Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head onto the wall west of the castle entrance. From there, climb the steps and cross the bridge heading west and north towards the lift. Instead of taking the lift down, look right and use the misaligned wall for a passage leading up to energy cells and a plasma gun. (sector 1918)
  2. At the northwest high terrace, which is just north of the boat where the blue key is, run east and spot a switch just before you head indoors. Use it and keep heading east to the floating skull rock. A wall will have lowered here, take the lift down and get the megasphere. (sector 3220)
