Only sad anoraks think up stories for their doom creations - just go in blasting!!
Well, OK. Maybe a little hint of a story. This episode works in reverse. Rather than meeting
the bossmonster at the end of an episode, you meet the mighty one in Map01. Whilst drifting
aimlessly through hyperspace, as one does, you materialise onto a strange planet infested with
evil hell spawn. With barely enough time to grab your rifle, you turn to face the first
onslaught... Soon, many bloodstained carcasses lie at your feet and you wonder where these
vile creatures came from. A nearby cave soon leads you to the answer where you confront
the awesome demon lord himself. Luckily, you have caught his lordship off-guard and you soon
blast him into the ether. However, he leaves behind him a legacy of mutants which must be
destroyed. And so your journey begins....
I have played many wads off the net, most are crap! But if you shop around, there are

a well constructed level has to be aesthetically pleasing, architecturally interesting with
challenging combat sequences. So, we are NOT talking about tedious mazes, tiresome puzzles and
endless switch flicking. We ARE talking about striking architecture, traps, ambushes and maybe

of scope for tweaking - maybe a few lighting effects etc. Please send me an e-mail and be
