Secret level 3-10 is a replica of the maze from the arcade game Pac-Man, complete with ghosts which chase the player. The ghosts cannot be killed, and rapidly drain health from the player when touched (on easier difficulty settings, they don't do any damage). The dots are replaced with treasure items and the power pills are replaced with extra lives. To exit the level, the player must find and enter one of the two side tunnels, both of which lead to standard exit rooms. The red Pac-Man ghosts can also be found in secret level 6-10.

In another id Software game, Doom II: Hell on Earth, there are two secret levels that are based on 1-1 and 1-9 of Wolfenstein 3D. The blue SS soldiers appear, demons take the place of the guard dogs and the Cyberdemon takes the place of Hans Grosse.

Due to its use of Nazi symbols such as the Swastika and the anthem of the Nazi Party, Horst-Wessel-Lied, as theme music, the PC version of the game was confiscated in Germany in 1994, following a verdict by the Amtsgericht M√ľnchen on January 25, 1994 (Az. 2 Gs 167/94).
