Dr. Colossus: The Temple of Cydonia is a Keen 5 mod released by Dr. Colossus.
Even though this mod is currently in an alpha state with only one level, it includes a new player and three enemies (plus a not yet inserted one). The main inspiration came from the Biomenace/Keen crossover mod Keen Crisis Earth. Therefor the author had intended that the main character would be unable to use a Pogo-Stick. However, this patch was never made. Furthermore the author intended to enable shooting left and right while the protagonist is ducking.


Commander Keen and the Vorticons weren't able to disassemble Mortimer's mind control machine. This machine is operated with an unknown radioactive energy source and none of them know how to turn it off. Lest anyone accidentally triggers a nuclear explosion when they dismantling it, they have decided to hide it. The vorticons put the machine deep under the ancient temple of Cydonia on the planet Mars.
After invading a Vorticon reserach lab Dr. Colossus discovered the secret hideout of the machine. Now he is on his way to the planet Mars to bring the mind control machine in his possession.
