killer design, gameplay is fun at times but offers a lot of backtracking.

Q2 style visuals, absolutely illogical "run from one switch to another" gameplay and very poor monster fighting

Excellent architecture and visuals. The game play was not so hot however. Constant back-tracking and switch hunting ruins the pace -- in fact it got downright dull and frustrating. What was really irritating were that the switches were colored grey and on grey walls, took me a long time to find the first one. Enemy placement doesn't really make use of the excellent architecture. In fact, nothing particularly interesting about the combat in the map in general. Looks super good, but no fun.

the design, architecture, and graphics were great, but the framerate was a little slow so people with slow computers might want to stay away from this one. the invisible imps were a pain, and the game crashed while trying to save at one point, thus erasing the rest of my saves(seemed odd though). overall, meh. 2.5/5

Much better than Valhalla, although the fighting is still pretty hard. Ignore cybermind, they don't know what they're talking about.

My new favorite techbase. Seriously one of the best maps for gzdoom ever.

No. Fitting. Words. The fact that as I see, tons of resources for your maps are made by yourself, makes it even more outstanding.

Wow! What amazing design this level has. Dark, atmospheric, excellent gameplay and well balanced ammo and health placement. What more could you ask for? Definately the full 5/5 from me. -TRRobin.

Unbelievable. No wad I've played has come close to the immersion, anxiety and fun I had playing this. Not the classics from the 90s or the modern wad offerings from various doom forums. Everything about Putrefier is mind altering. The visuals, the level design, and the eerie barely-there music come together to create an experience that even modern video games from both indie devs and big studios alike haven't given me. An easy 5 out of 5

This has to be the worst map I have ever played!!! Not much to look at either. The author should be ashamed at his lack of attention to detail! -Bizzaro Superman.

One of the best looking maps ever but this was the only level that has slowed my computer. To put into perspective, I lag less fighting 3500 enemies on combat shock 2 than I do walking around this level with 150.

I have a i7 dual core processor, and a 8gb graphics card. I can play Crysis 2 and Skyrim on ultra-high quality with a solid 60fps. I cannot play this at all. A biased 1/5 for me, sorry.

Extremely good level design. Gameplay is fun as well. But there are still some flaws. That generator boss fight was horribly annoying. So 4 stars rather then 5 makes sense to me. ****

      Totally playable and good looking even today. Be wary that there are time-based switch puzzles here that must be solved in order to progress. MAP28 is also a nightmarish switch hunt in an open, Doom 2 Downtown-like area.

      EDIT: It appears Tag 666 doesn't execute properly in some source ports or if complevel is below 3.   Let me get E1M8 out of the way first because it's the most confusing thing I've witnessed in a Doom wad. So, you got four switches that kill four barons outside of the map, to make two walls & four marble cubes lower. Basically, a special tag 666 situation. I press all four switches & nothing happens after I wait for awhile. I tried with PrBoom 2.5.1.4., PrBoom 2.5.1.5., GzDoom 2.4.0 & on the latter, only worked once. I looked up the walkthrough of it & there is nothing I did different from the people playing it but they got it to work somehow. It's very strange. If anyone knows what's up, I'd like to know.   The rest of the wad is alright. Maps are way too lengthy and forgettable & just cluttered with too many enemies. Traps are fairly challenging & were the best part of the wad.   But all that wasn't worth it for the last map of the wad to crap on me.   Totally not worth a Cacoward 2011.

      All the maps are above average, but this is Legendary wad because of Ty and Map10, which is true masterpiece of art. 5/5

      And thus, Stardate 20x6 is finished.   Stardate 20x6 is a 8-level wad consisting of challenging levels with enemy placements and encounters in the vein of slaughter, with an actual slaughter level featuring 1000 enemies at the end.   The wad is centered around the color purple. This means that a number of textures and effects have been replaced and purple plays a major role in creating the mood and atmosphere of the levels, but isn't overused so that it becomes an annoyance. Besides a new set of textures it also features a new soundtrack similar to the one heard in Sunlust, but with a slightly more emphasis on the atmosphere rather than epicness while still very much keeping you and the action going (Sunlust did include a few "battle" songs which were used in a few levels, and in another megawad as well, I think), a new menu background, and intermission screen. It does not feature new enemies, weapons, or sounds.   Considering these levels have been created by Ribbiks, there are many similarities in terms of gameplay and design with Sunlust. One of the easiest similarities that is immediately noticed is the enemies who are in plain sight in a couple of levels are in a sleeping/unalerted state with their backs to the player. As I assumed in the case of Sunlust, it was likely done in order to allow the player to observe his environment and create a strategy of sorts before jumping into the action. The difficulty is also designed the same way, with UV being reserved for veterans and highly skilled players, while everything else is for less than stellar players. I have completed Stardate on HMP.   The maps are solid, combining challenging gameplay with good architecture and atmosphere, and also include a few ingenious traps which are less cruel than what could be seen in MAP29 of Sunlust (or should I say the Arch-Vile room instead?). The action takes place mostly on various space bases and every now and then a breathtaking sight might catch your attention when you find yourself outside. My favorite level is going to be MAP03, and the trap with a Cyberdemon on one end and Revenants on the opposite was damn fun. It might look threatening at first, but really, all that needs to be done is avoiding potential damage caused by their infighting and taking care of the incoming waves of Imps and Hell Knights until they're done slaughtering each other. As about design flaws, there are some dark rooms in certain levels where it's pretty difficult to navigate. The enemies are always visible so the problem is not that you don't know where you're taking damage from, but rather the room itself because it's so dark it's difficult to see what's in front of you sometimes. I did manage to hurt myself with the RL as well as get killed by a Cyberdemon because I accidentally ran into a wall. I would not advise using that weapon in these rooms. Use the Chaingun, SSG, or Plasma Gun instead, and always be aware of your environment. It's always good to rely on the environment as much as possible to make things more interesting and challenging, after all, many of the later levels also include some really tricky platforming sections, but the use of lighting could be more efficient. For this reason I would definitely not advise using the Software of your port of choice either.   The final level, as previously mentioned, is once again a slaughter map with a couple of nasty but highly creative enemy placements. Ever seen pyramid-like structures with Chaingunners on them? Me neither, until now. No Icon of Sin boss, and once everyone's dead you have to destroy a reactor (or, I think it's a reactor anyway) which ends the journey. A great level, but the existence of the said reactor is a bit questionable considering the location. I think it was just fine without it.   And I think that covers everything. It's short and sweet, go check it out, it's worth your time.
