Description: This DOOM2, level 1 PWAD is the net result of playing and studying dozens of other levels. I incorporated all my favorite tricks and traps into this one, three key level.

WAOTD.WAD is designed as a mini-game, taking you from pistol to BFG 9000. All the bad guys are here as well as just enough power-ups and ammo to get you through the level. One of the frustrating aspects of this level is that each goal -- ending, keys, etc. are in plain sight -- but you have to deduce how to "get there from here" while fighting off the strategically place enemies. You need to be observant as well as vigilant, and there is a maze problem that will challenge you too.

I have included a demo file, HOW2.LMP, that shows the entire level played without cheating. It took me over 17 minutes to make it, and I know all the tricks! To view it be sure that WAOTD.WAD and HOW2.LMP are both unzipped into your DOOM2 sub-directory. Then use the following DOS command:

doom2 -file WAOTD.WAD -playdemo how2

This level should provide you with many hours of intense action!

Additional Credits to My kids, Megan, Joe, Mike and Steven who put in a lot of test-play time and helped me root out the bugs. I think we got them all. I will say that most of the "bugs" turned out to be problems with the DoomCad node builder, because after processing the wad with WARM 1.3 they disappeared.

It's a great map made in 1995. Perhaps it is a bit too dark at the start (the title is right) but however is fun. 5/5 -GGx

Starts off in a large dark hall with some lost souls; then there's some shooting with a titchy amount of ammo. I got annoyed with the chessboard teleport puzzle - one of the worst gameplay ideas ever - and after that there was a second teleport puzzle, so I deleted the thing with great pleasure.x
