About This File

A largish level, with monsters from lots of unexpected places, and a few cool ideas to show off, including some nice light- sourcing (sort of). This is a level to make the cautious wary, and the brash, dead. To set the scene, read the story at the end of this text. Only weapons and monsters from Episode 1 are included. Not suitable for a Deathmatch, although the start locations are in there.

This is a technically competent, but otherwise moderately well designed 94 map. Use of raising stairs and such is offset by poorer choices such as doors rising into sky near the end. This map is an improvement over tree1, and some of the traps are fun, particularly the penultimate one, plus it has more monsters and fewer obscure design choices or puzzles so has better flow. But with a couple of exceptions it's mostly clearing enemies in front of you. It's not horrible, just needs better design choices.

Awesome for 1994!! "Only weapons and monsters from Episode 1 are included." - Oh no, cacodemons in episode 1! 4/5

I personally think that this has not aged as badly as most wads from this era, the map is balanced and does not feel like you are ever in an unwinnable situation surrounded with no where to go. The textures could have possibly been used a bit better and most of the rooms are not really much to look at from a technical standpoint. But overall this map still manages to get the job done and gives you a small piece of action that satisfies, average yes but worth playing 3/5.

This is very good for such an early level - from May 1994, it's one of the first hundred files in the Doomworld archives. It doesn't amount to a great deal, but it's technically competent and the balance of health, ammo and weapons is finely judged. One room almost killed me. It feels like a good level from a year later. The final battle is a bit of a disappointment but this is miles ahead of most other 1994 levels.

Pretty good for 1994. The battles were fun and even challenging at some points. It's aged terribly, yes, but it's much better than some of the other wads of its time. 3/5

      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

      JENESIS REVIEW:   - Single Player - UV Settings - Pistol starts every Map - Third time playing in about 4-5 years span   The Good:    - Continuous Maps    - Great architecture    - Incredible Hellish themes    - Excellent monster placement    - Clever puzzles    - Loads of secrets. Most are clever as well.    - Great music    - Lots of stuff to get you alive and stocked    - Levels are just the right size. Not small nor are they huuuuuuge.    - Not a slaughterfest, but not easy either. Difficulty is perfect for single player.   The Bad:     - There's no Jenesis II.    In short:   Sometimes, finding a new DooM WAD to play is like finding a decent horror movie to watch: You're going to go through a few crappy ones before you find one that makes it all worthwhile. Jenesis is one of those WADS to play that's worth going through some crappy ones first.   If you are looking for a great balance between dog fighting and puzzle solving, then Jenesis is for you. This game was fun as hell - every level.    Anyone who plays this can easily tell that MUCH work went into this fantastic game. It's WADs like this one that keep me playing. Bravo Mr. Paddock!   You have huge shoes to fill, Jenesis - for my next WAD I play. One of my all time faves. Well deserved Cacoward. What a game! :)   5 out of 5 Stars.
