One of the first games I ever played, so I was glad to find it on Steam.

It's a nice platformer, but can't do much more than jump and shoot straight forward. Try to avoid the gaps and collect as many points as you can (not as easy as it sounds mind you ;) ) Since everything kills you in one hit, prepare to start some levels over and over again. But considering the age of this game, it's still very entertaining (come on you know you love MS-Dos)

Being one of the first games, I ever played, Commander Keen is the PC equivalent of Super Mario. You jump, run and shoot your way through 2D levels, avoiding traps, gaps and monsters.

Being an oldschool game, the difficulty is sometimes a little bit silly.

While 4, 5 and 6 had mid save options, in 1 - 3 you could only save in the main area, not inside levels. Combined with nearly unkillable powerjumping...we called them Zombie kangaroos...this game is quite a number of difficulty.

After the 4th part you also got a difficulty option, that enables traps and increase the amount of monsters.

Beside that, the game has a little ongoing story about the main character, explaining him and why he is doing all that (genius child, build a blaster and a rocket ship with parts of his familys home).

(PS: Every game has at least one hidden area and level)


The bad part about the bundle (yes its 5 games in one), that it is missing the last 2 games. 6 was a special limited edition (who limits a game???) and 7...we dont talk about 7.


The story doesnt end with 6 or 7 ether, so fans made Keen 7 (denying the existence of the real keen 7), Keen 8 and Keen 9, who look quite decent and end the Keen story for good. Check it out on Youtube.

These are the games that defined my childhood.
Better do not buy them, if you did not play these games back in the old days.
You will never come to enjoy them the way I did.

My thoughts when I saw this on Steam:

"Oh wow Commander Keen! I used to love those games when I was a kid, I bet I can beat them now that I am much older"

"NOPE, still just a F%&*$#ing HARD!"

Classic games, simple games, difficult games. Even after twenty years I still can't solve some of the puzzles thrown at me, but I still enjoy trying!

Okay, let me start this review out by saying this: Steam royally screwed up what could have ben an awesome product. There is just not enough reason to justify this purchase when it is the bare minimum of what could have been done to make this a working game. The Commander Keen series is an amazing set of games, a piece of the history of PC gaming, and Steam treated this piece of history like most people treat their garbage.

To elaborate, Commander Keen was the first PC game to have Parallax scrolling, the same kind of scrolling that Super Mario uses to be able to have a Platformer. At the time, it was a huge deal to have the entire level not be a single screen. So Commander Keen was produced to prove that a PC could support a full Platformer of many screens and levels. The game has an overworld and lets you play levels in any order, you get to shoot enemies from a distant and it is also the Nintendo Hard you would expect from a classic game, so it should be a dream for people who wish to visit a time when 2D was king. To neglect this classic trilogy and the 2/3rds of a trilogy sequel would be a shame.

Now, I am not suggesting you buy this pack. Especially if you don't know the series already. This pack is a bare minimum attempt at a quick buck off of some old shareware games. Yes, you heard me, SHAREWARE. If you are not aware, due to age or not being a PC gamer until after Floppy Disks disappeared, Shareware was the precursor to Playable Demo games on services such as Playstation Network, X-Box Live Arcade and yes, even Steam, where you would get a part of the game on a floppy disk at no charge, to try out. In the main menu, you would often see an "Order Now!" or "Ordering Details" option that let you buy the full game's disk for a reasonable sum of money. It spread the word of companies and got them some revenue as well as positive customer feedback that people were willing to pay money for their ideas.

So, since the game (well Commander Keen 1 and Commander Keen 4 are Shareware, at least) is technically free, you would think that this pack would do something more to make you want to buy it, right? Well, you'd be wrong. In fact, this pack is actually more of a hassle than going out and downloading Commander Keen 1, 2, 3 and 4 and a DOSBox Emulator yourself. To access any game past Commander Keen 1, you have to open up your Steam window, go into your library and launch it from there. Double Clicking the Shortcut that is generated on the desktop does nothing more than launch the first game. Not even a hastily slapped together Commander Keen selection menu screen comes up, just the default steam menu with radial buttions even after going through the hassle.

So I suggest to you to save your money, go get a DOSBox Emulator, and download Commander Keen 1 to try out. You don't have to send any money and it is legal because that's how the game was released back in the day. And if you go and get the non-shareware games? Well, it's not like ID software is going to come after you for picking up a title that they don't even have the rights to anymore. Though, the one thing this pack does RIGHT is that Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine has it's copy protection (having one of the items you need to complete the level not spawn at all, making the second level impossible to complete) set to working properly as if you bought the game.

Back in the day this was one of the best games out there and I would recommend it for nostalgia alone.

The graphics are obviously dated but unlike most old 3D games this is still playable in my opinion. The gameplay mostly consists of jumping and shooting but there are a lot of different levels and enemies so it won't bore you quickly.

