Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Exit the starting room, then open a wall immediately south of the door you came from to get a green armor. (sector 197)
  2. Head behind the red key platform, then drop into the hold and use the north wall to lower it. You will find five health bonuses and five armor bonuses. (sector 509)
  3. In the large cave at the north end, head all the way northwest, staying on the south side, until you find a switch. This will raise some steps at the southeast end of the cave, which lead to a soul sphere. (sector 541)
