(sorry, but due to New Zealand's policy
of charging for internet traffic by the
kilobyte, I've had to disable internat-
ional access. If someone would like
to offer to house me outside of NZ, I'd
be extremely grateful ... :-)
Check out my site in NZ for the latest
upgrades, and my other Doom2/Heretic
levels, including music and Doom
Misc. Author Info : Law student with an odd way to unwind -
killing my friends.

with (as always) tasteful d‚cor,
interesting scenery, and open plan

One player must flick a switch in the northeast corner,
another (in chicken mode) must go through the door which
is opened in the narrow tunnel between branches of the
river flowing from the temple.

for four players, having more ammunition and monsters.
Levels 1-2 are intended for play with monsters respawing
so that the kills last LONGER!
***Lots! From Star Trek, Star Wars, Forrest Gump, Animaniacs,
Doom itself (didn't the orignal Elven wand sound wimpy?),
Terminator, Warner Brothers cartoons etc etc ...
