This is a console version
of a PC level.

This level occupies the map slot MAP24. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP24.
This level occupies the map slot MAP56. For other maps which occupy this slot, see Category:MAP56.

MAP24: Military Base is the first secret level of most console versions of Doom, based on the original E1M9: Military Base with modifications made to accommodate consoles' limitations. The author of the conversion is unknown and the original author of the map is John Romero. The map first appeared in the Atari Jaguar version, and is additionally used in the 3DO, Sega 32X, Game Boy Advance, Sony PlayStation, and Sega Saturn versions.

In the PlayStation and Saturn ports, this map occupies the MAP56 slot, but it is otherwise identical to the version which occurs as MAP24 in other ports. In all versions of the game, it is reached by finding the secret exit in MAP03: Toxin Refinery. Finishing this level will take the player to MAP04: Command Control.

Other points of interest[edit]



In the Game Boy Advance version of the game, the player will not be offered a chance to save the game when entering this level and so it must be finished in the same play session as MAP03. This is most likely a programming oversight related to the fact that it is the only level in that version of the game reached through a secret exit.
