Default Commander Keen 4 - Secret of the Oracle

Just seen that so many Commander Keen episodes are trying to be added recently. I knew that I have that game from long ago, so I started to digging into deep territory...

And I found a floppy which contains it. The game is Commander Keen IV: Secret of the Oracle. This one has been one of my oldest games, which I used to play on my old MiniSys 286.

Quote from Wikipedia:
"4. "Secret of the Oracle" (first released as shareware on December 15, 1991)
Keen's newly finished homemade faster-than-light radio picks up a plot by the Shikadi to destroy the galaxy. He rushes to the planet Gnosticus IV to consult the Keepers of the Oracle, but discovers that they have been taken captive. Thus, the gameplay centers on Keen finding and rescuing the eight elders. This episode features huge levels and a wide variety of enemies, such as rocks that only move when your back is turned, and modified game mechanics. The game also features a mini-game called "Paddle War", a remake of the video game Pong, though this version is horizontal instead of vertical."

Is it possible that I upload this platformer game in the name of the dopefish?

Acknowledged. Is it fully up, or do you need a review?

I'm pretty sure it was Commander Keen too, but I only played a demo back in the day.

I'm also positive that it's one of the Commander Keen serie.
