Description : My first try for a DM level (and the first
published try at all!). It is small but has
some obstacles ("Jumpin'") and many many
teleports ("Flash") that teleport in a
different way if you enter them in a
different way. I designed the level with
extensive jumping in mind, so you should
play it with a source port capable of
jumping high enough, or you'll find the
If you are into fast fragging and
telefragging, you should really give it a
try. Tactics are important, too.

Legacy seems not to be able to jump high

* A bit more about the level*
So what do you have expect from my first serious wad?
Surely not overwhelming detail, although I think it is quite nice to
look at. Design is pretty much square but allows to get to a certain
point in the map in different ways. The teleports are plentiful.
Be aware of Telefraggers and campers at respawn points.
But if you get to know the level better you will see that it should
be possible to get into the back of every camper. However, as camping
is so dangerous in this level, I would regard it as legal, but
decide for yourselves
There should be enough ammo for everyone.
But there is only one MediKit, so be prepared to battle for it ;)
As this is my first serious wad, I need your input to get better.
So please tell me what you dislike.
Oh, and the sounds: I like them, but they may be a bit strange...
