Names
Jumping Jack Flash
Description
My first try for a DM level (and the first published try at all!). It is small but has some obstacles ("Jumpin'") and many many teleports ("Flash") that teleport in a different way if you enter them in a different way. I designed the level with extensive jumping in mind, so you should play it with a source port capable of jumping high enough, or you'll find the level useless. If you are into fast fragging and telefragging, you should really give it a try. Tactics are important, too.

May Not Run With...     : Useless with a port not capable of jumping.
  Legacy seems not to be able to jump high 
                  enough. Making the jumps smaller would have 
                          made it too easy in ZDoom.

* A bit more about the level*

So what do you have expect from my first serious wad? 
Surely not overwhelming detail, although I think it is quite nice to 
look at. Design is pretty much square but allows to get to a certain 
point in the map in different ways. The teleports are plentiful. 
Be aware of Telefraggers and campers at respawn points. 
But if you get to know the level better you will see that it should 
be possible to get into the back of every camper. However, as camping 
is so dangerous in this level, I would regard it as legal, but 
decide for yourselves
There should be enough ammo for everyone. 
But there is only one MediKit, so be prepared to battle for it ;)
As this is my first serious wad, I need your input to get better.
So please tell me what you dislike. 
Oh, and the sounds: I like them, but they may be a bit strange...
