Description : Well, it's been quite a journey.
Hordes of Chaos is finally done, with 25 maps.
HOC X has all 4 previously released HOCs, plus
the all new HOC 5.
HOC has been changed to HOC Death Edition.
It's got 2x the monsters and alot less health.
Good luck playing this one! :P
These maps are meant to be a challenge on
Skill 4. If you play on Skill 4 and die
miserably, don't be surprised. And don't
complain, either. Play it on Skill 3! :P
After each map your weapons and ammo are taken.
You get to keep your items. This is intentional.
Each map was taken from another project
and worked on considerably.
