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).

      Pretty enjoyable map, besides volume of background music. I'm just turned it off and stalk through map in silence, hunting on enemies that waited for me behind each corner. For vanilla-compatible map its very big and complex in structure. Map brings a good survival challenge for player by lack of medikits, forcing to play carefully and without haste.   I remember that i seen boxes with rockets, but not the Rockerlauncher itself. Its strange, but not breaks gameplay.   Overall, its a good example of vanilla gameplay and design.

      yeah I gotta admit, this one's pretty good too. apparently it's not a speedmap, but it damn sure got inspired by a lot of hard levels we all know and love. if it attempted only to do that and make a hard level that has similar aspects to those many maps, it succeeded, even though the level itself isn't gonna be as memorable, it is still a fun, tough challenge map. hone your skills with this map.

      rather oddly, this short map ends up being my favorite from Didy. it's not confusing at all at least until you try to find the red skull key, and the pacing is pedestrian. the setting of the beach and the underwater stuff feels amazing, and the preshow at the beginning plus the interior parts weren't too bad either. all in all, pretty neat for once.

      well, it's a speedmap alright, but those familiar with the magnum opuses that DD has already given will obviously not like this one as much. atmospheric? somewhat. nonlinear? that's great. tough? not as much as the other ones. basically, this is forgettable by DD's standards but is still miles ahead of other speedmaps I've played.
