Crash on Gobo III is a Keen 1 mod produced by Ceilick. It was the first mod released by him, although he never finished it. Some of the levels are still the original levels from Keen 1, but they're still playable because the game didn't change the tile properties. In fact most of the graphics are mere recolored original tiles.

This mod is the first part in the "Invasion of the Yorps" trilogy by Ceilick.


Billy Blaze, eight year-old genius, was flying through space when his ship, the Bean-with-Bacon Megarocket, started to move out of control. It was headed for the planet Gobo III, a strange jungle planet. After crashing on the planet keen finds that four parts are broken and he must find them to get off the planet. He grabs his brothers foot ball helmet and his neural stunner and becomes...

 COMMANDER KEEN--defender of the Universe!

Keen started searching for the parts he needed when he came upon a strange sign. It said " Find Keen and kill him" "so" keen thinks. " Whoever controlled my ship towards the planet wants me dead." Keen sets out toward the nearest city to find the parts he needs.

Remastered Version

A remastered version was later released by Unfleexable. The map level is reshaped here to only contain the nine modified levels of the game. Furthermore, all the levels were slightly modified, and are now mostly harder, with more monsters in them.

Ultra Version
