Great value for the money; $1 per game.

Runs on DOSBox, so if you know what you're doing you can customize the settings and make it run optimally on your PC. Seems to run just fine out-of-the-box though.

Too bad it doesn't include Aliens Ate My Baby Sitter!. Technically, it's not part of this series, so it's understandable. It's just a shame because it doesn't seem to be available to buy anywhere else.

Hopefully they can work in trading cards at some point in the future.

OG PC platformer from the gangstas at id Software.
Basically, if you haven't completed the games in this series you're a casual.

Pick this game up and stop getting laughed at by girls.

Falsely advertised, missing keen 6 and dreams, the person who is selling this dosbox shortcut claims 6 and dreams werent part of I.D which is a lie, has the gaul to claim its a complete pack, its 5.49 for a programmed shortcut for dosbox and too cheap to provide all games... seriously making money off 5 minutes of work and still being cheap about it is pathetic.

Better off just finding the game and plugging it into dosbox yourself.

This game brings back so many great memories from my childhood. Back where most PC games were stored on tiny floppy discs, I can remember sorting out my Parent's collection just to play Commander Keen. I would 100% reccommend this game to anyone looking for a classic/retro game with a perfect combination of old-timey, simple and fun gameplay.

While the Keen games themselves are a piece of gaming history, the DOSBOX port doesn't work on a huge number of computers. I rate this collection as essentially incomplete because it has so many compatibility issues it's rare that you'll find a computer that can run it.

Keen dreams is avalible to buy but why say complete when it's not complete. Still at least one or 2 games missing. Is it worth it for what you get that is up to the person buying them the name is misleading though. I bought this and keen dreams so that's most of them

Commander Keen is a great game, a great series. Were it only that simple, I would recommend this in a heartbeat. But I cannot.

This is a horrible purchase.

Why?

For starters, maybe it's a problem with every last time I've downloaded the game, but there is no music. At all. And that's assuming that you can get it to work. This runs horribly with DOSBox, this runs horribly with Commander Genius. I'm inclined to believe that there is something intriniscally wrong with the files they are distributing in this pack.

Don't let this botched release sour you on other classic games using DOSBox; this is the only one that seems to be messed up.

Before I start this review, it should be noted that in recent years Steam did something that made dosbox crash upon clicking the play button. Here is the simple solution I came up with to run the game, that has worked for a number of people. Sadly, you will need to do this for each keen game. But they follow the same path. Enjoy!

Solution to get the game running:
Look for the [keen(#).conf] file in C:Program Files>Steam>SteamApps>common>Commander Keen>base(#)>

Open it up with notepad or notepad+ and change the output=overlay (This works on most computers, but there is an occasional card/driver combo that won't. If it doesn't then try opengl or openglnb.) Now just hit file>save and you're done. The game should run now.

Solution to getting the game running at the optimium screen resolution:
If your game is having issues with the screen being stretched or really small, you want want to edit some other values in the keen.conf file. This would be changing fullscreen=true, fulldouble=true, and fullresolution=[your screen's resolution]
Eg. fullresolution=1366x768 (When I first got the game it was running super wide and some of the game was cut off)

I have tried to make this as clear as possible, but if you still have questions, feel free to ask!

Review:
I have loved this game from the time I was a little lad. It is a really fun platformer with a pretty silly story! The pack includes the first five games of the series, but not the 6th or keen dreams. The 4th game "Secret of the Oracle" is my absolute favorite. Great story, mechanics, and art. I mean, come on! With a blaster and pogo stick, what more could a kid want (No aliens were harmed in the making of this game...ok maybe a few). The game shows a little age (especially the first few). Definitely a must have if you played the games before, but even if you haven't I think the game is worth it, although I'm a little bias.

TO FIX THE GAME ---> READ THIS THREAD!!

I haven't played all of these games; I'm sad to say it took me 20 years to track down all of these titles. Finally!! These games are amazing though! You play as Keen, equipped with a gun and a pogo stick. You collect candy and keys to advance the levels. Map is opened up similar to that of Mario World, which is a time tested winner.

These games aren't just good for the 90's; they are still really fun! This is an amazing deal to get 5 games for $5! You should buy this for sure.

Worth the $20... but it's only $5

First of all... why the **** was this not included in the 3D Realms / Apogee Anthology pack? Oh yeah.. because it's ID Software / Apogee, not 3DR / Apogee.. I was seriously disappointed, I ended up selling a bunch of my steam cards and bought this game on sale for like $1.60..

