- Keen 4 v1.0: While all files from the game may have the common timestamp of "December 1 1991 13:00", it looks like this was a part of some policy coming from Apogee (I don't remember the source for that as of typing this). However, an original ZIP archive (e.g., _1GALAXY.ZIP) can be found with an...

It begins with 4 bytes of the "FORM" string, followed by a 4-bytes length value in big-endian order, followed by 4 bytes of "ILBM". For probably-technical reasons this length value is then increased by 4. Assuming we're talking about the file SHP05.ABS from The Catacomb Abyss v1.13, we get to a men...

There's cover art of Secret Agent in this Apogee Catalog. I expected to find the Crystal Caves cover in there too, I didn't.

On the yellow floppy disk is written "Keen Dreams". But anyway, I care more about the Galaxy and the Vorticons sources anyway. Also, I would not be surprised if after John publish Dangerous Dave for the phones, put Keen 1 next. I asked and Romero said the three non-Alfredo disks were not source, ho...

But for some reason only that health and level skip cheat works with the DWARF. But this site claims you should also be able to choose between the bug hunts, as well as indeed choose between the levels instead of just skip them one by one? Maybe it's for a more up-to-date version, it's not for the ...

The DWARF cheat only works in the full version.
At the main menu where you can choose between Start and Options you need to type DWARF. If you've done this right, the message Cheat Enabled will appear. Now you can press H in the game to get full health and L to go to the next level.
