Title : Dark Temple

Misc. Author Info: This is my third pwad (build time=approx. 36 hours),
the second to be publically released. I'd appreciate any constructive
feedback on this level. If you like this pwad or my first pwad,
Crchaos.wad, I have a Doom2 Deathmatch-only level coming soon. Check
my Web pages for info about the level and/or me.
Description: I would provide you with a little story to set the
atmosphere, but you don't really need one for Doom :) This is a large
level designed and tested for solo play (however, deathmatch and coop.
starts are also provided). The level represents, as its name suggests,
a temple, Doom-style. It features varied and sometimes monumental
architecture, a number of tricks and traps, and, of course, plenty of
gratuitous violence. As with my other pwads, equal attention was given
to both design/graphics and playability. I tried to make this feel as
"professional" as possible. Enjoy!
