Here's a Special Demo Version of Commander Keen 4 that's not on your site. It has fewer levels than the normal Commander Keen 4 version.
I think it's comparable to Monster Bash Lite and the normal Monster Bash shareware version.

There are more versions of Keen 4 than there are on your site. You can download them from this topic at the Public Commander Keen Forum. The differences between versions is documented in the KeenWiki.

Hi Frenkel.

I don't know how I overlooked your original post. I've been aware of the other versions of Commander Keen for some time, but I didn't put them on the site because they are not listed in the "official" Apogee FAQ, so I had some concerns about their authenticity. I've only recently learned about the differences between versions, thanks to the KeenWiki, which demonstrates that they are not merely copies that have had the version number hex-edited. The FAQ said that Major Stryker 1.3 was never released until I show them about 5 shareware compilation CDs that had copies, so I guess this is another instance of Apogee forgetting its own past.

Adding those other versions to the site was one of my big plans for today because it's a long weekend and I've been catching up on stuff the site needs. If you had posted a few hours later, it would have already been done!
Today entirely the maniac there is no excuse with the article.

A technical improvent over the original trilogy, adds music, digitized sound effects and improved graphics. There's fewer levels though and although there's some fun to be had with this game, the gameplay itself is basically more of the same.
