Have been playing DooM since the very early
days, when I first saw it on my friend's 486.
About ten years later I dusted this map off and
spent an evening or two polishing it slightly.
Description : My own (probably ill-advised) attempt to counter
Justin Fisher's [*] opinion that PWADs based on
the concept of rooms that form words are boring
and unimaginative. I dare say most of them are
but it was a nice little challenge anyway.
[* JF of Aliens-TC fame, that is.]
This is a relatively small level, but has some
neat touches I think. "Fish" is the despised pet
name by which my little brother was known.
Scroll down for tips.

You'll need to keep your wits about you to survive, and don't waste ammo -
there isn't much of it about. There's some armour near the start - don't
neglect to pick it up, because you will need it.
Pain Elemental: eliminate it before it spits loads of Lost Souls.
Revenant: Keep cool and make maximum use of the available cover. Two
sections of the S walkway can be lowered if you fall into the nukage -
I'll leave you to find out which.
Finally, when retracing your steps don't assume that you won't meet
any opposition. }:>
On ultra-violence you will die if you screw up - if that doesn't sound
like your cup of tea then play on an easier skill level.
