Commander Keen is a platform game designed from the ground up for mobile devices. The title was created by the ZeniMax Online Studios team and represents the brand that was born under the wings of id Software in 1990.
In Commander Keen, players take control of twin geniuses named Billy and Billie. The protagonists must face up to the sinister aliens threatening the whole of humanity and save Admiral Keen. Fortunately, they are not defenceless, because they have a number of inventions of their authorship on their hands, which allow them to deal with even the biggest problems.
In Commander Keen, the action is shown on the side. A number of levels are waiting to be completed here, dotted with platforms (on which we move, showing the heroes the path to follow) and various obstacles. On each of them, the protagonists have a specific task to perform, which, however, is disturbed by their opponents.
We eliminate enemies by using the above mentioned inventions put together by heroes from what they can find. In addition to weapons, drones for raids or even tools for freezing enemies, over time we gain gadgets that can also be used for other purposes. For example, jet gloves or teleporters that allow you to get into high or inaccessible places.
The pillar of Commander Keen is a feature campaign. In addition, however, the title has a competitive multiplayer mode, in which the heroes fight duels with each other.
Commander Keen has two-dimensional graphics in a lightweight style that evokes associations with animated series. This impression is intensified by the soundtrack accompanying the game.
