Exomoon Megawad

   (5 reviews)

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.

Good megawad! Great map designs and the flow of gameplay felt really good and balanced.

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.

      Too many stations, amazing music and barrels.

      A puzzle focused wad that also contains action? Sign me up! That was close to my initial thoughts upon reading this file description. What this wad actually offers is long corridors and square rooms populated with enemies that are required to infight. That is the puzzle in every one of the five levels. How to cause infighting. This is more of a slaughter-lite level set than an actual puzzle wad so change your expectations accordingly.

      Not canonically beauty from layout and some monster placement, but this map was a big fun for me! A level with some pretty mesmerizing places like the starting point, the raising pits, the really abstract techbase feel, the room lighting up a little when the player crosses some hidden lines in the mazes, the weird "theater" room that reminded me of Icon of Sin for some reason, the overall spooky feel, the final throne room... Great stuff. Things i've kind of disliked are the maze section (especially the skull walls one), some lift that doesn't work (the one where the... blue skull key is iirc and the one that leads to the red door) and the switch puzzle is pretty dull to understand, at least for me... the one with the numbers in the sector, then after one day i get that the numbers are correct order to solve the puzzle lol. Also that horrible teleport maze-like room after the yellow key, damn! Also, this map doesn't screw you around with the difficulty, as the previous reviewer commented this map can be compared to Deus Vult in that terms of difficulty and epic exploration, really. Just a raw 1996 version of it, but the comparison is all here imo.   Overall, a big and fun map to play for me. Cool stuff

      My fave Skillsaw wad. Quite short, not extra difficult and gorgeous.

      A haunting of the soul. Losing grip on reality and stumbling around your own home, lost in the gutters of your mind.
