The best thing about these levels is they're fairly straight-forward. That is there's no find the key, spend 20 minutes looking for where to use it, 20 seconds of death-dealing, find a secret switch and so on. That's not to say that this kind of level doesn't have its place, it does, but i don't design that. I've had enough of that from DOOM II. These levels (i think) are original. I haven't really played anything like them. Anyway, please see what you think, and let me know. NOTE: The above email address is mine only until the end of '95.

You were one of the unlucky ones, you weren't killed. Trying to rid that sector of Caco- demons was useless, and you knew it. Command HQ knew better and sent you in at the head of a bunch of inexperienced soldiers, most of them useless. All are dead. Except one who was captured. You. They've got you bricked up in a small room. You thought you had an idea why. After you found the pistol there you knew why. Rumors had infiltrated back to base that the Cacodemons liked to play soldier bating with any captured soldiers. You know what's in store. A feeling wells up in your gut you know to be fear. You look at the tiny weapon in your hand and groan. You'll be lucky to take out one. All is lost. You wait for death. Visions of those red bastards killing killing killing roar through your mind, slowly enraging you to accept the inevitable. Surfacing through these thoughts of death, however, is another thought, revenge. Not with a pistol. You'd walk through hell for a shotgun. Maybe you will... NOTE:- Level 3 is a bit more unprofessional than the rest. It originally was a DOOM level. It's good however. SO PLAY IT!! Play them all. You'll feel better. HINTS:- (1) Play at least skill 3 (2) DON'T CHEAT!!!! (3) There is no third hint (4) Or fourth Additional Credits to : Queen, liFe, tHE UniVerSE ANd EverYthiNg 1+1================================================================2 * Play Information * Game : DOOM II Level # : 1, 2, 3 ,4 Single Player : Yes Cooperative 2-4 Player : Yes, 4 players, but i haven't tested it Deathmatch 2-4 Player : No Difficulty Settings : Kind of, settings 1 & 2 i used for playtesting so there ain't much there in some parts. Boring New Sounds : No New Graphics : No New Music : No Demos Replaced : Err, i didn't have time to find something to let me replace the demos, i have however included a separate demo of level 1 if you get stuck. To run it get in your DOOM2 directory and type: doom2 -file <path of WAD dir>\higher.wad -playdemo level1.lmp at the prompt. If you keep your WADs in the DOOM2 directory, then u can omit the WAD path. I think you have to have the lmp's (demos) in your DOOM2 directory. If any1 would be so good as to let me know how to add lmp's to a wad i'd be very happy * Construction * Base : New level from scratch Editor(s) used : DoomCad 5.1 Known Bugs : Level 4 rarely crashes with a RMapPlane<?> error. Dunno why. Maybe its cos i have ceiling heights of over 10000. * Copyright / Permissions * Authors MAY use these levels as a base to build additional levels. Dunno why you'd wanna do that.
