Description (by Eric Savage)

Apogee Software hit the big time with this platformer, carving out a popular title that was to stand tall in the market for years. Your name is Billy and you have a gun... and a cool cycling helmet and pogo stick so you can jump all over the screen, shooting bad guys and picking up bonus objects. There are many levels to play in this shareware title, so you will be entertained for hours as you try to find your way through the labyrinth and live up to the challenge of Commander Keen!

Cheats (by VGTips.com)

God mode: Press the following keys at the same time: G-O-D. Pressing all three of these will put you in God mode, and will also give you a jump cheat, meaning that when you press the "jump" key, you can fly.

Full items: Press the following keys at the same time: C-T-[Space]. Gives you the pogostick, all the keycards, and full ammo.

Pass through levels: Hold the following keys: [Shift]-[Tab]. Allows you to walk through locations on the map without beating them.
