In the final episode of the Keen series, Commander Keen must rescue his babysitter from aliens using nothing but a gun and a pogo stick. As in Goodbye Galaxy, you start with the pogo stick, which is really helpful. Excellent level design and imaginative enemies make this a fitting finale to a beloved series that is known for simple graphics and gameplay, but excellent replayability and fun factor. A "Special Demo Version" was distributed in North America by FormGen, and a "Promotional Release Version" was distributed in the UK distributor by Precision Software Applications. There are 17 levels in this game, with only the first few playable in the shareware version.
