Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The central hut in the map counts as a secret. Jump to it and inside you can find an invulnerability. (sector 413)
  2. After you open the portal to the end area, before going to it, go back to the center of the map to find another portal in the middle. Take it to find a soul sphere and a megaarmor in a void area. (sector 856)
  3. See Secret #2. This secret is actually underneath the platforms and is inaccessible without cheating. (sector 862)
