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

      Pretty good. The combat was fun and design wasn't bad at all.

      Despite its age, nice details and well designed. Way how blue key is hidden is really clever. But map is dark and cramped. Enemies are only imps and hitscanners.

      Pretty good map in E1 base style (except Doom2 monsters) Nice design but there some texture alignment issues.

      Despite the browns and grays that are prominent in this megaWAD, I found it to be fun. I also found it to be quite the challenge. The first map gives you a taste of what to expect in terms of enemy encounters. The author makes good use of mid-tier enemies to apply pressure on the player. Monster count for most of the maps barely breaks the 150 mark but, as said before, the use of mostly mid-tier enemies puts pressure on the player. I also like how the megaWAD handles level progression. Most of the levels you go through consist of caves, cities, islands, and tech bases in space. In fact, there's only one real Hell-like level and even it's within the confines of the moon base you fight through in maps 21 - 30.   About the only gripes I have with this megaWAD are with regards to maps 32, 29, and 30. I know the text file and map 31 give warnings about map 32 but there really should be some kind of alternate exit in map 32 instead of trapping you in place if you don't pass one of the puzzles. I wasn't a fan of how close quarters the IoS fight was in map 29, especially since it can get cramped quickly with monster spawns. Finally, the randomization of what keys spawn during your escape in map 30 isn't fun either. 10 minutes seems like plenty of time but between navigating the vent system (again) without light goggles and dealing with mid-tier enemies, that 10 minutes can get eaten up really quick.   Overall, it's still a fun megaWAD. I'd recommend at least giving it a shot.