Anyways! If you never played this game for PC in early 90s... you're seriously missing out on gaming history.

The original engine was developed as the first "smooth side-scrolling system" which was built to simulate the Super Mario Bros series from Nintendo on PC. Nintendo refused to buy the engine deciding not to rekease their titles on computer and the team was left there with a working engine.

So, what happened might you ask? Commander Keen took the mario engine to the next level! Not only does this game feature side-scrolling platformer action, but also top-down RPG elements such as world maps.

I'm not going to get into what the game is about since everyone seems to do that,,, but if you have fond memories of playing Mario on the old Nintendo systems... check out this ground-breaking PC classic.

I'm not sure if there's a demo on steam or not, but you can always google "Commander Keen Shareware" if you want to try before you buy.

BETTER THAN MASS EFFECT

Commander Keen saved Earth a generation before Commander Shepard ever heard of the Reapers. Little dude built his own space ship out of soup cans. Shepard struggled building a fish tank. This 8 year-old kid was clearing out the Vorticon home planet while Shepard was telling everyone what his favorite shop on the Citadel was.

Shepard is a joke. Commander Keen is the real Spectre.

This pack doesn't include Commander Keen 6 and Keen dreams is missing. Some people have been disappointed because those games weren't included, so be aware! Don't get this pack if you’re planning on playing Keen 6 and Keen dreams.

This review is mainly pointed towards Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine, because I played the living ♥♥♥♥ out of it when I was a kid. I remember getting this game from my uncle on a floppy disk, I took the disk home and installed it, with difficulty, back then I didn't knew much about computers. I finally managed to install it and then I started playing, and I was blown away because the game was so ♥♥♥♥ing awesome. I loved messing around in the levels and exploring them, I died a lot because this was the first real game I played on PC, then I discovered this strange option called 'save' and it remembered where I was! English isn't my native language so I had trouble understanding some parts of the game. I still remember the big red guy with the automatic rifle who instantly killed you when you were in his sights, when I first encountered him I literally jumped out of my chair, I had never seen something so frightening.

And effectually I was there, the final level, I remember every second of that remarkable level and when I finished the level and I had beaten Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine, I felt great I had conquered this beast of a game. After beating the game I spent hours upon hours replaying the levels and playing pong. Later I found out that if you pressed F1 (or some other button I don't really remember), the game would load a page with the LORE of Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine, the ♥♥♥♥ing Lore of Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine, holy ♥♥♥♥. And when I found the 'lore' I looked at the pictures of all the enemies I had encountered and I even saw pictures of enemies I didn't encounter, because you could only encounter those on hard mode. (I just looked at the pictures and because at the time I didn't speak a word English.)

Years later I found out Commander Keen was available on steam and I had some money on my steam wallet and I was like: ♥♥♥♥ it I'm buying Commander Keen. And I was able to play my childhood love yet again.

Well enough of MY experiences with the game, lets actually talk about the game. It's a miracle if you actually read my story and made it so far!

Commander keen is simple platformer, it's about a guy, Keen. From my current understanding he is just a dude who travels to random planets and shoots aliens with his little laser gun, he also has a pogo stick which makes him jump higher. This pack included Keen 1,2,3,4 and 5. The first ones look really old, but the fourth and the fifth looked a lot cleaner and a lot newer. All of the games play pretty similarly and have the game character and weapons. But I didn’t really finish any other Keen game except Keen 5, so I might be wrong because some things are different later in game. But in Commander Keen 5 you have to collect four diamonds to open doors to continue within the level, then you have to find a key that opens the door to the end of the level, later you have to destroy something what looks like the power source for the space ship you are stranded on. In the game you will encounter various enemies, some are robots some are 'energy enemies', the robots can be killed the 'energy enemies' can only be stunned or can't get hit at all. You have one life, so if you get hit once you are done for, yet you can save everywhere you want, so that isn't a big problem or a hard part about this game. All in all it’s just an old school platformer, that is as unforgiving as any other old game and needless to say the game is also very fun!

After playing this game again after so many years, it made me realize that Commander Keen 4 is way superior to Commander Keen 5, because the fourth installment had way more variety. And when I look back at the levels of Commander Keen 5 I realized that they game wasn't really that special. It was just the fact that it was the first game I ever played and finished, what made it so great. The nostalgia made me love this game.

