This is a medium size level designed for Single Player and
Deathmatch, with an emphasis on design and appearance.
The idea is based on a Roman coliseum were you fight for the
entertainment of an audience. In this case most of the audience
is active and will shot at you.
The level consists of a central arena and four peripheral rooms,
each with an audience.
To finish the level you have to obtain the keys in order, Yellow,
Red and Blue. In so doing, you will collect weapons in order,
chaingun, rocket launcher, plasma rifle and BFG. The enterance
to each room is colour coded by corresponding light sources.
In alt-deathmatch mode the centre arena was designed to provide
a focal point, were ammo and the super shotgun may be obtained.
Also, you have to run by each other in the arena to get to the
weapons rooms. Some rooms contain dark areas suitable for
ambush. Additional items are present in deathmatch mode.
Your goal should be to find the hidden switch that opens up the
secret telporter rooms and thus gain access to the items on the
pillars (hint, try the blue room). A teleporter room may be
found off all four of the peripheral rooms, and the items on the
pillars to the left and right at each enterance are accesed by
Note: Although this is not a particularly big level it may run
slowly on some machines due to the graphical complexity of the
central area. In deathmatch you could try running with the
Nomonsters option and/or decrease screen size.
Separate pwads are provided for DOOM and DOOM II, I would
recommend the DOOM II version since this contains a greater
variety of monsters.
