Advanced engine needed : Anything other than normal Doom 2 (Boom recommended)

Description : Really big, really detailed level for Doom 2. The
Axix is a tech base built by UAC for research and
development. Unfortunately, it seems that some
teleporter tests screwed up and now a portal is
opened to some demonic temple. Your job? Clear
the Axix of all demons, and find your way to the
Temple. Once there, find a way to close the portal.
Simple. Just try not to die....

* Tips and notes *
As said before, this level will not run with regular (vanilla) Doom 2. Although
it has no boom-specific features, I highly recommend Boom to use playing it. You
COULD use ZDoom or other engine, but this level is designed keeping in mind the
restrictions of vanilla Doom, like no jumping or looking up or down.
As far as gameplay goes, this level is designed to be played in Ultra-Violence.
But, it has all difficultys implemented. It's just that I spent hours balancing
everything perfectly for an engaging exerience in Ultra. Be prepared.
Here are some tips for playing the level:
1. You are given a chainsaw early on. Use it whenever you can to conserve ammo.
2. SAVE OFTEN. There's plenty of nasty traps which can kill you rather quickly.
3. There's a boss fight at the end. Just thought you'd like to know.
