Misc. Author Info       : 18 Year old doomer from Poland. Just a normal boy who spends a lot of time with Doom.

Description             : Your mission was supposed to be simple. Just some checking, some monitoring, who couldn't take care of that? Naturally they've chosen You after You screwed up Your last assignment and some important files were stolen from the computer at the UAC HQ on Earth.. You don't know what was that, they don't let their soldiers know that kind of stuff. So they decided to give You a light assignment-You are sent to one of the remote planets, outside of our solar system- Loina 5. The planet is a cold mass of rocks and swamps. During the long terraforming procees many brilliant scientists lurk in the labs in the outposts to monitor every little bit of change of the weather.. but not You. You just sit in some old outpost no one gives a damn about and just watch some stuff, day after day. Life couldn't get worse... or could it? One bloody night Your outpost is assaulted by unknown creatures. You ran to the comm tower to call for help, send an SOS, anything.. but no response. Something interfered the comm equipment. There was no hope for You. They killed You.
One morning, You wake up. Are You a ghost? Nope, You've got Your body, a bit dirty, but You're alive. Where the heck are You? What brought You back to life? What is this button? Who is responsible for this all, what is this place? Time to answer some questions and blow couple butts off.

Another one of my old levels. This one is a bit younger than the others released, since It shows I was starting to learn ACS :). The setting is an old abandoned castle in some rocky landscape. I was kept in inspiration by Qdoom when making this (hence the bridges), and I simply love the misty-erious atmosphere of rocky swamps. Gameplay is pretty easy, no one should struggle as long as they find the Rocket Launcher. The beginning was purely inspired by d2m07-Dead Simple. The wad is rather short, but entertaining. As always-enjoy.
