Description : You start out in a narrow hallway. As you
walk towards the center of the level you
are rewarded with a larger view of it.
You notice a rocket launcher in the very center.
You walk towards it but soon realize it is too
high for you to grab. There must be a way to get
to it. When you turn around to begin your search,
you notice a wall where you just came from.
Perhaps it was a door that came down behind You.
You probably didn't hear it because you were in
awe of the rocket launcher . You touch the
wall to test it. Your hand goes right thru! You
then walk thru the wall and realize it is only
an optical illusion. Further exploration will
help you to discover that they are all over the
place. They all seem to be visible only when
traveling away from the center of the level.
You think to yourself...If I was playing a
deathmatch I wouldn't want to be in the center
of this level for very long. Everybody would be
able to see me and I wouldn't be able to see them.
If I was shot at, I wouldn't know where the bullets
came from. I would be a sitting duck! I've got to
try this with some friends!

I started a new level 5/9/94. It began as a swastika. I added
duck blinds at at every turn. I set it up so that anybody that ran for the
rocket launcher at the center could be seen by everybody else. But the
runner would only see a room that was getting smaller and smaller as he ran
towards the center. I call it "where did that shot come from!".
