Commander Keen was one of the first ID Software's games. It was a side-scrolling platformer set in a kid, happy theme. The game was released as a shareware, and it became very popular (so popular that ID released six expisodes). The game can be edited using original TED5 editor (used by the makers to create Keen), and a few other fan-created tools and editors.

Bananasauros is a platformer that is a total conversion of Commander Keen: Marooned on Mars. Painstaking effort has been put into perfecting the difficulty...

Steam is making things wrong with this and some other games, This is abandonware, they shouldnt be taking money for this if you can simply download it for free.

One of my very first computer games. I have very fond childhood memories of Commander Keen. I am still hopeful for the completion of the series - if only id Software could find it in their hearts to give Tom Hall the IP rights to the game. The universe will be a much toastier place to be on the day Tom can start making us more Keen.
