Description: Doom II level based on the original Baltimore Photon, which closed down in 1992. Created this level using the actual building blue-prints, scaled to 16 units per foot. Photon is coming back, with 2 locations opening soon in the Baltimore, MD/Washington, D.C. area within the next 6 months!

This is dated January 1996. It's based on a laser tag arena, with an arcade, concessions stand, parking lot etc. It suffers from the obvious problem whereby it's not quite complicated enough to be a satisfying single-player level (you fight to one end of the main building though a bunch of weak baddies, flick a switch, and then go back to the start) but it's too complicated and cramped to work in deathmatch. Fun for five minutes though.x
Not too bad for a mid 90s PWAD. Not too hard but a bit cramped.x
I used to go play photon as a kid. It was a blast (rotten pun), and this wad actually mimics the "arena" pretty well. Not the best doom level, but as a trip down memory lane it certainly brings back middle-school memories.x
