Commander Keen in the Bobrick Tower is a one-level mod by StupidBunny, released for Keen Day 2012. In spite of its relative shortness, the mod was in development for nearly four years. In the mod, Keen must repel an alien invasion being led by a mysterious human known only as Bobrick. These aliens, the Ziraxi, are described as "a race of inordinately evil aliens from planet Fascisticus VII". The gameplay takes place in a single level, the "Bobrick Tower" the mod is named after, which for a single level is very long. The height of the tower is exaggerated, with the tower being made to appear to reach into space.
