I actually did love that level, you running for safety as the barrels explode around you, but I realized something about the music of that level. The song "Them Bones" from Alice in Chains' album "Dirt", sort of sounds like the music in this level! Not sure if they intended that to happen, but damn, the similarities are there!

Love the level for how challenging it is.

It's actually possible to get away without taking a single point of damage at the beginning of the level without running away. Takes some practice, but you can do it if you shoot the center barrel before the mancubus does.

Not enough barrels, though.

Theoretically, I'd assume you shoot the centre barrel(s), then move forward after it explodes and pushes the surrounding barrels away. By the time the chain-reaction of explosions works it's way around to behind you, you're well out of harm's way.

Theoretically, remember. Explosion power is erratic, and such a tactic is a pointless endeavour when an easier (and far safer) option is available.

Sorry, getting all strategic. That's what happens when you play Survival with cack-handed mugs though; you end up becoming a Skulltag Sargeant and spout advice at every god-damn opportunity.

That's the trick. And as you said, it's not always guaranteed to work. Most of the time I escape with above 90% health left, though.

It's fun to try, even if it is pointless.

Mazedude's Remix of the song, better than the original. His done others with Doom II, Wolf3d and a lot of other games.

Eh, not a fan of that remix. Not at all. Far too erratic for my tastes, and I can't play the game along to it without switching window and turning the ear-splitting crap off.

This one's my favourite version:

Here's the real question. Has anyone managed to beat this level on an ultra-violence pistol start? I have never to this day been able to do it.

You see that link in my first comment?

No, obviously not.
