<CT> + [SPACE] = Gives Keen a pogostick, all of the keycards and lots of ray gun charges.
While at the map level, pressing <SHIFT/TAB> will allow you to bypass a city.
<GOD> = Enters GOD mode. While in GOD mode creatures cannot kill keen. Also if you have the pogostick and are currently bouncing on it you can hold down Ctrl to fly through the air.
NOTE: Fire, spikes and open holes will still kill Keen.
Go to the Pyramid of the Crescent Moon, stand on one of the two crescent moons on the floor, and Keen will "moon" you. You can only do this once.
<Ctrl-cursor> Makes you climb poles and swim faster.
<END> Saves all the Gnosticenes and goes to the end story.
<BAT> Gives you 99 shots and 1up.
First 'village', under houses in tunnel by lava pool, there's a hidden gap you can reveal with the <F10/Y> cheat, and jump through with the <F10/J> cheat, which leads to 9 extra lives.
How to get to The Pyramid of the Forbidden: In the Pyramid of the Crescent Moon, go to bottom, gather all the inch worms at your feet. when all the inch worms are gathered they will form a foot, jump on the foot and it will fly you to the Pyramid of the Forbidden.
You can not get to the raindrops and lifewater flasks floating over the underground river in Lifewater Oasis (it's just a tease.)
Top left hand corner of the first level - look for the hidden tunnel with <F10/Y> and reach it with <F10/J> jump cheat. Its hidden just on the left hand edge of the level, past a laser bolt gun. I've never managed to reach it without God Mode and Jump Cheat. It leads to the right hand side of the screen, where there's 9 extra lives. Once you take the tunnel, you can't get back to the main screen, you have to exit from the extra lives area.
How to get to The Secret Korath III Base: Play the Defense Tunnel Teln until just before the exit door, stand behind the arch, push and hold the down control and press the jump key. Move down the tunnel until you reach a secret room and then go up to the transporter.
There's a fuse at the top of The Secret Korath III Base. Break it, then warp to the final level and complete the game. Compare the ending with the version you get if you don't break this hidden fuse.
Try decoding the strange strange signs - a few of them are funny or helpful. At one point you find the whole alphabet written out in these 'runes'. Try decoding the piece of paper you get at the end of the game.
The sign by the cookbook says "How to serve Humans". This is a reference to a Science Fiction story.
The hidden level in this one is past the final level in the top left hand corner of the main screen. Get the ticket, then stand there. A rocket picks you up and takes you to the extra level.
In one level, the pipework in the walls spells out "Romero", one of the guys who worked on the games.
Go to the Bean with Bacon Megarocket screen. Up on the right hand side there is a hidden chute that will take you to a secret level underground. You will have to use the pogo stick to jump high enough to grab the edge of the chute though.
<Ctrl-Alt/Q> = Exits to DOS.
NOTE: Does not work for Keen Dreams.
<F9> = BOSS mode. This can be done anytime, I don't know if it was documented or not. Makes it look like your in DOS if your BOSS walks in.
NOTE: <A/2> + [ENTER] = Debugging keys. Need to use this one first in Keen 4 and Keen 5 or the others below don't work.
Keen 4 Warping Levels
Keen 5 Warping Levels
Keen 6 Warping Levels
Keen Dreams Warping Levels
*Levels 6, 8, 11, and 13 all go to a small level full of goodies. I don't know if they planned more levels then they used, or if the registered version uses these levels.
There is also a practice mode available that will give you infinite lives to practice a certain level. The only problem whith this is that if you use the control panel, you can only play paddle war or return to the game or the system locks up. Also, if you leave the level in any way (finish it, etc) the system will lock up.
