Though the episode starts of a bit mediocre with its first few maps it really shines near the end with a good amount of detail,fun combat encounters and lots of monsters.Fighting of hordes of monsters in these fruit themed maps was quite fun but the rooms felt a bit cramped at times and you just shoot at enemies from the front sometimes also with all those big encounters at the end more tomes of power would have been really appreciated.It's great overall with just a few problems holding it back.

Good but absolutely not excellent episode - for that the layout of most maps is not good enough, and the overall gameplay is often too simple or even boring. Worth a try, but don't expect the best Heretic episode ever.

The title screams "Jokewad!" but that's not what you'll find here. In fact you'll find an entire episode of nine good levels. Also be sure to check out these guy's other work, the heavily co-opmitized Doom project The Great Bicycle Mystery (2)!

An average episode replacement, the new textures are pretty meh though, and the texture conversion of Heretic is not carried over. (Like the Blue trident switch isn't synonymous for ending the level)

Wow, excellent. Perhaps the best looking Heretic wad I've seen...ever. 5/5 Play this wad now or E1M2 at the very least. E1M8 had a very unique appearance by D'Sparil as well.

Hooray, all that nagging finally paid off...now others can see what I saw in that ZDS months ago - a brand new Heretic episode! Not only that, a pretty damn good one too with some great set-pieces (notably in E1M9).

      With only 7 maps, this WAD delivers excellent quality and at least 1 hour of top notch quality in terms of gameplay, design and presentation. Intense, fast and fun. The challenge it presents is complicated enough to spice it up without being extremely tedious/difficult. It's not easy, but it's not extreme either, and in that balance you find quite a lot of fun. Considering that the WAD is themed on Mars, this is probably one of the best I've seen in terms of adhering to its theme. Great and fantastic. I would like to thank the Cacoawards for introducing me to this beautiful collection of maps that are on my roster of exciting and fantastic WADs.

      It's an enjoyable and decent megawad, nice texture placement, nice level design overall.  My only complain would be a little couple of secrets doesn't have clear hints to find them

      Levels 1 to 4 were great: beautiful, somewhat open maps with lots of exploration, challenge, and smart monster placement which renders a lot of replayability. 9/10 As for levels 5 to 7, their gameplay can be described with 'bite-sized arena fights' as the main loop, and 'mazey nonlinearity' for the layout design, and for me, that's boring. 6/10

      Great megawad that re-imagines Doom 2 how it should have been: With recognizably earth like settings. The maps look generally very realistic with some really good Doom cute furniture and the occasional funny vignette. Gameplay stays classic and imho on the easier side, which is a welcome treat in times of slaughtermaps and too much actual mapping, thus not having enough times to actually play Doom. This is no Sandy Peterson or overly hellish WAD mind you. You do get some hellish hellscapes in later maps, but the majority is earth-like and rather corridor focused. Enemy encounters are on the traditional side as well, with almost nothing standout, except that weird "Warehouse Siege" map that features what felt like 1,000 Archviles. I did not know how to progress there and had to cheat in the end, other than that you can pretty traditional encounters which means a shotgunner around the corner, and a pinky in the sewer, etc.   Even so, the really great design and occasional custom textures make this a standout WAD that traditionalists definitely want to check out.

      This turns the game into a third-person shooter with a fox as the main actor. It also adds cool sound clips.   I give it five stars, because turning the game into a third person shooter by just exchanging the weapon graphics is cool and works very good. It's not that i stay with it for a longer time, but it has my intellectual respect!   Greetings Funduke
