  1. When you reach the exit, you will wonder what is "over there". What you need to do to reach this secret is make numerous rocket jumps across several platforms until you get to the one with several columns. The megaspheres provided will help. Once you reach the platform with the columns, they will all lower revealing several of Romero's Head, which you need to shoot to end the level. (sector 473)
