SummaryOne of my favorite Keens -- it's in space!
The GoodBack in 1990, you didn't see smooth-scrolling EGA graphics unless you were playing Commander Keen. The storyline is great, the enemies are funny yet dangerous, and it's just like playing Super Mario on a PC.
The Bottom LineThe first classic PC smooth side-scroller, the Keen Series paved the way for other developers to see that the PC was a real gaming machine, at last.
This episode of Keen is set on the Vorticon Mothership hovering over the earth, ready to use its Tantalus Rays on all the major cities of the planet unless Keen can disable them in time! If not, The Earth Explodes!
