About This File

Planet Phobos brings you a hole Episode of new levels in the classic layout of the Doom-episode "Kneedeep in the Death"

This pwad for DOOM includes 10 maps. Nine of them are stored as episode #1, called 'Planet Phobos'. The tenth map replaces E2M9.

1) CHECKPOINT 2) COMMAND BASE 3) CONTROL SQUARE 4) STORAGE 5) PHOBOS REFINERY 6) PHOBOS ODDITY 7) PRODUKTION PLANT 8) LAST OBSTACLES 9) PHOB'S END Only one tip. Do not enter that red elevator until you got powerful weapons and some ammo for them.

10) LAST PRAYER The former secret mission of 'Planet Phobos' . I moved it to E2M9. So start episode 2 level 9 if you want to play it.

I implented Deathmatch Mode. But notice that this Episode was NOT designed for it. Never the less I guess these missions are not to worse for deathmatch. But it is not a very good idea to play a Coop-game. The hallways and rooms on some levels are so narrow and so small that you would shoot up your friends all the time. That would turn the game in a kind of deathmatch. So why not play deathmatch right from the beginning.

not bad, old-skool feeling, but that last map (E1M8) was a troll with the secret rooms.

Dunno what the whining is about - these are superb. Whatever errors may have been present appear to have been fixed. Runs flawlessly in Doomsday. Going into the "worth a replay" folder.

Inescapable death pits with medikits inside. Misaligned, monotonous textures. Raising platforms made in such a way that you can easily trap yourself by activating invisible linedefs in the "wrong" order. Bland and mostly flat architecture. It's obvious there has been much effort, and if you can look past all these flaws it can be worth playing through, but it would have been so much better with some outside playtesting. The custom intermission screen is rather nice.

Despite some errors and being not very original, it's worth a play for those who like the ol' E1 series look-and-feel. 3/5 as an encouragement.

I think people should play all the way through this before they review it. This wad definitely has a lot of noob errors in it, but for me the author's cool ideas shine through and more than make up for his beginner mistakes. This is his second wad, guys. I really enjoyed this and think the author has a bright future if he decides to stick with it and doesn't get bombarded by negativity, which I see a lot of in this community. -Stormwalker

I agree with the "bombarded by negativity" 3 spaces above. I think this world today is way too negative. This episode is fairly good.... good enjoyable classic gameplay and level design. It has been released before. We don't see enough wads like this, everyone wants detail, hell revealed gameplay. I want more real Doom wads.

^Yes it has been released before, at id=12535 (pho_outp.zip). I'm not even sure this version has any changes, besides the name, but maybe I'm missing something. Anyway not a bad classic style episode.

first wad or one hundred first, bright future or dim obscurity, etc - simply by now this stuff is very unpleasant for playing. **

Not as well done for gameplay as its counterpart (Planet Hell) but it can still be fun, if you are starving for nostalgia or just bored. Both episodes only have okay architecture, so can't really justify more than 3/5 here while PHell gave me enough entertainment for a 4*. Again, though, it looks like a duplicate release, see id=12535! I don't really see why an author would re-release his own work just to change the name, plus you should mention that so the files under the old name are removed.

It feels very cramped. The ceilings need to be taller and your hallways wider. The flow wasn't very good either, good maps get you a key and lead you back to where you need it without backtracking. There was good use of barrels and nice secrets. The flooding level was a very nice gimmick. Its not a total failure. With some work it can be improved to be great.

Looks promising. By the way, Phobos is a moon, not a planet.

      Doesn't like the layout and monster replacements, I didn't found RL until got the yellow key and found a lot of rockets, the location where RL is confusing me, and it also not fun when you get kicked down from the cliffs by Revenants, Mancubus and Archviles after the way to Blue key door, the way to the teleporter just far enough to kill you if not killed by monsters which kicked you down. Final timed puzzle room just nasty as the cyberdemon and archvile fights in the same place, not sure why make the level so big but can't make the fights with them also on bigger place too?   It's not bad level but I'm sure the frustration level is sky high, and not sure the slopes from ZDooM do anything good to this level too.

      Normally, I don't like DooM (1 or UD) WADs because I tired shooting baddies with shotgun as most of them tend put a lot of shotgun guys/ammo and I have shot those full of shotty shit...well, this one can't escaped from that but I found author's tricky as I didn't found many of them(or they placed when I needed to use shotty), also the monster placements(with middle-tier ones) in this megawad helped too, even E1 doesn't suffers low-tier ammo-droping-fest unlike IWAD and most PWADs.   Level layouts and theme are interesting, some E3 levels just a little mazed but I feel okay, never get lost...many levels I feel plays like IWAD but better and larger, you'll found middle-tier monsters in E1 levels and it helps the gameplay, unlike the IWAD you'll have too much ammo in every level even pistol start, if you wasted too much and will out of ammo for sure(at least in UV).   All I can say about this megawad is...fun,  vanilla fun. Except E3M8, the yellow key area with platforming when all enemies + 4 cyberdemons are try to kill me and battles-of-deal-with-4-cyberdemons-or/and-other-powerful-monsters are nasty to me, on top of them, the final "BOSS"...I feel trolled...really? IoS-style?? IT'S ****ING DOOM, NOT DOOM 2 WHY USE IOS-STYLE AS FINAL BOSS?!  :P (At least there is no respawning monster cubes just annoying cyberdemons and barons...but they're still give me a lot of headaches as the battle area isn't very huge and a little cramped I think...)   But at least IDMUS11 helps me dealt with those problems all, for some reasons I feel the main theme of Power Ranger does fit DooM...don't know why but I keep switch to the theme with IDMUS11 cheat if I don't like the level's music, helps me blast through this megawad and the nasty E3M8. :P

      Download the REAL file here (rd1.zip is NOT correct) https://www.doomworld.com/idgames/levels/doom2/megawads/d64d2   Shocked to see so many negative reviews. I had an absolute blast with this one, and I'm not sure what Nems was talking about with the Boom stuff as this runs in Doom2.exe with no trouble. In fact, there is a TON of impressive vanilla stuff going on here. I guess it was so well done that it tricked him.   This deserves a high score. It's a lot of fun.

      It definitely makes Doom look darker, but also slightly changes colors (it reminds me PSX Doom). I prefer original Doom colors and miss how it looked on CRT (almost same colors as with modern monitors, but less brightness and maybe more contrast).

      Great spirit/item placements, and also nice trap placements. Textures are georgeous and scream "1980's sci-fi action movie".
