Map of Doom Gardens
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.


At the start, go forward and make a hairpin turn to the left, then continue forward. As you approach the yellow key on a pillar turn left twice to find a switch. Flip it to lower the yellow key and return to the start. There's a yellow door to the left in front of the start, so open it and press the switch inside. Exit this room and the outdoor area to your left is now accessible. You should see an arrow on the ground pointing left, follow it to find a switch. Use it and the wall to your left will lower, revealing the starting area. Go to the entrance of the outdoor area to find another arrow, this time pointing to the right. Follow that direction until you reach a room with a lift that lowers as you cross the entrance. Ride it to the top then go left, up the stairs then go left, cross the bridge then go left again to find another switch. Flip it then drop down to your left and go through the bars to your right to reach the exit portal.


  1. The sector immediately preceding the exit is marked as secret and thus is impossible to miss. (sector 571)
