That filehosting is a tangle of malicious string. And in its own madness, they confused download with upload.

That worked better. Everything runs goodly, Keen3.exe is not included (not a problem for me, I always have one handy), and my first impression was "Hey look! Chips Challenge!"

I stuck the .zip file in me old Dropbox, so... that works, I guess. Get it here!

Play it now! Right now! Unless you have to go to bed. Or you're working. Or something. But play it now!

EDIT: Good show, Flyingmouse. This really grabs my attention right off the bat. Thanks to everyone who made the effort to fill Keen Day 2013 with many goodies!

The lesson here is a simple one: Dropbox >> all.
What you really need, not what you think you ought to want.

Hurray for dos... dropbox!

I like these kind of puzzles! So minimalistic, yet cleverly designed. If it wasn't the screenshot, I wouldn't be downloading this right now. So thanx for the screenshot also.

So many ideas to steal, so little time.

Offtopic: You burglar! If it wasn't you, I was to post many interesting things, but you would stole them all! And interestingly enough, at the same time you have a strong opinion against illegal software. Hah! :)

Ontopic: the level pack is awesome! It's more like a mod actually. There's a lot of levels variety which is cool. My favorite levels would be the puzzle ones. Most of the levels are cool and enjoyable, especially those that aren't too big. The mountain level is also cool, but unnecessary long and a heck of a labyrinth. And my other complain is for the white levels. They are out of place, frustrating and are not interesting.

Overall, this is a very good and quality level pack that's enjoyable and it's worth playing it. 8/10.

*steal them all. I'm also a grammar nazi.



Though I would note that the concept of 'stealing' ideas in this context may be better rendered as 'ripping off' or 'poorly copying' since the ideas in question are not copyrighted, nor does it seem that the owner would much care if they were copied; such duplication of ideas would reflect poorly on the copier if done inelegantly since it would show a severe lack of creativity.

I'm gonna be honest, I actually based (read: copied) the labyrinth/cave level off the original level 15. :o I'd intended to make it actually beatable, then branched off it a little bit.
And I was trying something new with the white levels; they failed rather badly.

Well they can't be worse than my levels I don't think. But that level 1 door puzzle was a strike of genius.

A nice set of levels. Some of the levels required a bit too much intelligence and/or patience, but nothing a little cheating won't fix. :D It always amazes me to see what people come up with the same tileset and elements, and once again I was not disappointed. Many clever ideas and devious things I have never considered. Liked the 'speedrun' parts the best. The moment with the Mangling Machine leg crushing through the floor and DIE written there and you're dead if you don't move fast enough -- just great. The first level was a great example of a one screen level, haven't seen those in a while.
