This level involves running around a small, wooden house, humping the walls for secret doors and setting off tripwires to find a key with which you can open the door leading to the exit and escape. Well, it would, except that the exit door doesn't need any keys. Um, oops? As if to make up for it, though, it's found behind another hidden door that you will never find in a million years. Either way, it's a worthless level* with very little challenge, and it should be skipped at all costs unless you just /have/ to play every single level in the idgames/ archive. Y'know, like what I'm doing for the levels/doom/ tree.

Previous exits for UV max were 1:49, 1:44, 1:40, and 1:37. No matter what you do, how swiftly you finish the level comes down to how quickly the baron and cacodemon fight each other. You'll also have to keep your eyes peeled for any shotgunners as you leave the house, or you might miss one. Note that I end the level with 0% Secrets, as nothing in this level is flagged as one. That's right, not even the "secret area" where I kill the last demon. Of course, by now, that's the least of this level's flaws.

* It's tempting to defend this level by saying that, as stated in the WAD's INFO.TXT, "Erick" made this level in "about 8 hours." If you do, let me remind you that Jon "40oz" Vail took six fewer hours to make "Those crates are full of staplers" than this guy did, and it outclasses this crap by orders of magnitude. Jon's many, many birthday maps each took only four hours longer /at best,/ and all of them are worthy gifts for their recipients. Search for "40oz" on the idgames/ frontend and check 'em out.
