Description : Much Different from the last three maps, this one involves
a system of labs and experiments that someone(the people of
Artica I'd assume)have done with a few monsters. These people,
who you will soon find out were highly advanced technologicaly,
have figured out ways to brainwash some of the demons so they
will help you out. Sadly this plot never got finished because
the monsters destroyed all the inhabitants before the plan could
be fully executed. Also the Articans found a gateway to the
monsters dimension(aka Hell)but anyone who has tried to go there
hasn't come back. They have also harnessed the ability to teleport,
something thought to be a Hellspawn only ability. They have also
trapped some of the monsters so they are of no danger. Of course
you don't know what switch will let something loose that's pretty
pissed off for being captured in the first place.
Additional Credits to : id Software for Doom, Lee Killough for Boom and MBF, TeamTNT for
Boom, Linguica for part of the Dehacked patch and some new graphics,
Valve for Half-Life, a source of much inspiration, and Ricrob for
beta testing and sticking this here map on his page.
* Play Information *
Game : MBF.exe and doom2.wad
Compatibility : If you want to use Boom or PRBoom you'll have to extract the
Dehacked patch from the wad, and even then the map will still
be screwed. ZDoom will run it becuase it recognises the DEHACKED
lump but it still will be screwed. Any other port is just plain bad.
