You have set the bomb and got two minutes to escape or you will die.
As soon as you move a wall will open revealing a demon, every weapon and a way out. Run up the stairs, dodging bad guys that teleport in, until you reach a room with two large metal cylinders and a blocked passage way. As you enter this room both the cylinders and the blockage will begin to lower, revealing a pair of cyberdemons.
Hold out against them and any other bad guys that enter the room from the way you came in until the blockage has lowered revealing an arch-vile. Behind him down the end of the corridor is the exit.
Contrary to what the computer voice might suggest, you have actually got two minutes to escape from when you first move, rather than two minutes from the start of the map.
Other points of interest
There are no official secrets on this map.
It is possible that one or both cyberdemons will get stuck by walking onto the lowering parts of their platform, as they lower. This renders them harmless.
One can hug the south edge of the bomb console to get around, and hence avoid activating, the trigger that activates the crusher that controls the "countdown". However the only way someone would realize this is possible is by examining the map in an editor.
