About This File

Stardate 20X6 is a set of 8 boom-compatible levels that are all about the color purple. I couldn't think of a wad that extensively used the color so I decided to spend some time and completely overdose on it. The levels meander through underground and space-station themes, and are filled with all sorts of abstract violet goodness. Much of the gameplay resembles the arena style typically found in slaughtermaps, but the monster counts (in general) aren't overwhelmingly high. The maps are very difficult, with UV hopefully presenting a worthy challenge even for veteran doomers. HMP is also implemented, and is intended for casual playthroughs.

Well, the visuals are very nice, but the gameplay is based on pure luck. I don't imagine beating this without massive save game reloads. Even on easiest difficulty. And this is horrible...

Beautiful levels with nice music, and certainly beatable on UV if you figure the strategy behind each room. The people that complain about difficulty are probably used to beating every level on the first try on UV or something, can't quite figure why else they'd be complaining.

Whether you like this or not will largely depend on how much "incidental" vs. "setpiece" you like in a map. Stardate has setpiece battles where monsters either pop-in, teleport in, or come from closets, and stretches of doing nothing but wandering- the overall style actually reminds me a lot of a harder Painkiller, built in Doom. If that sounds appealing, you will like this. I personally prefer maps that lean more towards the "incidental combat" side of the spectrum, so the stop-and-go pacing left me dry.

A good wad with an original look, feel and gameplay. Difficulty is one of the hardest I've ever played on UV, though who plays a set piece slaughter wad on anything else? This gets 3 stars because its simply too difficult to hold the vast majority of doomers attention. Play this if you've finished combat shock and sunder and want more.

Starts out purple and ends up... purple. It's well designed, but the monsters tend to show up through "surprise" ways": walls opening, teleporting, hidden doors, etc. You start to expect it. I wish designers were more judicious with that feature; then I wouldn't realize every single empty room/hallway is gonna fill up with enemies. 4* - SirSpoon

Great wad mixing slaughter gameplay with the smaller, more cramped death destiny style leading to very vicious gameplay. I wish there was more purple in these maps as this wad is overwhelmed with brown and grey texturing which give a certain style which differentiates from the wads overall goal apart from the gameplay which it does achieve. 4 stars

Fantastic mix of small, tough fights, cool setpieces, and slaughter arenas with a great if maybe overly contrasting set of visual themes. Lots of thought in the gameplay here, UV will thrash you if you choose it for your first playthrough. hey big robb, dial down the difficulty level scrublord

Lots of stock content in the WAD, some of which has slight palette remapping for a couple extra purple pixels. Really, take away the purple and you have some well designed but uninspired brown and grey techbases, brown caves, and brown wood/metal maps. This becomes apparent after the novelty of the purple textures wears off, which is quite soon.

It's pretty good maps and good fun. However, if your PC can't handle the graphic rendering, then prepare to grade it lower. ~3/5
