Other points of interest[edit]


  1. When you teleport to the part of the map with the staircase, walk down it and look left for a staircase leading upwards to a blur artifact. You will notice a small block near this staircase. Climb to the top and then jump on the block and you will hear a door opening. Head back to the big room and you will notice an opening to the left. Head into this blue-floored room for a medikit and two health bonuses. (sector 51)
  2. If you press the gray wall to the south of Secret #1, you will trigger a lift leading up to an oval-shaped area where you can get a soul sphere. (sector 105) Should you wish to get it, do not fall into the blood before pressing the switch, otherwise you will not be able to escape.
  3. Press the switch that is to the right of the exit room, then head back to where the blue keycard was. You will find a new alcove in this area where you can obtain a red skull key (do not stand in the alcove for long though because it is a damaging sector). After getting the key, head for the room directly north and open the alcoves where the monsters ambush you if you have not opened them already. Then head for the red door in the northeast alcove to teleport to the secret sector. (sector 57) You will find a few monsters here as well as a berserk pack.
