Map of Tower in the Fountain of Sparks III
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.


Flip the switch in front of you to lower the yellow bars, then follow the path until you emerge by the large tower you visited earlier in the game. Follow the trail of health bonuses to a red switch inside the tower and pull it to open a flame wall teleporter on your left then step through that wall, go up the steps ahead and turn right to see a tunnel leading to another switch. Flip the switch to lower the green bars, go through and head east into another tunnel; the path will lead you across several bridges to a metal building. Go inside and turn right to find a lift, ride it down to the bottom floor and head east until you see a pile of corpses. You will see an "EXIT" sign on the wall ahead - go up the steps next to it to reach a teleporter that will send you into a death exit.
