Description : A bite-sized level for DOOM II.
This is a small, basic, city style level for all of those
doomers who are looking for a quick fix! Designed this
level for single play, but kept multiplay in mind. I hope
there is something here for everyone. Let me know what
Cheesy Doom story : Retirement at last! After years of serving the marines, you
finally bought that dream house and nice chunk of property.
Suddenly you notice the locals don't look so local any more.
In fact, they're down right demonic. It's happening again!
The demons have warped your once peaceful town into another
dimension. A dimension of hell. Now they're in your front
yard waving firearms at you. Time to dust off grampa's old
scatter guns above the fireplace, head into town, and take
'em out...one at a time! Later, you will need to access your
secret artillery facility which has been conveniently locked.
Your Mission: Save your town from certain doom by battling
your way to the almighty dimension portal.
