Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Head straight for the bars at the start (east) and use them, then quickly run back to the door where the starting point is (west) and use the teleporter to reach a megaarmor. (sector 554)
  2. From the same area where Secret #1 is, head north and then open the door to the west. As you descend the steps, a closet in front of you will open. Inside this closet, press on the eastern wall with slime on it to trigger a lift. The secret room has health bonuses and ammo. (sector 150)
  3. In the blue key area, head for the northeast corner and notice the skull that has no red eyes. Use this skull, then run west as quickly as you can and through the opening southwest from the skull. Drop down to get a soul sphere. (sector 258)
  4. From the west entrance to the small cave at the east end of the map, drop down to the ledge to the south and head around the stalagmite to the recessed wall. Go through it to find partial invisibility. (sector 350)
