About This File

It is the future. Man has polluted the atmosphere to the point where we can no longer safely breathe it. Large, floating atmospheric reprocessors have been created to help repair the atmosphere. It will be a long process. A few years after the "skybases" went online, mankind got a big wakeup call. Our first (and maybe our last) alien encounter has happened. The alien race (thier names are unknown) have intercepted our transmissions that we make in every day life (TV, radio, ...) and have learned our communications, technology, languages, and our plight. But rather than help out, they would rather have the planet for thier own! You see, the atmosphere is perfect for them, so why not let us die out. They destroyed all but one reprocesor. The remaining reprocessor has been reverse engineered to cause more harm to our atmosphere. This must be stopped. Listening to thier transmissions, and logging into the skybase mainframe (for some reason, they didn't prohibit that), we have learned that many people who died on the skybase have been electronically ressurected to help serve them. Also, many traps have been set for anyone who tries to land and "be the hero". Luckily they weren't prepared for you! Your mission is to kick ass and shutdown/disable the base. As you circle the base in your shuttle, you see them laughing at you. Good ...underestimation allowed David to beat Goliath. Make the fuckers pay!!!

Very good map. Claustrophobic and mazy as a skybase should be. Maybe a bit too easy, but it shows some really nice ideas. 4/5

This is too funny. I was searching for my image in Google just to see what would turn up. Imagine my surprise when I came across a screenshot from this wadfile. I made this soooo long ago, and only ever gave it to one person. I guess it got around. I'm glad you enjoyed it. It was a blast to make. My intent was to see what kind of tricks I could come up with that I hadn't seen before. At the time, nobody could pull off a sky texture for both the floor and ceiling. Probably old-hat now.

This is dated September 1997. It's by Terence Burns, and was his only level. It's not bad - the layout and design are attractive. There's lots of action, but one big flaw - too many fiddly, unintuitive flick-switchy hidden-door puzzles (the yellow key, the bit after the falling corridor). The action is relatively simple, with lots of ammo, loads of health. There are some nice "electrical machine" bits. When I played it the ending went wrong - the cyber got stuck.

This is the best sky base type map Ive ever played. Great story but this looks like it couldn't took place where this is a sky station on Jupiter or any Gas Giant where the sky base station was attacked by the alien force. But yeah I guess that's something I could just imagine when I'm fooling around in the map. :/ Awesome piece of work!! 5/5

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
