Description             : =OVERVIEW=
A large techbase map that I made a while ago but for some reason haven't been bothered to put the finishing touches on and upload until just now. Starts out pretty easy, becomes difficult later on. Most of the level is spent looking for the main switch which will gain you access to the front gate control on the compound wall (don't worry, you'll know the main switch when you see it) and then the final battle takes you from the main switch back to the front gate. I'm looking at this level now and wishing I'd made the architecture a little less square-ey, but as it is it's a decent map and I put a lot of effor into it so it should work well. 
                          After Hell's first invasion of the Earth was
                          thwarted, the great demon lord which had
                          commanded the infernal armies left vast tracts of
                          Hell destroyed in its death throes.  UAC, seeing
                          Hell's power weakened, seized the opportunity
                          and began establishing military outposts and
                          research compounds across Hell, with the
                          intention of controlling and ideally
                          exploiting the monsters they had battled.  Even
                          as they publicly announced the end of their
                          tampering with the forces of evil, UAC was
                          sending hundreds of thousands of Marines and
                          research personnel to Hell, assuming that they
                          would now be able to keep the remaining demons
                          under their heel.
                          Needless to say, this was a grave
                          The UAC had far underestimated Hell's ability
                          to rebuild, and within weeks hordes of demons
                          were at the gates of the UAC's compounds.  The
                          defense forces were overwhelmed, and before long
                          the bases were staffed only by savage monsters,
                          walking dead, and endless piles of corpses.
                          You, a lowly corporal in the Space Marines, had been
                          based at a strategic and well-defended outpost on the
                          edge of what was only weeks ago a valley of
                          rubble but what is now a thriving demon city.
                          The UAC had erected the compound fast, but
                          unfortunately the demons were faster, and after
                          valiant but hopeless resistance the monsters had
                          overrun the base. You are now the only living
                          human in the entire compound, and probably in all of
                          Hell.  With the researchers dead, your comrades
                          twisted into mindless monsters and UAC's plan
                          generally in the toilet, there is only one thing
                          you can do: get out of the base and find a way
                          back to Earth alive. Your chances of making it
                          out are slim, but then again you wouldn't be the
                          first person to escape from Hell. With this in
                          mind, you set out, with nothing but your pea
                          shooter, a few dozen rounds of ammo and your iron
                          will to live...
