Like most Apogee platformers Cosmo's Cosmic Adventure is actually a trilogy. The first part of the trilogy is shareware, the two other parts are not. The names of the three episodes are:
  1. Forbidden Planet: Adventure 1 of 3
  2. Forbidden Planet: Adventure 2 of 3
  3. Forbidden Planet: Adventure 3 of 3
