In Halloween Horrors Keen must save Easter Bunny, Tooth Fairy and Santa Claus, who have been captured. In order to do so, he has to overcome evil Halloween enemies and travel through scary places. Since it's Halloween, he wears a nice Vorticon costume.

This mod was the second of two collaborative efforts completed by the consortium 'Benvolilord', consisting of New Zealand's Levellord and Ireland's Benvolio, who coordinated the project via e-mail in the mid 2000s.

Technical Information

  • Graphics: The graphics were completely redrawn for this mod.
  • Levels: 14 levels with a scary and dark atmosphere.


It was around 7.30 on October the 31st and darkness was descending fast over Madison, Wisconsin. In each house children prepared for the most fun night of the year, while adults prepared for the least fun night of the year. The Blaze household was no different. The youngest kid, a girl, was eagerly putting on a witch's costume. The oldest, a teenage boy, had already headed across town with his pockets stuffed with bangers, rockets and sparklers.

The middle child, Billy, was equally anticipation of the night. He had it allocated as a night free from world-saving duties. He was donning a vorticon outfit. He had just put the vorticon head on when suddenly his photachyon tranceiver rang.

"Drat Hello?"
"Umm, Hello Commander Keen"
"Oh, its you. This had better be to say Happy Halloween!"
"Uuuh, Happy Halloween? ... and, um...."
"Well... me and the other holiday personifications are being held hostage in the Halloween sector of the holiday world of Phestiv by a shadowy figure!"
"Don't tell me, if I don't rescue you Earth is doomed?"
"Err, total collapse of human imagination leading to the destruction of all life, yeah."
"And there's four of you right? Always is in a Keen1 mod."
"No, only 3 this time actually."
"Fine. I hope you realize you've just ruined my Halloween!"
"Well, look on the bright side, you, um...."
