    So I just happened to think of Commander Keen... does anyone remember that game/series?

    Does anyone know if it would be at all possible to port that game over? Being as old as it is; I don't see that there would be a lot of contols needed. There were a total of 6 titles for the game

    Here is the history of how it came to be, etc: http://www.3drealms.com/keenhistory/

    What does everyone think?

    I would really love to see Commander Keen on the ipod touch. What would be better than just Keen though is a DOS emulator, that way a ton of old favourites such as Duke Nukem, Crystal Caves, Jill of the jungle, GTA 1 ect could be played. Please someone port DOSBox to ipod/iphone. Here's the source code If someone makes this I will donate for sure.

    iPhone port of Commander Genius

    Hey, just stumbled upon this thread.

    I just finished my first version of an iPhone/iPod port of Commander Keen (or more exact of the Commander Genius clone, afaik the most complete CK clone).

    Commander Genius (earlier "CloneKeenPlus") has full support for Commander Keen 1-3 and many mods of it. It even have some additional features like 2-player-support (didn't really tried that one myself, so cannot say much about it). We are also working on support of CK4-6, so stay tuned!

    CG is open source, the main branch is in the official SourceForge SVN repo. I created also a Git repo on GitHub and you can access my iPhone branch there if you are interested:
    http://github.com/albertz/commandergenius/tree/iphone

    You can also download the binary itself as a ZIP-file:
    http://sourceforge.net/projects/clonekeenplus/files/

    This one comes with the shareware episode 1. For episode 2 and 3, buy them from 3D Realms.

    This ZIP-file needs a jailbreaked iPhone/iPod though and only works for iPhoneOS >=2.2.1. It works smooth on my 3GS (whereby could still be better) but don't know how it works on the older systems.
