Commander Keen 2: The Earth Explodes review

PC Review - Issue 8 (1992): "This is the second Commander Keen trilogy and is sub-titled "Goodbye Galaxy" and it compares very favourably with most commercial games. Although Commander Keen I was fun to play, this follow-up is a major improvement in terms of stretching the graphics to the peak of performance, offering slick, smooth scrolling and featuring excellent, compulsive game play. In this all new adventure strarring kid genius Billy Blaze, a new alien invasion threatens to wipe out our very galaxy, the Milky Way!. Amazing new features include: 3-D perspective, Star Wars-style text scrolling, sloped surfaces, multiple sound card support with brilliant music and digitised sound effects, and out-of-this-world graphics. Three versions are avaible: 256-colour VGA, 16-colour EGA, and 4-colour CGA and have to be specified when ordering."

Collector's corner:

Commander Keen in Invasion of the Vorticons is divided into three episodes: "Marooned on Mars", "The Earth Explodes", and "Keen Must Die!", and the game was published through a shareware model whereby "Marooned on Mars" was released for free, and the other two episodes were available for purchase.
