Metropolis is the ninth level of Serious Sam: The First Encounter and Serious Sam HD: The First Encounter.


Sam, now in the metropolitan area of Memphis, must make his way to the Temple of Ptah, where an ancient Sirian artifact is located, and hopefully, it will aid Sam in his mission.


  1. After exiting the village area with the four scarabs, move onto the big corridor followed by the spike pit, just when you enter the big corridor turn right, you'll see a differently colored part on the wall. Blow it up with a rocket to reveal a secret ammo depot containing a cannon and some cannonballs.


  • The Lava Golem boss spawns in the end of this level instead of in the end of the Alley of the Sphinxes in Serious Sam Xbox.
  • In the classic version, Metropolis has bluish lighting and the sky is more clouded when playing on serious difficulty.
  • In the HD version, in co-op, Metropolis has cloudy dark weather and it's raining when playing on Serious difficulty.
