About This File

Dark, dank passageways ... The best bit is the Great Hall, where an animated firefight should develop.

Sui Generis

I came into this with high hopes given the below comments, but was disappointed to be greeted by a small, almost symmetrical map with a preponderance of bare, narrow corridors. The map sees you being hit early with demons when you may only have a pistol and forces you to run through slime, unless you find a secret chaingun. It sounds oppressive but once you find a weapon you're set. The red key area is completely superfluous. I think this map is well made but not nearly as special as the comments suggest

A nearly perfect '94 WAD. A little on the short and easy side, but the execution is flawless. Even the textures are aligned, can you believe it?

Play is okay but not great. The architecture is mostly square-ish and bland. I'm not sure why there is a bright military-looking room in the middle of a "Gloomy Dungeon" either, but the map mostly sticks to theme.

It looks suprisingly good among piles of '94 shite. Too short, though, you can complete it very quickly after grabbing only blue key. BTW, "..animated firefight should develop"? Isn't it beautiful example of newspeak? And bug with not overly agressive demons is easy to resolve - feed them with only one mars bar per day -- Brun Ohn

A small, basic dungeon, not very pretty but gloomy enough. There aren't many monsters but ammo is tight early on, so conserve ammo, use infighting, and try to find that chainsaw...

      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...
