Description : You are sent to do battle for the humans to the
Doom2 (tm) base on the planet Altair1. You will not
fail! This is the first level in the Altair series
of PWADS. It was designed to be the first level and
takes a little longer than ID's first level. It was
also designed with fast play action ultra violence
in mind, but there are two easier difficulty
settings. I don't and have never played deathmatch,
so it isn't supported. The level does include
player positions but no ammo or weapons for
deathmatch. It does include ammo and weapons for
single player and cooperative play.
You start out in a lower portion of the base. Play
proceeds through winding corridors and rooms. Along
the way you battle imps, chaingunners, shotgunners
and troopers. Sorry NO Cyberdemons! (This is meant
to be level one you know.) There are many secret
doors which are identified by their different
textures. The secret doors do NOT show up as doors
on the map. The level has the usual items, and many
surprises. (Well... the guys at work liked it! :-) )
Installation : Quite easy. Unzip the file in your Doom2 (tm)
directory and type altair.
