Do whatever the hell you like with this. Curse it. Corrupt it.
Re-release it with bugs and say Chris Lloyd did it. I don't care.
The fourth moon of Orion 7 has been colonised for 12 years. The
previous civilisation, thought to have been extinct, emerged from
the desert 4 years ago. Human colonists originally built fortifications
against the aliens but the last messages received by Earth suggest
that they have converted to the religion of the ancient inhabitants
and are now armed against Earth.
You were passing through the system when your ship lost its hyper-drive.
Desperate for food and water, you teleport from your ship into
the highest sentry post of the main fortification. Armed with your
almost useless pistol, what else can you do except take a deep breath
and pray for..deliverance.
Level 1: Begin in a sentry tower overlooking the military ports. Fight
your way into the minor command centre, out into the holding area and
back inside to the blue door which leads to the teleporter.
Level 2: Begin on top of a building. You need to find your way to the
arena between the two buildings and teleport back to the sentry tower.
From there you can teleport to the monastery which holds the exit gate.
Level 3: Begin outside the holding area of level 1. Fight your way across
the lava pits to the inner complex. You need all three keys to eventually
gain access to the central place of worship. Follow the ventilation
tunnels to a show down with the Cyberdemon guarding the final exit gate.
Other wads by me:
insanity - INSANITY. The first wad I uploaded. It has some flaws but
it does feature the shrink ray, later put into Hotel Hell.
sh5 - SLAUGHTER HOUSE 5 (a sci-fi book by Kurt Vonnegut before he
became `serious'). Six levels but they are not that great.
I was just learning and experimenting with all sorts of ideas.
helhotel - HELL HOTEL. Only 1 level but now with its fourth release it is
almost flawless and a pretty excellent level. The highlight
of the level is a shrink ray! Check it out!
hongkong - HONGKONG HANDOVER CEREMONY. One big level. Lots of new
textures and sounds.
