-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 5 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 4 of those were killed.

 Some rumours though, say that the Cyberdemon was killed already!
 Is he immortal? 1 souls claim to have killed him...
 1 showed that it can outsmart hell itself.

--------------------------------------------------------------

Trait order was: TaN 3 -> Eagle Eye 2 -> Intuition 3 -> SoaB 2 -> Ironman 1.
TaN helped a lot in my survival, and you know how Intuition 3 is just awesome. I just had one BFG, but lots of plasma rifles, and I didn't have lots of ammo, so I decided to go for SoaB. Later, I almost died in an arachnotron-ridden hellish cave, so I picked one point in Ironman, although I wasn't really hit after that.

I found the stairs to the Unholy Cathedral on lvl16, but I didn't have proper equipment (and I decided I wouldn't enter it anyway).
I found the stairs to the Mortuary on lvl22, but I didn't have too much ammo, and the rewards weren't worth the risk, being that close to the end.

To kill the Cybie, I tried firing that plasma rifle until I heard him scream (so that I hada clean line of vision to him), then I used 6 plasma rifles (which I had previously overcharged, to save time). I expected him to be dead at this point (6 overcharged rifles*20 shots=120 plasma shots, which are ID8+2 each, minus his armor), but he wasn't, so I got the BFG, and the first shot finished him off.

The worst moment happened on level 13 (I had Intuition 2 then) (I've changed the barrels to "o" here, so as not to confuse them with Cacodemons):

That's 2 Viles, 2 Barons, and 2 Cacodemons. I think I only saw the Vile on the left, so I fired a rocket at him, and when I reloaded, some shot from an enemy exploded some barrels, making the enemies on the left visible, and the Vile from the north appeared and raised the Baron on the south. The good thing is that I was standing on the stairs to the Wall, so I was about to flee, but I don't like leaving monsters alive. :-) Well, the Vile on the left was "Wounded", so I thought I'd try to kill him at least, and flee to the Wall when things were just too bad (I didn't think about the possibility of being knocked back away from the stairs, but TaN prevents that rather well). I fired a rocket at him, but killed nobody. Then, I switched to the BFG (good thing I got it in the Halls of Carnage), and fired two shots to the Vile on the left, which killed all the west monsters, and left the north Vile and the south Baron mortally wounded. Then, I switched to the plasma rifle, and finished the Vile and the Baron.

This is a screenshot after all of this:

-- General ---------------------------------------------------

 Before him 10 brave souls have ventured into Phobos:
 9 of those were killed.
 And 1 couldn't handle the stress and commited a stupid suicide.

--------------------------------------------------------------

This is my first victory, on the 11th game! :-) I didn't make it very far in my first 9 games (level 4 or 5 max.). On the 10th one, I got to level 15, where I was blasted by some arachnotrons really quickly when my armor got broken, as I hadn't picked any level at Tough as nails - this was why I maxed Tough as nails in this game.

Regarding this game, it was a strange one... I couldn't find a rocket launcher until level 15 (and I try not to explode any barrels unless I know there are no items in their radius), so I couldn't kill anyone in the Wall (but I did clean that level on the other game), and I couldn't go pass the locked doors at the Halls of Carnage, which meant no BGF for me in the whole game. In fact, I found a plasma rifle before the rocket launcher. Also, I didn't find any phase devices at all.

I just killed 399 out of 428 hellspawn, because of the closed areas at the Wall and the Halls of Carnage. I did clear any other level, though.

On a side note, I didn't pull any levers at all, because in my last game, one of the levers that I pulled filled the WHOLE level with acid, so pulling levers before the level is clear seems like a bad idea to me, and when the level is clear, the only "useful" lever would be the monster-spawning one, to get some Exp.

Regarding my traits: I got Cateye 2 (a cheater is me! ;-) ), then got Tough as nails 3, and then took Son of a bitch 1 - but then I noticed how much shots I missed with the plasma rifle, so I got Eagle Eye 1. I would have picked Son of a bitch 2, if I had leveled again, but I barely got to level 7.

I got to the final level with the weapons you see, and another 4 plasma rifles (I used to carry several of them so I didn't need to reload them, which was useful when several monsters were around, especially when entering a new level). I also had 4 large med-packs, 2 perfect red armors (one worn), and 100% health.

I had noticed you could overcharge plasma rifles, but hadn't actually tried it, so I decided to overcharge one at the start of the last level, and shoot it at the Cyberdemon to check what happened, because my lack of BFGs scared me. And that probably saved me - I destroyed 4 of my rifles this way, and then switched to my rocket launcher (because I didn't want to overcharge my last rifle, and just shooting it without overcharging first didn't look like a good idea), and after some rockets the beast fell. Well, maybe it sounds easy this way, because I skipped the part about getting blasted by rockets from him, and even getting myself thrown to the north wall, so the Cyberdemon didn't even need to aim at me then. :-P


Great game Kornel! I've had a lot of fun playing it - maybe I can find that secret level the next time, but the Cyberdemon didn't felt like cooperating. :-) (on a side note, the Cyberdemon is misspelled as Cyberdeamon in a few places - such as when you defeat it, and in the end-game text)
