Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the main area, cross the bridge to the north and use the northwest wall with brown vines to find a teleporter. This takes you behind the starting point where you will get a soul sphere. (sector 5)
  2. In the yellow key room, open the yellow bar, then before entering the teleporter, flip the switch. Quickly enter the teleporter, then jump to the main area to the south. Run all the way southwest into the open door before it closes. In this small corridor, use the switch, then teleport back. Approach the central platform to lower it, then ride up to get a berserk pack. (sector 35)
