Misc. Author Info : I would like to remain a mystery :-)
Description : This level is basically a large arena where you
get to test your skills against all the monsters,
and very large amounts of them too. It's meant to
be completed without saving, but you probably
have to train and try different tactics before
you manage that. The order in which different
monsters are released is very non-linear, and you
need to find the order that works best for you.
This gives the level an element of strategy.
Unless you play at the easy difficulty settings,
you will not get enough ammo to kill everyone
yourself, so you need to get the monsters to kill
each other. This is everyones fight against
everyone else. Will you be the survivor?
Note that the level is located on map29 (to get
the right sky and music). Run with -warp 29, or
use the cheat IDCLEV29.
Additional Credits to : Everyone making good Doom levels for me to play!

Dehacked/BEX Patch : No
Demos : No
Other : No
Other files required : No
* Play Information *
Game : DOOM 2
Map # : MAP29 <--NB!
Single Player : Yes
Cooperative : Yes. Special care taken and extra sectors added to
make sure it works, but it is still possible to get
stuck in multiplayer. Just make sure everybody knows
the level in advance, and it should be great fun!
Deathmatch : Yes, but not made for it. See above.
Difficulty Settings : Yes. Intended to be played on "Hurt me plenty". The
easier levels have almost as many monsters, but much
more health and ammo, good for practice. UV is for
the experts who want an extra challenge.
* Construction *
Base : New level from scratch
Build Time : What little spare time I've had during the last
Editor(s) used : WadAuthor, bsp
Known Bugs : None, but read the next line...
May Not Run With... : The level is testet with zdoom and prboom. Because it
has a lot of things on screen at once, it's not a good
idea to use the original doom2.exe. Also, if you
release all the monsters at once, zdoom will crash with
a page fault (at least it does so for me).
