Description of Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine

Fifth game of the Commande Keen series, in this one Keen has to desactivate the Armageddon Machine, as huge Shikadi space station.

As usual with Id Software, the game is very well polished, the gameplay is sweet and the humor is always around the corner.

Lots of resources for the Keen series can be found on Beyond the Pogo.

How can I download this game?

it's extremely ironic to see apogee games are "on sale" after almost 30 years being shareware.

Tortured me with this Keen Games back then. Always thought they are way to difficult, never came past level two on keen5 for example. I downloaded it to look into it just for the lulz and I discover this sob game has a save funtion, wooot?!?!
Now couple of hours later, 6 levels into the game, typing this comment...

cat 2013-01-29 1 point DOS version

Something's wrong with the fires not with space but with ctrl-alt but it's set to space. Does anybody know what I can do about it?

with these games you spoil us

glorialafolle 2012-07-19 0 point DOS version

I really appreciate you posting these games..I've got to tell you that 3drealms still sells Keens 1-3 and 4-5 on their site. I actually just paid $5.99 for this before I knew you had it. I just hope you are careful because I fear they may discover you having this available free and want to shut you down :/
