MAP07: The Cube (The Abyss)
|The Abyss maps 01-11|
MAP07: The Cube is the seventh level of The Abyss. It was designed by Miklos de Rijk (H2SO4), features Dead Simple mechanics, and shares a similar layout. This level is technically a beginner's trap, since it cannot be completed unless the player knows the behavior of the rising square steps.
While this level is similar to Dead Simple, the player must be able to reach the center of the arena as soon as the last arachnotron is killed. If the player does not reach the center in time, the level cannot be completed without cheating.

- The next sector with ammo surrounding the exit also counts as a secret, and it rises up after killing all of the arachnotrons in the map. (sector 27)
