It doesn't matter. Keen is a genious and invented his own touch screen. :P

The original iWatch doesn't use proper EGA colours. Here is a version that does:

[edit]
Someone said that it didn't look '80s Retro enough. Well:

And one with that grainy '80s digital screen

In the 80s you could see the wire they separated the pixels with. :P
There was a tiny "border" for each one.

DO EET! I've been wanting to see what your engine can do for a long time now.
I've started it, but I don't have the time to finish it. I guess you've done enough modding to know how much work this is. Anyway, I've decided to upload what I've got so far: ck6.zip
To play it, just get the most recent version of the engine and copy the files from both archives into the same folder.

Notes:
- There are no moving platforms and no enemies in this level, but I put in some sitting Yorps, where there should have been enemies.
- The switches don't work, since they are completely different from the switches in Keen 4 & 5.
- Walking on the tree's branches is a bit buggy since they are now using a collision info that was never supposed to be used this way. Just jump when you are trying to walk up on them. Walking down should work ok.

If you would like to finish the level, you might want to check out the german forum for the documentation.
Hail to the K1n9, baby!

I don't think I ever got over how... old keen looks in this pic. He's almost the same size as the vorticon!

The second one is nice, but that still doesn't look like Keen's wristwatch. :P Also, you could have used two shades of green, doesn't the original menu have more than one?

I always figured the Vorticons were short, the size of bipedal large dogs say.

Depends on the breed. I always think "Irish Wolfhound". Think about it, they're extremely huge and strong. In fact, they're the most common police dog in my area.

I never got over how old the person holding the photo looks; Check out how chapped and wrinkled that finger is!

What's all this dog stuff? Aren't they supposed to be kangaroos? :confused
They're almost twice the size of Billy in the game so I don't get why the one in the photo is so short.

Maybe he's an eight-year-old Vorticon.
