Secrets[edit]

  1. There is a large rectangular blue pool in the east. From here, walk outside and round to the south and west. Go up either of the two staircases and then up another staircase to the west (possibly going through a door). Go down a lift until you reach a door. Go to the left-hand window and shoot the red stripe that is visible. This will open the door, leading to a room with two imps, a shotgun guy, a yellow key, a megaarmor and a backpack. (sector 185)
  2. There is a maze in the north-east whose walls (which can be lowered by a switch) contain various health, armor and ammo items. To the east is a room behind a yellow door with a supercharge on a platform. In order to access it, you need to press the switch in this room and the switches in the nearby rooms behind the red and blue doors (the blue key is located in one of the columns connected by walkways in the northern part of the level). The section lowered by the switch behind the blue door counts as a secret. Note that in order to obtain the supercharge, the switches need to be pressed in the order red, blue, yellow (as indicated in the corridor prior to this area). (sector 173)

Bugs[edit]

  • In sector #149 near the maze before the end, you may crawl.
