Information about level * I have tried to keep this level interesting while keeping it compact so that it is good for single player and muli-player games. I've found that a lot of good single player levels are too spread out for deathmatch games and you spend most of your time trying to find anyone to FRAG. All the items necessary to finish the level are present, so don't try and tell me otherwise. The level has been significantly play tested and there seem to be no bugs. * Key tips * There are usually two ways out of places. Things are not always what they seem. Use your map - sometimes it can be helpful. Preserve your ammunition. *** To EXIT THE LEVEL press on the Gate to Hell! *** * Prolog * Life has been hectic for the six months since you returned from your venture into the jaws of Satan. You were given a heros welcome on your return to Earth, although your sudden appearance in the middle of the busy Y59 interstate at peak hour caused a few minor headaches. Some wierd computer software company even created a game about your exploits in deep space! - everything went wild. Finally it was starting to die down, especially since you moved house ten times just to get away from the crank callers, and the people looking for you to autograph their favourite gun. Your mind is off on some other track when you are suddenly snapped back to reality by a knock on your front door. Great, you think, probably abother crank come to call. You walk up to the door and peer through the peep hole, only to see there is no-one there. You open the door to see if you can catch a glimpse of the brat that knocked on your door, give him a piece of the action when you hit the Bezerk packs! Opening the door you are suprised to find an old man standing in front of you. "Yes", you ask, "can I do something for you?" "I am Lucifer" the old man croaks. "Yeah, and I'm Madonna's right buttock, go away old man." "You dare to mock the Master of Hell! Hold your tongue fool, or you will be holding it." "Look, I appreciate that you have probably seen my face on TV, and that you think you'll come and scare me, but, unfortunately for you buddy, I've been to Hell once, I saw it all, I kicked all their demonic arses to Heaven and back, so chew on that." The old man smiles, but his teeth don't look that attractive, he seems to have a set of teeth that a shark would be proud of. Quietly at first he starts to emit a rather guttural growl that even a Bear couldn't beat, and his eyes glow red, burning so bright that you still seem them when you blink. Again he speaks, but this time it isn't the voice of a weak old man. "I know what you did! I saw it all, you did not go to Hell, Hell is a place where no living human could ever survive." "What about my first marriage then?" you ask Lucifer. "Silence you fool. Your insolence is to be punished. Jehova will not be your saviour this time. I will make you kneel down at the Gates to Hell." "O.K, but only if I can meet Elvis." Lucifer (yeah, it is him you realise, either that, or someone with a lot of free time), reaches into his pocket and pulls out a service issue pistol. He hands it to you and says "I have no desire for you to die without first having tried to beat my army of darkness. This pistol should be enough to see you through, oh, about 3 of them." He breaks into a very hearty, demonic laugh (how else would it sound?) "You know I'm going to toast them all again." You say to him. "No", he says, "this time they have all the weapons and the ammunition, and you have nothing! Before you make it to the Gates of Hell you will need to find your way through my castle of tricks. Live short and don't prosper!" Everything becomes dark, then suddenly you materialise in what seems to be a high walled court yard, already filled with some Lucifer's army. You grit your teeth and think 'It's time to go to work'..... * Epilogue * Well, you stand on the far side of the Gate of Hell and think.. so much for that challenge, and what about that piss weak gate! You think Lucifer definately needs to get a perspective on what he is talking about! Suddenly Lucifer materialises before you, this time he isn't an old man, and he is floating in mid air ("Neat trick!" you think). "Now that you have made it to the Gates of Hell, you will have to fight to gain freedom to your pathetic Earth. Now you must do battle in the catacombs that make up the subterranea of my castle."
