MAP09: As the Doctor Sleeps is the ninth map of Community Chest 3. It was designed by Paul Corfiatis. The title is a pun, as the level's design is significantly influenced by that of John Anderson, also known as Dr. Sleep.

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Near the switch north of the yellow key is a patch of wall at the east that shows up as a different color on the automap. Open it to find a teleporter leading to a supercharge at the northeast of the courtyard. (sector 599)
  2. At the foot of the staircase to the blue key, there is a wall at the south which has less prominent gaps in one spot. Press on the middle of this wall to find a medikit and a box of bullets. (sector 626)
  3. To the northeast of the blue key is a flesh and metal wall that appears as a different color on the automap. Jump to it from the platform with the blue key, and open it to find a medikit, armor, a box of bullets, a box of shells, a backpack, and a chainsaw. (sector 623)
  4. Once you gain access to the cave, start at the entrance into the cave, and take four steps down. Doing this causes a door to open at the northwest of the previous area. Quickly exit the cave and run through the door before it closes to enter a room with a rocket launcher and 15 rockets. (sector 636)
  5. At the northwest of the last room before the exit, the second column of panels from the west on the northern wall appears as a different color on the automap. It can be opened, leading into a room containing nine energy cells and a plasma gun. (sector 659)
