In our last episode, Keen stopped the mad king from firing at Vorticon VI, going to his palace to stop him, where he found a mindbelt, but not one built by Mortimer!

Episode three: Fall of the Sudkoka

Keen is worried, if Mortimer is not the only one who can make mindbelts, then the whole Grand Intellect thing can happen again. But who could hate the Vorticons so much?

The mad king, not as mad as first thought, explained that the planet had been visisted by a small ship carrying two demons who had enslaved their world. Tracking the ship's radio, Keen locates a purple, forrested planet populated with more demons and their just as evil green genie masters, who specialize in acids and nuclear technology.


The planet turns out to be the closest to its star, a burning world with a surface temrature hot enough to boil water. It is fortunate Keen is wearing his asbestos underwear! Now he has to find who is in charge and get them to stop this, before his BWB Megarocket melts.

Landing just south of a small town, he hopes to meet his new foes in lesser numbers, if he is lucky. But his luck may well run out.


Picture Name Shots Harmful Speed Replaces Description
Lesser Demon 3 Yes 90 Vorticon Grunt Lesser demons are considered Sudkoka Civilians.
Black Demon 2 Yes 50 Vorticon Woman Black Demons are also considered Sudkoka Civilians.
Green Genie Immortal Yes 65 Meep Green Genies shoot Radon 222s, but these can only move horizontally and zap on other enemies (including other Radon 222, made by the Green Genie or not).
Gargoyle 1 Yes 250 Youth Gargoyles are rather rare within the game.
Slicestar Immortal No 200 Jack Ball They are only found in the first level, and behave as an immortal bouncing slicestar.
Radon 222 1 Stuns 400 Jack Unlike the Jacks, these can be shot and "just" stun. They are spawned by Green Genie.
Shikadi Commander 15 Yes N/A Vortininja There is only one Shikadi Commander and it is found in the last level of the game, behaving as the final boss: killing the Commander wins the game. The Shikadi Commander is aided by two Radon 222s and has a lot of space to jump. Touching the roof of the level lets two Lesser Demons fall in.
