Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the central tower, from the entrance, climb the steps up, ignoring the first door you see and then climbing the northeast stairs. Follow the armor bonuses until you find two sets of stairs, where you should go up the set going south. Then, go down the steps going west and use the right of the two bookshelves. This will lower a wall allowing you to use a lift to get a soul sphere. (sector 367)
  2. In the central tower, at the main hall, take the steps to the east and face the north wall. Press it to reveal some steps going up. (sector 334)
  3. Ascend the steps from the previous secret and a lift will lower at the top. This is the second light gray block further on, which is a teleporter. Take it to reach a secret room. (sector 1656)
  4. On the way to the red key, if you go into the hall behind the super shotgun platform and look at the water pool in the southwest corner, you can spot an indentation. Shoot this indentation, then head back out into the cavern and head for the southeast corner to find a berserk pack and a backpack. (sector 1297)
  5. In the yellow key area, head to the northeast corner and enter the passage with two rockets. Approach the green wall for it to lower, then go through the next hall and out towards the tree. Once you are in the main hall of the yellow key area, go to the southernmost portion of the area to find an open room containing a green armor, a plasma gun, and a box of rockets. (sector 1381)
  6. In the main hall of the central tower, open the door on the high ledge with blue markings around it and take the steps to reach the library. Go to the second set of bookshelves and find the floor marking in the back that is different from the rest. Press on the bookshelf where this floor marking is, then go to the southeast corner of the room to find four rockets and an energy cell. (sector 1485)
  7. At the tower with the blue key, if you go towards the southeastern teleporter and approach it from the south side, you can get a megasphere. (sector 1058)
