Other points of interest[edit]


  1. In the blue key area, raise the platforms on the west side and quickly run into the west side of the room. Use the wall at the south end to find a torch, lots of cannonballs, and a soul sphere. (sector 613)
  2. In the main hall of the castle, use the recessed wall in the southeast corner to find a secret courtyard with a backpack, a dynamite launcher, lots of dynamite, and rum. (sector 1723)
  3. To the right of the starting point, you will see rum on the wall. To get it, head east at the intersection and follow the path to a room. Head to the dual flintlocks and press on the wall to get the rum. (linedef 1687 via script 10 and "secret trigger" thing 85)
