Man on the Moon

Despite the fact it's a single map, it may take up to 2 hours to complete it. Plenty of monsters, lots of routes to walk around, unpredictable traps, enough stuff to fight back. Basically, it's a common practice for a single-map WAD nowdays.

MBF here is used for graphical enhancements only, but I like the overall architecture even without those light scrolling effects all over the place.

The map's size is too big and sometimes it requires extra walking around to see what has changed after you've crossed this linedefs or that switch. Sometimes it's more reasonable to do some research in GZDoom Builder to figure out where you're supposed to go, rather than roam the map blindly.

After finally beating the map, you're not likely to revisit the map again. It's for 1-time play, to be honest. Also, there is no intermission text. An arduous journey has been come, so why not to show an epilogue or a short outcome? That would be nice!

 

Deserved 4 stars! It's a little bit vexing this wad didn't get any cacowards.

Too many enemies right away and no clear direction. I can't tell if this is the correct wad or not because of the filename being energy.wad, so I'll give 4 stars anyway.

 

Edit: I got the wrong wad. The wad I got is called the secret energy.

      errrmm... Yeah. They really don't. Its not as if they are dormant - they follow you. Even the archvile. It's slightly surreal having a mob of doom monsters following without attacking.   If that was used effectively, it might be cool. But to misquote Wolverine - it's a big square room...

      Definitely plays a lot like E1M1. Not a bad quick play at all. I like these short-n-sweet ones!

      Demons on fire, two-headed chaingunners riding arachnotrons, flying barons, resurrecting imps, the f***  y** demon, helicopters with plasma marine and great music by Mark Klem. Unique gameplay, tons of fun.

      This map will take as long to complete as an episode of original Doom. It is VERY ornate and convoluted, and somewhat directionless. I played with latest Guncaster (1.777) and latest stable GZDoom (4.5). It took me nearly 2 hours. I still don't know how to get the yellow key without jumping.   I recommend using a gameplay mod with double jump and mantling, like Project Brutality, or D4D or Guncaster. There are no new monsters or weapons, so you won't miss out on original content if you use a gameplay mod.
      There is a cool boss battle in the end. All the areas are nicely designed and detailed, and the final area looks cool. The exit area is central North, by the way. Beware, there are some inescapable traps if you play with jumping, so save often.

      Early M. Krause map. Through some catacombs, a cemetery courtyard, electric compounds and radioactive pools. Dark, cool detailing.
