Description :a small single player level for Doom2.
You start in a castle surrounded by several
armies of evil. With a shock you realize that
there's no gate you could close to keep the
hellish troops outside. Fortunately, your enemies
are not very disciplined...
>>> I modified this level for deathmatch play (DDSOIL-
DM.WAD): there are no monsters, no health except
for two soul spheres that are difficult to receive
and more weapons than in the original level.
However, you may deathmatch in DEADSOIL.WAD too;
the starts are there.

* Notes and Hints *
You sure will enjoy the unusual gameplay of this level. Remember: some-
times it is better to run away than to fight. I suggest that you try to
beat this level in ultra-violence without saving (and, of course, with-
out cheating). You need some luck, but it's possible and, believe me,
There are three secrets in this level.
If you have FINAL DOOM, load this Wad with PLUTONIA. The PLUTONIA-sky
looks great on this level.
