Commander Keen 4
Billy has been working on a new invention in this episode. His latest invention
is the Photachyon Tranceiver, a radio that can reviece signals from anywhere in
the galaxy. After playing around with his new invention, he suddenly hears a
strange message: "brrzzz ... giggg ... oment of great triumph ... frzzt ... ast
the Milky Way will be ... huzzzzz ... terly destroyed ... pyuneeeeeeg ... can stop
us now. We will remake the galaxy in the name of the Gannalech. Power to our race!
power to the Shikadi!" After zapping his parents, Billy heads to The Oracle of
Gnosticus IV, who will help Billy with his mission, but after arriving on Gnosticus IV
he discovers that the Shikadi have already been there.
The Shikadi seems to have kidnapped all the members of the council, and taken them all
to the shadow lands in the west side of the planet. Sounds like a interesting mission
for commander keen.

But tables turn when he gets to know that the eight representatives of the council have been taken as a hostage by the Shikadi and have been captivated in the threatening Shadow lands. Therefore, Billy needs to rescue the representatives so that he can save the galaxy.

i love this game . play with my son on our first computer!!!
Commander Keen 4 is a game that i played as a child. we then upgraded to a new computer and lost commander keen 4. it has taken me 13 years to finally track this game back down. I am so pleased i have found it as it was so symbolising for me. I am disappointed that i cannot download this game to my computer even though i am unsure why i cannot but i am hugely excited to be playing this game again and i hope it is around to stay.
