Inspiration and development[edit]

Adolf Vojta's comments on this level[1]:

One of my older maps I really like the outlay. I used to plan this map it for doom1, but this doom2 result seems quite better that I expected. Once again thanks Method he gave me the Wadauthor :)

Letters in italics refer to marked spots on the map. Sector, thing, and linedef numbers in boldface are secrets which count toward the end-of-level tally.


Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The starting sector is tagged as a secret. (sector 1)
  2. Far west of the blue key, you will notice a hall in the wall with crates inside. Press on the brown crate there to lower it, then press a part of the eastern wall behind it. The revealed passage will lead you to a soulsphere sitting on a pedestal. (sector 437)
  3. From the area with a plasma gun near the blue key, use the northern bridge while going west, and as you go down the stairs, try landing on a catwalk on your right (north). Go along with it, and a teleporter to your right (east) will appear. When you use it, you will end up on the nearby ledge above the area, with medikits and boxes of rockets. (sector 705)


The third secret teleporter might not work.
