Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Go east from the start room, and continue along the path until you reach a room with a staircase. The western wall of this room has a secret door (marked with a different texture) leading to an armor and a switch. The switch briefly lowers a super shotgun on a platform at the top of the stairs. (sector 248)
  2. From the central lift, jump through the western teleporter and continue along the twisty path. There is a secret door on your left (marked with a different texture) just before you reach the intersection, leading to a room with 24 health bonuses. There is a door to the south of this room (which can be opened from both sides) leading to the path south of the intersection. (sector 246)
