Episode 1, Floor 3 is the third level of Wolfenstein 3D episode "Escape from Wolfenstein".


The level begins in a symmetrical set of gray stone hallways that exit to:

  • 3 rooms
  • 4 secrets[secrets 1, 2, 3, 4]
  • A large prison area in the northeast of the level, featuring a room with a gold Key and another with a Secret[secret 5]
  • two exits to a second, L-shaped hallway with a secret at the end[secret 6].

This last hallway opens on the west to a series of stone rooms manned by Guards and Patrolled by Dogs, eventually ending in a cache of Treasure (and featuring two Secrets[secrets 7, 8]). On the east, one finds more gray brick rooms which, with the gold Key found in the prison area above, ends in the Elevator room.


  1. An eagle-adorned gray brick wall opens to a cache of Ammo from the first set of hallways
  2. A plain gray brick wall near the above secret opens to a very similar cache of Ammo
  3. A plain gray brick wall opens to Ammo and Chests
  4. A plain gray brick wall in the above opens to a Chain Gun and two First Aid kits
  5. A flag-adorned gray brick wall at the end of a long hallway opens to two First Aid kits
  6. An apparent dead-end in the maze of gray brick rooms opens instead to a room of Ammo
    1. A plain wall in the above Secret opens to a Chain Gun, and First Aid
      1. A plain wall in the above Secret opens to a massive steel hallway, ending in Treasure
  7. A pile of bones in the prison area marks a pushwall to a cache of health, Treasure, and Ammo.
  8. A wall adorned with an eagle marks the entrance to a Treasure cache


  • In the maze of similarly-sized gray brick rooms in the west-southwest of the level, one may find a region that is filled in with a different gray brick wall than the rest of the level. It is sized and shaped similarly to the rooms surrounding it, and placed appropriately. This is most likely a remnant from development, a room negated and filled in.
  • A wall tile in a secret[secret 7] is missing, allowing the player to step into the absolute southern margin of the level.
  • John Romero's record time for beating this level is 28 seconds.[1]
