Sharp Things is a single-level PWAD for Ultimate Doom that was designed by Xaser Acheron in 2013 and last updated in 2017. It uses the music track "Faces of the Wind" by Lexus Alyus. The par time defined in the DEHACKED lump is 5:00 (but see Bugs).

Other points of interest[edit]


  1. Enter the door to the east of the spider mastermind, then up the steps and onto the skull floor. Head south and jump into the pool, teleporting back. Head straight south from the teleporter and then east, jumping across the gap. On the other side, climb the set of steps, ignore the door up ahead, and climb another small set of steps. Note that there is a large crusher in the center of this room going up and down. From the end of the ledge, make a jump to the west while the crusher is rising to reach the next ledge. At the northwest corner, open the wall with the symbol on it to reach a rock ledge with an energy cell pack and an invulnerability. (sector 29)
  2. From the same ledge mentioned above, look south, and make a jump when the crusher rises to reach the platform that had imps. There are health and armor bonuses on this platform. You can make another jump to the platform to the east, which has the same thing. Both platforms count as one secret. (sector 486)


The par time in the DEHACKED lump is malformed in Doom II syntax, so it is not actually used on the intermission screen.
