Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Once you have the yellow key, return to the northwest part of the map and open the yellow door. Flip the next switch and ride the lift up. The door takes you back to the diamond-shaped room, where you will find new enemies to fight. Another switch to the east opens up a switch to the north, which will unlock the way to the red key, but also the door to the south. Take the path to the south until you see the paler wall to the west. Go through it to find a soul sphere, a box of rockets, and an energy cell pack. (sector 58)
  2. When you teleport at the start, head up and left, and the platform will lower. You will also notice a lift across from the platform has also lowered with it. To get this secret, go towards the gargoyle switch you see and stand halfway between the platform and the floor below it. The lift above you will rise up, but not the platform since you are in the way. When that happens, wait a second and then hit the gargoyle switch, then ride the platform up and quickly enter the lift before it too rises. If you do it right, you will be able to get a berserk pack. (sector 62)
  3. When you teleport at the start, head up and left, and the platform will lower. When it does, look to the north and you can vaguely spot a red button beyond the blinking lights. Shooting it removes a bar to the right containing a megaarmor. You will reach this area eventually and be able to grab the megaarmor by then. (sector 1563)
