Crystal Caves: Mylo Versus the Supernova

It's Commander Keen's helmet in the acid pool! That's really cruel.

Mylo Steamwitz returns to the crystal caves in the final episode of Apogee's game series. He is trying to collect enough crystals to buy a solar system, which he wants to convert into a vacation resort. The inner planets would be for shimmers and tanning, the outer planets would have ski resorts, and the middle planets all the lodging and tourist shops.

This game uses the same engine as the Secret Agent Man series, but with a couple of improvements. There is a bit more story, and you can reverse gravity to walk on the ceilings! There is also a bit more scenery and more diverse creatures. Your mission is to find all the crystals in every level to fund the solar system. Meanwhile you've got to be careful not to accidentally shoot the air supplies!

After Mylo collected all the crystals, he buys a solar system from Rip Eweoff, but it explodes immediately after Rip takes off. Six months later Mylo gets an idea and he opens a Monolith Burger Mylo Burger restaurant.

Transcription of the ending sequence

Rip: "Glad you could make it, Mylo." Mylo: "Sorry, I'm late, but I had to clean a few twibbles out of my ship's anti-plasma fuel port." Rip: "Twibbles, huh. I bought one once, and now I've got 400. Anyway, I'm in a bit of rush, can we get down to business..."

Rip pulls out the deed and puts it quickly on the table. He says: "Mylo, just sign here on the dotted line and she's all yours, heh heh heh." Mylo: "Hell...shouldn't I read this first? You know, all this fine print..." Rip: "No, no, no, no--that's just lawyer talk, it means nothing to you and me, heh heh heh." Mylo: "Well, I guess, if you say so."

Mylo signs the document and returns to his ship. Seconds later Rip's ship goes into hyperspace. Mylo stands near his ship's viewport, a happy man.

Finally rich, he thinks to himself. Finally rich. As he turns from the view, he notices a bright flash.

KKAAAAAABBBOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMM!!!!

A terrible second later...

Mylo barely escapes with his life as the star he just bought erupts into a fiery supernova. The Millennium Kiwi rocks and tumbles as shock waves pummel Mylo senseless. "What a bummer." Mylo speeds away from the blazing inferno realizing he's blundered again.

Two weeks later...

Barely recovered, Mylo returns to the spot where he used to own a solar system. All that's left marking the location is a big, stupid cloud of colorful vapor and dust. "Rats, I buy a solar system and I get stuck with a nebula." Suddenly, Mylo has the first real brainstorm of his life!

Six months later...

"Welcome to Mylo Burger, can I take your order please?" Two teenagers in their space fan order their meal. "We'll take two Mylo Burgers with mayo, two Solar Fries and a couple of Mylo Mocha Malts." "That'll be $59.95 at the first window. Please fly through."

Mylo Burger is born... Finally, one of Mylo's ideas has paid off! Ever since he opened Mylo Burger, overlooking the brilliantly colorful nebula, his burger stand has been the hottest hangout in the galaxy.

Now he's even thinking about franchises--but first he must wait for other stars to explode!

A happy Mylo... In the meantime, Mylo will relax and count his cash until his next great adventure takes him into the vast unknown of space...

... The final frontier. These are the continuing voyages of Mylo Steamwitz. To boldly blunder where no adventurer has trekked before. To seek new treasures and profite...

The end...
