Misc. Author Info       : My first released Doom2 wad.
                          I have previously made several wads
                          for Doom1, a Heretic wad and an un-
                          released deathmatch wad for Doom2.
                          PLEASE TELL ME HOW YOU LIKED THIS WAD!
                          Because if you liked it, I might
                          make a sequel or two (or even
                          Demos (v1.9) would be highly appreciated.

Description             : The Allied suspect that the Nazis
                          are developing a nightmarish army
                          of creatures that once were humans
                          but have now been biologically
                          twisted into inhuman abominities.
                          There have been rumors of mindless
                          cyborg soldiers equipped with
                          flame-throwers and worse things...
                          You, Captain Blackheart, were sent
                          to explore the hidden laboratory
                          of the mad Doctor Mangler, but
                          his inhuman servitors took you
                          by surprise. You have been captured
                          and taken to the infamous Castle
                          H”llenstein where torture awaits
                          you - - - maybe you will even
                          become one of Mangler's inhuman
                          troopers yourself. Unless you
                          escape. You defeated the nazi
                          trooper that had come to bring
                          you some water with your bare
                          fists, and you have got his
                          handgun, but now are locked up
                          in the prison cell again... and
                          there is no way out except the
                          locked door... no secret doors
                          or anything. What next? If you
                          fail to escape and continue your
                          mission, Dr. Mangler's fiendish
                          troops will surely kick some Allied
                          ass for good!

        Wad files included:
                        d2esc.wad - The actual map
                        nazisnd.wad - Has some new sound effects
                                        (the soldier wake-up sounds
                                         and death sounds, plus the
                                         wake-up sound of the level 30
                                         final enemy, although the last
                                         is not used in d2esc.wad).
There was also a graphics patch but I had to 
remove it due to copyright reasons... :-<

* Play Information *

Episode and Level #     : Doom II Map01
Single Player           : Yes, but it's pretty damn hard! Although the
                          toughest monsters in the wad are mere Revenants
                          and Mancubi, Castle H”llenstein is filled with
                          _evil_ traps. In fact, my brother (who used to
                          play Doom1 one episode at a time at UV _without_
                          saving) gave up his first attempt to complete
                          the level after barely surviving the third trap
                          and dying to the fourth. Even if you survive
                          the traps, there is a room just before the
                          exit (with the exit signs) that turned out
                          to be considerably more difficult than I
                          had intended it (you'll know it when you
                          see it... spectres and revenants and stairs
                          in a small room, a pillar in the middle).
Cooperative 2-4 Player  : Yes, has a few more monsters and weapons,
                          and one player starts OUTSIDE the locked cells
Deathmatch 2-4 Player   : Deathmatch starting points are there, but
                          the map has not been optimized for DM playing.
                          Plays better in Co-op mode.
Difficulty Settings     : More monsters for tougher difficulty levels.
                          Has been completed on UV, although it isn't
                          easy in Single player mode.
New Sounds              : Yes! Use nazisnd.wad to get some truly 'original'
                          nazi exclamations.
New Graphics            : There WAS but I had to remove them :-<
New Music               : Not this time, sorry.
Demos Replaced          : None

                                Voice Edit 2.0 (it sucks! But it's the best
