Description : Sequel to "Out of Phase" - two maps done in the
same style! These were based loosely on two of
my Speedmaps, but even if you've played those
before, you'll notice that a lot has been
changed - these are not the same maps!
Like in my first "Out of Phase", these maps also
use the _METAL1_ doors, and the dark corridors
with bright lights at the intersection :)
A New Year Release!

* Additional Information *
Gameplay Info : Skill 1 is very easy, Skill 3 is action
packed, and Skill 4 is harder than the
first "Out of Phase".
Gameplay is less linear this time - there
are interconnected passageways so you can
experiment with different ways of playing
There are 8 DM starts in each level.
Some more weapons and items have been
added for that. But I tested it without
the extras in Skulltag. Anyway, I think
Deathmatch should be fun in these levels,
