About This File

You've cleaned up the mess left by the Military's secret projects on Phobos and Deimos. With this victory, the hellish invasion seems to have been thwarted.

Unfortunately, the Military was engaged in another project in the vicinity of Mars: codenamed Project Scorpio. The goals of the project were to acquire samples of alien microorganisms that existed in the vacuum of space. No significant discoveries are known to have been made by this project.

However, one of the satellites used to scoop samples recently passed close to the Martian moons. After the Scorpio base recovered the satellite for examination, chaos broke out and communications with the base cut off. A trouble- shooter sent to assess the situation disappeared. Apparently demons from one of the moons stowed away aboard the satellite and migrated to the Scorpio base. Your mission is to exterminate all of the hellish creatures and destroy the satellite.

You have been issued only a pistol because the Scorpio base is known to have a substantial armory on the first level in its Blue security area. Access from level one downwards to level eight is available via a series of lifts. Note that the path downwards is intentionally circuitous so that sections of the base could be quarantined if any dangerous life forms escaped. Finally, note that there are many security pads located throughout the base. Some must be activated in order to achieve the higher-security areas, but others were designed to redirect intruders and expose them to security personnel. Use caution throughout.

Play is very nonlinear. You can win several different ways, but some are substantially easier than others. In coop mode, do not make the mistake of going separate ways...watch your buddy's back!

The readme waffles on, but the level isn't bad. It's a wandery, non-linear computer base / warehouse. The design is typically 1994, very square and without much thought to texture alignment, but there's some imagination and it just needs a bit of polish. There's a decent lot of enemies, not too much health or ammo. Suffers from the fact you can just run past the final battle (the boss monster doesn't prevent you from reaching the switch).

      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.

      Laggy hell with 32k monsters and too much invulnerability spheres. Just... total vomit.

      Insanity, with voodoo dolls (see second screenshot).  I get the idea of a shooting gallery if that rocks your boat, but 6000 monsters behind railings- as far as the eye can see, FFS! My PC crawled when I looked towards the invuln spheres (someone said 32 k of them and you can't avoid picking up thousands at a time). In the end I cheated with god mode and no-clipping, and waded in among the chaingunners until I got bored.

      Simple, clearly a first wad.  All on the flat with big, brightly lit, and architecturally implausible rooms. The first map has two rooms, the second map one, and the third map one plus a kind of exit lobby. You can do one of two things - just run past the monsters and finish (I did it in 35 seconds), or have a bit of fun killing the monsters first. No noticable bugs. I hope the author will go on (or went on) to greater things.