Nostalgia is a ♥♥♥♥♥.

Thanks for taking the time to read my game review of Commander Keen, one of my favorite games if not my favorite game of all time!

Commander Keen is a super retro game made by the creators of Doom(way before), a kinda cool reminder of how games once were. It's a Mario style platformer where you jump around collecting coins, avoiding/attacking enemies and traps, you also have a gun you can shoot. Commander Keen is not for the impatient gamer, this game is of a different time and needs to be respected. Expect ridged controls and somewhat convoluted menu navigation, and a totally nonsensical narrative plot. I'd give it 6.5/10 today, but 8.5/10 for people who can appreciate how it was in those days.

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!

This "Complete Pack" contains the first five full Keen titles, excluding Keen Dreams and Aliens Ate My Baby Sitter! probably due to publishing rights issues.

Commander Keen in Marooned on Mars:
The first entry into the series, and a very enjoyable one. The difficulty isn't too high or too low, just about right; it's short and sweet. Even though there is a tad bit of input lag regarding controls, it never really makes you perform pixel-perfect jumps or anything that difficult. And despite the lack of music and somewhat annoying sound FX, the title still retains a lot of its original charm.

Commander Keen in The Earth Explodes:
Out of the original trilogy, this is my least favorite one. Why? Because it's basically the first one, but quickly loses its charm when the unfair gameplay kicks in. And I don't mean "unfair" as in "challenging", I mean unnecessarily aggravating. This is due to the tad bit of input lag, bull**** level design, and annoying enemy AI. Thanks for that John Carmack.

Commander Keen in Keen Must Die!:
This entry is even more unforgiving than the second, and the lack of music and sound FX REALLY wears on you by now. Why isn't it my least favorite? The main antagonist. Without spoiling anything, the main antagonist and his simple (yet relatable) backstory make the game worth seeing through to the end, and you barely even learn anything about him until the boss fight, which luckily, isn't too hard. I'll just say... it shows a lot of humility for id Software, considering how they went on to turn the entire industry upside down multiple times.

Commander Keen in Secret of the Oracle:
This is probably my favorite Keen title, why? Well, one reason is Dopefish's glorious debut. Another is how nearly every aspect of Keen was improved vastly. This is when the Keen series felt much more like a fully-formed franchise rather than a labor of love from a group of eager programmers. The graphics are much more colorful and cartoony, the gameplay is MUCH more fluid and MUCH less aggravating, and there is actual background music that’s catchy and makes the experience more enjoyable. And you can't forget Dopefish, we will never forget Dopefish.

Commander Keen in The Armageddon Machine:
A lot like Secret of the Oracle, except new levels, music, easter eggs, and sadly leaves on a big cliffhanger, and I only mention this because the sixth title is not included leaving you to find it yourself. Still a lot of fun and pretty enjoyable. The only nitpick I really have is how you actually beat the game, as it is very confusing and very hard to actually figure out how to blow the last fuse. Otherwise, a solid Keen title.

Some people complain on how "You're paying for an emulator!" or "It's missing two episodes!” I really don't. This is the bulk of a classic series, and you're paying how much? Five dollars? And you'll probably wait for a sale anyway, won't you. You should be grateful it's even on Steam for legitimate purchase. Also, the games run almost flawlessly in DOSBox for me at least, unlike many other DOS games released on Steam packaged with DOSBox...

If you want to explore id's past, want to dive into another retro platformer, or simply just bored, buy the pack now for five bucks. Don't even wait for a sale, it's not really worth waiting for when you could be playing now.

EDIT: If you would like to see a full release of Keen Dreams on Steam (w/ Achievements, Leaderboards, and other Steam features) running natively on Windows and Linux PC's, click here to check out this new source port:
http://store.steampowered.com/app/356200/
I even made the trailer on the Steam page you see there.
Maybe this could prompt id Software to do a similar overhaul with this release.

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)

This is a great platformer that was released a long time ago and re-released on steam.
I owned them back in the days and I played them to death, so I was happy to see them on steam as well.
The only downside : keen 5 and 6 are sadly missing..
BUT it has a pogo stick!
10/10 would pogo again

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.

A 90's classic! Use to play this on Windows 3.1 when I was just a wee lad.

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.