When I played Commander Keen as a kid I didn't think the game was that hard but I'll have to admit these days I think it's difficult.

I'd recommend it to anyone who was alive in 1990 for nostalgia's sake, the younger generation(s) probably won't enjoy this game.

-Quick Review-
Commander Keen Complete Pack is a DOS platformer from the 1990's by Apogee Software (now known as 3D Realms). While the game is very much focused on being an arcade platformer game, the designers included a story explaining what was going on within the game... Interested? Read on.

-Detailed breakdown review-
Story: Billy Blaze is your standard 8 year old boy, by standard we mean he making his own unraveling adventure in space, starting off with fighting the Vorticons and saving planet earth, then receiving news of a new threat to the Galaxy Keen rushes off to consult the Keepers of the Oracle.
It is worth noting for die-hard-Commander-Keen Fans, that not all games are present: 1 Marooned on Mars. 2 The Earth Explodes. 3 Keen Must Die! 4 Secrets of the Oracle. 5 The Armageddon Machine. are available in the Commander Keen Complete Pack.

Game Play: It has already been established that the Commander Keen Complete Pack is a platformer, but in addition to standard movement controls you have a laser gun, and a Pogo Stick (being the signature item of the franchise). You can jump, and the Pogo stick gives you even higher jumps. When I was little, no one in my family knew what this game was called. So we called lovingly called it "Pogo"!
In Addition to the movement features of the game, there are various "accessory" items that help you unlock different levels, or unlock doors within a level. While in many of the games there are levels and extra's you can skip over, trying to track down all the secrets in these games really increases it's replay-ability. (Hey, keep in mind this is a DOS game developed in the 1990's, the fact that this type of game is still fun to play is pretty impressive)

Achievements: There are no achievements in the Commander Keen games, however there are High Scores. As with very old classic Arcade games; you would try to get the highest score and then put in perverted messages to the poor souls who never had the mad skills you did.

Price The Commander Keen Complete Pack is priced at $4.99, if you sit down and actually play the game you can easily get more then 4 hours worth of game play, the games have a really nice combination of difficulty, exploration, platforming and secret area's.

*Graphics Graphics is a NEW category that I'm adding exclusively for this particular review. I don't personally care about graphics in video games, I feel that bad mechanics (or Game Play) speak stronger then if you're seeing every poly in the character. But I want to emphasis that this is an old game, so if you do intend to get it without having any internal motivation, keep in mind this is a game LOOKS, SOUNDS, and often times FEELS old.

*Nostalgia Nostalgia is a NEW category that I'm adding exclusively for this particular review. I think it's pretty safe to say that 90% of the people who have played and/or reviewed this game are all motivated by the same thing: This is a game of our past. For me personally this was the first PC Game *I ever played*. Nearly the first game in general, but Super Mario Land for the Gameboy takes first place.
If you want to take a step back and know what type of game I was playing when I was a little kid, go ahead and buy this game, then let me know what you thought about it!

Conclusion: Do I recommend... or not recommend... that is the question. Most people will pass up this game, and that's fine. It probably only appeals to gamers who enjoy Platformers, or those of us who played this game when we were little.
I am going to recommend this game to people who enjoy platformers, specifically Commander Keen 4 "Secrets of the Oracle", the earlier games are more of a novelty, while still often times difficult, I personally preferred Commander Keen 4 and 5, to the original Trilogy.

This game is exactly like it was back on Windows XP, for better or for worse. This game fills me with nostalgia, and I love it in every way; however, this game is bad. The controls are weird, unreliable, and difficult to learn. However, if you enjoy older games with a semihumorous background and a dumb backstory that is unrevealed by gameplay, this game is for you.

Als die Spiele laufen lernten...

Tja, was soll man zu diesem wunderbaren Klassiker sagen: von John Carmack und id-Software vor einem viertel Jahrhundert programmiert. Die Grafik war für die damalige Zeit revolutionär, da flüssiges sidescrollen aufgrund der schwachen PC-Hardware nicht möglich schien.
John Carmack aber gelang das programmiertechnische Zauberstück, und legte damit einen wichtigen Grundstein für den PC als Spiele-Plattform.

Zusammen mit Wolfenstein3D und der Doom-Reihe, die ein ganzes Genre begründeten, war id-Software schlicht und einfach wegweisend und trieben damit auch die Entwicklung der sog. Grafikbeschleuniger mit voran.

Die Commander Keen-Reihe wurde DER klassische 2D-Plattformer auf dem PC und ist, im Gegensatz zu Super Mario, im Laufe der Zeit leider in Vergessenheit geraten. Aber vielleicht wird ja ZeniMax die derzeitige Rertro- und Rebootwelle nutzen um dieses liebevolle Jump`n`Run zu entstauben. Ich würde mich freuen.

Fazit:
Für Nostalgiker^^
