Get old school with Keen Dreams

You may or may not remember the side-scrolling platformer Commander Keen from the early 90's, but I do. I can't say I ever played it that much beyond a shareware demo, but it was colorful and interesting. Recently, an updated version of Keen Dreams was released on Steam for Mac. Check it out for some old-school platforming action.


"Billy Blaze, eight-year old genius, has just returned home after saving Earth from the Vorticons only to be confronted with a dinner made up of broccoli, Brussels sprouts and mashed potato. Having chosen to eat ice-cream instead, he finds himself besieged that night by horrible dreams full of living vegetables. The evil King Boobus Tuber has been trapping kids in the nightmarish land of Tuberia, where Tater Troopers patrol and Tomateeth are on the prowl. Trapped in his pijamas — with neither his Vorticon hyperpistol nor trusty pogo-stick for company — Commander Keen must destroy the Dream Machine and return the "sweet" to "sweet dreams". 

Keen Dreams is available on Steam for $4.99.
