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

Moscow Tantalus Center is one of the Tantalus Ray levels found in Keen 2. As the name implies, it is aimed at the city of Moscow, in Russia. The image on the screen is Saint Basil's Cathedral in the Red Square, which is probably the exact point of impact. This level is incorrectly labeled as "Rome" in the map, mixing it with Rome Tantalus Center (see Keen 2 Bugs for more info).

This Tantalus Ray has only one Vorticon Elite protecting it. However, to get to the Control Room, Keen must obtain two keycards (the yellow and red ones), and both keys are protected by a total of five Vorticon Elite. Though the level is not really big, the layout is a little confusing, and Keen has to wind his way through some dangerous optional rooms, getting the keycards, and fighting some Grunts and Youths to get to the Tantalus Ray.

This is one of the few levels in the series to feature two different exits. Unlike other levels, in this case both exits can be reached. In fact, the second one is just below the first one, and lets Keen collect a few more points before leaving the level.
