Game Review (written by Davido57) Added on: 02/02/2008
When I first played this game on pc a few years ago, I thought to myself what is this game? This game is another chapter in the Commander Keen series involving aliens, survival and the Bacon and Bean Mega-Rocket. This time Keen’s objective is to destroy the main generators on the ship without being killed. Each level is a puzzle, it has enemies and many ways of dying, like falling to an abyss and getting hit. But don’t worry, you can rejuvenate your life.
Despite the fact you can die easily, it’s a very good game to play. The graphics in it are smooth if you have Dos Box to play it on, sound and music is superb with techno jazz in later levels. The controls in the game can be modified to your specifications and needs, but the basic controls are quite easy to catch on. In Keen 5, your only weapon is a stun gun used to knock out enemies that can hurt you or get in your way all the time. Although you have limited shots with it, you can gain more during gameplay, there is a selection of switches that you need to turn on to open doors, access bridges and make

platforms work. You’ll find gems in the game to open certain doors by colour code (it will be fun trying to figure out which doors they are and getting the gems in the first place). The enemies in this game include: robots, shikadi and mines that follow you. Robo Red shoots and asks questions later, Shelly always blows her top and Shikadi Hounds have a bark worse than their bite.
I would definitely recommend this game to the ones who likes the basic 2D Platform games played on a Sunday afternoon, on Holidays and even when you have some free time on your hands. The graphics are a shining example of computer pioneering and for its time.
