MAP30: Thanatophobia is the thirtieth and final map of Claustrophobia 1024. It was designed by Joonas Äijälä (Jodwin), and uses a MIDI rendition of the music track "Sheep Will Sleep (If You Become Fatigued)" from Guilty Gear Isuka, sequenced by solis.


Map of Thanatophobia
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.


You begin in a circular chamber with several lost souls. Step forward to collect a backpack, megaarmor and super shotgun, then dispatch the souls while you wait for the floor to lower and drop you into a library - there are imps all around you, and mancubi standing on platforms in the corners. North of the playable area is a marble structure with a monster spawner (or two on Ultra-Violence and Nightmare skill levels), which will activate as soon as you land. Romero's head moves along this structure on a conveyor belt that travels from west to east.

Inside the library are eight switches, four in the south corners and four at the top of the steps in the north corners - you must press all eight switches while dodging the monsters that spawn on the yellow cracks in the floor. Pressing all eight switches will open the column at the north end of the room and reveal a lift, which is activated by pressing the red button at the south end of the room; as the lift rises, you will have a moment to shoot Romero's head through a hole in the wall as the lift passes it. The level ends when the head is killed.

Other points of interest[edit]

An invulnerability is placed by the south wall, while a megasphere, rocket launcher, plasma gun and BFG9000 are placed near the lift.


There are no official secrets on this map.
