WHERE TO GET THIS WAD:-
I'm not an Internet junky, so I really don't know. But if you're
reading this why do you need to know?
AND NOW THE REALLY INTERESTING BIT:-
If like me you enjoy reading the miscellaneous text attached to
some wads then carry on reading. If you just want to have a go
as a single player then copy the PWAD into your DOOM2 directory
and type "DOOM2 -FILE GETOFF.WAD".
You deathmatch bods may want to read on.
The idea for this wad came to me while drinking a particularly
sweet cup of tea one lunchtime (sugar you see). Having played
a crippling number of pwads in my time, pausing only to wipe
the blood from my eyes, it occurred to me that you never find
one where each player gets his/her own patch to defend for the
duration of the deathmatch. You've found one now!
The wad is designed to work best as a four player match. Each
player starts outside an (apparently) identical building, each
with its own well stocked armoury. Once inside you defend your
turf! If you're killed you get the opportunity to open the door
directly in front of where you reappear and check whether the
building is where you originally started (they're numbered
conspicuously 1-4). If it isn't, leap off the platform into the
water and run up the tunnel. The area where you teleport to has
four further teleports numbered 1-4. Get the idea?
Of course if you prefer you can use these teleports to mount a
surprise attack on your opponents' buildings!!!
To add a little spice to the proceedings, each building has a
couple of unique hidden areas which offer advantages over the
other three. Players in buildings 1 & 3 should watch their
backs; those armouries aren't as secure as they first seem!
Oh, I nearly forgot. There IS an exit (I hate pwads without an
exit - the ritual humiliation of the frag count is essential)
but because I'm a stickler for texture alignment it's well
hidden. For those who don't want to know where it is skip this

As far as monsters are concerned, I placed quite a few in here
for single players. The difficulty here is that players can
access any area in any order, and this meant it was impossible
to design a blast-fest finale! To make up for this the monsters
are fairly thick on the ground whichever path you take, so mind
how you go. It's not the toughest wad I've played but it is
In deathmatch mode I recommend you set the -NOMONSTERS command
parameter. When it came down to it all I wanted to do was blow
my friends' heads off, you know it makes sense!
Okay that's enough. Have fun, and if you have any comments bung
them to my mate's E-mail address. I'll reply to everybody.

us a line. What an awesome wad you've got! Every session we
have starts with LEVEL.WAD. What a blast!
