Re: Keen 3 in Galaxy style

Great job, this looks really cool and succeeds at what it tries to do. I especially like the stairways. When I did the stairs, I lined each step three pixels apart. Took several minutes to calculate the bottom step from the top one. If the stairs were connected on-screen, the pattern would be perfe...

Keen 3 in Galaxy style

I've seen and tried out Dr. Colussus' great remakes of "Marooned on Mars" and "Earth Explodes". However a remake of the third game is not going to be created. I'm not skilled at modding and I'm no way a skilled artist, but I was able to put together a map that puts quite a fews things in 3D perspect...

I sometimes where Lt. Barker was when Keen was destroying the Tantalus Rays (Keen 2) and infiltrating Vorticon VI (Keen 3).

Re: Old UK cartoon similar to Command Keen: Fantastic Max

I'd like to see what Commander Keen can do as a baby. With an IQ of 315, he'd walk and talk at the age of one.

Re: Commander Keen in the newspaper?!

The closest resemblance to Commander Keen in a newspaper I saw was Captain Baseball Bat and Bicycle Helmet Girl in Max Payne.

Re: It says it's Commander Keen but it isn't.

I think the game is called "Commander Keens Trek 96". How Cyber.EX (Or Cyberdigital) managed to publish this title without getting a copyright charge is a mystery. Lazy Games did a review on this weird title at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=469Br9JIrG4 along with a Jazz Jackrabbit that isn't.

Re: Quake is a Commander Keen sequel?

When I first read this advertisement of "Fight for Justice" it got me thinking of a platforming game starring a Thor-like protagonist.

Re: Klik & Play on Windows 10

I've never used that game editor. I know that Europress Software used it to make their Living Classics storybooks. It allowed the creation of programs with minimal programming required. Alice in Wonderland was they first did. I've tried all their classics except the Hunchback of Notre Dame. These ga...

Re: Why does this game look like Keen?

The elements that Secret Agent and Commander Keen have in common are: 1. The Teddy Bear item 2. Flat platforms with no grabbing ledges 3. Vital points to destroy (Satellites in Secret Agent, Tantalus Rays in Keen 2) 4. Two different game modes. Overworld mode and platform game mode. 5. A lot platfor...

Re: Keen in BioMenace 2 - aka 'Why is he a hostage?'

The Early version of Major Stryker (Called "Strike Force" at the time) was going to feature (or mention if not feature) Commander Keen, Duke Nukem and Snake Logan. That's four different Apogee characters in one game. But it was not to be. This information is mention in the 1992 April catalog executa...

Re: Bio Menace Remastered sprites

Those sprites look like Macintosh graphics. Would have been interesting to see Bio Menace released on the Mac System 7.
