HIGH TECH/LOW LIFE (Map01)
As always when I make a multi-level PWAD I like to make a MAP01 that
is easier than the rest of the Levels. It is not easy to construct
a level that is simple but fascinating, just like MAP01 of original
DOOM2. The author of original MAP01 should be honored - it is the
BEST deathmatch level I have ever seen. (This is just my opinion).
- * -
This Level puts you in a Laboratorium. You will have no problems if
you are a prof. DOOM but for those of you who don't play DOOM all night,
this is just the beginning! It will get tough later.
Like in the original, this level has some secret areas - it should be
also easy enough to find them.
Deathmatch: Should be a good deathmatch level, for two or three players.
METAL MACHINE MUSIC (Map02)
Before you gun around, please read the banner that you could see in the
starting room. It is actually the text of the song "HIGH TECH/LOW LIFE"
by DIE KRUPPS. The CD is named "I" and is available through Rough Trade
Rec. Germany. B.t.w.: the levels of this PWAD are named as the ten songs
on that album.
- * -
In the next room you can decide where you want to go: the left way is
easy and short; you don't get much ammo for the next level. The right way
should be harder and you also get the right weapons! This level just
filles the gap between the ending of the first level and the beginning
of the third. You can solve the whole level if you want to. There
are connecting air ducts.
Deathmatch: With the use of so many one-way sectors, this is a com-
plicated level for deathmatch.
Once thought to replace MAP02 I found it too difficult and put it in MAP03.
I build over a month on this one and think it is balanced. I could do
better, I know - its just that it bores me now. Some awful unfair
spots were added to this level that seems to be a DOOM1 level taken
into DOOM2, but I swear that it always was a DOOM2 PWAD!
- * -
After starting in a somewhat claustrophobic cage, you have to face some
skulls and demons (B.t.w.: in skulkeep I didn't use so much skulls
anyway...) - then jump to the door at the right and turn right again and
go through this door. (You'll see that this Level is more something
for the pro's.) A teleporter will get you out. Run around and finish off
the final enemy. OK- didn't seem to be a good level. (Thats why it
is Level 3. I want you to see Level 2 as a beauty.)
Deathmatch: I made the level with this in mind but it turned out to be
too straightforward. You would better skip this.
THE DAWNING OF DOOM (Map04)
This should have been Map02, but then I had a dream this afternoon about
the room with the Arch-Viles and the barons. In this dream (that really
happened!) I run around in a oval-shaped gray-textured room with
several pillars and stands in the middle. I had a Plasma Gun and rifled
the monsters away. In my dream the Arch-Viles and the Barons were separ-
ated but I thought that this would be too boring. After I woke up, I
edited the room until it was FUN. On the other hand, the map was now too
hard for being Map02. So it's here! Live with it! And the room is
fun! I tell you! It's fun! And I think it is by far the best level in
the set. Deathmatch: Very good deathmatch level, but: If you are being
killed in the body of water you will get a HOM. This is caused by the
Deep Water effect used there. If you mind, change it with an EXE-editor
or leave it that way. I don't mind. I just activate a new credit.
MINISTRY OF FEAR (Map05)
This level is no level for apprentices... Just kill off some of the
spiders before it eats you... Make it happen.
Deathmatch: Yes, that could you do.
Please note that this level has the map layout taken from another
Krupps CD: Tribute to Metallica (for teccs: the snake is also the logo of
the black Metallica album).
- * -
You can run through the hallways of the serpent and the monsters will
get bigger and bigger... Not much of puzzles here.
Deathmatch: Oh - it should be rather too big for deathmatch, at least
for two players. If you are four or more people, go ahead...
SIMPLY SAY NO (Map07)
First, I thought about making a traps level, that makes you spring a
trap if you try to get some goodies. Then I made a sort of MAP08
level out of it.
DISCIPLES OF DISCIPLINE (Map08)
You were thrown in the sewers. Little health but more fun. This
level turns out to be much easier than expected...
THE POWER (Map09)
In this level is Norbert's idea of having an enemy that chases you
and some barriers that go up and down. Most monsters are slow, though
(compared to the duke). See what it made out of it...
It is intended that there is little stamina in this level. Get
grown up now!
RINGS OF STEEL (Map10)
The final level features the best monster steel can build. You do not
need to kill it, but if you don't, you aren't doomed enough!
Deathmatch: Hdn. Posdijbl.

Three Levels that make a short trip in this episode of hell. You need
KILLEYES.WAD (Level1), KILLEASY.WAD (Level2) and KILL101%.WAD (Level3)
to play. Level 1-3 replacement, comparing to level 7 to 10 of Doom II.
