Murky Marsh is the third level of Atroxian Realm, a Keen 4 mod by Gridlock.

After making his way through the Dark Swamp, Keen comes across a river of acidic water that runs through the Southwestern swampland of Planet Krisle. The only way to cross the river is by going through the Murky Marsh, a swampy labyrinth full of peril and danger. To get through, Keen will have to find his way across pools of acid water, brave the local wildlife (including the Larvbat and Dartfrog), and explore deep into the vast underground cave system of this wild and untamed place. A spider-like robot called Atroxite can be found deep in the caves, the first sign of a robot invasion that is taking place on Krisle. Many dead-ends, dangers, hidden passages and secrets await in Murky Marsh, Keen will need to keep his wits about him to survive!

If Commander Keen manages to get through the Murky Marsh, he will then have two options. He can either take on Brithom Bog, or brave the Larvae Lagoon.

Murky Marsh is the first level in which a Checkpoint can be found, a very handy tool that will aide Keen on his dangerous quest to save Planet Krisle!


There are a total of 152,000 points here distributed as 65 Lemon Drops, 24 Quadpops, 11 French Fries, 12 Kabobs, 7 Sphere Mints, 8 Choc-Lover's Cones, 20 Rainbow Snowcones (6,500 + 4,800 + 5,500 + 12,000 + 7,000 + 16,000 + 100,000 = 152,000). The number of Sparks is 121 and there are two Spark Stars and one 3-UP Hyper Star hidden in secret areas.
