ALPHA GUNS (and more)
Description
Way back in April of 1993 id Software sent to their Beta Testers the Alpha v0.4 of their upcoming game "Doom: Evil Unleashed". Most of the weapons, powerups, health and ammo never made it into the final game. Many of the early wall and floor textures were also dropped. There's even a monster in the early Alpha versions which you would hardly recognise. Alpha Guns is a Partial Conversion for Doom and Doom II which simulates part of this Doom Alpha v0.4. The early Space Marine had a very crude arsenal at his disposal - chainsaw, bayonet, rifle and machine gun. The rocket launcher, plasma gun and BFG 2704 (later to become the BFG 9000) were still in the pre-prototype stage where only a weapon icon was available. The Super Shotgun of course was still only a thought in some UAC engineer's head. ALPHA GUNS enables you to experience the DOOM amd DOOM II worlds as if advanced weapons development had ceased back in April 1993. See what the early Space Marines had to deal with as you battle the original levels with the Alpha chainsaw, bayonet, rifle and machine gun. The levels are now filled with Alpha powerups, health, armor, ammo, etc. Only the most battle-hardened Space Marines need apply because the remaining weapons (super shotgun, rocket launcher, plasma gun and BFG 2704) have all been replaced with prototype versions which may not work quite as well as the production models you have come to know. See below for Extra Notes - artistic licenses taken, test results, etc.
