Other points of interest[edit]


  1. At the east end of the city, head north from the garden entrance and into the alley at the west side. A door will open. Quickly run through the south alley, then east and into the building to the north with a shotgun guy, a zombieman, a backpack, a rocket, and a medikit. (sector 161)
  2. At the grass area at the east end of the map, get on the high ledge and head north, then jump northeast to the wall, being careful not to fall in the water on the other side. On the wall, jump north across the wall and head west for a megasphere. You can leave by pressing the green wall you hopped over. (sector 805)
  3. Grab the red key and the wall south from the cage will open revealing imps. The area they came from counts as a secret. (sector 270)
