Hey you!!! If your reading this and notice that you live way far away from
Sacramento, CA then give me an e-mail or somethin telling me how far away you
are. I just want to see how far this wad gets :D. You can also e-mail me if
you hate or love it, or if you just want me to kick your ass in it.
This will probably be my last level creating experience until QUAKE comes out
so I decided to go ahead and go out with a bang. Because of the huge success
of BATTERY I figured that people just might start downloadin the wads that I
make so why not make a fat compilation of DEATHMATCH levels. There are
certain things that I hate about many deathmatch levels and that is that there
way too much ammo and energy. I think the fun comes in fraggin people and not
chasing them down while they get megasphere's and BFG's. So I try to put the
perfect amount of ammo in the game with enough energy to survive a few hits.
Another thing you might notice is that there is ALWAYS an invournable ball in
the exit. I started doin this because it was the easiest place to put it and
everyone kinda just figuered to see one there. So in the last few levels I
decided to get a little tricky when hiding them. If you dont see one in there
then you are not looking hard enough. Also the 7th level in this package is
kinda a bonuus level I guess. It was not designed for deathmatch but for
co-op. So if your bored and nobody will play you give this a try. It is a
very challengin level for even the most experienced doomer. Well below is a
brief explination of each level. Enjoy the fraggin.
1. MORBID: This level is a wide open level that will test the skill of
your aim as well as your runnin and shootin skills. This wad
was one of my favorite wads when I was testin it with joyride.
MUSIC: Seek n' Destroy
2. BATTERY: This is the wad that was my biggest success. I decided that I
had to include this one just in case all the others suck. I
feel that it is the best because of the way that the whole
level surrounds the soulsphere perfectly and it is both an
open and closed wad that requires skill in all areas.
3. ONE When making this level I was only concerned with trying to
make a very evil looking level. I wasnt worried about how it
would play to later. When playin it finally I noticed that it
was hella fun. So I decided to go ahead and include it in here.
4. CHAOS This was originally the first level in the DIVINE wad that I
modified for deathmatch. I was actually just looking for an
easy way to get a level out and when playin DIVINE I found out
that this was about the only level that could be turned into
a deathmatch level, so I went ahead and did it.
5. NIGHTMARE This level is just a nightmare. I got sorta an idea of a
blinking light around the outside from a strobe light. heh
I wanted to make it a pain on your eyes as well as on your
fraggin skills. Most of the killin will probably take place
in the center arena so you will need good aiming skills to
get a lot of frags in this one.
MUSIC: Fade to Black
6. INSANE This was my last wad made for this compilation so it is my
most recent wad and maybe my best. It is the smallest wad by
a byte standard but it plays almost the biggest because of the
way i designed it. Also if you can figure out how to get the
invournable ball without using turbo then you rule. It will
not be easy, you must use your imagination :)
7. BONUS This is a very old level that I just never got done. I just
wanted to get it off my hard drive so I figured why not just
throw it in here for fun. It is actually very fun for
1-player games and co-op. And it is hella hard also. Try and
see if you can finish it.
MUSIC: The Call of Ktulu
I hope that you enjoy these wads as much as I do heh. It took a lot of time
and downloadin to make these so you better at least try it. By the way. If
someone has the old versions of BATTERY or ONE and want to play you using that
wad it will not work. I have made slight modifications between the originals
and the ones in this wad. So just tell them to go download this dam thing.
