What Keen Must Do

As Commander Keen, you must make your way through all the perils or Vorticon VI and discover the secret of the Grand Intellect. The Vorticon Elder aboard the Mothership told you two things. One, the Vorticons are not evil -- The Grand Intellect is controlling them with "Mind-belts." And two, the Grand Intellect is from Earth. Who could he be?

Information On Vorticon Culture

Vorticon life is much like our own, except for the following: Blue Skin, Long Ears, Fangs, Anti-Gravity Cars, Teleportation Devices, and so on.
Some other inhabitants include the easily-frightened Foobs and the race of Jovial Incredibly Bad Singers, the Meeps. One Dangerous aspect of Vorticon Life is the nature of their children's toys. They like to play a form of "Jacks" where the ball is the size of their body and the Jacks are deadly! Watch Out!
There is also a rumour of the giant beast of Loch Mess, known affectionately as "Messie". The land-based defenses of Vorticon VI consist of the VortiNinjas, the deadliest fighting force in the galaxy. They have been trained by the Grand Intellect to take no prisoners.
