is the best for those tricky little extra sectors

THE STORY SO FAR
Back on earth after the "Holiday on Phobos" all seemed to be well, until the
Hell spawn you encountered on Mars re-appeared on Earth. Until now the true
story of how that happened has never been told.
In fact prior to your fatal visit to the Hanger, the unscrupulous government
of the day had sent a secret mission to bring back some of the monsters to
be evaluated for military purposes on Earth. (Heard this story before?).
The small sample of evil was taken to what was thought to be a top security
research lab that had the disguise as a Veterinary clinic.
For this reason the strange howlings and crying at night did not raise anyones
suspicions. But unfortunately the beings from Hell were not to be contained
and they broke out and entered a disused subteranian mine system. Here they
have been breeding and planning their atack on Mother Earth. To prevent any
possible counter attack they have placed there stongest as a guard to the
Your mission is to be sent back in time to prevent DOOM ][ ever happening.
Old plans of the Research Lab indicate that the storm water drain can be
used enter the car park and avoid the deadly guard. The time machine will
hopefully deposit you in this drain. Once in the complex you must find the
switch that will shutdown the complex and seal the monsters under the Earth
Should you manage to do this to return to our time you must return to the
storm drain and work your way to the time retrieval point. Unfortunately
the only place we can rcover you from with any chance of succes is the old
obelisk that still stands today. This means we can work out the correct
co-ordinates. The bad news is that the Hell Guard is posted right under it.
Anyway, what the hell, you wont make it that far anyway.....
If you enjoy or have any comments etc its always nice to hear about it
