They are small enough for 2-player deathmatch and large enough for single player. I took care to keep the levels simple enough so that slowdown won't occur, but there is plenty of detail and richness. The levels are non-linear, allowing for multiple strategies. There are many windows and ledges for sniping. ========================================================================= The difficulty levels determine how many and what type enemies there are. The difficulty levels also determine what types of weapons are available. This is useful for deathmatch, so you can choose what weapons to use. Here is a chart of difficulty levels and weapons available: Difficulty level 1 2 3 4 5 Weapons --- --- --- --- --- Pistol yes yes yes yes yes Shotgun yes yes yes yes yes SuperShotgun yes yes yes yes yes Chaingun no no yes yes yes Rocket Launcher no no yes yes yes Plasma Gun no no no yes* yes* BFG no no no yes* yes* * Plasma gun and BFG are available for multiplayer only, except for MAP03, which has the plasma gun, and MAP04, which has the BFG, for single as well as multiplayer. In other words, if you are single player at Ultra-Violent, you don't see the plasma gun until MAP03, and you don't see the BFG until MAP04. ========================================================================= For hints on how to win, I have provided an .lmp for each map that demonstrates starting out with a pistol at difficulty 4 (Ultra-Violent) and getting (almost) 100% of everything with no cheating. The .lmp's were recorded with DOOM ][ version 1.666. Here is a description of each level: MAP01 "Stonewall" - demo file stonewal.lmp The demons have built themselves a green stone building and intend to defend it vigorously. MAP02 "Neighbors" - demo file neighbor.lmp Real estate is cheap in this lovely neighborhood. Inspect the charming homes and swimming pool. Meet and greet your new neighbors after moving in. MAP03 "Catacombs" - demo file catacomb.lmp You'll need the plasma gun to get the archvile. The ledges are wide and easy to stay on, unless you get lifted into the air. MAP04 "Lift of death" - demo file lftofdth.lmp Try to get the monsters on the lift to fight eachother. The BFG and Chainsaw are gettable - see the .lmp for how. MAP05 "Blood Canyon" - demo file bldcanyn.lmp Best to fight from inside the mountain at first. You don't have to engage the cyberdemon to exit the level, but there are plenty of rockets and lots of maneuvering room in the canyon.
