|Perdition's Gate maps 21-30|
MAP30: The Escape is the thirtieth map of Perdition's Gate.
Plot: You've started the 2 minute countdown. You see no exit, so you sit down and await death. Until you notice an open door behind you.. quick!
You've set the bomb and got two minutes to escape or you will die.
As soon as you move a wall will open revealing a Demon, every weapon and a way out. Run up the stairs, dodging bad guys that teleport in, until you reach a room with two large metal cylinders and a blocked passage way. As you enter this room both the cylinders and the blockage will begin to lower revealing a pair of Cyberdemons.
Hold out against them and any other bad guys that enter the room from the way you came in until the blockage has lowered revealing an Arch-Vile. Behind him down the end of the corridor is the exit.
Contray to what the computer voice might suggest, you've actually got two minuites to escape from when you first move, rather than two minuites from the start of the map.
Other points of interest
There are no secret's on this map.
It is possible that one or both Cyberdemon's will get stuck by walking onto the lowering parts of their platform, as they lower. This renders them harmless.
One can hug the south edge of the bomb console to get around, and hence avoid activating, the trigger that activates the crusher that controls the "countdown". However the only way someone would realize this is possible is by examining the map in an editor.
