Map of the Second Dome of Darkness

The Second Dome of Darkness is one of the three dome levels found in Keen 6 (with the others being the First Dome of Darkness and the Bloogdome). The background and and floors are the same as others found in most underground settings across Fribbulus Xax. What purpose it and the other Dome of Darkness serve are unknown; given the structure of the Second Dome of Darkness, it may be a kind of unorthodox Bloog city.

It is possible to climb the black lining of the dome, which can be used to access a well-hidden secret elevator shaft on the right side of the level; if Keen can jump off the side of the dome and find the hidden shaft, it is possible to take a lift up to a tunnel that runs along the top of the level. It is guarded by a series of electrode beams and has a large cache of ammo at the end with points along the way.

There is another secret compartment that should be accessed from before the secret shaft. In here, two extra lives are waiting.

Miscellaneous info

  • In here, 15,900 points may be collected: 39 Bloog Sodas, 10 Ice Cream Bars, 2 Root Beer Floats and 4 Puddings (3,900 + 2,000 + 2,000 + 8,000 = 15,900). The Puddings and the Pizza Slices are missing. There are a total of 39 Vivas, and 3 Queen Vivas all-in-all.
