Misc. Author Info : Someone who should really be
concentrating on exams right now...
Description : According to your watch, it's the 12th of June.
Which is odd, because it was definitely the 5th
of June about five seconds ago, and you were at
your friend's birthday party, not here...
Frantically, you cast your mind back to the time
which was presumably a week ago. There was that
girl; a real shocker. That was your most recent
memory - the girl. Cascading chestnut-brown
hair and bright blue eyes; shame about the
complexion. Actually, hang on, how many people
have you seen with grey skin hanging off them...?
And was that really her cheap perfume that smelt
of rotting flesh...?
More memories come back to you, fleeting glimpses
of something almost like those movies you weren't
allowed to stay up to watch as a kid. Rooms full
of zombies... evil experiments in dark
laboratories... more and cheaper ways to
efficiently zombify lots of people at once. The
worst thing was, you seemed to be helping them!
Something fishy's up on the Martian colony. You
jump up from where you are sitting, and decide
there and then to go and do something about it.
And there the story starts...

It's finally here! This is my biggest and most ambitious WAD
ever! Except it's not quite as big or ambitious as it was
meant to be - I discovered the hard way that you can't have
more than 512 sectors in the same level. Oh well...
The divide should be pretty obvious - it's the point where
the architecture suddenly loses all its detail, and useless
rooms become thin on the ground.
Note that this WAD isn't supposed to be played as a stand-
alone! The other WADs in this series should be available from
the same website as this one.
This is a harder WAD than one of my usual levels. Here are
FIND THE BESERK PACK as a matter of priority. It's located
fairly near the start. There's precious little ammo about and
if you do not utilise it to its full capability, you won't live
to regret it.
There are a lot of baddies around the garden when you first
enter it. Stand in the narrow entrance and pick them off.
DON'T lose your patience!
Try to get the monsters to kill each other as much as
possible. But not any more than is possible, because that's the
line where they start hitting you instead. Works best in
Duck behind a window to fight the Lost Souls near the start.
They can't get you and you can use the beserk pack.
Take time to look for the secrets! Some of the stuff in them
is almost essential for survival!
Never rush into any unexplored area unprepared.
No, the door to the ladies' toilet is NOT meant to open. :-)
