Map of Courtyard
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.




  1. Right behind you, at the start, is a secret door leading to a lift which leads to a small area with a bag and a morph ovum. There are some monsters up there, though, so you may want to leave this secret for later.
  2. After getting the yellow key, two rooms will open up to the west and south. They contain ammo and health.
  3. See above secret #2
  4. Behind the yellow door is a room with stained glass windows. There's also a switch in there; if you hit it, the northwest window will change. You can now walk through it to come to a room with four teleporters and a map.


The following location does not count as a secret:

  1. In the same room as secret #4, open the throne to find a hidden door to a shield, and a teleporter to health, an urn, and a ring.
