Golachab
Description
Golachab is a challenging single-player Doom 2 level (with difficulty levels supported for those who want a casual playthrough), intended for Boom compatible ports (tested in PrBoom+ complevel 9). The main inspiration was the fight up the hillside after the blue-key door in "Hillside Siege" from Alien Vendetta, and the start was inspired by some of the fast starts in Surge and some of Joshy's maps from Speed of Doom's second episode. Even though I've been screwing around with level editors for various FPS games for a decade now (mostly Unreal and Doom), this is the first time I've ever made something I felt was good enough to actually finish and publicly release; hopefully it's more enjoyable than most first maps!

Additional Credits to   : I owe a huge thanks to my playtesters. Without
                          these people, both from Doomworld and from other
                          places on the internet, this would not have been
                          nearly as good:
                          
                          Demon of the Well: Without his advice on how to
                          tweak the fights and how to set up the red key
                          trap, this likely would have not ended up being
                          fun to play. His finding of lots of little
                          texture bugs and advice on placing decorations
                          also helped the map's visuals greatly. Also, he
                          gets credit for getting me into Doom in the first
                          place back in 2004.
                          
                          Joshy: If this map's visuals can be talked about
                          as "aesthetics" instead of "assthetics", it's
                          because he pretty much taught me how to do
                          texturing and architecture in Doom that doesn't
                          look entirely awful. In addition, the entire
                          ending scenario was inspired by his comments.
                          
                          Antipathy: His magical coward powers were a huge
                          help in finding and eliminating exploits in
                          fights all over the map.
                          
                          
                          Mike Lowell: His comments were quite helpful for
                          tweaking "Hey, Not Too Rough" difficulty.
