But dont pass it up as the usual first
time wad . Do yourself a favor and at
least try it out .
Description : DEATHMATCH !!!! This is designed for
deathmatch only . There are monsters in
the wad but they are also placed with
deathmatch in mind . It can be played
single player but there would be no
purpose other than for firing practice.
I tried to make an evil cross between
levels one and seven
Additional Credits to : Jimmy Sieben <a.k.a. Evil Genius> for
answering the questions I had and for
the willingness to die so often in
testing ;) I would never have finished
as painlessly as I did without you .
Also a big thanx to Warren Rice for
sequencing the "Head Like a Hole"
track and to Dan Teeter whose
wad Surreal2.wad I borrowed it from .
I would have used an original tune but
this one fit the theme so well

but <sigh> you can if you must

it plays so well . On skills 1 & 2 there
is an icon thrower in the BFG room in

* Comments *
This is my first wad ..... BUT WAIT ...... dont pass it
up without trying it first !! I am a long time deathmatcher and
some of you may know me from IRC #DOOM . I felt starved for a
wad that emphasized what I refer to as "technique kills".
Seasoned players will know what I am referring to . I finally
got so tired of the MAP01/MAP07 look and feel . This wad is
the best of both their worlds plus some more . Yet , you will
in no way feel as if you are replaying either of them .
For a complete set of what I consider the best "technique"
levels that I have played to date get AVATAR1.WAD and AVATAR2.WAD
Part 1 rocks all-round and so does 2 even though It is , I feel ,
a little more specific with the moves it enhances/audience it may
attract . Nevertheless IMHO they both rock !! The author of these
two wads , and the avatar himself :) , is Mackey Mccandlish .
Mackey helped influence the style of this wad even though he
probably wont know it til he reads it here <hope ya feel flattered>
On skills 1 & 2 there is icon thrower in the bfg room .
It has two icon landings on either side of the BFG altar . THIS
IS ON PURPOSE and might I say works wonderfully . In skills 3-5
It remains up to the other player/players to guard the bfg room
while in skills 1-2 there is the added component of the icon
thrower to deal with . There is also another landing that is in
megasphere hallway , and two that are located in a crusher that
is not accessible by players . This keeps the flow down to where
I wanted it .But since it is either skill 1 or 2 the
activity in the room is very manageable . It plays as more a
destraction than a direct threat . If you wanna play deathmatch
with monsters this is the way to do it . If not then the much
preferrable skills of 4 & 5 are free of it . It rocks either way
* Construction *
Base : Dont want to say and you wouldn't
Build Time : Read above and apply it here
Editor(s) used : DCK ( it may or may not be the best .
It is just the one I decided to use .
I would like to say that it was not
to diffucult to learn on and gave
me little problems
Known Bugs : The doors seem to roll up since the wad
has a sky texture . I thought it looked
bearable and it doesnt detract from
general aesthetics much at all . One
other problem I did encounter was in
making the top portion of my window
show a wall texture to create a window to
the sky . The result looks cool anyway
and may/may not have hit you as unintentional.
If anyone would care to e-mail me a remedy
I would appreciate it . All in all I consider
this wad heads above the average first-timer .
I would never have released it if I didnt
honestly think it rocked .
