This map is part of a mini series that I am working on. This is my fifth release. ;)
The series is called Blind Alley and will be about seven to ten levels.
They will all be released as singles and then combined once the series is finished.
My original design as map 14, now running on level 1.
"The Pit" was inspired by long.wad by Steve Long. File name longwad.zip.
Don't look for a theme on this one, I don't know if there is one.
I am pretty sure this place only exists in my mind. Artistic license used freely. ;)
A nice medium sized map with decent attention to detail.
You will never have for hunt for ammo in here. That is the least of your problems.
There is enough health and ammo that you can push as hard as you want for time, or
just lay back and snipe at the monsters. Nice to have the option isn't it?
I would love to see any lmp's done for the level. Feedback greatly appreciated.
I have been mapping for about five years. This is the fifth of my levels that I feel is OK
for release. It is a very fun map. Detail is nice, but the concentration here is on gameplay.
Some good old fashioned run and gun in here. Stay awake however, or you could get very dead.
I consider this map quite hard in UV. There are some nasty traps in here. This is the hardest of my levels to date.
Skill levels could come in handy until you learn the map.
A Legacy version 1.40 LMP is included in the zip file.
File name: BAEnm.lmp, The demo is a no monster walk through, showing the layout and the secrets. Use the demo if you get lost.
Use the following to play the demo.
c:\doom2\legacy.exe doom2.wad -file bndalye.wad -playdemo baenm
This assumes your doom2 folder is on your c: drive, and that you have the excellent, free,
Legacy port. Or you can run it from the Legacy Launcher.
Special thanks to my friend Rich Sham for providing a great Legacy version 1.40 max demo of this map.
To play his demo use the following:
c:\doom2\legacy.exe doom2.wad -file bndalye.wad -playdemo rsbae13
Or you can run it from the Legacy Launcher.
I whole heartedly recommend you watch the demo of the level before you play it. Unless you just love to die in the traps I have set for you.
Welcome to a world where UV really IS UV. This ain't your grandpa's Doom. Skill 3 is like old Doom UV. You decide if you want to step up.
There are also other excellent demos of this map at the following site:

What are you waiting for? Get busy kicking some monster butt.
