Commander Keen 1

Filed under: Aeon, Fun & Games — Greg Divis @ 7:27 pm

One of the nice things about a project like Aeon is that it let me use old games I’d played as a kid as milestones. The first graphical game I got working in Aeon was Commander Keen: Invasion of the Vorticons.

Keen 1 Title

The graphics are pretty primitive, and the only sound effects you get are from the PC speaker, but it boasts smooth scrolling large levels and a nice variety of hazards and enemies. For a shareware game released in 1990, it’s really quite impressive, and it was followed by five episodes.

Keen 1

This was one of id Software’s first games, and you can still download the shareware episode from 3D realms.

I’ll be back to that performance series next time I post.
