Walkthrough[edit]

Map of UAC Executive Areas, Recreation Area/Yard
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.

Essentials[edit]

At the start go forward, turn left at the intersection and go down the stairs. Continue to the right and go through the door on the left to collect the yellow key. Turn around, enter the outside area and go to the opposite end to reach the yellow door. Open the door, take either stairway in front, to the sides, then make your way towards the blue key. Exit this room, go to the left and go up the stairs to your right to find the blue door on the right. Open it, grab the red key, then move towards either the unlocked door or the yellow door to find the red door in front. Go through it, climb up the stairs and continue down the hallway until you see the exit door to your left. Inside is the exit switch.

Secrets[edit]

  1. At the intersection near the start go down the stairs to your right. Once you reach the bottom of the stairs look to your right. The wall is misaligned, so open it and climb up the stairs to trigger the secret. (sector 67)
  2. From secret #1, walk on the computer banks until you reach the last one. It will lower, leading to a room containing a supercharge. (sector 73)
  3. After collecting the yellow key, exit the room and go to the right. A section of the right wall is misaligned, open it and climb up the stairs to trigger the secret. (sector 214)
  4. Open the door at the top of the stairs from secret #3 to reach a vantage point overlooking the yellow key area. (sector 103)
  5. After collecting the red key, go through the red door on the west side of the level. A section of the left wall is misaligned, so open it to see some stairs. The second step is the secret sector, which is too narrow to be triggered. (sector 227)
  6. Climb up the stairs from secret #5 and open the door to reach another vantage point overlooking the yellow key area. (sector 98)
