This level name is unconfirmed. If you know of the correct name, please discuss it on the talk page before renaming it.

The First Ice Shrine is level number 10 in Keen 1. Half of the level is a regular shrine, protected by a yellow door, but with no Martians inside. Before the shrine, however, there is an ice building with several Martians protecting the yellow key.

There is a message in this level which is displayed when the player touches the statue of a Yorp. The message is:

You see these words in your head:

You will need a Raygun in the end, but not to shoot the Vorticon...

In this and other ice levels, such as the Ice City, the Second Ice Shrine and the Vorticon Commander's Castle, there are two kinds of slippery surfaces: white blocks, which are slippery when walked upon but can Keen can still be controlled; and ice blocks, where Keen loses control unless he jumps off the block.
