E1M8, Phobos Anomaly Revisited

About This File

This is my way of seing the map 8 of the first episode of Ultimate doom, phobos anomaly. This level, like you've guessed, replaces the e1m8 of ultimate doom and features monsters from the realm667 site, textures from various sources(some from kdizd,zpack and alot from the nb5d1.wad), scripting, etc...

Lol, I actually replayed this recently... I guess I shouldn't have ^^" As a result, I decided to start it from scratch and implement what I've learned over my experience in doom making. No release window yet as I only did like one room lol

I agree with the failure comment. The start is blatantly copied off Thunderpeak. The rest is the few E1M8 rooms connected by featureless hallways and a bunch of tedious Baron battles in empty rooms. Play this if all you can do is circlestrafe. 0/5

Great detail, shitty ending, but 4/5 for detail

To me this felt like a modern, Knee Deep in ZDoom interpretation of E1M8, which is cool. I didn't really see how the author copied Thunderpeak, but I will agree that several of the battles were long and tedious. The difficulty was marginal and I never even had to save or load. The layouts were well thought out except for some backtracking that detracted from my experience a bit. Overall I'd say 4.5/5. Hope to see more from you!

I highly enjoyed this. The original "Phobos Anomaly" is one of my all-time favorite classic Doom maps, and I love the song "Sign of Evil." I usually don't like it when people try to remake this classic map, but you did really good. I loved the HQ graphics and updated tech look. It looked like a somewhat modern take on the original map. I liked the dramatic lighting effects--very creepy and gothic--and I found that most of the rooms, save for two, were excellently designed. Good work!

First of all, it has nothing to do with e1m8. Secondly, copying Thunderpeak, even partially, is not a good idea. 3 stars for effort.

It's not bad because it's a Thunderpeak ripoff. It's bad because that manages to be its most redeeming aspect. Cramped, ugly, not fun, badly laid out, and with no original thought.

Another failure in the sea of E1MX replacements.

Lots of architecture, textures, and detailing ripped off from Thunderpeak, and pretty much no other redeeming qualities. It's cramped, ugly, the theming is random, and the layout is a mess. If you like what you see in this, just get Vader's "Thunderpeak" and play that instead; anything remotely worthwhile in this WAD was taken from there.

It's a KDIZD + Thunderpeak style map with some flaws but I can't see any reasons for 0/5 or say it's a failure. The shitload of shotgun boxes is not a good idea, and when you only killing about 20-30 imps and 2 cacodemons with those boxes, what a "overkilling" and waste in ZDooM map(I'm playing in UV). :p Yeah, it's not so good but a so-so map with good looking/detailing. Needed some works about ammo balance and monsters replacement. 3/5 -playerlin

Way too easy/too few monsters.

Looks pretty, but way too easy. The switches of unlimited rockets and bullets in the final room worsened that. An amazing quantity of particle effects! You should rename this PARTICULATE ANOMALY, THE RECKONING or something.

Pretty fun. The beginning was rough, but difficulty smooths out later.

Looks good/detailed, nice layout, but gameplay is rather dull. There aren't any surprises, too much ammo(with saw/berserk near start and less ammo it'd be more interesting). The end battle is more tedious than exciting, there's too much room. It'd be interesting to see the custom barons with tracking missiles - with that much space, and/or more spawning of other monsters (aka HR clusterfuck). Should have stayed with fast monsters, but the custom imps kicked my ass at start so I got scared. 4*

It's really just a very cheap rip of Thunderpeak. Avoid.

Much better than the t/nc review makes it out to be (and some of the previous reviews here, too). It's a nice level, fun and entertaining; not without flaws, and parts show that the author is not an experienced mapper yet, but hey - it's still good! To the author: keep it up.

This is like a cheap take on Thunderpeak. It might actually be decent if there were more monsters and a better challenge. As it is, fine to look at, not fun to play.

Really awesome level. The beginning is rough, but overall the gameplay is well rounded.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
