Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The room with the switch that opens up the long room near the start counts as a secret and is impossible to miss. (sector 62)
  2. #1 has a door to the south leading to a corridor with a box of shotgun shells and 1-3 imps. (sector 204)
  3. The room opened by #1 has a secret door in the far east leading to 0-2 imps and three boxes of bullets (one on easy skill). (sector 207)
  4. Getting the yellow key opens up several rooms, one of which contains a backpack which lowers on approaching. Collecting the backpack opens up a room to the north. This room has a niche to the east, the back wall of which is a secret door leading to a computer area map. (sector 200)
  5. Immediately south of the door leading into the blue key area (which requires the blue key to open from the blue key side) is a niche to the west, the back wall of which is a secret door leading to a medikit. (sector 202)
