Not the worst episode replacement. That said, not even in the same city as the same ballpark as the best. Y'know, maybe when maps become as interesting as mowing the lawn, maybe you're not doing it right eh?

No, this is not good: contains missing textures causing HOMs, unclosed sectors, no secret map, bad final battle, texture misalignments. A bugfixed/updated version is needed and required. 1.5/5.

This gets a 5/5 from me. What the pitiful "Lost Episodes of Doom" back from 1994 didn't achieve, Khorus did - creating a convincing Jupiter setting. The final map and lack of secrets might be disappointing for some, but the episode is entertaining, atmospheric and well-designed. When E2 (and later hopefully E3) is/are done, it will be a great Doom 1 megawad. Download and play. - NightFright

Brought me back to the feeling of joy I got from playing through Doom for the first time. In a world of source ports and advanced features, it's heartwarming and wonderful to see WADs like this still being released for vanilla Doom. Do NOT pass up a chance to play this -- it's something truly great.

Author has talent but he's lazy as hell because never playtested this wad. 1* because 0.25 secrets per map are stupid. There's also a huge HOM in e1m3 that needs to be fixed asap.

Reviewers above are idiots for using a port that doesn't support vanilla rendering tricks.

Checked in Chocolate Doom, the HOM in the outside area of E1M3 is very visible as well as in (G)ZDoom. Also, you moronic troll, ports that can't render Vanilla tricks, don't remove secrets. 2/5

Not bad. The last map is underwhelming.

One of the best episode sets for Doom that I've played. Beautiful, challenging, and well-designed. ***** -sargebaldy (1-11-10)

Excellent episode, great gameplay and level design. But there are only 2 secrets in the ENTIRE episode and 6 of the maps do not contain a secret at all. And plus there is no lava on Ganymede. Ganymede is mostly Water Ice, so levels 7 and 8 are probably more likely to be set on Io instead. Still a recommended download.

RAGEMAR! Let's calm down. :) Yeah, I found the HOM on M3 after I uploaded. Some people had already recorded some demos, so I didn't want to break them for a visual bug on a minor part of the map. I'll be combining all the episodes with the release of E3, though, so fixes can be introduced there while keeping the old version up at the same time. Secrets are to each his own, not a big part of the gameplay for me so I under use them. E2 should be better there. -Khorus

very good mapset in slightly unusual mapping style (both visual and gameplay). new sky is respectable. f/a demo recording on m5 was fucking epic... mainly because it too dark from start and sparse on ammo :P however, two things makes me sad: only 0.25 secrets per map and gameplay of m8. ****

Really enjoyed playing this - great challenge throughout, excellent oldschool action. Nice to a Doom episode that isn't just an E1 remake too. 5* -Phobus

      For 95' map is really ok. A bit "blocky" design, but not bad. Map is rather big, it takes me 40min but i get lost in one place. Some good traps, IMO kinda challanging at the begining, before you get ssg. Overall good classic wad.

      Fun map that captures a nice TNT-ish feel with plenty of weird yet also nice looking rooms, groups of hitscanners and demons to blast through, and a sense of adventure to it. Taking the MAP14 slot, you would see the episode 2 skybox of TNT: Evilution and listen to the track "Cold Subtleness", both creating a nice atmosphere to the map. Worth checking out!

      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.
