CAPTURE THE FLAG is an awesome game! My favourite Dos one for sure - so much control and fun.

Pretty sure it has to be Prince of Persia. I like it even more now since I found a level editor which using I can create my own levels. :D

Have to say Columbia Data Production's "Space Commanders"

Think Space invaders in EGA and you can move your ship in any direction.

Give me Privateer, Descent and Wing Commander any day of the week.

Though Master of Orion, Civilization and Stunt Island are damn good as well.

Weirdly, I find Keen Dreams worst of all Keen games. It doesn't even have any music in it! And it is lacking some movements that were in 4-6.

Yes, I'm going to have to agree with you. I've just found the rest to be quite more enjoyable than Dreams. However, it's still worth a look-through if you're bored or whatever, but probably wouldn't buy it (but downloading, on the other hand...).

Well, I believe it was a problem with fitting the game on floppies if it had music... so they decided to scrap the music and save money on another floppy(or something like that)

Exactly, but if thou consider that it was made before 4th, thou understand, but leavin' the pogo stick out is a crime.

It didn't fit onto 360 kB one. (Softdisk's order) The song 's played in 4, though.

In my oppinion keen dreams is my favourite keen game and sure their is no pogo stick but keen/billy blaze does not need it. Keen dreams may not have the music or the pogo stick but the keen games do not need them and keen dreams has much funner gameplay than the other keen games.

Nonsense. It's not about the size of the jump, it's how you use it.


Eh.
