Tile Tester 3 is the first test level from Catacomb Abyss (1992), residing unmarked in slot 19. It has no official name, but the MAPSABS.H file in the source code refers to it as 'TILE_TESTER_3_MAP'. It appears to be a level designed by the developers for testing the texturing, featuring a tile of each. Tile Tester 3 is the only playable test level in the orginal DOS game executable. It can be accessed via the level warp cheat. There are three additional test levels present in the game data, which do not work in the original game.

Trivia[edit]

You have arrived at...
  • Even the level warp cheat does not acknowledge this level, listing only levels 0 to 18. Warping to it displays "You have arrived at ". This is because there are only 19 entries in the array of levelnames in the source code file C4_GAME.C.
  • At least for the moderator, this level does not appear to launch in Reflection Keen.
