Description            : After a weekend of R&R, you return to your base to 
find your unit has not returned from routine 
maneuvers on Mars. Upon checking in with your CO, you 
find him a changed person. He only mumbles, "Despair, 
Despair, Why did it have to be Despair." Your 
comrades had been sent to pay a routine visit to 
OCP's genetics and physics lab knicknamed "Despair" 
because of its remote location Grabbing your sidearm, 
you head for the hanger to begin your search for the 
fate of your comrades.

This is my first complete level, so please bear this

level.  Modify the batch file with -skill # as you 
please. Otherwise, choose New Game, Shores of Hell, 
and the skill level you prefer and play thru as
