Description : Your on vacation on Antares 3, sitting by the
pool drinking Martian beer and watching the
latest in scratch and sniff holoporn from Earth.
A bellboy walks over and hands you a phone. It's
Central Command. It seems the UAC boys at the
Phobos1 research lab have been screwing around
again and now they have a situation their
security forces can't handle.
The last report received from the facility
indicated that the base had been overrun and that
the enemy had begun to make "modifications". A
UAC strike team which had been sent in have not
been heard from since they landed.
Your Orders: Proceed immediately to Phobos...
Rendevous with your team in orbit....
Your Mission: Regain control of Phobos1 at all
Everything was normal as you boarded the drop-
ship. Reentry went smoothly and you were cruising
30,000 feet above the surface of Phobos, heading
for the base. Your buddy nudges you and asks you
to jerk his finger. You're just about to oblige
when suddenly the ship lurches. An explosion,
screams, then the lights go out....
You wake up in a pile of smoking debris. You're
glad to be alive. Unfortunately, your buddies
haven't been so lucky. You see the lights of
Phobos1 in the distance.
It's all up to you now....
Additional Comments : This is my first Doom level, but I think I did a
pretty good job. It's large, but it runs well
even on my slowest machines. I hadn't intended it
to make it this big but the more I worked on it,
the more it seemed to take on a life of its own.
It's been extensively play-tested and while it is
difficult, it can be completed without cheats.
I've done it several times and I'm not the worlds
best Doomer (yet).<g> Best of all, it saves!
Any comments or critisisms will be gratefully

************************** HINTS TO FOLLOW ********************************
- Strategy is as important as tactics. Sometimes its better to sneak around
rather than going for a frontal assault.
- It's not always necessary to kill or fight every monster, especially at
the end. Try to get around them if possible. Or, try to lure them out of
the area you where you want to be. If all else fails, find places where
you can get a clear shot at them, but they can't easily shoot you.
-DON'T go downstairs until you have checked ALL the upper levels, except
where you need a key to open the door. Where's the key? Downstairs, of
