Description: These are seven of my wads. They aren't supposed to be played consecutively as an episode, each one should be started with a pistol. This Swarm.wad was originally released as Swarming.wad but that was too dificult and map04 was so massive you couldn't save games so I edited it and it is now half the size and you can save all you want! Map01 has been made a little easier; Map07 is just as difficult as it ever was! Maps 05 and 06 are easy, the rest are very difficult and, except for 01, very long. Maps 03, 04 and 07 are the really difficult marathon levels but as in all the swarm levels the difficulty is with the amount of monsters not because of any mind boggling tricks or secrets. As I always say if I wanted a thinking game I'd play chess.
Credits: iD Software, and the author of evildog for demonstrating how to make those midgrate doors.
Base: This is a grey area; the only level that was really based on another was level 06(psycho.wad). Maps 02 and 03 are from scratch but include many rooms that I pasted in from my favorite DOOM1 Wads while I was learning how to use DCK's great copy and paste utility. I have lost most of their text files so I don't know who to give credit to.
Build time:
Editor(s) used: DCK2.2 WARM (a great combination)
Bugs: Map 03 is strange in that, near the end of the level when monsters are at the peak of their frenzy, they and things like trees and such sart winking in and out of existence.

Very very difficult set of maps that require careful thought and fantastic fighting skills. Not for nubs like the previous reviewer.x
Awful; I played the first three levels and gave up, it's not worth it. There's a mixture of unfair traps, technical incompetence, and tedious gameplay. The barrel trap at the beginning of level one is just the beginning; the author is also fond of invisible telports and switch puzzles. I detest Medeski, Martin, & Wood. Yes, you can play your instruments. Very well done.x
