Commander Keen in his alias as Billy blaze is in his backyard shed, industriously working on his school report, due at the end of the month. He now has only one day left to complete it and get his standard A+ grade. He's making absolutely sure not to receive any distracting transmissions from alien civilizations, contact and allies or enemies for news of their activities or talk to any friends or family members that may be kidnapped and eaten by alien menaces. In short, he's determined to let nothing interrupt him as he completes his epic magnum opus, 'What I did for summer vacation'

Suddenly there is a flash of light and Billy finds himself standing in the middle of a forest clearing, his trademark pink shirt, pogo stick and packers helmet with him.

Standing in front of him are two enormous rodents, resembling large albino weasels. They introduce themselves as L'emm and C'lyk. Keen has been abandonded on the suspiciously earthlike planet of Qmatic. He must locate the mines of Kuliwil and navigate through them with speed if he's to make it back home on time to complete his assignment, or at all.


There are different point items, most of them are sweets, with a strawberry serving as the 100 point item.
