Commander Keen is a series of 2D platform action-adventure games developed by id Software. In each of them you play Billy Blaze, a child genius who saves the world.

The first three games of the Commander Keen series did not have music, but the second three were scored by Bobby Prince.

Other Keen Games

Keen Dreams was made between Keen 3 and Keen 4 so that id Software could fulfill a contractual obligation with Softdisk Publishing. It was meant to have music, but it was scrapped at the last minute. The Game Boy Color version of Commander Keen has little to do with the series, and was developed by a third party company.
