This WAD is meant to be played without cheating and everything can be done
perfectly fairly, though in my experience it's not always easy. Saving your
game regularly is very useful as is conserving ammunition, which begins to
become very scarce as time goes on, so hold your shots even from the beginning.
The level design is, in my opinion, much better than average but not always
perfect (it does get better after level 1.) From the very start, when you
see the Baron of Hell in level 1, you should know that things don't start
with just some little soldier guys and maybe an imp or two. Things become
much harder as the levels progress, but expect to see every monster in DOOM II
in the very first level as well as most weapons and powerups.
Others may not use these levels as the basis from which to design new ones,
but they may be freely distributed as long as they are kept together and
unmodified from their original form. You can do what you want with this
