Advanced engine needed : No
Primary purpose : Single
Uploader's Note : This upload is part of an attempt to find, test,
and archive on idgames any "lost" Heretic/Hexen
PWADs that can be recovered from compilation CDs,
other archives, etc. Something for the
oldschoolers out there.
NB: CASTLE3.WAD as originally released was
impossible to beat in single player because
the player 1 start was in a different part of
the map, unable to access many vital areas. It
seems very likely that Martin intended all
players to start together, but moved the P1
start for testing and forgot to move it back.
The uploader has taken the liberty of correcting
this, but includes the original release of the
map as CASTLE3.OLW. No other aspect of the map
This is the "modernized" text file, filled in
with the original information where possible and
the uploader's best attempt otherwise.
The original text file is included as
