About This File

In Dreadnaught you are Kane, an immortal who was doomed to roam the Earth by the god that created you. The punishment levelled at you for killing your own brother and thus brought terrible violence to the Earth. The irony is that the god was a corrupt and cynical part of the supernatural universe overruling Earth and you, Kane, rebelled against being used as a pawn. Your adventures take place in all ages of Earth. Your sword and battle prowess is at the service of any ruler who can pay your price. You are a true anti-hero who changes sides to suit your own advantage and mood. You never age and remain as old as you were when the god cursed you. You can be killed but up to now no human has come close to doing so.

In Knockabout...beyond Dreadnaught, Kane is continuing his majestic adventures. After surviving and conquering the onslaught that was brought upon his torn soul in Dreadnaught, Kane is back to finish his quest.

In Dreadnaught, Scotts Portals, is the beginning of your long and tasking journey. From here you will have access to the other four levels. You will have to complete the first three, The Swamps of Thark, The Tomb of Quarix and The Palace of Ice before you get access to Veda's Vault. Once Veda's Vault is conquered you will revisit Scott's Portals to finish off the ramaining beasts and ghosts of days gone before you free yourself from the curse that was cast upon your soul.

And in Knockabout, Wheel of Fire is where you begin your illfated journey. It is here where you will have access to the other 4 levels, Slice and Dice, Game of Death, The Bell Tolls and HexQuake. You must complete the first 3 sublevels before gaining access to the final level and to face the fate that you have chosen and others have failed.

Seems like a good wad in close to iwad's style, but very buggy builded: hexen.exe has a high probability of crashing on moving between maps. So recommended for try for zdoom users.

Overall I did like this... VERY big set of hub levels. If there was a complaint, it is that once you teleport to the KNOCKABOUT levels (in the room with the 3 evil characters) you cannot get back to the DREADNAUGHT levels. A bit frustrating that after you kill the Heriesarch in HexQuake2, you transport to HexQuake, finish it up and teleport back to HexQuake2 again? The teleporter on HexQuake should take you back to the DREADNAUGHT hub (especially considering that I barely touched the swamp level).

There were a fair deal good and fun parts in this map set, but there were also some parts that were not so good. Especially annoying is a place where a vital key is hidden behind a secret door that, while marked, is really not that obvious. There is also a Death Wyvern that hasn't been properly implemented, so it just sits there, and some places that appear to have parts copied directly from the default maps. Still, there are enough fun parts in this set that it's still worth taking a look at.

This is a shining example of how NOT to design levels. If you like looking for secrets just so you can progress in the map (keys and switches are hidden) then you'll love this. The areas have a uncanny resemblance to Hexen's own areas. There's nothing to see here. 1/5 -K

      If you want something quick, fun, challenging, and a little nostalgic, play this.   Good job, Jimmy.

      If you want something that looks uncomplicated but fair looking, easy but not uninvolved, non-linear but small, somewhat blocky but still good architecture and very quick to beat without ever saving throughout all 9 maps then this is your WAD. I played it, I liked it. Design themes stray towards the original E4, but are not exactly the same.

      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...
