=========================================================================== Title : GAMBLER.WAD Date Finished : 4/15/96 Author : Draggon Email Address : <email removed> Other Files By Author : DESTINY1.WAD (Doom I), TELE_ME.WAD (Doom ][) Misc. Author Info : Whatta ya wanna know?!? Description : So, you're still looking for WAD's after 2 years of DOOM ][, eh? If that's the case, then you are probably looking for quality, since you've no doubt had your fill of crappy ones. Do you like your textures aligned? You got it. Do you like consistent, smooth transitions between areas? You got it. Do you like fast-flowing DeathMatches that include all the weapons, very little health, just enough ammo, and a few tele-frags? You got it. Do you hate BFG overload, megaspheres, soul spheres, cheap spawn frags, etc? You got it, sort of... Lemme explain: With a cursory glance at this wad you will see 3 BFG's, 3 soul spheres, Combat Armor, etc. and you will think, "Geez, not another one of those!". BUT, this one is different. All of these items save one BFG are out of the players' reach until one guy gets desperate and wants to gamble. You see, when you go after the one accessible BFG, pedestals with the other goodies come down in different areas of the map. You are gambling, because you never know what your enemies are going to obtain, if anything! This system really works well to provide a balanced, and unpredictable match. In regard to telefrags, the main battleground of this WAD is an outdoor arena with three large structures, each with 1 passthru tunnel that acts as a teleport to the ledge that encircles the arena. The teleports are activated only after entering the tunnel, so if you enter and quickly hit reverse, you will teleport to a different part of the ledge than the guy that enters and passes straight through. The guy hoping for a tele-frag in this case has a 50/50 chance (greater if he is a keen observer with quick reflexes) of fragging his prey. Again, a gamble. Hope you decide to try it, it's a blast!
