Play as twin geniuses Billy and Billie as they race to save the galaxy with their brawls-to-the-wall collection of gadgets and a heapin’ helpin’ of well-intentioned mayhem.

Commander Keen marks the rebirth of a cult classic franchise, as well as the studio’s first foray into mobile games.

Commander Keen brings the next generation of kid geniuses to your mobile devices with throwback Saturday morning cartoon style. Build your collection of gadgetry and gear so you can blast, zap, bounce, bubble, teleport, disintegrate, drone-strike, freeze, flambé and rocket-boost your way across the universe in Story Mode — or go head-to-head vs. other players in an absolutely gonzo-bananas real-time Battle Mode.

For the team at ZeniMax Online Studios, Commander Keen represents a first foray into mobile gaming and an opportunity to revitalize a cult classic franchise with an all-new spin.

“With the new Commander Keen, we wanted to stay true to the platforming history of the original series, while making gameplay feel mobile-first,” explains Kira Schlitt, the game’s Creative Director. “There’s a lot of slap-happy nonsense in our brand-new gadget-based action, particularly in Battle Mode.”

“We are very excited to finally unveil ZOS’s first mobile game,” says Matt Firor, Studio Director at ZeniMax Online Studios. “We love the Keen series’ unique character and attitude, and we think it pairs perfectly with this colorful, cartoony style, making for a great combination of fun and tactical depth.”
