Haha this looks familiar! Apparently Plutonia Map09 was also available as a standalone release from Milo. There are some differences between the version included in Plutonia; the most visible difference from the beginning is that there is quite a bit more ammo, making the level somewhat easier. All of the textures are also default Doom 2 textures, which makes sense. The exit room is different from the Plutonia version of the level as well.

 

Overall, there isn't really much point in playing this. You can just play the Plutonia version. However, it is certainly a curiosity and is a fine 1995 map on it's own. 5/5 (what else?)

Looks like a "demo" of Plutonia.

Very cool (if slightly linear) level, that's fantastic for it's time. Quite a challenge, with some nice architexture (again, especially considering it was done in 95). What else would you expect from a Casali :P

This is an entertaining level, especially given its age. The big problem is that it's too easy - you have a huge amount of rockets and plasma ammo. The Plutonia version wasn't very hard either, but you had an incentive to save your ammo. It's odd that you get the blue armour right at the end of the level (in fact you have to carefully walk around the exit pit to get it). The Plutonia version fixes this by turning the exit catwalk around, and making the room meatier.

This map can also be found in Plutonia, as map 9 (abattoire), with a slightly reworked (harder) exit room. It's not bad, but ultimately it's nothing special, either. Texturing is very repetitive, and the map is quite bare. Gameplay's okay, I guess. By the way, I find Milo's "more than a year and a half" remark kind of funny, considering the timestamp of the WAD (March 2nd 1995) :-P --3/5

      An impressively large and labyrinthine map, even by 2018 standards. It was enjoyable for the most part, with reasonable health and ammo balance, and interesting to explore. My one big complaint is the teleporters - the map would have already been difficult enough to navigate without apparently patternless teleporters all throughout the map!   You can watch my two-part playthrough here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z9Zrs5PcljE https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhzaiqfM6Uc

      An amazing hellbase style level mixed with a bit of cave exploring, utilizes ZDoom effects to create a nice atmospheric environment to play in. I played on UV and found the difficulty to be fair while still presenting a challenge in a few spots. Overall it's pretty good but could of ended a little better as I am not a fan of arena endings.

      Rather alright but nothing too special besides the spectral enemy gimmick and the marble theme.

      Hangar is a single GZDoom level that has one of the best uses of 3D floors I've seen. There really isn't much I can say about this level except that is just really solid.

      I have a soft spot for levels set in somewhat realistic facilities that also feature a light horror theme, however, what I don't like are levels full of what can be surmised as annoying monster encounters. Specifically what I find annoying are the monsters placed on UV which lead to rather poor level flow. This level does look good and has a nice custom song playing but the stock scream sound effects that play somewhat frequently do detract from this. Overall this is an okay level that could very easily be made good if monster flow was made better and the screams were played less often.
