Description : My first Heretic WAD. There are some
interesting effects in this game to
pay attention to, otherwise you may be
sorry. A bloody 3 or 4 player
deathmatch WAD. Probably my only Heretic
WAD now that Duke3D is out!

series of WADs inspired me to build my own.

WinDEU sector building problems on this WAD

I've created an original(?) effect in this level by setting some
interesting wind directions. This means that projectile weapons
may be adversly affected by the wind.
A couple of interesting tactics emerge:
1) Billiard Ball Tactic - try standing next to the center pylon and
use the hellstaff to fire almost (but not quite) directly into one of the
waterfalls. Step out of the way and watch the fireworks. Your shots start
ricocheting all around the room! Aim slightly up to use this tactic
against any flying scum (I hate flying opponents) to keep them on
2) I Can Still Hit You Tactic - Fire projectiles across the water areas
and allow the wind to curve their paths. For example, you can "curve" an
arrow around a corner and hit someone who's not quite hidden.
