About This File

So there was Doom. And there were roguelikes. Then there was Doom: the Roguelike. And now, the iconic special levels unique to DoomRL have their own adaptations in ye olde Doom 2 (or Final Doom). Each map also has co-op and deathmatch starts, and deathmatch-only items. See below for a summary of each map, and what's been tweaked in the process of adapting them. If a level's gimmick has you stumped, check there.

ASCII version had better gameplay and VISUALS.

I'm sorry, but these maps lack the slightest sign of a reasonable gameplay, progression, or balance. Everything after MAP02 is just about rushing to the exit, no need to fight at all, just press one switch nearby and you're out of there. The symmetry is also quite disgusting, by the way, even though I understand that you wanted to replicate your source closely. I cannot recommend this, not a good gameplay experience at all. 1/5

Kind of a clever idea, but I'm not sure the idea was realized very well. Most of these are rendered pointless by the fact that you can just run to the exit switch, and with just a bit of scripting you could have emulated the DoomRL level behavior a lot better.

My SP experience in short: lots of HOMs in map01, a zillion of texture misalignments, almost all maps can be finished while running to the exit bypassing most of the level, map09 has monsters which can be killed only with fist and chainsaw. Map layouts are simple, gameplay is very poor. Avoid if you expect some nice SP adventures; maybe some maps are suitable for DM. Overall: gave no fun playing, small 2/5 because of the amount of work.

weird, encountered homs in zdoom but not gzdoom. otherwise okay if this is the author's first maps, but could've been done better with some acs scripting. adding the music from doomrl would've been a nice touch too.

      An another masterpiece from the Scythe Series. I liked the green demons, the idea to set it on a space station which is taken over by Hell's demons sounds neat and as always, I had fun and I was grateful to play it. Hope you'll return one day with Full version of Scythe X   Easily my favourite Megawad Series

      An another awesome Megawad from you Erik. I really liked the details and the design of the maps you added. And the music you added is all the money. I really liked the Ancient Egypt levels and the music that was used on Map 13:Mining Project reminded me the days when I first started the Megaman X games, as it's Sigma Stage 1 Theme.

      Hope you will make a completed version of Scythe 3

      I just played this for the first time in 2021 and I enjoyed it a lot! The maps are sort of old school but play very well.

      A non-conventional level with quite some novel ideas, but none fully executed. Overall easy, save for a more tense location.

      This wad is a great sequel to the Plutonia Experiment. But lol, there are more Imps than Chaingunners unlike Plutonia 1 and Go 4 It is an even more insane version of Go 2 It. Still, great megawad and it should be an official sequel of Plutonia
