Other points of interest[edit]


  1. On the stairs that go up the blue door, from the top, jump while hugging the right wall. You'll fall onto a very thin ledge, and you can investigate the south corner to find a supercharge. (sector 352)
  2. Up behind bars where the spider mastermind is. You need to arch-vile jump on the small grass platform with a health bonus. Get the red key and another supercharge. (sector 283)
  3. Open the red key door opposite of the exit switch to find the secret exit. (sector 160)
