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: The level CAN be beaten, although there is
a bug which can block the exit. To avoid this,
never break the stained glass panel nearest to
the door in the chapel. If you reach a steel
door in an island that has HOM behind it, you
blocked the exit but would have been able to win
at that point. It is also possible to block
yourself out of the dungeon due to a single-use
line. If this happens before you activate the
switches down there, you can still win, but
only by using a secret way to do so.
This is the "modernized" text file, filled in
with the original information where possible and
the uploader's best attempt otherwise.
