Misc. Author Info : Fearless Leader of Vectorscope Software
Date Released : 8/7/95
Description : This level really kicks ass. It's a bit HUGE though.
Even if you know what you're doing, it probably
would take a good hour or so to complete. PLEASE
PLEASE try it the first time WITHOUT the Doom
cheaty codes. We dare ya to. And remember, SAVE
OFTEN! ;D BTW, it seems more people have DOOM2 than
DOOM, so many of you will be converting this over
to DOOM2. But TRY at least once, to play it in it's
original DOOM format. But really, this level is,
although made by myself, one of my favorites
(especially in multi-player mode). I had a lot of
fun making this level.
Setting : Your mission is as follows - You have been hired to
(SUGGESTED READING!) take out a strategic enemy base. Due to government
cutbacks, you are the only one we could afford to
hire. Plus, we can only equip you with a pistol for
your mission (again, government cutbacks!). We'll
transport you down to the front of the base. Once
you've been spotted, the base's security system
will be activated. Get through the entrance and
take the elevator to the central core of the base
(underground of course!). You must proceed through
the base until you can find the enemy's Cyberdemon
leader. There will be a series of seven bulkheads
blocking the way to the Cyberdemon's domain. Each
Notice the fun ÄÄÄÄ¿ one can be activated by lowering an eyeball-like
happy Vectorscope ³ switch. Once all seven have been lowered, you can
logo on the beacon!³ proceed to go in and take out the Cyberdemon. There
_³_ ³ is also rumored to be a "viewing" room where you can
(_º_) ³ see your progress of lowering the bulkheads. Once
(_º_) ³ you have obliterated the Cyberdemon, take the
(_º_) ³ elevator back to the surface, activate the homing
³ ÀÄÄÄ> beacon we have set out for you, and you'll be
transported back to the ship.

Again, for the wonderful sounds I ripped.)
BTW, I LOVED your aliens patch, and I too enjoy
WADs with fun effects and interesting architecture
as opposed to simple rooms connected with doors.

Vectorscope also makes cool games, MODs, ANSi, GIFs, and
other spiffy stuff. Look around for some of our other products.
Check the CATALOG.DOC that SHOULD have come with the WAD to see
examples of our other projects. And if you liked this WAD, try getting
my other WAD, ENIGMA.WAD. BTW, one of our other members, CyberMan Gold
is working on a couple of Doom 2 PWADs. They'll kick. I'm also planning
to make some Doom 2 DeathMatch PWADs. Look around for them, they'll
also be cool.
