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...

i think they brought quite a few games of these Commander Keen Adventures. ive played about 2 of these games back in 1995 (when games still were Floppy discs) for my 386.

the gaming genre wasnt as good back then but was still good to play with our Dos/Win 3.1 games
Classics of
Wolfenstein (1st fps to evolve to what we see today)
Duke Nukem
Lotus Chellenge racing

and the many thousands of Dos games that were made.

but to commander keen of the time i played it i Salute you Sir.

Ok Its about 15 years since I played this but to get to the fourth pyramid you have to find the pyramid with all the inch worms and collect them together. Its on a long flat-ish bit of one of the pyramids and there are loads of inch worms around (the little yellow buggers that are harmless).

Basicly the inch worms try to follow you but usually you move to fast. So move around a bit so they all come to you then give em time to all gather round and *BANG* you have yourself a giant foot to fly on to the 4th pyramid. Bit random but then I didnt write the game.

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.
