About This File

Exomoon (aka Moonblood X) is a megawad for Doom 2. The levels are a mix of the original Moonblood with early BTSX levels. It has the ruins/temple theme with some exotic natural landscapes. Scythe and Mano Laikas also are a strong influence. It has been tested on ZDoom 2.8 and PrBoom+ 2.5.1.3.

Its pretty ok. Decently impressive but in the first level there is a hall of mirrors effect for the sky. It sort of feels like plutonia at times with  some of the monsters.

Exomoon is a 24-level megawad slated to be the successor to Moonblood, so if you are expecting to see some similar styles of gameplay here, well, you'll find some. but for the most part Exomoon is quite different. it takes after Plutonia, but instead of giving us loads of small but difficult levels to play through, the majority of maps are actually medium-sized, somewhere around the length it would take to finish The Sewers (Plutonia MAP28).

 

and of course, it's certainly on the level of something just a tad above Plutonia, like early AV, BTSX, or mid-UR difficulty. the monster placement centers around the ones who are of the biggest annoyances, like mancubi, chaingunners, and arachnotrons, also throwing in multiple new ones like arachnorbs (tougher than Valiant) and terrors (faster lost souls). there's even a few boss fights. layout-wise, these medium-sized maps are all non-linear, with action right from the start in most cases. trying to get a feel of where you are in the level and where you're supposed to go can lead into some trouble in some cases, but overall, the experience of playing through each map is still enjoyable, hard, but enjoyable.

 

because i'm personally not a fan of these boss fights, or even MAP18 which took way too long, i'm giving this four stars. it's worth at least one go just to see what has been accomplished. tackling all these settings feels like such.

      One of the best wads I've ever played, has a great and memorable soundtrack while also having a nice and difficult (but satisfying) level design. To me a nice step up from the original and a way more balanced map pack overall.

      Highly recommended to people who want a nice and difficult wad to play.

      I generally like city maps on DOOM but this set of maps are one of worst I've ever played. Extremely confusing maps, obtuse progression and on top of that there's no enough ammo on UV to kill the monsters. Gave up on MAP 06. It's utter garbage really, you should avoid it.

      Creative, fun, entertaining and challenging levels, very cleverly hidden secrets, some butt-kicking ambushes and traps. Ammo balance is pretty tight in some maps with pistol start, but everything is possible. A must-play WAD.

      A very neat 1996 map that i kinda remember to have played already long ago, or at least something with a similar start, a really good interconnected layout (even if i was roaming around asking where to go, especially after taking the blue key and trying to leave the caves section), good texturing, hard monster placement (the easiest monsters are the shotgunners), really generous with health placement and some strategic megaspheres here and there, too bad it is too stingy with ammo, leaving me battling chaingunners with only a chainsaw sometimes... but overall, very good!

      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.
