You begin on the marbled rooftop of an island fortress. Work your way down two terraced levels, battling all your favorite foes. Note: although the chainsaw & berserk pack are sources of limitless entertainment, they usually serve a dual purpose, (i.e., they allow you to conserve ammo). Remember this. Although the architecture is not terribly detailed, the texture alignment is near perfect.
** ** NOTE: Play this level with a source port such as ZDooM (on which it has ** been thoroughly play-tested). With DOOM2.EXE it will load up looking horrible, ** and may eventually crash with vis_plane errors. If you use ZDooM, please ** disable (or not use) the jump feature, as the level was not designed to ** allow jumping. ** ================================================================ Title : Fear Island Filename : FEAR_ISL.WAD Author : Gurkha Boy Email Address : <email removed> Other work from author : Pugilist.wad, a 3-level fist-only series set in WWII.

His work inspired me to try my hand at level design and editing. His continued encouragement and technical advice have been invaluable in helping me build DooM levels.

Editor(s) used : WadAuthor v1.30, an excellent utility. Build time : About 20 hours, a couple of which were spent in aligning all the textures (and Man! was that a pain in the butthocks). Known Bugs : None that I could find. Source port notes : This level was designed for ZDooM, but other source ports may work just as well. Please do not use the jump feature of ZDooM, as this would be cheating. * Copyright / Permissions * Authors may use this level as a base to build additional levels.
