Other points of interest[edit]


  1. As the level starts, turn slightly to the left and walk straight forward until you go over the edge. You should land on a square island with a megasphere. (sector 591)
  2. After entering the main building make a left at the evil eye then turn right to enter a corridor with pipe walls on either side. Use the west wall with scorches on it (sector 592) to open a chamber with a spectre and demon, enter it then turn right to find a lift leading up to a backpack and a box of rockets.
  3. On the north side of the map is a staircase that goes down to an area with three other paths to choose from - two sets of steps that are opposite each other, or a short bend with an evil eye to the right. Go to the eye and run south to a ledge with imps, press the skull switch then go due east to a lift and ride it back up to the top of that staircase; part of the east wall has lowered letting you drop down to a megaarmor and two energy cells. (sector 197)
  4. After entering the water maze at the north end of the map, make a left to enter the room with the lift then press the wall in the north-west corner to open it and reveal a teleporter. (sector 517) Press the button in the south-east corner to lower the lift, enter the teleporter then run forward to collect a megasphere that has lowered.
  5. North of the blue key door is a balcony. Stand on this balcony and look south to shoot an evil eye in front of you, which will reveal a lion switch to your right. Pressing this switch will lower a platform with imps; step on the platform and wait for it to rise then run west to reach a supercharge in a wall opening. (sector 274)
  6. When you reach the gray ledge leading to the red skull key, instead of leaping across to the key walk west to drop down to a platform with a BFG9000, a stimpack and an energy cell. (sector 256)
  7. When you reach the collapsed throne near the end of the level, climb up the steps either side of it then look behind the throne - you will see a megasphere that you can reach with a running jump. (sector 521)
