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


At the start, face left and drop down. Go up the stairs in front and jump across the gap. Climb up the stairs and face right to spot a megasphere. Jump to its platform to lower the wall in front, then make your way to it. Climb up both sets of stairs to arrive at a room with a big crate. Head to the left, past the crate and a wall will lower to your left. Go through it and drop down to the floor below. Head to either of the openings in front on the right side and flip the switch. Turn around and make your way to the opening on the left to raise stairs in front. Climb both sets of stairs, go to the right and press the switch on the left. Turn around, face right and continue straight ahead to drop down to the ground. Turn right and use the switch inside the alcove. Exit the alcove, make a hairpin turn to the right and go forward to spot platforms leading to an upper ledge. Hop on the platforms to reach the ledge and flip the switch in front to reveal the exit portal behind it.


  1. Go into the damaging slime at the eastern part of the map where the switch is. Look for a candle to the north, where you can open a passage for a teleporter. You will find a megasphere, a radiation suit, and energy cell packs on the top of this hill. (sector 262)
