. Not to spoil anything, but just before entering the ice area and seeing what surrounds you is a classic moment, and the bosses are clever.

Way too repetitive and too much item hunting.

I was wondering if such an adventure game would be possible with Zdoom scripting engine and now I can see and play it! Riddles are not that hard but it makes you running around searching for objects, big and chaotic but a great exploration world. Sometimes it slows down and gives me the motion sickness but I can understand it's not easy to make it run smooth. Ok,. after a point I tried the walkthrough but that's because of the motion sickness and wanted to finish this gem fast! 5/5 - Optimus

Good sides - Huge nonlinear levels, puzzle-based gameplay, lots of interesting story development and quite hard, but still adjustable combat. At times it felt like an adventure/rpg game rather than a shooter. Bad sidez -too evident lack of ambient sounds, the underwater looks very unnatural (water haze friend..), the rock formations in most cases look too damn sqaure. A bit more slopes would remedy the situation. Nevertheless, a huge effort by the author. 4 stars.

Very very very good. Very imaginative! A welcome change from the usual single doom wads. Could of used more weapons, bigger variety of enemies and maybe a better boss fight. More journal entries would of been appreciated also. However this was a very fun wad to play through, 5/5!

Well, what can I say? The gameplay tends to get boring, but you had me hooked until the end. Both of 'em. The visuals are rather impressive, and all in all, a good game experience, I think. 4/5

This is an example of perfect execution of a good concept. The scripting was amazing, and it had a definitely original feel to it. 5/5 SMG

Everything about this wad is legendary. From detail to gameplay,this wad does it all. My only complaint were the endings. Even the good endings was a bit depressing. Although you saved the world, you still paid a heavy price. The sacrifice you made put you into a vegetative state that you would likely never recover from.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.

      The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.   The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.   I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.
      And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.

      Mostly enjoyable set in vein of "Plutonia but harder" and with larger fights. Visuals are often minimalistic, with combat being the focus of making the maps interesting. Expect plenty of Viles to resurrect what you kill and forced pistol starts on every map. 3/5

      Pretty nice map, some parts are been a little rushed out like the columns texture alignment, but overall the structure and the layout is pretty cool!
