Ha ha great stuff ! Cant beat a bit of retro shooting platforming fun !

This takes me back playing it on some old PC MANY years ago.

The trailer was great, games such as this are still very popular nowadays. Controls on the video look great

I'll be getting this for sure

Yeah, I'm concerned with the controls of this one. Hope it's good. Not sure if this is the one I liked most. I think I liked Duke Nukem Forever, the free- roaming one with the strip clubs and adult language. Want that one!

I hope Duke Nukem Forever doesn't end up being ported on an anniversary

Please devs, understand that side scrollers and platform games NEED a D-pad, not a joystick.

Waiting for: ZOMBOX!!!Forgotten Memories, Diesel Tactics, The Wild.

Actually, the arrow system works pretty well (if not better), too.

I would prefer a d-pad BUT a joystick isnt bad, i use one all the time in Gridlee and its great.

I'm just happy its not 'touch the left side to run left and touch the right to run/jump' etc or tilt ! Just happy to see on screen controls !

I would rather see Commander Keen rerelease on iOS, but unfortunately that probably won't happen ever.

You never know, if this is quite a big hit they may look at other past releases etc.

Its such a shame theres so many great retro stuff out there, wish more companies would release it or as a compilation. Again Lucasarts - Rogue Squadron would work so well on iOS
