About This File

A single player and multiplayer .wad for Hexen. You must make your way through the 'city' to find the switches that will open the gate and lower the pillar giving access to the FlameMask. Once the gate is open, you will then make your way down the path to the final building. Do you have what it takes to complete it?

In multiplayer deathmatch mode there are several doors that open up corridors connecting the main buildings. This has the benefit of making a more "spider-web" level that is better for deathmatching.

A LOT of time went into creating this level. It is almost 300k, and the scripts alone total over 300 lines. I tried to cover a lot of ground with this level to try to demonstrate different scripts. If you see anything you like in here and want to know how I did it, just E-Mail me and I will either try to explain it, or send you a copy of my script. (Check out the Highlander effects when you kill the big bad guy. :)

Some of the areas are rather poor visually, but the level is okay and has some cool scripting.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.

      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.
