This wad is based on the cult horror movie Phantasm.
You are Mike Pearson. And the Tall Man is back. First he took Mom and
Dad. Then he took Jody. Now he's after you. You begin at the entrance
to the Tall Man's Domain, and what awaits you, you can only imagine.
You enter. Was that a Silver Sphere that just flew by? Shit, it sure
sounded like one. Feeling a little drained? (as in, your blood)
Eat some Reggie's Ice Cream for strength. His Neopolitan is grand.
Armed with only your Colt Army Issue, you enter a
hellish domain where nightmare meets reality, and they become one.
You're not quite sure how you got here, but you do know one thing.....
You're gonna find that Tall dude, stomp the shit out of him, and find
out what the hell is going on! And on your way you'll find out just
how great Reggie's Ice Cream is. Stock up.
Hey, don't worry. It's only a bad dream.......

Miscellaneous WAD info:
I hope you enjoy this WAD. I tried to give it that
PHANTASM-ic atmosphere, and hope I've succeeded, but I'd like
to hear any input from anyone who plays this WAD, the good, the bad,
and the ugly. It's a fairly large WAD, and in creating it, the thing
just kind of got out of control.
Anyone familiar with the PHANTASM movies will definitely
recognize some definite PHANTASM-ic areas within the Tall Man's Domain.
As tempting as it is to tell you what they are, you've gotta find out
on your own.
I created this WAD on a 486-DX2 66 8MB machine and it works fine. I haven't
tested it on anything else yet, so I don't know how this WAD may play on
a slower machine or one with less memory (like you have one.)
Enjoy, and kick the Tall Man's ASS.
