This is rev "A" of CYBRDETH.WAD. Two v1.666 demos have been added.
"Cyber Death [CYBRDETH.WAD]" is an outdoor "arena" style DeathMatch
PWAD; DeathMatch on this level is intended to be played with the
-NOMONSTERS switch. The level has hidden teleporters & bonuses placed
specifically for DeathMatch, tons of large pillars scattered randomly
about, four weapon depots, and an open area in the middle (where most
of the fighting will probably occur).
For single play, it should be a true test of your Doom maneuverability
skills because, depending upon the skill setting, there are *numerous*
CyberDemons and limited ammo. There is *always* enough ammo to finish
the Cybers, but you will probably be forced to shotgun the last few.
Hehe... If you can't get 100% kills on skill 3, you're not worthy!! If
you can get 100% kills on skill 4, you can rest assured that you are
one of the few. It's a good way to practice for DeathMatches too,
because it will force you to conserve ammo and to take better [faster]
aim, while perfecting maneuvers like the COD. *PLUS* it should help
some of you "CyberPhobic" people get over your problem by making you
face your fears.
Some of you are saying "More than one CyberDemon!? That's just stupid!".
To that, I say: "You *wimps*... er... uh... I mean, try the level for
DeathMatch then; you'll never even have to see a CyberDemon". The
reason that I put so many Cybers in there for single play was to give
myself a warm up for DeathMatches and also because I find it somewhat
entertaining to go head-to-head with six CyberDemons (that's on skills
4 & 5, on skill 3 there are 3 Cybers, and on skills 1 & 2 there is only
one Cyber, which even my dog Fido can beat!). Your opinion on the
entertainment value of dancing with 6 CyberDemons may vary slightly
from my own.
For a hilarious & hair raising DeathMatch, try fighting your opponent
with a few Cybers strolling around the level (is it me, or do they
always seem to team up with the other guy!?).
Some things that people have said while playing CYBRDETH.WAD:
"Where in the %&*@ are all of the weapons!?"
"Uh...why am I on the ground? The level just started!"
"*WAY* to skimpy on the ammo!"
"Did I just get Teleporter Fragged?"
"Victorious in battle, only to be pummeled to death at the end..."
"I thought that I was good, but..."
"Christ!! They're everywhere!"
Two demos of have been embedded into the PWAD. To watch them, simply
load CYBRDETH.WAD into Doom and let the game sit for a few seconds and
they will start to play automatically. The first is on skill 3 with 100%
kills, the second is on skill 4 (against 6 CyberDemons) with 100% kills.

people on ALT.DOOM.GAMES who were arguing
the best way to kill a single CyberDemon,
which is what gave me the idea for this
level. Try killing six, guys!
