The visual level design here is mostly similar to Plutonia and its unofficial sequels PL2 and PRCP. But it is by no means a gameplay part, since for example the gameplay in the first maps revolves around ammo shortage with not so much opposition (although it was tight in places, I admit), while the latter maps are somewhat reminiscent of slaughterwads with a bunch of ammunition and opponents.

 

The same applies to the size of the maps - the first ones can be completed in 6-7 minutes, while the last ones takes 15-20 minutes to complete. Although this could be explained by a kind of progress, despite the fact that even MAP12 (the first map in wad) is not a walk in the park.

 

I am not opposed to forced pistol-start (maybe even for), but usually if the levels should be completed in this way, they should be better balanced, as the ability to store things from previous levels is discarded.


And again, I repeat as previous speakers - perhaps some arch-viles were even superfluous. This is especially noticeable when you go through the same room several times.

Mostly enjoyable set in vein of "Plutonia but harder" and with larger fights. Visuals are often minimalistic, with combat being the focus of making the maps interesting. Expect plenty of Viles to resurrect what you kill and forced pistol starts on every map. 3/5

Excellent WAD. Difficult, but not insane, apart from one MAP that is just plain unfair...

Not bad at all. Just a little too many Arch-Viles for my liking - but - very well done. Reminds me of a mix of Scythe and Hell Revealed, and in the good aspects. :) Level design was superb, with a good blend of frustrating, but do-able, difficulty. 4-5 K12

I really enjoyed these maps. Very varied themes. Map 17 was very D-D'esque ;)

It starts on Map12 for the sky I'm guessing and these are all very well done speed maps that will satisfy any fans of this author's works. 5 stars.

Why wouldn't you just start at map 1? I don't understand why people do this.

Pretty good overall, but I thought the difficulty was a bit unbalanced and the maps a little cramped, but still a good challenging bit of fun. 4/5. -TRRobin.

Amazing. Plutonium Winds was the most fun I've had with a Doom wad in a very long time. The maps are tough as fuck, but fair, and they're short enough that retries don't become a burden. Visuals are surprisingly good for speedmaps. Encounters are interesting, and the layouts flow like butter. Download this.

      IT JUST WORKS! Ok, with that stupid jojoke out of the way, we can start talking about this map:   It's a nice map from 1995 with some interesting room shapes (especially the one beyond the blue skull key door), the difficult and map flow is pretty easy and straightforward to navigate, don't fell discouraged by the large amount of enemies (it contains 120 monsters in total)! They're just cannon fodder for the majority of the map, expect for the final part with a arch-vile / cyberdemon combo near the exit, overall it could be easily beaten in 10 minutes or even less if you are a talented player... Enjoyable.

      Pretty 90s-ish, basic looking map sets into a tech / hell fortress of sorts, really large map that i've finished in 30 minutes, but luckily the map uses not really hard monsters to confront, making this pretty easy to finish, but again, is a long, LONG map with the most tedious parts are the mazes and that long backtracking stairs... Pretty meh   Also this map crashes on Doom 2 exe (DosBox) when you save the game, so i played it with a limit-removing dos port (doom 2 plus) without any trouble, so if you want to play this you had to use a limit removing port.

      Nice mini episode, reminds me of some sort of amateurish Plutonia Experiment sometimes. Pretty enjoyable!

      A very decent challenge. Took me about half a dozen attempts to crack it on UV. The wad is from 2015, but could just as well have been from around 1997. Solid, traditional classic Dooming.
