About This File

<--- I hate this trying to fill this line, but many people like a bit of story, so I better think of one >:-<

Okay, hows this:

After cleaning up phobos, deimos, hell, and earth, you got a little slack, relaxed yourself, etc. Aren't heroes (or heroines, to be politically correct) supposed to get fat juicy rewards? You still have your souvenir bunny impaled on a stake, but it's hardly a king's (or queen's) ransom. If you had asked for money BEFORE saving the world, you could have been the richest man (stuff the equal opportunities, it's getting tedious) on earth.

Now you are sharing a run-down shack with some mice, a million spiders, and a rare form of fungus. you are listed as "experiencing moderate financial difficulties" (ie. you can't afford a piece of paper on which to work out how deeply you are in debt).

There is only one way left to earn a living: bounty hunting. That is where a (substantial) reward is agreed on before you risk life and limb for the salvation of mankind.

You have heard about a military bunker, roughly two miles north of deimos, which could easily have been infected. Using a little blackmail, you secure a nice hefty sum for assassination of the tyrant ruling the adjoining subterranean caves. However, in a (feeble) attempt to withstand the invasion, the occupants of the base did their best to seal off the caves, so access will not be easy... >:->

If the author had five friends, they could be called "Benfold's Five". My joke. This is a large and very bland level without much detail; lots of empty square rooms and Dr Who corridors. It's behind the times for 1997 and feels very spartan and imaginative today. There are a couple of decent bits (some imps feasting on a corpse, and... that's it). Monster fights unimpressive, separated by silence. One good lava chasm, but it's slim pickings.

      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.
