Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The room south of the red key room has two stimpacks. The wall to the north of these is a secret door, leading to a chainsaw. (sector 54)
  2. South-east of the yellow key is a secret lift which immediately leads nowhere - however, approaching the energy cell east of the south-western red door opens up this area, leading to a route into the red key room. (sector 269)
  3. The building immediately south of the blue key has a secret door on its western side, leading to a lift to a switch. The switch simply lowers the lift, however on turning round you will see another switch, which opens up a door allowing access to the area surrounding the blue key area. (sector 228)


Demo files[edit]

The release includes a separate demo file, CORTYR_B.LMP, by the author. It requires Doom v1.2 to be viewed and runs for 14:19.89 (30096 tics), showing off the level on Ultra-Violence.
