Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Solve the puzzle in the southwest room, then look at the south wall and shoot the left of two faces on the wall. This opens up the southeast corner which has a skull staff charge. (sector 316)
  2. Head east from the hub and in this room, read the book and the crypts will open. Enter the northeast crypt and use the hieroglyphs in the back. This opens the gate to the northwest, with treasure, large bags of money, flasks of dragon oil, and a mask of invulnerability. (sector 409)
  3. In the room with the bridge and switches, head to the east side on ground floor and open a wall to find a ring mail, green mana, blue mana, vases with flasks of dragon oil, and quartz flask. (sector 561)
  4. When you fail the northwest puzzle, you will teleport to a small maze area. Press all the switches here, then head to the west section to find crystal vials, quartz flasks, flasks of dragon oil, and bags with money. (sector 855)


Two Egyptian statues (Things 1449 and 1450) have no flags set for any of the three difficulty classes, so they do not actually appear in the level.
