Description: This is my SECOND fully working Doom level. The FIRST standard level!

In the future, it is a crap place, and people like violence on TV. You enter one of these Running Man type competitions and win. After, you are knocked unconscious and abducted... BLAH, BLAH BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH.

You find yourself trapped inside a prison cell conviently stashed with weapons. After overpowering the guard you appear in a giant ring full of battaling monsters...

This is an arena, and you have entered prematurely. Take part and win, or become a loser nobody remembers.

The action continues as you try to make your escape through a maze of similar looking rooms, but it is guarded by monsters all the way through.

It IS possible, but it takes a little practise. When you figure out what to do and where to go it is a piece of cake (almost). Just charge through.

This is untested on Network 3 & 4 player games.

TIP: For slower machines, (less than a 486 DX4) I would recommend... Playing the 2nd skill level. This does not have the spawn cube and can speed up play. But this is then EASY level and makes it... easy. I am looking into it for the next version.

Base: New level from scratch
Build time: A long, long, time.
Editor(s) used: Deep 8.35 DMMUSIC 1.0 NWT 1.3 Paint Shop Pro V.3
Bugs: Sometimes, just sometimes, because of the large amount of enemies, you cannot save your game :-( I am making a new version to ammend this problem

This is dated August 1996. "In the future, it is a crap place, and people like violence on TV" says the readme - it's uncanny that someone in 1996 could predict the present day so accurately. The level itself is a very simple spawn shooter slaughter arena hub maze, with initially 440 baddies; it's a bit like the classic SQUARES.wad but infinitely easier. The sheer level of carnage is enough to be entertaining although there's no real challenge.x
I dunno, I was a little puzzled as to what the point was, but if you enjoy a fragfest, knock yourself out.x
It looks so wrong but it feels so right!x
Great, just great!x
