Internet whose names are too many to list.
Description : Nostromo's Run takes place in an isolated station
aboard some alien planet. The base was used for
fighter training and mutant entertainment and
features a large arena. Humans were being brought
to this pleasure ground for the mutants amusement.
As a specially skilled warrior, your assignment is
as follows: You will be teleported into the cellar
of the main complex. You (and any you wish to have
join you) are to clean out the complex of all
mutants. Our intelligence sources state that the
area is literally infested with all kinds of
cretins so your mission will be a tough one.
Ultimately, you should make your way to the arena;
a large open area of which no human has escaped.
Our sources also say that getting to the arena is
no easy task. The base includes a large maze that
can be quite confusing with shifting floors. But,
I know that with your special training, you can
Nostromo's Run took me a year to complete and it's
my first wad. I put so much time and energy into
it that, at the time, I did not believe that I
would be making a sequel. But because of the
stupendous feedback I've received over the last
few months, I've begun building a Nostromo's Run
II and more sequeals are now in the planning
stages. See details below on the Nostromo's Run
Thanks for checking it out and I hope you like it.
Feedback greatly appreciated

You may incorporate any ideas and/or sections of the wad into your own
designs as long as you mention that I had a part it in. Due to its size
(over 300k), it may run sluggish on some machines. My suggestion...upgrade.
If you have any suggestions on improvements, let me know. I'd certainly
be willing to consider a future version although, at this point, I don't
know what I'd change.
