Description : Damn Box is a small deathmatch level inspired by
danzig 17 and 19. I hope it's different enough so
I don't get sued. The box is mentioned below. It
plays very quickly and full o' laughs. Keep reading

* Important Notes *
Damn box is a small deathmatch level like danzig 17 and 19. Even two players
is a fast game. The "box" is that silver thing near the acid. It works like
this. To get _in_ the box, you have to run up the stairs into the loft. There
is a little window to the right of the teleporter. If you jump correctly, you
can land _in_the_box_. This is very aggravating to do, but rewarding. Depending
on the skill setting, it will have a rocket launcher (1,2,3) or a plasma
gun (4,5). To get out, just hit the switch. It's really really hard to get in
the box, hence the name.
The level is designed so that the weapon placements force players into the
dark recessess of the level. The double shotguns are in the dark semi-circle
corridor and in the little room at the top. This makes people use the more
interesting spots. I did this because I noticed that when Igor9 came out,
level 6 had a new double shotgun in a more accessable place, and as a result
almost no one went to the other interesting sections. (check out the igor demos
at cdrom.com to see the difference in play styles. (igor4wy2.lmp vs.
The skill settings don't affect anything except for the weapons. Skills 1, 2,
and 3 have _no_ energy weapons, and 4 and 5 _do_ have energy weapons. That's
There are no monsters in the level, so one player mode is only there so you can
scout out the terrain.
This level is constantly being added on to, so if you play it and say, "That
could be improved," then email me and maybe I'll make the change. Think of
it as beta testing.
If you actually read all of that, congratulations! Now I'll tell you the
secret to the level: Go for a swim!
