Game description

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!
