Other points of interest[edit]


  1. The blue key is reached by jumping out of a window in the south-west of the start room. Symmetrically opposite this window (in the start room) is a secret lift, leading down to a backpack. (sector 161)
  2. On the outside of the blue key building (to the west) is a switch. This briefly reveals a door to the south, leading to a switch which raises the nearby invisible platform (which has a soul sphere at the top). The platform can then be lowered as a lift. Upon reaching the top, jump to the south onto the ledge, where you will find a plasma rifle. There is a box of rockets and an energy cell pack at the other end of the ledge (near the blue key building). (sector 113)
  3. To the north-east of the start is a room with three bookcases. Pressing the western side of the northernmost one opens up a room to the east with some monsters, a megaarmor, and a berserk. This can be entered by lowering either of the other bookcases (press the sides with the pictures) and jumping across. Entering this room raises the floor in the area to the north (containing an arachnotron on medium and hard skills as well as four boxes of rockets and an invulnerability) which can be reached by walking across the raised triangular section of floor in the corner. (sector 239)
  4. The room just north of the exit with a computer area map counts as a secret and is impossible to miss. (sector 8)
