Open the door in the skull rock, you will be rewarded with a mega armor.


  1. North of the area with the red key, you will find a satyr switch. Pressing it will temporarily open a small room on the opposite ledge of the area with a plasma gun inside. (sector 256)
  2. In the southern part of the red key area, you will notice the catwalk with a soulsphere and two boxes of rockets. (sector 252) While looking at the secret (south), turn around and you will notice a teleporter that will lead you there. You can press on the window to lower the wall that blocks access to the teleporter.
  3. On your way to the yellow key, after opening the door behind the tiny bridge, on your left (north) you will notice a wall blocking your way to the partial invisibility. (sector 309) It is possible to run from the door frame across the wall to get an item.
