    Oh my god I played the Commander Keen games when I was very young and I really liked it.
    Maybe this is as good as the originals.

    Well, I DL'd it and added the 3 episodes mentioned in the txt file......mmm......seems.....interesting. Don't really understand what I'm really doing, other than traverse the level, collect whatever may be in it and exit, go to the next one, rinse, repeat. That's all there is to it, right?

    Sound seems to be flaky......comes and goes. Beeps and boops anyway, so I guess that's not such a big deal.

    EDIT: Odd, subsequent boots of the game now say "error in game", It will still load occasionally, but mostly give that error. WTF!?

    OMFG This is the best thing to ever come to a portable system! I always hoped someone would port CloneKeen. To bad it's only the original trilogy, although Keen 2 and 3 are one of the best in the series. This almost makes up for that Ultra-POS GBC Keen game.

    The only one I actually played was 4...I think. The one with the bigger sprites and stuff. Yeah...

    Never did beat that game. Never knew where to go and that stuff.

    Shame my DS is screwed though.

    I'd love to see some new Keen games, the GBC one cannot be the last as it was pretty meh. Now I wonder if anyone would like to do Jill of the Jungle or Jazz Jack Rabbit?

    I love the keen games, I hope this is expanded to include the later keen games (keen 4 - 7). At least I'll be able to play the first 3 games.

    I am glad to see something liek this released, I was hoping it would be done eventually.

    I'm giving this game one final chance. I renamed the folder from Commander Keen to CommanDSKeen and I'm copying the entire card to the hard drive, formatting and copying everything back. If that doesn't work, it gets deleted and I'll wait for a 1.1 version or just forget about it.

    Hmm....maybe it will work in my old R4? Worth a shot I guess.

    i'm kinda confused by the readme... do you need the original to run this or is the homebrew good enough?

    I tried to get it to run but I'm missing the...uh...Whatever file for each game that starts with a C. Like CTRLPNL or something like that.

    Trying to load #2 results in a full system freeze. So....yeah. I dunno.
