The Story so Far...

You beat them in space, you kicked them off the Earth,
you even scaled the stinking sulfur mountains of Hell.
And yet...

Mars haunts the skyline of your every dream, and Earth
has been left a massive waste; crops won't grow. Attempts
to repopulate yield bizarre, unpredictable results. It's as
if Hell has wormed its way into the bedrock of the planet.

To make matters worse, one of the UAC's last functioning
terrestrial facilities--which was researching these crises--
went dark 48 hours ago. No one knows for sure what
happened down there, but one look at the reports and
you have a pretty good idea.

Facilities flooded with human blood; soldiers mutilated
into satanic effigies; a tank-sized beast wandering the
complex. Ah Hell, you've seen this B-movie before.

They're sending you in, again, to find out what happened
to the research team. This time, they're not even
going to bother sending backup.

So I slapped on my leather chaps and played this on my work PC. It plays really well and has some very tough battles. Although, there were a couple traps that made me scoff.

Seriously, good work. I am patiently waiting for the next few episodes. The only real suggestion I have is just the lift on MAP05 after grabbing the red key. It lowers, you stand on it, but you still take damage from the floor. I was a bit miffed because it was health I would like to have saved for remnants punching me in the face.

Plus I would have liked to see more leather textures. Or leather monsters. Or leather guns. Or leather everything. You become leather.

Strange no one's said anything. I'm a few levels in and absolutely loving this! Old school design, interesting layouts, perfect level of challenge even for a supreme casual like myself, perfect enemy count, and cool music! I think you've done a great job here so far, and I'm very much looking forward to the rest of the episodes. A+++ 7/5 would play again.

I like at times the maps feel very Ultimate Doom and other times feel very Hell on Earth!
