This time the villain is Uli Trimpe, an extremely dangerous and brutal smoker. Trimpe has assaulted the planet of Boot II and occupied five colonies of the Confederation. Now Agent 4X-019 #Y Codename Combo gets the task to free the colonies by force. He has to hurry, because Trimpe plans to let them celebrate the millennium prematurely. This would cause an immediate armageddon and serious economic losses and thus must be prevented, because otherwise the (female) President could get angry. Actually, the Commander has nothing else to command during his mission but his ego, but that should already be enough.
The first version, CCCC '97, featured a very high difficulty level. Since then, the game has been revised and made less frustrating, but the challenge is still there.
In order to free the colonies the Commander has to beat a whopping 50 platform screens. In each regular level you have to reach a ruby to proceed. Sounds easy, but is not. For example, you may need to get some other items first. And naturally there are lots of mean traps and enemies you have to avoid, and the bonus lives won't pop up when you just need them. And then there are mad bosses like vampires and wannabe-archmages who will annoy you as well. But with some knowledge you can get passwords and won't have to start over again each time you play.
