Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The room south of the blue door has various demon faces on the walls. Some of these open up as doors on shooting, revealing three separate secret rooms. The one in the north-east contains 1-3 demons, a plasma rifle, and an energy cell. (sector 191)
  2. The secret room in the north-west (see #1) contains 1-5 imps and a megaarmor. (sector 187)
  3. The secret room in the south-west (see #1) contains 1-3 zombiemen and a partial invisibility. (sector 201)
  4. The remaining demon face doors in the room south of the blue door open up on pressing a switch. The north-western one (next to #2) leads to a room with a small alcove with a face on it. Shooting this face opens it, leading to a stimpack, a rocket launcher, three rockets, and a route back to the blue key area. (sector 226)
