In this episode, aliens from the planet Vorticon VI find out about the eight year-old genius and plan his destruction. While Keen is out exploring the mountains of Mars, the Vorticons steal vital parts of his ship and take them to distant martian cities! Can Keen recover all the pieces of his ship and repel the Vorticon Invasion? Will he make it back before his parents get home? Stay Tuned!

What The Vorticons Have Stolen

The Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket was constructed from objects around the house that you have "Modified" into starship parts:

* JOYSTICK (From your brother's video game) - Manual Flight Control
* CAR BATTERY (From your Mum's car) - Electrical systems power
* VACUUM CLEANER (From the kitchen) - Ion Propulsion Unit (With carpet height adjustment)
* EVERCLEAR (From your Dad's liquor cabinet) - Fuel

The Vorticons have taken these pieces to the far reaches of Mars and are guarding them. You must find the members of this Vorticon outpost and wrest the parts back from their vicket, clawed hands!

Information On Mars

Unbeknownst to NASA when the Viking Lander settled to the surface of Mars, it caused a major political upheaval. Viking actually landed on the Despotic Martian King! The Yorps (the extremely friendly one-eyed martians) were free from enslavement, and the Gargs (the vicious, aggressive martians) were angry.

The martians created robots for menial work and guard duties. Beware of the Tank-Like guard robots, they are VERY good at what they do.

Martianss have been visiting earth in UFOs for decades. Why? They come to Earth for one reason, they WANT our TOYS. Hula Hoops and Skateboards are holy objects to them! Who knows... you may find some toys useful!

There are signs everywhere. You haven't been able to deciper them yet.....

The Adventure Begins...

Your task is before you. Go get 'em Commander Keen!
