Man on the Moon is a single-level PWAD for Doom II and an MBF-compatible source port such as PrBoom+ that came out in November 2018. It was designed by Yugiboy85 and uses the music track "Gutter Penny" by Gus Knezevich (Alfonzo). It was named a runner-up at the 2018 Cacowards ceremony.

Man on the Moon includes one custom monster, the Terminator (replacing the helper dog), as well as updated sprites for all three former humans.

Secrets[edit]

  1. In the first big room, you will see a berserk pack at the east end. To get it, open the east door and head northeast. At the arch, find a red button to the right, then return to the big room to get the berserk pack. (sector 2938)
  2. At the north end, flip the switch surrounded by barrels and you will lower the floor to the west. Northwest is another switch, which you must jump to and flip. After doing so, jump down, head west, and into the south alcove to get an energy cell pack. (sector 1861)
  3. Head west of the rocket launcher in the first outside area, and behind the wall will be a green button. Use it, then head to the high ground above it and head a bit north, until you see a button switch to the west. Shoot it, then head back to the steps east of the rocket launcher and go until you get to an alcove leading north to a plasma gun. Do note that you will teleport if you attempt to get it the first time to a rocket launcher area. Teleporting out of there will get you the plasma gun. (sector 394)
  4. After leaving Secret #3, head southwest and take the step up, then head down to get a soul sphere. (sector 129)
  5. Head to the switch below the red keycard, but do not press it yet or you will miss your chance at this secret. Instead, head south of it and around to the northwest side of it to find a red button. Use it, then use the switch and continue east and north. In this next room, enter the teleporter to the east to find rockets and a megasphere. (sector 2350)
  6. Open the red door north of the red key and immediately open the west wall to find rockets, an armor bonus, and a computer area map. (sector 1710)
  7. After the square arenas at the north end, head west to the gray water and head southwest until you get to a switch. After using it, return to the square arenas and head to the southeast door, using the switch there to lower the floor. Head towards the next switch and open the south wall to find a blur artifact. (sector 1121)
  8. After the square arenas at the north end, head west to the gray water and head southwest to a building entrance. Head to the left of it, looking through a fence to a button switch. Shoot it, then if you have not done so already, press the switch in the southwest room, then return to the square arenas and enter the cave to the east. Use the switch here, then head southeast, climbing the steps and heading around to boxes of ammo. Keep going past that to find rockets, and if you stay on the ledge, you can get to a megasphere near the southwest room you were at. (sector 1276)
  9. At the southwest end, head east from the water climbing the steps, then heading west on the higher cliffs. Jump southwest from the blue walls and head to the west side of this ledge to find a blue button, opening the middle up. Head down the steps to get a megasphere. (sector 4221)
  10. In the southwest hall, open the area that has former humans and dead bodies. In that area, head to the west side and use the wall where the dead marine is to find a box of rockets, boxes of shotgun shells, and a soul sphere. (sector 2495)
  11. Flip the switch in Secret #10 and teleport to a megaarmor. (sector 2900)
  12. At the southwest end, head east from the water climbing the steps, then heading south and west past a berserk pack. When you climb the steps, look north through a gray fence and shoot the button, then head back east, north, and east (make sure you have used the switch near the blue key. In this area, head to the darker gray steps and climb them, then stay on this ledge to the southeast side to get to a secret area with an invulnerability and energy cells (these items do not appear on Ultra-Violence or higher). (sector 3646)
  13. After getting all four keys and using the switches with colored bars on them, head to the north hall (where Secret #2 is), and get the plasma gun in the north room. Use the switch there as well, then return all the way to the southwest end of the map. Four barriers and a door are now open to the south, leading to energy cells and a BFG9000. (sector 3692)
