Back from the past! Commander Keen pack for Mac has been added to Porting Kit. Not long ago the game has been added to the GOG.com game database and I was eager to test it and it works pretty well :) So if you want to relive the past, I really can recommend the game :) The pack contains 5 games/episodes to enjoy and you can choose which one (in a menu) if you launch the game port:
- Episode 1: Marooned on Mars (Dec. 14th 1990)
- Episode 2: The Earth Explodes (1991)
- Episode 3: Keen Must Die! (1991)
- Episode 4: Secret of the Oracle (1991)
- Episode 5: The Armageddon Machine (1991)
