Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head west on the path south of Silo 1. Jump on the south wall when you can and jump southwest onto the ledge. Head south to get fizz-o pop. (sector 132)
  2. At the west side, you need to make a jump to the rock at the west end to get a devil sphere. It is much easier to do this if you still have the Power-zade from near the starting point. (sector 201)
  3. In the north room with crates, head to the large crate stack at the southwest end, then jump north to a few stacks there. Jump up, then onto the left ledge that has alumoonium armor. (sector 527)
  4. In the north room with crates, head to the center and jump down while in the center (at the southeast end of the central part). Head east and south, then take the teleporter to get Hellshells and a silly sphere. (sector 676)
  5. In the north room with crates, head to the dark corner at the southwest end behind crates to get a Fizz-o pop. (sector 1202)
  6. In the north room with crates, go to the southwest, behind a large crate with a brick armor, to find a Fizz-o pop. (thing 561 via "secret trigger" thing 584)
