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, open the door to the left within view, then flip the switch ahead to open the door to the right. Go through it, then open the door to the left and follow the corridor to the left. Open the door on the right at the end, go down the stairs in front and make a hairpin turn to the left to find a switch ahead. Press it and climb the stairs back up, then enter the blood pool to the left and step beneath the blinking light to be teleported to the yellow key pillar. Return to the starting room and open the yellow door, then collect the red key to the left. Go back to the yellow key area and open the door to the south. Climb up the stairs, make a hairpin turn to the right and use the switch. Turn around and enter the teleporter between two torches to arrive at the final area, then approach the wall in front of you to make it start lowering. Fend off the monsters that spawn in as you wait, then take the teleporter behind the wall to trigger the exit.
