Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The south and west of the large circular room containing the exit contain alcoves with imps. After killing the imps, shoot the back walls of these alcoves. These will open paths to the north and south (in order to be able to access the northern path, it is necessary to drop down to the small pit by the evil eye in the east of the exit room, open the secret door to the south of the eye, then press the switch – pressing the switch then revealed allows access back to normal territory, with a switch en route that needs to be pressed). The north and south paths both lead to dark rooms with arrows on the floors – these point to switches which open up nearby teleporters. The other side of the switches from these teleporters are secret doors leading to rooms with octagonal platforms, both of which count as secrets. The northern one contains some ammo, a berserk and an armor. (sector 468)
  2. The southern room (see #1) contains a soul sphere and a megaarmor. (sector 474)
  3. The teleporters (see #1) take you to areas (visible from the early part of the level) with several rocky podiums in nukage. It is possible to jump over these podiums and through nukage waterfalls. There are secret walls ahead which lower on pressing, ultimately leading to teleporters taking you to further platforms above damaging floors. (sector 105)
  4. See #3. (sector 107)
  5. Each platform (see #3) has a trap containing some cacodemons – the southern one can be jumped into, leading to a computer area map. (sector 482)
  6. To leave these areas (see #3), jump onto the damaging floors, and go through the sections of wall with slight kinks in them – 30 seconds after stepping off the incoming teleporters, these will open, leading to teleporters back to the first groups of podiums (it is possible to jump back to the central cross). The pillars in the north and south of the central cross will have lowered – on stepping onto these pillars, doors will open, allowing access to further rooms with monsters. (sector 378)
  7. See #6. (sector 408)
