Other points of interest[edit]


  1. As you start the map, run north until you reach the long lava moat with the skull key doors. Turn right, then go through the passage marked by the blocks in the lava. Approach the alcove with the red torches to lower the wall in front of you (sector 212), revealing a megasphere.
  2. Beyond the yellow key door, head up the western steps. At the end is a lift, and to the right of it the wall with rune-like markings can also be lowered like a lift. Ride it up to a niche high up in the wall with two energy cell packs; when you jump off it to the rampart below, the merlon with a supercharge (sector 145) will lower for you to collect.
  3. In the hollow tower at the southwest of the map, you can jump over the windowsill from the second-to-last stairstep to reach a rocky ledge (sector 552) with a medikit and six energy cell packs.

Inspiration and development[edit]


Likely an error, the map is referred to as "The Spirit World" with regular font on the pre- and post-level intermission screens for the official add-on. Other levels do not exhibit this behavior.
