Excellent game, and I'm glad you've put it here.

I have a bit of a request to whoever it is who uploaded this game to here. You see, this is the earliest version of the game that was released, and by extension, has a variety of glitches. This version has an instance in a stage where a key is suspended in air above a pool of water which you can't make without exploiting cheats. If at all possible, I'd like to ask you to reupload this game's later version (Version 1.32, I believe) so that people don't get stuck on various parts that weren't ironed out in this version (Further incentive: This version of the game has been cited for preventing the player from reaching a schoolhouse in a certain level that has the Standard Galactic Alphabet written on it for people to find). PLEASE READ THIS!

Thank you very much for hosting this. I have many happy memories playing this as a little tyke on computers that would now be *politely* called 'legacy hardware'. Am setting up the Keen series for my younger brothers with Dosbox, and I think they'll really get a kick out of it.

It is a shame that the 2nd series ended unfinished with Keen 6..perhaps someday a dedicated fan can fill the gap. (I'd love to, but I can't program worth beans) I'll always have a special place in my heart for the pint-sized hero who kicked alien tail all over the galaxy with a little green stunner, a pogo stick and a jerry-built spaceship.
