About This File

Phobos is a 4 level pwad set under a spectacular Phobos sky with Mars, the Red Planet, looming malevolently on the horizon. It loosely follows the story line of the first 4 Doom I levels but with larger, more spectacular, more challenging levels. Briefly, the levels are as follows:

HANGER: You will discover a spaceport, complete with ticket counters and boarding gates that will have you boarding the next flight to get the hell out of there!

NUCLEAR PLANT: This is where the electricity to power Phobos Base is generated. It is complete with nuclear reactor, steam generators, fuel storage pools, turbine hall, switch yard, and nuclear dump site. Your opposition will not want to let this place go!

TOXIN REFINERY: UAC had an industrial chemical plant at Phobos Base complete with fractional distillation towers, chemical reactors, storage tanks, and control center. Your opposition has taken it and subverted into processing evil toxins!

COMMAND AND CONTROL: This is the control center for the entire Phobos Base and the surrounding space of the Mars planetary system. This may be the place where the hellspawn of your opposition first invaded and decapitated the command and control structure for the entire Mars planetary system. They entered clandestinely from below!

Quite a succesfull attempt at realism in doom, and considering the fact that it was done was vanilla it's even more impressive. The gameplay was meh, so I'll have to dock down a point for that, but otherwise it's pretty great and original. It's only 4 maps, but they are all quite big. 4 stars. Note: the title may be misleading, there's nothing here that resembles episode 1 stylistically. -TeH NeXuS

      Pretty long maps and there are some real stinkers in there like map 19. But overall, its fun even though it can get frustrating at times.

      A fun, non-linear base level somewhat on the easy side but still worth playing and has good replayability.

      The only thing good about this set of maps are the encounters which are balanced. All the rest are horrible, noob designing with invisible pillars in all the maps, unavoidable damage without radsuits, keys required to progress in secret places, hidden teleport required to progress, everything bad in designing you can find in those maps. Be sure to avoid this, certainly one of worst set of maps I've ever played.

      How could i miss this gem for all this time... This is going to inspire me so much, level design is fantastic, top level creativity and a nice challenge. Texture usage is perfect and new sprites and monsters fit in perfectly.   1000/5, easily one of the best megawads ever made! Thank you Skillsaw!!

      I'd have to say this is a pretty creative one for Doom 2, its hard with lots of enemies, kind of plays like a direct sequel to Doom 2 in a lot of ways. One thing I will say is that the puzzles are hard to figure out, and might take you awhile to solve (use your map). The music is fantastic though, you don't really miss the classic music, and it's engaging to gameplay.   I will say though, like Doom 2 or Plutonia, ultraviolence is pretty brutal and isn't for everyone. You will get swarmed by absurd amounts of monsters at times, and they'll give you a beating, but it's doable. I'd say the puzzles will snag you more than the monsters, level 2 is a real humdinger, lol.   But, it's a big improvement over wads like Perdition's Gate, the mapping style is pretty creative. I give it 5/5, just so people will try it out.
