Review by Kim Robinson on 11th March 2008
With the help of edited CON files and Devastator's penchant for violence, Demolition is more than likely the most gory and explosive map you've ever seen. The level begins with Duke cruising on into town on his bike, crashing through gates and ploughing through bad guys all in nicely explosive fashion - the scene is set for the rest of the level to unfold. Almost every street building you see in the beginning is susceptible to being blown up, and at a few points putting gaping holes in walls is actually necessary to continue. This is my kind of level.
At first it seems that the sheer number of enemies thrown at you will make staying alive impossible, however you get several weapon upgrades which make things easier - and a lot more fun. Probably most noticeable is that every projectile weapon now causes an explosion on impact; it sounds like this might make things too easy but it evens out quite nicely, and with buildings collapsing around you it all just adds to the destructive atmosphere. Also highly mentionable is that use of steroids grants you "invulnerability and insane rage" - this is surely a sight to behold.
Puzzles are quite standard - find three cards hidden through-out the level, being sure to blow up anything that looks even remotely destructible in the process to find all the goodies. The pre- and post-explosion buildings look good, quite a feat of ingenuity really, and level layout isn't too open-ended as to make where to go next unobvious (as is the case with some city maps). Weapon/ammo to monster ratio is such that you'll never find yourself without enough firepower, but this luxury is offset by the comparative scarcity of health - so stay on your toes.
Definitely a winner, be sure to check this out.
NB: Ensure you run the appropriate .BAT file located in the archive to play this map.

====================================================================== THIS LEVEL IS NEITHER MADE BY OR SUPPORTED BY 3D REALMS. Title : Demolition Filename : DEMOL.map ///////////*****************///// READ BEFORE RUNNING THE MAP: Better use jonof's polymost engine (just turn polymost on in video settings) You need only jonof's duke3d port to run the map (i'm not sure everything will be ok with original dos one) •Weapons modified to bring total annihilation: -SHRINKER transformed into antimater-gun (I hope you know what is antimatter? No? - Bomb similar to ones used on Hirosima and Nagasaki but filled with antimatter will evaporate approximately 1/2 of eart's surface) - so use carefully. when matter and antimatter come together their mass all transforms into energy E = mc^2 -Devastator remade to correspond its name. -Pipebomb and Freezer.. well, you'll see -STEROIDS! USE STEROIDS! they will give you invulnerability and insane rage! -Now you can run map with .BAT file \\\\\\\\\\*****************///// Author : Devastator E-mail : omnispark at gmail dot com; thejustice at tut dot by Web Page : no Misc. Author Info : NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE Other Levels : A.S.S Dawn in Arctic, Alien4-resurrection, Total infiltration ep. etc. Description : Well.. This map begins when i left duke building for the first time it was.. 2005 ??! well, it doesn't matter. My soul yearned for explosions.. more explosions, MORREE!! simple placing of oozfilters and seenines is very bothering so i added more - with con editing. And DESTRUCTION! EVERYTHING BOOW UP! EVERYTHING IS DESTROYED! but, this happiness of seeing everything destructed turned out to be unpleasant... Maybe this level is last, or maybe not.. who knows?....
