A regular on DWANGO-JAPAN so if you
don't like these levels you can take it
up with me and my Rocket-Launcher!
Description : These are seven of my wads. They aren't
supposed to be played consecutively as
an episode, each one should be started
with a pistol.
This Swarm.wad was originally released as
Swarming.wad but that was too dificult
and map04 was so massive you couldn't
save games so I edited it and it is now
half the size and you can save all you want!
Map01 has been made a little easier;
Map07 is just as difficult as it ever was!
Maps 05 and 06 are easy, the rest are
very difficult and, except for 01, very
long. Maps 03, 04 and 07 are the really
difficult marathon levels but as in all
the swarm levels the difficulty is
with the amount of monsters not because
of any mind boggling tricks or secrets.
As I always say if I wanted a thinking
game I'd play chess.

* Construction *
Base : This is a grey area; the only level
that was really based on another was
level 06(psycho.wad). Maps 02 and 03
are from scratch but include many rooms
that I pasted in from my favorite DOOM1
Wads while I was learning how to use
DCK's great copy and paste utility. I
have lost most of their text files so
I don't know who to give credit to.
Editor(s) used : DCK2.2 WARM (a great combination)
Known Bugs : Map 03 is strange in that, near
the end of the level when monsters are
at the peak of their frenzy, they and
things like trees and such sart winking
in and out of existence.
In light of the above mentioned bugs I would appreciate feedback on
these levels especially on how to improve them. Any demos single or
multiplayer would be appreciated and enjoyed. Thanx
