The exit is right next to your start, but you need the blue key to open the bars. Go through the door, through the gate into the castle. Go into the room with the super shotgun and you have two options at this point. Take the western path first, and go until you reach a fork where you should take the stairs. Cross the bridge and flip the switch here. Go back to the room with the super shotgun, and you will find that one set of bars has opened barring access to the south door. You still need to open the other set, so take the east door into a library. Cross through the area with the red floor, and make a U-turn left. You should see a hall with a tall techno floor lamp. Go through this hall taking the steps up and crossing another bridge. You will find another switch which lowers the second set of bars back in the main room.

Now you can access the south door. There is another fork behind the door. Turn left into the hallways with blue floors on them, and find the switch here that lowers the platform with the yellow key on it. Go back to the fork and go west this time to the dining hall, where you can use the yellow key on the door behind the table. Open the door and go north all the way outside to the castle walls. Take the teleporter at the end to go to the other side, then drop into the moat. A baron of Hell guards the red key here. Take it and head up the stairs for the wall to lower. You will be back at the library. Open the nearby red door and kill the mancubus. Press the switch to reveal an arch-vile and the blue key. If you jump outside, you will reveal several imps, a cyberdemon, and another arch-vile. Go back to the beginning to exit, unless you want to go secret hunting. If you manage to find and kill all the Commander Keens in the map, go back to the fork towards the south and a new way is revealed. Explore this area at your discretion.
