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. In the official add-on version, this level's name is Searching. This level is the first of the episode's hub interludes, and contains no monsters or secret areas.


Map of Tower in the Fountain of Sparks I
Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef 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.
