After finishing his adventure with the mad King on Vorticon V, he goes back home, go to his bed and falls asleep. Then, when he sleeps, he dreams about what happens last day, how he stops the mad king at vorticon V, and what happens before a space ship that want to burn down Vorticon IV. Keen lands on with the Bean-with-Beacon Megarocket on the Mothership with 8 new Tantalus Rays, ready to be disabled. Don't wait longer and try this new adventure All the Vorticons are controlled by the mad Vorticon King being on the planet Vorticon V. That's of no concern now--you must save the Vorticon VI by destroying those Tantalus Rays! The Vorticons have robots, just like the Shikadi--but these shot more regular, but less shots each time


This mod takes place in Keens dreams, so Monsters from previous adventures appear mixed up.
