Title : Think Twice
Filename : THINK2WC.WAD
Author : John Upper

Misc. Author Info : I am not a miscellaneous author!
Description : A dark, medium-sized, asymmetrical WAD.
Nothing fancy, but has variety and allows
strategy, so it's very playable.
NOTE: difficulty settings 1-2 are specially furnished
(bonuses, weapons, monsters) for altdeathmatch with
monster respawn ON.
- HMP and UV are designed primarily for single player games.
How many times can you play the same WAD before getting bored...?
- Since everybody ends up playing at UV all the time anyway, I
made HMP and UV like two UV levels, with different monsters and
key locations. UV is harder, but HMP is fun too.
- There is no forced sequence of keys and rooms: in HMP you don't
need to visit all the main rooms in UV you don't *need* all the
keys. The order in which you visit rooms, trigger switches, and
start teleporting monsters can dramatically affect game play.
- There IS enough ammo to kill everything, but not enough to waste.
Unless you're a DOOM GOD, in UV you'll have to find better ways
to deal with the bad guys than a face to face shoot out. There are several.
- There are ways to *lock* some of the rooms from the outside,
which allows some wicked strategies in deathmatch, and can come in
- All DM starting points have a supershotgun nearby, so there's no
`pistol vs rocket launcher' stuff after a frag. But you have to *earn*
the long-range weapons and power-ups.
- The map is bigger than the typical Danzig-sized DM WAD. Don't worry:
with monster RESPAWN you can always hear where the other player is,
and you can always get there FAST. No monsters needed in 3-4 player DM.
- BRIGHTNESS: should be dim. In the first courtyard, set gamma-correct
(F11) so you can't quite see all the way across. Play in a dark room.
- Comments, suggestions and advice are more than welcome.
- Best times: HMP = 4:27 (47%,16%,12%); UV = 9:36 (60%,34%,37%)
- The computer map is a WANG ;)
