About This File

This well designed level has quite a few areas to discover, it takes me (the author) about 18 minutes to complete the entire level with 100% kills and all secrets found in skill 4 mode.

Please note that you must be alert in locatating certain switches and doors that might not look like the ones you're used to - this is by design for reasons of creativity. Different, but well done.

The texture alignment is outstanding (nice wall switches) and to top it off, there are a ton of new graphics contained in this file...

Don't be surprised if you discover some familiar bitmaps along the way...There are some textures in this file from "Rise of the Triad" by Apogee Software, as well as Doom 1 and 2 from id Software. I thought it would be wonderful to see all my favorite textures in one level...well, here it is and I'm sure you'll agree that they all look great together.

I would recommend at least a 486DX2/66 with 8 Megs of RAM to enjoy the level fully. This is the system I used to write Wyvern Heights - it runs great on my computer, no slowing down (thanks again RMB!). I wish every author would use it...

Oh, one more thing...Please, no codes! There is ample ammo and if you're semi-experienced at Heretic then it will be a good WAD for you to practice your combat stategies...just don't cheat.

Meh. This looks promising at first, but it's not really that great. The ripped textures are not so good, and the map just feels kind of rambling; it's not coherent and the object placement doesn't really give strong gameplay. The IWAD levels are better than this.

Same as above, but still easy, I haven't even used a single inventory item to complete the map. 3/5. ~Naan

      This is a solid contender for being the absolute best Megawad that I've ever played.

      I...did not review this, okay. well, it's blue and it's pretty decent and setpiece-y. get used to ribbiks' style and this one is just like all his other maps, very well-designed and fun to play. just watch out for MAP03's final area.

      it's one of those classic 90's wads you can probably just sift through, but it's not that good. plenty of inescapable pits, some awful level progression, and some actually trollish crusher placement lie within this one.

      A few really good maps supported by a bunch of alright ones. Visuals are mostly Plutonia-inspired, with the occasional veering into Shores of Hell type mish-mash architecture. Difficulty is about on par with DOOM2.wad I think. Overall, a rather pedestrian affair, although the standout maps are certainly worth the time.

      BACK TO SATURN X E1: GET OUT OF MY STATIONS REVIEW:   The Good:   - Stunning visuals   - Great monster placement   - Lots of (clever) secrets and they are rewarding   - Enough ammo to keep you going   - The names of the Maps LOL!   - Loads of fun   - Awesome music!   The Bad:   - Not long enough. LOL! I loved it so much, I didn't want it to end!   In Short: I've actually played this fantastic WAD at least 6 or 7 times. Why? This is my second favorite WAD of all time, only bested by its successor, BTSX Episode 2: Fountain of Sparks. I remember the very first time I played it a couple of years ago like it was yesterday. How many times can you say that (in a good way) about a game?   I remember being completely blown away by the architectural designs at the time. I even remember giggling as I sunk in the ocean on the final Map, only to read something like "To Be Continued..." and thinking, "Awww....it's over." But I admit that, like everyone else, I had loads of fun with this.    There is lack of a "customary" final boss (I wasn't certain if this was a "Good" or "Bad" element of the game, hence why it's in neither category above - it really will depend on the player so I kept it neutral). But don't let that deter you! The final "stage" in the last (playable) Map is as memorable as it is wicked, and it'll keep you on your toes just like any other customary boss!   Play this WAD if it's the only WAD you ever play. Definite replay value.   Well deserved Cacoward. Thanks, Team, for making it!   5 out of 5 stars with me.  ~ dylux
