Doom: The Text Adventure
« on: December 16, 2011, 19:45 »

(Anybody can jump in and do stuff; I'll try to resolve things in the order that they're done.)
----
Thanks to Game Hunter, we have a "Quick Overview Section"!
Spoiler: Game Overview (click to show/hide)

----
The surface of Mars is dry and nearly barren. Looking up from the Hangar Grounds at Phobos Base, you can easily see where the Canals once lay.

You arrived on Phobos Base less than an hour ago, and you've been sizing up the situation from a safe location. One of UAC's experiments went, well, haywire, and unleashed some sort of hell upon Phobos Base.

Literally, hell. Some of your buddies from the Academy have been trying to shoot you dead ever since you got here. They appear to have become brainless, mindless, soulless sons of bitches. Nobody sane from inside Phobos Base is responding to your comm calls - all you've been getting is variations of "We're coming for you."

It looks like it will be all uphill from here.


INVENTORY:
100 HP
0 Armor Points
1 Standard-Issue Pistol
50 Bullets

VISIBLE ENEMIES:
No visible enemies

VISIBLE DOORS:
Entrance to Phobos Base - Hangar

LOOK PISTOL

IDKFA

OPEN DOOR

All caps is fine.
-------
Your Pistol is a standard-issue pea-shooter. Both the UAC and the Marine Corps issue these to their people in case of human activity. The activity here on the Martian Bases, however, is decidedly not human, so you will want something with a bit more punch. Still, it's good in a pinch, and there weren't any of UAC's more advanced experiments here on Phobos Base anyway.
-------
You chant "IDKFA... IDKFA... IDKFA...", but it doesn't appear to do anything here.
-------
As you enter Phobos Base, the smell of carnage and death washes over you. Despite your training, you can't help but gag at the smell. Some things can never be gotten used to.

You tense up as you hear movement. There is a small place in the wall where you could probably hide; with any luck, you'll be able to shoot first without being shot at in return.

Yes. Yes it could. I'm probably going to stop this at the Bruiser Brothers, if we manage to get that far.

What do those 5 stats between the brackets mean? I figured out the 1st and 4th but what's the rest mean?

Btw: This is a pretty fun idea but I'm a little afraid it'll get horribly repetitive. Cuz it's... y'know... Doom. :P

If you don't specify a weapon with which to shoot, you'll default to using the pistol (or, if you don't have bullets, your strongest melee weapon). You don't need to explicitly "Equip" the pistol.

You shoot at Former Human #2. You hit Former Human #1 instead for 10 damage. Former Human #1's body ragequits.

Former Human #2 shoots at you. His shot misses.


INVENTORY:
100 HP
0 Armor Points
1 Standard-Issue Pistol
49 Bullets

VISIBLE ENEMIES:
Former Human #1 (Dead) (0%) (-50%) (Pistol) (18)
Former Human #2 (100%) (0%) (+50%) (Pistol) (17)

VISIBLE DOORS:
Entrance to Phobos Base - Outside
Sliding Door - Hangar Room 2 (Open)

Heh... I "missed".
How much hp do they have exactly? And does the pistol always make 10 damage?

#2 was standing sort-of behind #1. I should have called it "Chance to Avoid" rather than "Chance to Hit" from the beginning, it's largely there to help me remember positioning.

You shoot at Former Human #2. You hit for 1 damage.

Former Human #2 shoots at you. He misses.

Argh... you think you can mess with me, former human, but you're WRONG! For I'm fucking DOOMGUUUY!

PS: 100 rage points = berserk? :P
PPS: Where's that place with the green armor in the starting room, anyway?
