About This File

This is (part of) a preliminary version of a three- or four- mission mini-episode designed for the ultimate in DOOM DEATHMATCH enjoyment! It should be usable under 1.2 through 1.6, any deathmatch rules, although the flow of play will of course be slightly different. Actually, you may see a couple of small HOM (Hall Of Mirrors) glitches under 1.2, but it shouldn't affect game play very much, and under 1.5-1.6 it's perfect.

The TARGET CENTER is a lightning level to get those Deathmatch juices flowing! There is no place to hide, nowhere to go, just an open "playing field" surrounded by "bleachers" and a control room. You enter from one of four "ready rooms" with a shotgun or chaingun, but all four ready room doors open together, so your enemy will have to spot you visually.

There is minimal ammo on the "field" and some boxes in the stands. A few stim packs are around, and (except at harder skill levels) one green armor in the control room.

There are a plasma gun and a rocket launcher hoisted way up on pipe stands. Each pipe lowers briefly when you press the button at the *opposite* end -- better run to grab the weapon before it rises! And hope the enemy doesn't get there first...

There's also a chainsaw hidden behind a wall.

Up in the control room is a switch that raises the rim of the "field" just enough so that it becomes one-way! You can get in, but you can't get out except by dying. If this switch is hit, it lasts until you exit the level. See how you like it.

To exit the level, press the gargoyle switch behind the silver door, then run (or have the other fellow ready) to enter the Exit door at the far end and hit the switch.

There are just a few monsters to soften you up, if you want them.

Notice the red team/blue team decor? No way to enforce it in the game, but if you wanted to play four at once in here, you could think of each team has having its own "audience." Alternatively, the way the bleachers are laid out, if you want to play "death co-op" and just let some folks "sit and watch" that might be fun. Co-op players start out in the ring.

There is no nukage or crushers, but you can rocket yourself to death if you insist. I will probably segregate weapons by difficulty level in the final product, but for now they're all in there.

      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.
