Total points in Keen4 entirely

Post by szemi »

Just wanna let you know I counted how many points you can get in the entire game.
Well, result is: 737200 points

(If I counted it wrong, let me know.)
Yeah, piece of cake!

You mean without dying? You can get unlimited points if you keep dying after getting an extra life.

A great challenge here: get all the points, on hard, without dying (or saving) once. I couldn't do it.

Well, from KeenWiki I just added the numbers (from all the levels) to the calculator exactly and that's how I counted it.

Is it known who the best people at actually playing Keen are? Much more difficult to find out this information in this kind of game, compared to competitive multiplayer games. It's definitely not me anyway!

Is that including items which are impossible to reach?

what unreachable water flask? as far as I know every item is in reach as long as you discover the secret within the secret...

Sorry, not Pyramid of the Moons! I checked and the unreachable 1UP flask is in the Pyramid of the Gnosticene Ancients.
Just check the upper left corner under the top of the pyramid.

has anybody ever tried to reach this flask? the wiki states that: "[this Lifewater flask] is kind of impossible to reach without cheating (the one above the knife shooter on the left side)"

this seems to be one of the last unraveled mysteries of Keen 4. what about a challenge? the first who is able to record a successful attempt to reach for this flask will win the competition.
