Banished Keep is Metabus's first custom track. It takes place in an old keep overflown by lava. The author tried to create a fun track with lots of shortcuts that is easy to learn but hard to master. He created this track to familiarize himself with 3D modeling tools and the various software for custom track creation.

Slot Information

It is recommended to put this track on slot 8.4 because of the lava sound effects.
