To escape the maze in PC/Mac Final Doom Plutonia level 11,
Note that most closed doors in this maze will only open
when a player crosses a nearby invisible floor trigger (or
"tripwire"). The location of each invisible tripwire is
indicated by a pair of thin, vertical metal strips which
are mounted across from each other on opposing walls. When
a player passes between a pair of these vertical strips,
the tripwire there is activated, and a nearby door will
open up for a few seconds, then close again.
If at any time you attempt to get through a door but it
closes too soon, reverse your steps until you cross the
correct tripwire, then run to the door again.
The player first appears on this level in a large room in
