Commander Keen 5

Post by Check-Mate »

I've look looked about a million times to try and find this game on here (seeing as though you have other commander keen games) It's sidescrolling. I'm not sure if it's freeware or not. I had it on a floppy, but it wasn't working, I tried to fix it, but I made matters worse....so I want to find it and beat it, because I've beaten all the others....Please tell me where I can find one....(again, I don't know if it's freeware or shareware or not) Please and thanks! :D
P.S. Why is there a Chicken emicon? :cuccoan: :thumbsup:

yeah, Apogee only wanted 1, 4, and Dreams to be shareware so that they could get some dough.....

However, I will PM you........uh......something ;)

EDIT: Nevermind. That "something" took the uh, other something down....

Yes, it is abandonware. All the old Sierra games are "abandonware", meaning that Sierra no longer sells them. Since abware is not allowed here (I think), I'll PM you a link of where to find it, along with all those other old Sierra games.

I think most games like that that are a 2nd or third episode are abandonware. 5 is a second episode in Goodbye Galaxy. There was going to be a 7, 8 and maybe 9 called The Universe Explodes, but they never made it. :cry:

Keen 1,4, and "keen dreams" are shareware. Keen 2,3, and 5 are still sold at www.3drealms.com. keen 6 is the only keen game that is abandonware. 7,8, and 9 were going to be called "The Universe is Toast". Any questions about Commander Keen can likely be answered at http://publicckforum.cjb.net/
