Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the marble room and approach the north face. Use the red torch to lower the central block, then go on it to hear something lower. Go through the north face to get a megaarmor. (sector 156)
  2. In the central dark room, head to the south side. Enter the dark passage and when it bends east, open the brown wall to find a soul sphere, invulnerability, or partial invisibility depending on your skill level. (sector 512)
  3. Head east from Secret #2 and northeast, dropping into a pit. Cross the nukage and press the eye switch at the north end. Instead of using the lift to go up, head back and through the newly-opened passage to get a super shotgun, shotgun shells, and stimpacks. (sector 251)
  4. In the round hall at the southeast end, press on the southeast wall to find an invulnerability. (sector 373)
  5. In the wood room leading to the red key, head up the left set of steps and jump to the leftmost torch to the north. Open the west wall to find a teleporter to a megasphere. (sector 52)
