MAP05: Tower in the Fountain of Sparks I is the fifth level of the second episode of Back to Saturn X. It was designed by Xaser, and uses the music track "Mystproj" by Sarah Mancuso. This level is the first of the episode's hub interludes, and contains no monsters, items, or secret areas.


Map of Tower in the Fountain of Sparks I
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


Simply proceed forward across the bridge, and you'll arrive at a junction of three paths closed off by gates. Only the white gate straight ahead will lower, so go down that way. You come to a large field with a large temple structure in the centre, but much of it is inaccessible by a raised gate in this visit. Enter the base towards the west, and make your way through a cavern. You'll come out onto another bridge, with a base on the other side. Cross it to reach an exit door leading directly into the next map, MAP06: Useless Inventions.
