The Hall of the Wretched Pox is the ninth level (slot eight) of Catacomb Armageddon (1992). It is set within a brown brick maze lined with flambeaus and infested with slimy green monsters, the titular Wretched Pox.


"This level has an overground hall theme that is quite nice with the brick walls and the flambeaus. It is very nice to say the least. The designers made excellent use of the palette here. This is one of the examples that EGA graphic CAN look great whereas they usually look unsatisfying. While in most themes it shows that they could have looked much better with more colors, it's all fine and well here with only 16 colors available. There are evil eyes as enemies besides the pox-things. These beholders have the ability to shoot and while their shots are weak and flying slowly, they can be a threat if you are unwary!"

  • A pox is disease characterized by purulent skin eruptions that may leave pockmarks. Poxviridae are a family of viruses. Humans, vertebrates, and arthropods serve as natural hosts. There are currently 69 species in this family, divided among 28 genera, which are divided into two subfamilies. Diseases associated with this family include smallpox. Four genera of poxviruses may infect humans: orthopoxvirus, parapoxvirus, yatapoxvirus, molluscipoxvirus. Other forms only infect animals. Other diseases, such as syphilis and chickenpox, are also known by the term, but are not true pox viruses.
