About This File

The UAC genius who developed the trans-dimensional warp was believed killed during the fiasco on Deimos. But it appears that he managed to escape, using a new interplanetary teleporter! Even worse, this man has made an evil pact with the forces of evil - he is building a HellGate to transport hordes of demons and imps to take over the world. Our hero, the stolid marine, must put this menace to an end. Already, demonic troops stand guard over the complex where the unethical maniac has performed his fiendish work. You are dropped into the central compound at night. Your mission - destroy all opposition. Deactivate the HellGate!

Not half bad. Another reminder to us all, what with all these elaborate ports and wads we have nowadays, that straight bare-knuckles combat is what made us all fall in love with this game in the first place

It was good and all, but I think it lacked real strategic planning. If you know what I mean. The structures should be more detailed and (with windows if possible) very eye catching. It wasn't bad though I enjoyed playing it...

This is from July 1994. It's an unexceptional 1994-era techbase, very undetailed, with typically wonky textures etc. It feels like a random collection of winding corridors and square rooms, with random clumps of random monsters. I giggled at the Baron of Hell who had his head stuck in the ceiling, I sighed at the dark computer maze, and lastly I had a powerful orgasm as I deleted the level from my hard drive.

      This is the first non-Euclidean doom wad I've ever seen! And it's done right! That must've been some project. Well done.

      *** PLUTONIA 3 - GOING TO THE SURFACE Review ***   I usually start off my reviews with "The Bad," followed by "The Good." This one is going to have "The Ugly." Ready?   The Good:   - Not a thing.   The Bad:   - Everything. For a more detailed reason, see TurrboAnklet's and/or GuyNamedErick's review (both below). I agree with 110% of every word written in both.   The Ugly:   - Duke Nukem music? Really?!?!?! - BFG9000 in second level. And enough plasma cells to virtually destroy the universe including any parallel ones.   **************************************************************************   In Short: I saw the PLUTONIA name, and I got fairly excited to play it. But, that's the gimmick here, isn't it? Reel you in with the name and then you open Pandora's Box. Freeware or not.   I played a few levels from start, then I IDCLEV'ed to a couple teen-numbered levels, then to mid- to later-twenty numbered levels to see if there was hope in the future for any chance of fun. Nope. It's as much fun as eating a generic-branded box of Mac & Cheese - with the box missing the cheese.   I am required to give this WAD at least 1 star else I can't post a review. So, for that reason ONLY, this "WAD" gets a star. There is no freaking way this took 3 years to build. I would believe it more, if it were 3 minutes. This clusterf*ck not only tarnishes the great PLUTONIA name, it insults the entire DooM universe.   Soooo not recommended. 0 out 5 stars.

      Gameplay is just okay, nothing especially interesting. But the level's theme and textures are pretty damn funny. Everywhere you look there's another little joke. It's worth playing just for amusement. I don't know what the hell these commenters are talking about regarding a "creepy atmosphere", IMO you'd have to be a pretty big weenie to get scared by a Doom level full of joke textures just because its a little dark...

      Very cool level. The way you have to use your fist & pistol in the beginning enhances the feeling of being trapped & powerless and having to escape. The visuals are very nicely-done, with lots of little details & cool ideas. The atmosphere is quite spooky, reminding me of the dungeon segments of the later Unloved. It is indeed linear, but it's still an interesting journey and the gameplay is fair & fun.

      Nice layout. There are actually some challenging moments with monsters attacking from every direction, especially if you try to rush it. The visuals are basic but stylish and might remind you of early Grain of Salt levels (see Green Goddess).
