voodoo dolls

Post by paulgilb » 26.02.2003 10:15

Something Opulent mailed me about:

Some levels have 'voodoo dolls': things that look like players, but whatever happens to them happens to you as well. They appear in hr19 (which picks up all the weapons at the start) and in av25 (one is lowered to the invulnerability that becomes yours, and another grabs the megasphere in the eastern secret area). There is also a visible one in wreck.wad, which allows you to kill yourself by telefragging it.

Are there any other levels with these in?

I *think* Requiem level 21 (Den of the Skull) uses a voodoo doll for the dark area where you're teleported and instantly killed if you step outside a path onto some red texture...

Jan van der Veken's Dawn Of The Dead(for UDooM) has one in E1M3. A teleporter marked with a warning sign...

Dario Casali's Punisher 2 has one at the end, surrounded by several barrels which block the exit. The only way to survive is to grab an Invulnerability first...

Plutonia Map 6 and TNT Map 18 - the dolls get the weapons

TNT Map 30 - the puzzle at the beginning, cross the wrong line and you telefrag your voodoo doll

There are several maps in the old cult classic This SUXX! which have voodoo dolls.
