Oh, the memories, the nostalgia...

This and the last two Commander Keen games were my entrance into PC gaming. Prio to that, I played Amiga and C64. And this game shows that gameplay conquers all.

I remember playing this game in a computer store 12 years ago. Aaaah, bliss.

Man, totally forgot about this game. Yes, played it back when playing platform games was normal.

Oh yes, the memories...

The EGA graphics and extremely simplistic physics and controls are terribly outdated for a 1991 game (feels like 1988 at best).

Other than that, it feels and plays remarkably like Xargon (same concept, same levels, same (only simpler) controls and color scheme, even same looking guy for pete's sake). Xargon was made by Epic megagames, which I beleive was either merged with or had some relation to Apogee, so this is probably a prequel to Xargon (which, releaed in 1993, had uncomparably better colors, animation, controls etc.

Jill of the Jungle also has similar features. And don't tell me all platformers of this type have the same look and feel, because there ARE archetypes of platformers in late 80's - early 90's, and Xargon is one of them (a different famous archetype, for example, is the one shared by The Jungle Book and The Lion King).

Is there any way of playing this without paying for it?
Every time I run it, it says it's not the full game, and I need to send off for the rest, and I can't play any of it?

I downloaded the Dark Ages game as my old 5 1/4 floppy has no slot in my laptop - imagine that! I went to play the game and it flashed on the screen and then left.
Any suggestions for downloading and playing this game are appreciated. It was one of the first games I bought when I had my first PC.

PS: on the left side it says Newbee spammer - am not a spammer - whatever that is. Just want to play the game on my Tosh laptop.
