Yet again another evil nation wants to invade the great Greek city of Sparta, as skirmishes break out, the residents of the city are evacuated to neighbouring towns and villages. The city is left deserted waiting for the imminent invasion.
The Greek Gods comprise a plan to bring forward a new and worthy general. To test the very skills required to defeat a force of overwhelming numbers, to find a man capable of taking down thousands upon thousands of enemies. They team up with Hades himselfs to design a test using the evil forces of the underworld to created a challenge so great that only the best would survive.
You are just one man of many taking this test today which has an undetermined lenght, you must proceed through the city streets and clear the city of all hellspawn. Goodluck.
Map 19 - Battle For Sparta
Inspiration - Map 24 From Vile Flesh
Music - Taken from the very same map so credits to Gwyn Williams For composing the track and making such an epic level.
Large cityscape map, using a mixture of brick and tech, shouldn't be too difficult to navigate as there are plenty of weapons and health to find and plenty of space to move, especially outside.
Map 20 - Citadel Of Champions
Inspiration - Maps 19 and 20 from Doom 2
Music - Taken from Epic 2 (Map27) - not sure of it's precise origin sorry.
This takes place in a fortress in a large lagoon, huge structure composed of metal, stone and wood, with some hellish bits thrown in. This map gets brutal toward the end. It was hard to construct a level with such a high degree of non-linearity and could be a bit intimidating. The secrets are plentiful and will help you hugely, some contain teleporters to other sections of the map, these can be used to speed up completion of the map.
Map 21 - Into The Supernova
Inspiration - Many Hell themed maps, Quake E2M5 (Wizards Mance) - LAyout is broadly based on this quake map.
Music - Hells Bells by Tom Mustaine
This map was made for the NOVA project but withdrawn as I thought supplying one map was enough. This is more linear but certain areas need to be covered a few times, more monsters are thrown at you each time.Yet again the gameplay is likely to be hard going.
Map 22 - Fin
Music used - "Highway Surfing" From Sam and Max hit the road
Not much to say, an inescapable room with the words "The End" cut out of the floor.
