In total the WAD is 840 KB (860,469 bytes), has 42 monsters, 1 secret, and 17 items. The WAD uses a MIDI version of Metallica's Master Of Puppets, from their third studio album, released in 1986 by Elektra Records, along with Master Of Puppets, the WAD also uses a MIDI version of "The Thing That Should Not Be", also from 1986's Master Of Puppets album.

The WAD was made to be played in QZDoom, as it uses abilities that are not possible in the vanilla Doom engine (like using room-over-room).
