Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The opening staircase has a secret door on the outside of the northern turn (marked with a different texture) leading to an armor. (sector 29)
  2. #1 has a secret door in the west (marked with a different texture) leading to a room with a demon (not on easy skill) and a rocket launcher. (sector 33)
  3. Towards the north-west is a round rock pool with a lava pool in the centre, with fake walls on all sides. Go through the east wall and continue until you drop down into a room with 16 pillars. Go through the door in the south-east of this room and along the path until you reach a T-junction. Turn right (left leads to a teleporter back to normal territory) and continue through a door to reach a room with a backpack on a ledge.(sector 218)
  4. There is a secret door in the north-west of the room accessed by #3 (between the tall red firestick and the short green pillar) to reach a room with a rocket launcher, three shotguns, and some ammo. (sector 73)
  5. A section of the north wall of #4 has some pipes – it is a secret door leading to a box of rockets. (sector 83)
  6. West of the yellow key room is a room with a pain elemental in a cage inside some nukage. There is a teleporter in the nukage leading into this cage. From the cage, shoot the hanging victim in the south-east – this lowers a teleporter which takes you back to the area surrounding the nukage. The second teleporter counts as a secret - however, it is too small to receive credit for. (sector 266)


As secret #6 (see above) is too small to receive credit for, the maximum achievable secret percentage is 83%.

Inspiration and development[edit]


This is the first PWAD ever created by Sverre André Kvernmo, and the only one designed originally for Doom, rather than for Doom II.
