Author Info : I like Doom! Other WADS by Author : None. This is my first upload, more to come! Description : A bite-sized level for DOOM II. This is a small, basic, city style level for all of those doomers who are looking for a quick fix! Designed this level for single play, but kept multiplay in mind. I hope there is something here for everyone. Let me know what you think! Cheesy Doom story: Retirement at last! After years of serving the marines, you finally bought that dream house and nice chunk of property. Suddenly you notice the locals don't look so local any more. In fact, they're down right demonic. It's happening again! The demons have warped your once peaceful town into another dimension. A dimension of hell. Now they're in your front yard waving firearms at you. Time to dust off grampa's old scatter guns above the fireplace, head into town, and take 'em out...one at a time! Later, you will need to access your secret artillery facility which has been conveniently locked. Your Mission: Save your town from certain doom by battling your way to the almighty dimension portal.
