The Keen 1 BwB Level (sometimes erroneously known as Flaose's First Levels) is a custom level for Keen 1 released by Flaose in 1999-01-20. It recreates the possibility of entering the Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket as a level like in Keen 4 and Keen 6. Keen can pick up a Raygun here but nothing else is to be found. The level cannot be entered multiple times like its Galaxy counterparts.

The world map is modified so that Keen can enter the Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket without getting the "Your ship is missing these parts:" message, which is what trying to access the Fourth Red Rock Shrine will now bring up. This is because the former level is assigned as level 11, while the latter is assigned as 20, which was the Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket's default number. All of the blue shrines, besides the Fourth Red Rock Shrine, are replaced by gray ones, probably to signify that the aforementioned level is now inaccessible.
