Map of the Chasm of Chills

The Chasm of Chills is a level in Keen 4. It is located in the northern, mountainous region of the Shadowlands of Gnosticus IV.

As the name implies, the level consists of a huge chasm, with several tunnels below, and a higher area with grass and clouds above. Most of the level areas are optional, as jumping on the floating platforms until Keen reaches the right side of the level gets him to the exit.

The level is populated by Poison Slugs, Licks, Mimrocks, Mad Mushrooms and Thunderclouds. This is one of the two levels (the other being Crystalus) where Blue Birds can be found.

Princess Lindsey can be found in this level, with a helpful hint:

The way to the Pyramid of the Forbidden lies under the Pyramid of Moons.

Miscellaneous info

  • There are a total of 57,100 points in the Chasm. That includes 106 Shikadi Sodas, 7 Shikkers Candy Bars, 2 Jawbreakers, 3 Doughnuts and 7 Ice Cream Cones (10,600 + 3,500 + 2,000 + 6,000 + 35,000 = 57,100). The Chasm, interesting enough, doesn't have any Three-Tooth Gums. The total number of drops is 116, meaning that they're worth more than an extra life. There's a single Lifewater Flask in a secret alcove in the secret area below the exit.
  • In the same secret area, there's a secret passage that is offscreen, meaning that Keen cannot be seen when he enters this passage, but he's still "intact", he doesn't touch the edge of the map. The last 16 Raindrops are in this area, along with a Shikadi Soda, and a Lick. See a similar example in Lifewater Oasis.
