Though DOS no longer has a place in today’s operating systems, five out of the seven Commander Keen games (including Secret of the Oracle) can still be enjoyed today through Steam for only five bucks. Regardless of how far gaming has come, I still to this day recommend the Commander Keen series for anyone looking for fun and major nostalgia, not just for Keen fans but more for those who despite not knowing him knew a time when 2D side scrolling adventures were at their best. Here’s to you, Billy Blaze.

Commander Keen 4 je bezesporu klasika. Ono totiž prakticky vše, co firma Apogee vydala, se dříve či později stalo klasikou, ale Keen je... Keen je prostě bomba.

Commander Keen 4 er hva jeg vil kalle et perfekt søndagsspill; avslappet musikk innkappet i en spillopplevelse som er både morsom, frustrerende, og kan nytes i korte drag. «Pong»-spillet bidrar på nostalgien, og selv om det aldri er mulig å vinne det hersjens spillet, hører det med i Keens univers. Husk bare å lagre ofte og Billy, nei jeg mener Keen, vil redde verden før du kan si «Intergalactic supertachyon battleship toaster»!
