Description : This level is designed to provide lots of
shooting action (hence the "oozi" pun). There aren't a lot
of puzzles, or secret doors that must be found to get to
the end. Nor are there any "death traps" or rooms with 18
Cyberdemons. Just steady action. And while there are lots of
bad guys to kill, an attempt was made to keep it realistic and
within the class of an original Doom level (i.e. this isn't just
another bunch of monsters and weapons and ammo haphazardly
strewn about every room). I'd appreciate any and all comments/
flames as to whether it succeeds.
It has been beta tested by 2 players other than myself (with
a "thumbs up" from both), but only in single-player mode.
Multi-player and Deathmatch modes are provided, but not tested.
The difficulty levels are also implemented. In general, the
harder the difficulty, the more monsters you get. This level
is designed to be challenging WITHOUT using the cheat keys!
This is my first attempt at a Doom level built from scratch.
Many, many, many! hours went into this level, the majority of
which were spent learning various editors and the ins & outs
of building levels in general. At some point in time I'm sure
I've done every wrong thing that can be done. But it's been
a lot of fun and I hope you get as much fun out of playing it.

Feel free to use this level as a base for new variations (I'd be flattered).
I only ask that you don't use the "RS_....." name as I plan to put out
additional levels with that naming convention.
