Re: Your most memorable level or place in Keen?

Pretty much all of Keen 4. The first Commander Keen creature I saw was the bounder. I was 6. I've liked happy faces and cute things ever since. I loved the secret area in Border Village. It was such a weird place compared to the rest of the game. I also really liked Crystalus. My late uncle, who int...

Proper Pronunciation?

Is there a proper pronunciation for some of the more complicated aliens? I've always called Shikadi Shee-kah-dee, but I just realized that its way more fun to pronounce it Shik-ah-dee (like Chick-a-dee). Watch out, here come the chickadees, I mean shikadis.

Possible to get glitched book in Keen 1?

In the secret city in Keen 1 there is this: http://www.shikadi.net/wiki/keen/images/c/c8/Keen1_inaccessible_book.png Can't you get the book and escape by taking advantage of the shoot through the roof glitch? It's pretty tough to do, but... Similarly, you might be able to get all the points this way...

Re: Donuts at Hillville

That's really tough. I wonder if it's easier going in that direction. I was trying the other way.

What is Keen Dreams and Galaxy about?

It is said that Keen 1 is about exploration, Keen 2 is about puzzles, and Keen 3 is about combat. If this is the case, what are dreams, 4, 5, and 6 about?

Donuts at Hillville

Hello. Does anyone know how to get the donuts at Hillville without dying? It seems impossible.

Monster Bash Scoring

I'm competing with a friend on monster bash scores. Does anyone know how the score system works? I know that theres a 50k bonus for getting all the items, 50k for all the skulls, and 50k for par time. Is it possible to get all 3? Par time's score seems too low to be worth going for otherwise. Also, ...

Re: Difficulty vs Opportunity in Keen 1: Number Crunching

The idea really wouldn't be to make a level that people would want to play, or one that would just be challenging. I'm more thinking levels that keeners would play at the seventh level of Hell. Beatable, but super unpleasant, annoying and unfair. Having people submit videos of them playing through t...

Re: Difficulty vs Opportunity in Keen 1: Number Crunching

One day we'll need to have a 'worst level ever' competition. I mean, how bad can you make a level? Not just 'Die as soon as you enter' bad but 'I have lost the will to live' bad. KeenRush has already won it. Actually I really like his levels. Yeah, many are crazy hard but they're oftentimes really ...

Re: Difficulty vs Opportunity in Keen 1: Number Crunching

There's a lot of things these calculations don't catch. I could make a level impossible due to 1 kill tile, fill the level with points, and these calculations would say its the best level ever. :) I actually did something similar a while back, but used ammo\points per second as a measure. A level ha...

Difficulty vs Opportunity in Keen 1: Number Crunching

So lately, I've been asking myself, if I know how difficult a given level is, and how many points are in a given level, can I estimate how profitable a given level is vs its risk? Just looking at Keen 1 in the Keen wiki, I did some number crunching. What I found was interesting, and I figured you gu...

Yeah, if I didn't have to rerecord stuff, I could have gotten it lower at the end. Did you do anything different?

Keen 1 Least Point Challenge

I did another challenge run, this time of Commander Keen 1. The goal of this run is to complete all of the levels with the least score possible. I think I pulled it off. Most of the levels were recorded in the same run. 2 of them were rerecorded later, because I realized I could skip a few lollipops...

crystal caves price of crystals?

So I did a playthrough of crystal caves 1 and I found that I had $999,750 at the end of the game. Mylo then went and cashed in the crystals, and that gave me a little over 1,000,000. Why did Mylo go crystal hunting in the first place? If the crystals only gave him ~$1,000, and that's all he needed f...
