Description : This is a real fun wad and tough!
In UV you open to 15 archviles and three
berserk packs. You control the game and see
them one at a time if your smart! There are
interesting areas throughout - watch for
traps! Plenty of challenges but fair.
This wad also uses gothictx.wad for some
beautiful textures - see credits below.
Additional Credits to : My son (Rich) for all the help on textures
and playtesting and the UV lmp.
My friends (Warlock) for spotting an archvile
problem and (John Blackburn) for playtesting
and the (-fast GM) lmp.
Many thanks to the Gothic Crew for the textures.
My wife (with love)!
id Software and the Deep team.
