Flames On Earth is the second game in the trilogy. It takes place right after the events of Mort's Rescue, with Commander Keen discovering two things, the Mortimer McMire he has rescued actually appears to be a droid, and there is a Dragon Mothership, which is intended to set Earth on flames. The Mortimer McMire droid was built by Mortimer McMire, intending to be a distraction to Commander Keen. Inside the Dragon Mothership, are eight flame rays, which are to power up the flames that the Dragon Mothership will be firing soon. Commander Keen must take out these eight flame rays, before it is too late.

The Sqeek Battle is the final game in the trilogy. The story continues after the events of Flames On Earth. After disabling the flame rays of the Dragon Mothership, Commander Keen used his Locater 1000 to locate the Sqeeks. Commander Keen had learned from the Sqeek Elders that the Sqeeks are not evil, and were mind-controller by Mortimer McMire. Commander Keen must travel through the home planet of the Sqeeks, Cheesicon V, and search for Mortimer McMire.
