Brief Game Reviews: Commander Keen 5: The Armageddon Machine

There are a lot of good things to say about this game. In some ways, it’s better than Sonic… or even Mario. The levels are more puzzle-like. The music is fantastic. The graphics are top-notch for their day. I’m definitely biased, because the game that came after this was one of the earliest games I ever owned. But this is a great 2D platformer. You can pick up the first five for cheap on Steam. I played with a USB SNES-style controller, which made for a better experience than keyboard would have.
5/5
