I didn't found Keen. I am pretty sure that was ID Software indeed ;-) Same story - I was on holidays to my grandparents, living abroad, when I was 4 years old. They had Keen 4 on a floppy drive. I immediately fell in love with the game and played it countless hours with my dad and with my friends. ...

Just curious - did anyone ever completed all 111 original levels? As a kid, I always got stuck around level 90.

That one pyramid where you can get outside and run about on the hay bales. Don't remember which pyramid it was, but it was a tricky one to find, especially on hard mode when you're getting shot at. I remember getting out there as a kid, but I don't remember how and haven't been back since haha SPOI...

I'm glad to see somebody shares my love for whisky, but I am not The Shifted One. Seems like a fun mod, though.

Regardless of whether CK6 is legal or illegal, it will not be a problem to distribute it (illegally) on forums such as PCKF. The copyright holder is not going to care about a 20 year old game that only a few people on earth are still playing. Any legal conflict would not make sense for them, because...

Thanks much. I indeed created a (complete) Vorticon level pack. The laptop on which I saved this level pack was stolen unfortunately. Not sure if I ever posted the level pack here. In any event, it was so insanely difficult that not many people would have been able to get past level 8. Great signatu...

CK 4 level sets

All,

It has been a while since I played Commander Keen last. As I always loved CK4 the best, are there any (new) level sets for CK4?

Apologies if there is a location for all level sets that I am not aware of, but I cannot immediately find it on www.shikadi.net

Amazing run - very impressive.

Isn't using the pogo incessantly in level 1 faster than what Cosmo is doing (walking)?

I played CK so much in my early years - there were barely any secrets I did not discover without cheats. In fact, in CK 4 and 5, there were only two I had never been able to find myself. -Pyramid of the moon -> How to get on top of the pyramid, etc. I just did not know the trick where you had to jum...

To all active PCKF members

This might come off as a little random, but I think it is amazing that after all these years there is still a community out there that keeps Commander Keen alive. I grew up with Commander Keen. It was the first game I ever played and even though I do not play it a lot anymore, I have played the orig...

This is just wonderful. As CK4 has always been my favorite Keen, I've been looking forward to a new (challenging) levelpack for years. The idea of the Ice Cream / Life Flask is great. It is exactly the challenge I was missing in the original CK4 levels. Shame I will not have a lot of time to play un...

This really looks wicked. From what I have seen from your screenshots, you managed to transfer the whole CK4 atmosphere to a new level. Amazing, keep up the good work mate!

Keen 3 complaints

A little bit of browsing through this forum kinda makes me believe that everyone really has trouble completing CK3 (levels too hard?!). To me, it was one of the most easiest Keens to complete. C'mon, the last level was a joke. The second last level was even a bigger joke, I think a 3 year old kid co...

It's so funny to me that everyone had trouble finding the way to the Pyramid of the Forbidden. I don't think it took me very long before I found my way to the PofF (I think even before I completed CK4 on hard). On top of that, I'm proud to say that I found all the secret levels by myself, without ch...

Even though I haven't posted for over a year, the release of Battle of the Brains is worth a post. I checked out the forum a couple of days ago, only to find out that BotB is released. To be honest, it was the hardest keen to complete of the 'official' series (I'll include 7, 8 and 9 therein). Was a...
