Story . . .
The lords of Voor found themselves dying of ennui and vapid
battles with lesser lifeforms such as abducted humans and cyber-enhanced
viral strains. Having languished in the pooled blood and RNA of their
pawns, they turned to virtual death and mayhem. In this way they could
reach out and touch the fertile dreamworlds of man.
Unsuspecting parents and workplace overseers turned away in their
preoccupied, busy lives and never noticed the insipid change in the young
and cubicled restless among them.
Visions of Voor-generated cyberdemons stalked the minds of millions.
The lords of Voor chuckled as the final lead break blazed a path of insanity
through the neurons of head-banging adolescents and the mid-life crises of
overweight "yes-men". "Go ahead, you deserve another doughnut break."
The gates were left open and the obsidian jaws of Reality pushed
the sky away revealing the Voorian dimensions of corruption and vices beyond
comprehension. Type, doom2 -file dobattle.wad, enter, and get infected.
Hints, secrets, typical b.s.:
MAP01- Once named "messedup.wad" as I was just learnin' the stupid
little ways I think but at least it got finished. Not all switches help you.
I love weird images so enjoy. Learned a lot on this level. It helps to run
like a madman at times.
MAP02- First monickered as "bullpen.wad" in honor of an old tradition
letting the bulls run free in the streets. Enjoy the Demons and Spectres once
you figure out how to get outta the pit. Again, it helps to charge straight
into the face of danger blasting and dodging certain death to get the goodies.
Don't stand still too long trying to figure things out or you're toast! This
level certainly has its ups and downs.:)
MAP03- Previously known as "trials.wad". Things are not as they seem
and the walls are alive!! Jump from the frying pan into the fire. The big
room is a DEFINITE RUSH!! I loved putting this nightmare together. It's a
highwire, teleportin', running, JUMPING, and shooting binge!!! Do you like
getting blown away and falling into oblivion as the "BIG GUY" hunts your
miserable little self down? This level's for you. This place is SO mean and
exhilarating cuz you never know when the next salvo is the "red death".
HA, HA, HA, GOTCHA AGAIN!! There's plenty of ammo, weapons, health-related
items, and places to run and hide but "HE'S GONNA FIND YOU AND PUMMEL YOU
Have a nice day.

Frame of mind to play in: "Lose the drugs and alcohol.
Reality is a rush enough!
Sermonette is now over, wake up!!"
