MAP03: Toxin Refinery is the third level of most console versions of Doom, based on the original E1M3: Toxin Refinery with modifications made to accommodate consoles' limitations. The author of the conversion is American McGee, and the original authors of the map are Tom Hall and John Romero. The map first appeared in Atari Jaguar version, and is additionally used in the 3DO, Sega 32X, Game Boy Advance, Sony PlayStation, and Sega Saturn versions.

This level contains a secret exit leading to MAP24: Military Base. The Sony PlayStation and Sega Saturn ports will lead to MAP56: Military Base instead, which is same conversion having another map slot.

Comparison of versions[edit]

Aside from simplification of level geometry, the main significant change compared to the PC version is to the donut-shaped walkway. In the PC version, the walkway is surrounded by a deep, inescapable nukage pit, and has a "hole" in the centre which can be raised and made non-damaging with a switch. In the console version, the walkway is surrounded by a very shallow nukage pool, and the "hole" is not present.
