Space Evaders is a Keen 4 mod by Levellass that was claimed to be made in a 24-hour period. It is also notable for featuring a Shoot 'em up kind of gameplay.

Gameplay

The gameplay was heavily patched to go from a platformer game to a Space Invaders-style game. The player controls Keen, who is on his BwB, as he fires shots at an army of red aliens that spawn from above. If an alien reaches the bottom of the screen, then Keen will lose a life. Score is gained from shooting at the aliens, and getting a certain amount of score will award an extra life. When about 300 of the aliens have been shot down, the game will end.

The game is played in a random selection of one of the 86 levels that are in the game, which all have the same setup, the only different thing being the background. There are lots of new cheats that can be used in the game.
