This is SO bizarre that's actually a lot of FUN! Play if you like experimental design. I love it!

On a technical level this is awful - it looks like something from early 1995, and there are lots of mistakes (some of which are trivial, e.g. most of Map07 is flagged as secret, and there are loads of unmarked doors and switches). Each level has one idea and one idea only, usually executed badly (e.g. the ghost monsters in Map14, which never leave their homes). You can usually run past everything, in which case it's decent fun, because the levels are short.

I agree with the reviewer who said it's not all that bad. At least not as Cyb himself stated. It isn't a beginner megawad like DoomJr, but admittedly Cyb went on to create, much much better levels. This is a pretty plain average megawad IMO, so 2.5 stars from me. Good for a "snack".

oh Project X. you seemed like you had some potential, but you never delivered. it's basically Doom Jr. 2.0, with slightly better maps, although one is recycled altogether. these maps are very low quality and wouldn't actually feel out of place if they were in Maximum Doom. heck, even the dehacked patch and the demos for the levels are all put into SEPARATE files elsewhere, which I guess was what had to be done at the time. this is the kind of stuff that newbie mappers actually DON'T do nowadays, you can probably play someone's first map in this day and age and it would look better than all of the maps in here combined.

 

i'm not gonna increase my star ranking at all, but I will give credit where it is due, as cyb actually had a few ideas going. they just weren't implemented well. a rocket-jumping map? okay. maps that take after IWAD levels but smaller in scale with new areas? cute but not great. an arch-vile ghost monster combination? sure (unfortunately this is supposed to be repeated in MAP29, but it's not hardcoded for the particular map in question and that map also is bugged to be unbeatable because of certain stairs). also a map where you do nothing but kill Commander Keens in a scavenger hunt. while these ideas are nice, not one of them is done pretty well and the wad doesn't improve much.

Well, whaddaya know. It's very crude and simplistic and even for 1998 the design is shoddy; but it's actually quite fun to play, especially if you just set out to run through the levels as fast as possible. It's like a punk megawad, then; technically very poor but fun.

Small nicely detailed maps with few paths to go so its easy going some good eye candy here as well. At the end it gets little complicated. The monster count is decent on all maps.

I played the whole wad in a few hours, and I really liked it because the levels were not to long! Great Job!! I bet you could do better on other wads though! 8/10 (4/5)

I know that most people hate this Wad, but I actually find it to be ok. Nothing really special, but not as bad as what most people are flinging around.

      Some very cool techbases with a nice texture set and pallette.  The music is pretty epic.  And it all runs in vanilla! (Or so it is said, I played it in GZDoom)

      I honestly can't believe that this whole megawad is 100% vanilla compatible and its only the first of THREE episodic megawads! Esselfortium and her team of creative energetic mappers has done an amazing job from the unique texture set, the music, the maps & even the tweaked color palette that fits the mood of the whole thing.    100% highly recommended! 5/5

      A pretty straightforward map to run through, packing in tons of enemies in rooms both big and small. Most of the monsters you'll be killing are E1 monsters such as Zombiemen and Imps, so while there isn't much in monster variety, there are plenty of ways to get them to fight each other which I like. It might be better to try and get as many monsters to start attacking at the same time since once you get the Chaingun, not even the groups of Spectres are much of a threat. Overall though, the map is still fun to blast through if you just want to kill tons of monsters in packs.

      this is a strange wad, with assets similar to Darkest Hour and other Star Wars-themed wads, many of the maps focus on small killings, as most of the maps are actually small. Pinchy's finale sure makes this worth it. oh yeah, quite a few custom stuff was done. the flamethrower marines were quite annoying, while other monsters gained multiple attacks, new ones, it's all so zany. the maps are pretty well done overall and this is worth a try.

      Okay, I get it, it's a megawad mainly for speedrunners who are intricately familiar with the mechanics of the game down to the nitty-gritty. A series of challenges/obstacles that, for the most part, seem to be possible but are generally ludicrous (and sometimes outright laughable, in a good way).   This was is not a "pile of junk" as a few have said however it's really, really lacking in a lot of ways. I get that the wad is meant to have a fun-and-not-serious tone despite it's overall extreme difficulty but the texturing looks like the insides of a toilet bowl after a Taco Bell buffet. Seriously, these maps are jealous of how beautiful and futuristic maps like UAC_DEAD look. The DWANGO series looks like fucking Ancient Aliens compared to this.   The MIDIs are lighthearted, silly and fun, which adds a layer of appeal for me personally. I loved seeing Patrick Stewart at the intermission too, rofl   I had some fun with this IDCLEVing through the whole wad and giving each map a try or 2 before moving on to the next but I seriously doubt I'll ever be back. The same idea with better texturing and overall taking itself just a tiny bit more seriously would warrant a higher rating. Ass-ugly texturing, silly MIDIs and a silly titlepic/interpic are fun in their own right so don't take me the wrong way but a lot of it crossed into "looks like the authors gave 0 fucks" category and I just have to take points away for that.   Also,   lol wtf is this bullshit is this a terrywad or somethin i mean jeeeezus   Overall, this is worth a peek just for some fun but unless you're a highly skilled speedrunner that also doesn't mind looking into a crapchute map after map, this probably doesn't really have much for you.
