Well, it must not necessarily have been a switch but when stepping onto the 128x128 Demonic Teleporter, the Level End Special could have just been invoked. IMO, if I had had to design E1M8, I would have let Doomguy teleported to ... uh, E1M10 (showing "The Deimos Base" in intermission), a very small map where there is just a Level End Special 'round the corner and then pops up the text ("you're supposed to win, aren't ya aren't ya" or so).
Like, you get the first taste of E2 style, and that is enough for the Shareware :P

No need. Instead of just a dark square room full of baddies, they could easily have built a small portion of E2M1 into E1M8 and used the very same special to damage you and end the game. Of course, that would mean that people who own the full version get the "teaser" AND the full level... Kind of odd.

This wouldn't fit into the plot established in the books. ;)

Zell: If you die in that part, you won't be able to go to E2M1. That's odd. But as Doom allows, you might respawn on the same level if you die :]

I liked the first two. The last two just tried too hard to put the story in some kind of "believable" context and ended up boring me to tears in the process.

Well it's been a long time since I've read them.. The last two definately aren't as good as the first two. But that's just because the first two are in a setting we're familiar with. Ok it's not JUST because of that... but I wouldn't want to spoil it for anyone ;-)

It's enough to say that you may not like them a whole bunch or as much as the first two, there are a couple of things in them that are a big stretch, but in my opinion the books aren't completely horrible, I mean I didn't hate them... if they were, I wouldn't have read them all the way through!
