I can't even believe it!!!!! I downloaded it already, and was stunned and delighted to find Commander Keen 4 onboard. Thank you thank you thank you for not giving up on getting good DOS games onto iOS.

How is this thread not exploding?!

Ladies and gentleman this is a free collection of classic PC games including many of those Apogee titles that you cut your teeth on! Commander Keen! Duke Nukum [sic]! Prince of Persia!

Now.. these games haven't aged well but the emulator is fantastic. I've gotta say bravo to the effort here

I know!!!! This is essentially iDOS, but a different engine and (I assume) packaged up to meet the App Store guidelines. iDOS generated tons of excitement. I'm sure this will too, to a certain extent, if toucharcade staff does a blog post on it. And I'm pretty sure they will.

works just fine with my iControlPad. It's just that games need separate config: Donkey Kong needs both switches to be "On", while PoP4D only the upper one to work. BTW, the latter registers "up" and "down" in the opposite direction as it should.

Thank you! So the DPad works all right, but joystick up and down is messed up. Will fix it in next update. I really should get myself a controller.
