Description             : As you battled through the levels of DOOM II
                          the imps regrouped to a new area and built
                          a breeding colony. This is characterised by 
                          being rather like a honeycomb with imps asleep
                          in many of the cells. They will, of course
                          wake up and attempt to waste you when you 
                          finally locate it... no simple task.
                          Your mission is to find the honeycomb, clear 
                          out the imps and make your way to the exit. 
                          You will need to solve many puzzles, locate 
                          several secrets and find not three skull keys, 
                          but four, to reach the end of the level. Are 
                          you up to it? If you don't believe it can be 
                          done watch the demo which Chris recorded in UV !

                          A special thank you to Chris Christensen who 
                          provided invaluable help with WinTex, gave me 
                          the encouragement to finish this WAD off and
                          in the end made a significant contribution to 
                          the design. Chris also created the opening screen, 
                          improved the structure and gameplay of the WAD and 
                          then recorded the UV demo ! (Pause's in the demo are
                          due to lighting up cigarettes or opening up beers!)

                          Finally, to Mike Reed, whose superb WAD of The 
                          Hoover Dam inspired me to learn how to create
                          DOOM worlds - thanks Mike!

Known Bugs              : Ok, here's a quote from Chris... 'Because this 
                          is a massive, ass-kickin, pushed to the limits 
                          level, you must do a little house-cleaning before
                          you save in UV mode. The savegame buffer is tight !
                          But hey, real men don't need no stinkin' save 
                          game. Right !' So there !! 
                          In fact it will save from the off, but may crash
                          your PC when you return to DOS if you do. Other 
                          than this there are no known bugs of any kind.
