Quake is an excellent example of a good FPS game. The only thing I could think to add would be stereo positioning of the wall scrapes so you know exactly where that wall is and can get away from it. Okay, I thought of another thing. I'd be willing to give up my axe for a bouncing ball that when you let it go, it bounces all the way down to the end of the hallway, hits the wall and either stops or zooms down the next corridor, stopping when it's out of hearing range.

Peter,

Is there anything specifically about FPS games like Shades of Doom that confuses you. Any specific reason why you get lost, and anything I can do as a developer to make it easier for gamers like you to get full enjoyment out of the game?

I will say this about Shades of Doom though. Shades of Doom is a poor example of an FPS title, because the levels were intended to be a maze. In other words they are not logically layed out as a typical building, and I believe David Greenwood intentially made the levels difficult to navigate to add extra challenge to the game. Now, when anyone says FPS they automatically do the, "I can't do that because Shades of Doom is too hard," even though most levels in sighted FPS games aren't quite that complex to navigate.

I think what is needed for people who have troubles with FPS games you need a simple example of an FPS game with a more normal layout. Rooms that aren't mazes and are more or less like you would find in real life. That said I personally like the maze factor as it really does add some additional challenge to the game.

Smile.
