A Hedge Maze

"Find your way through hedge maze (no, I'm not going to help you), taking note of the location of the Skull and Moon key doors, until you find the brick structure. Walk past it, and you'll soon find another brick structure. Open the door and kill the fat zombie to get the Skull key. Find your way back to the Skull key door, and open it. You'll find an area with a swimming pool over to your right. When you enter that area, turn right, and go through the door. To your right you'll see a not-so-hot tub. Find the button on the side of it, and push it. Jump in the hot tub and collect the Moon key. Opposite the way you came in, you'll find a Moon key door. Go through it and you'll find yourself outside the building where you got the Skull key. Follow the hedge maze back to your starting point, and go through that Moon Key door. Turn to your right, walk all the way down, and push the symbol to end the level."Baytor's Guide
