About This File

You have been captured by the demons. As you are interrigated the head demon, known as 'Bubba' and who carries to fireball launchers, becomes curious to your resolve not to answer any questions even under torture. He approaches you and staring silently at you for several minutes he speaks...

(Translated from demon speak) ('I am most impressed a lowly human can withstand the pain of some of my best interrigators. I am now curious as to how much pain you can really withstand. I will give you a chance to get free. You must run the Gauntlet. To survive you must complete the challenges including facing my many minions, solving puzzles, and collecting the six keys needed to win. If, and I stress IF, you survive I will personally face you in combat. You beat me, you go free. I win, which I will, you may go free. Are you willing to take the challenge?)

After pretending to think it over (what choice do you really have?) you agree to run the gauntlet. You are armed with a pistol and 50 bullets. Under heavy guard you are escorted to the teleportation chamber. You set in and .....

This map has some flaws, but is still interesting to play. Worth checking out if you don't demand only top-quality maps.

This is dated July 1996. The readme suggests some quality impse - you're in prison, being tortured by an imp called "Bubba" - but sadly the author chose not to run with this. Instead the level is a decent, old-fashioned rocky hub, with 250+ baddies. Looks older than 1996 but plays decently. Tonnes of health and ammo, and a mazey layout that often makes you do the same thing over and over again. With a bit of pruning it would have been okay, but unexceptional.

      Classic funny little skin, still used in servers to this day so I think it deserves some love.   I like that the voice clip says “WHERE ARE A MY PANTS?”

      More an exercise in 3-d artwork than a game. Just someone's bedroom with a HK in a tiny lobby outside the door, and a Caco in a tiny yard outside the window. A BFG and Invisibilty Sphere are also in the yard but you can't get out there. I think the name is a clue - maybe this was the start of a bigger level, then abandoned. He ought to have allowed it as a base for development.

      Starts with all monsters with their backs to you, and you might as well leave it that way and just listen to the music. One big rectangular room with no finish switch. They couldn't even make the rectangle properly - freehand I guess. Kill the monsters if you want, it's easy.

      Superb firework display of thousands of fireballs seeming in slow motion because of the vastness - mostly avoidable as they land where you were ages ago; but worth playing just to see it. A HUGE square surrounded by tiers with hundreds of imps and a few others, plus a blockhouse you can enter first to collect ammo.  Fighting through the hundreds of monsters when you get onto the tiers is another matter, overwhelming at UV. I cheated to finish so at least I could review.  Some HOM bugs.
