About This File

This is one of the largest single level pwads in existance. The general setting is a wide-open city with many large buildings. The level is actually divided into 5 sections, each with a different purpose. The first is your main base, where the players start. This contains most weapons and a fair bit of power-ups. The second is a small central region which is used to gain access to the remaining three city-like areas. These must be opened in sequential order with keycards. The first main area is given the theme of fire, the second being water, and the third being earth. Basically, this level could also be called Elementl.wad as well. To beat this level you must defeat the Cyber-Boss, as well as a horde of other monsters.

It actually dates from March 1995, and so the claim to being "one of the largest single level PWADs in existence" is perhaps reasonable, although it's not large either by modern standards or objectively. It's a fairly dull, disjointed level of the period, unexceptional.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
