Description             : Actually, I have worked on this WAD for 7
                          months. It doesn't mean that I was adding something
                          every day during this period of time. Nope. But I
                          was returning back to editing when something came
                          to mind. Firstly, it's one-map WAD. I really like
                          this map and I am not sure if I could come up with
                          something interesting for map #2 and, actually, I
                          don't really want to. But I can definitely say that
                          building and editing was incredibly exciting, but
                          hard... honestly. If you have passed thousands of
                          other WADs, this one wouldn't seem special to you,
                          I believe so. However, if you are a casual doomer
                          or a person who plays for fun, you will get a lotta
                          fun here! 
                          Okay, now about features. I added 10 - 11 new
                          monsters, which are either hard or frickin hard.
                          Well, they are easy to be killed, but they can
                          easily kill you as well. Look through the list of
                          hints below, it is helpful. I also painted gloves
                          covered with blood to different weapons (at least I
                          tried hard, hah), and I hope they look good. No new
                          weapons, they always have bugs and I simply don't
                          like them. No doubt, a lot of sounds were replaced:
                          shooting, monsters, music, etc. Speaking about
                          style - it's not like a vanila doom WAD. I believe
                          it's something like modern shooters. However, I
                          believe this style fits in this game. Do I rate
                          this WAD as one of my greatest projects? I do, for
                          sure. It doesn't include a lot of maps or stories,
                          but the atmosphere and the whole look itself
                          attracts me. Finally, it's true - I spent a large
                          load of time on it. That's why I hope you will
                          enjoy it. Anyway, I will be glad to receive a
                          - Always watch your back when you press a switch.
                          - Don't fight face-to-face against special ops
                          (dudes with red circle on helmets).
                          - Use strafe while shooting. Especially, when you
                          fight against hard monsters.
                          - Mind your health. You can lose it easily and
                          that's for real.
                          - Don't let quadshot soldiers (they look like
                          DoomGuy but black) come close to you, their shotgun
                          is damn powerful.
                          - Don't forget about savings. Despite I added
                          auto-saving points, you really have to be careful.
                          - Never ever fight against tanks face-to-face.
                          Rocket-tank will destroy you in a while. Use the
                          strategy hide-shoot-hide. Their rockets and plasma
                          are very fast (or even with homing, not sure).
                          - Try to get 100% kills, items and secrets. C'mon,
                          that's one map WAD... finish it honorably.
                          - Don't jump out of the window (you will understand
                          which one) if you didn't find all the secrets and
                          you still want to discover them. There is only one
  (the last one) after you jump off the window.
                          - The door which closes the exit room will open
                          automatically, don't panic.
  - You will need the jump button, you must have it 
  to pass the level. So, bind it.
  - I recommend you to enable the free-look.
    - Always check your map to find all the secret rooms
                          - Don't give up! This map is worth to be passed.
