Map of Hell on Earth
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


You begin in the middle of a city dotted with skyscrapers. Waiting behind the outer ring of buildings are several spiderdemons along with demons, barons of Hell and other monsters; get them to infight while you collect weapons and supplies. Plasma guns can be found behind the two buildings on your right as the level starts, chainguns can be found on the east side of the city, shotguns can be found on the south side and rocket launchers can be found south-west of the starting point.

Once all the spiderdemons are killed, a star-shaped red brick structure due south of the starting point will lower to reveal two to four cyberdemons and a gargoyle switch. Kill or avoid the cyberdemons as you press the switch, then return to the building in the middle of the city to find that the pentagram wall on its north side has lowered. Go into the skin passage and step on the patch of sky at the end to finish the game.

Other points of interest[edit]

There are three stepped red rocks around the level that have different items on them. The rock due west of the starting point holds a berserk pack, the rock in the south-west corner holds an invulnerability and the rock in the south-east area holds a supercharge (or another invulnerability on I'm Too Young To Die and Hey Not Too Rough skill levels).


There are no official secrets on this map.
