Misc. Author Info : The author of this wad works in a movie theater,
so getting the chance to wield a shotgun in one
of his own design was a form of therapy for him.
This is my first level.
Description : All your buddies have gone to the movies and
they've taken all the heavy weaponry with them!
This level is designed as your average modern day
movie theater, with a few twists. Run through
your local cinema blasting all those annoying
patrons in your way, demanding that they decrease
the popcorn prices. Your buddies are in there,
dead or alive. Can you find them and the weapons
they brought with them? Good luck!
Level notes : This level is big with lots of stuff. It will run
slowly on slow computers. I tried to design it to
be difficult, but not impossible, with the theory
that lots of killin' is a good thing.
Misc. : My original design of this level was much more
complex, but I had trouble rebuilding the nodes
when it got too large. I have only seen one wad
file that was larger than this one
(significantly) but I don't know how it was done.
If anyone has any info regarding this please let
me know. A PIECE OF ADVICE TO PROSPECTIVE WAD
BUILDERS. You might want to keep your creative
urges in check enough that you don't make your
levels too big, this one gave me many headaches.
