* Gameplay Hints *
Ammo is scarce in the beginning. It's time to hone your chainsaw skills to
stay alive. Anything less than a cacodemon should be sawed or you'll run
out of ammo for the tough guys. Make it to the first (yellow) door and ammo
will become more abundant. (as will the monsters!) As always...save often.
