About This File

It's a bright, sunny day and you feel like a million bucks. You're strolling down the street whistling some John Denver tune when a travel brochure materializes in you hand(!). It says:

"...you've got eternity on your hands so what are you going to do after a season of sitting on hot coals, firebombing your buddies, and chewing your friends? Where can you go when it's time to relax - to get away from it all - in short, what's Leona gonna do when she gets here? Come to the Hellsley suites: Hell's finest hotel and resort with tropical beach, swimming pool, TV in your room (permanently set to the Discovery channel) - even a recreation area with lava floors and floating caged barons to play with. Come join the fun..."

The brochure suddenly bursts into flames and you're blinded by a green flash and burning fingers. You find yourself in a stone walled room, a shotgun at your feet. Hey - and there's a rocket launcher! Thinking that maybe it was a Barry Manilow number and this is what you're gonna get for airing it, you cautiously open a nearby door. Hmmm..., this seems to be an hotel lobby.

"Excuse me, sir... yes, you with the shotgun. Can you tell me where I am?"...

A big level that sneakily changes its architecture. Good design with a lot of vertical variety and a few violent bits. Cool secrets, a nice mix of action, puzzle-solving and exploration.

This is dated September 1995, and seems to have passed the world by. This is a shame, because it's not bad; you fight 245 monsters in a large-scale castle / warehouse level. It hangs on the cusp between between pleasingly non-linear and just wandery and boring, and there's no shortage of ammo and health. One room has a clever mocked-up multi-storey layout, and it gets harder towards the end, although I kept expecting a boss battle that never came.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
