dickie08.WAD, issue 1
This wad is 259kb when unzipped. Usually, I don't like secrets in doom maps because they bore me. However, in the spirit of 'Tricks & Traps', which was the original map08, I thought I would include a few puzzles in this one. Note - you must solve the secrets to finish the map. I have put clues in but have no idea how easy / hard they are??? If, like me, you just can't be bothered, then see the bottom of this text file for how to get the keys. There are also a couple of cruel tricks in this map - so save often!

MAP08 - SECRETS --------------- RED KEY The red key is on a platform which can be viewed from the 'control room' window at the start. Access to this platform is via a secret teleporter. To find the teleporter, go to the bridge with the red key switch on either side. To get to these switches, you must jump off a short ramp on either side. Go to the ramp on the other side. Jumping off this ramp will lower a platform to reveal the teleporter. But where is it???? Well, behind you actually. YELLOW KEY Once you are over the red key bridge you come to a large pit with four platforms. In the room at the bottom of the pit is a teleporter which takes you to a yellow key switch - press it. You can now jump onto a ledge in the pit with a switch. Pressing this switch lowers a platform to another secret teleporter. But where is it? Quickly jump into the teleporter at the bottom of the pit to find out. Note, you cannot access the yellow key directly - this is instant death (well it is tricks & traps!). BLUE KEY The blue key is on a tall, silver platform. To get the key, lower the platform with a secret switch. This switch can be found in the adjacent nukage pit. Here, there is a small platform. Lowering this platform in the usual way will reveal the switch - its behind you!!
