About This File

You have just stumbled on to a great set of DOOM wads! These puppies took me forever to create, and I assure you you'll like 'em. They're better than most. If you still have Doom on your hard drive, grab these wads! If not, get it back! You'll want to play these levels! I made most of these levels a long, long time ago so some of 'em might have that old-school DOOM feel but they still rock!

vintage set, years later it still is incredibly charming. detail is not everything, the gameplay leaves everything hot and fresh. lovely stuff.

Pretty cool E1/E2 replacement. Some nasty traps in spots but nothing I felt was too unreasonable save for maybe one setup involving a Spider Mastermind in the distance with little cover on one of the secret maps. Love the ideas on display like the graveyard map in E2 and the close-quarters shootout of E2M6. Definitely felt it had more highlights than it had flaws, so I'd say it was perfectly legit Doom experience - not perfect, but certainly legit. A good place to look for some unconventional ideas and some left-field designs.

Nice old school wad. Very playable and pretty challenging, especially for it's time. This was one of the occasions where the Metallica midis were put to good use. 4/5. -TRRobin.

The good: a lot of this is 5 star good old fashioned, nuts-n-bolts Doom. The bad: its ruined by occasional annoyances like teleport mazes abd incomprehenible secrets. The really bad: descends into slaughterwad stupid, particularly late in e2. Still, better than 90% of stuff here, marked down to 4. Worth a download.

I had pretty much fun playing these levels a few
years back. They might not be that good by
today's standards though. The Metallica music was
a big factor in the funness of this wad.

The first episode is designed in a more or less classic style, but with a few unusual touches and with gameplay completely different from what I've experienced before. Very creative, 5 stars material. The second episode is somewhat weaker, could be described as "slaughter maps for Ultimate Doom", starting especially from E2M5. Still decent stuff, though. Overall, 4/5 stars, vdgg

Maybe I'm biased 'cause it was one of the first PWads I ever played, but I love this wad. It captures that 'classic' feel perfectly, and every level looks and plays just as good as the original Doom maps. The music fits perfectly and it's got some of the most outrageous (by 1997 standards) conflicts to be had -- multiple spiderdemons, zombies rising from their graves, "sleeping demons", and of course, the Hive. Classic Doom fans, this is a wad not to be missed. 5'd - Xaser

This is beautiful, people. Creativity, sadism, epic battles with hundreds of monsters. An utter classic.

A great old set of two episodes, get it if you're looking for good Ultimate Doom stuff.

Very fun, very cheesy (especially with the 90's soundpack added and the Metallica, Nirvana and Deep Purple MIDIs I recognised) and surprisingly challenging, considering its age. I'd recommend this to everyone, although there are certainly wads of higher *quality* about. 4* -Phobus

This megawad introduced me to Metallica and heavy metal in general! Automatic 5/5!

Genius. Classic architecture, innovative tricks despite the year, exceptionally balanced ammo count, your never in excess and rckts and cells are scarce. Remarkably non-linear design, a kick ass soundtrack! Best of all it's very tough! E1 contains the entire beastiary, enemies appear in groups, very unexpected monster placement and secrets are actually very well hidden for once! My only criticism is I wish it were longer! 5/5 - Bloodite Krypto

      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).
