The regular Vorticon that you will meet in the levels. Easy to defeat by one shot to kill. Unfortunately these Vorticons also like to jump which can pose a real hazard. Turning off the lights will solve that problem.

Platforms are a major convenience- even a necessity on Fribbulus Xax. In most places they are used to transport you over dangerous obstacles, or to places out of reach. Many of the platforms(or "plats" as the locals call them) are still the old style which are operated by Bips. Other types of platforms occur on other planets as well.
These little robotic like creatures don't really hurt you at all. Actually they can be pretty helpful when they move up, down and around walls. You can use them almost as a platform and ride around the level on them. But be careful for they can get annoying and push you into some slime or other nasty stuff!
Switches in Keen 1 and 3 only control lights and bridges; switches in Keen 4-6 only activate/deactivate platforms and bridges. Switches in K6 can be jumped or pogoed off, just as they are flicked downwards.
