I gave it a quick try and I thought: decent, has potential, movement is perhaps a bit slow. When moving forward it feels as if you're pushing against something (not sure if I'm describing it well, but I think it might be that the speed of horizontal movement doesn't quite feel like it fits with the speed of jumping and pogo-ing).

Controls aren't quite intuitive - since A jumps and such, I'd expect a key near it to fire, but the spacebar fires. It might make more sense and be better for finger positioning on the keyboard if either firing was done with a key near A (D for example, or F) or jump and pogo were on Ctrl and Alt or similar. I found it odd that there's a key to activate the pogo and a different key to deactivate it, rather than the same key toggling it depending on whether you currently have it active or not.

Keen's sprite is nice, has some charm. I hope that this post doesn't come off as overly critical, rather I mean to offer what could be some possible improvements since I think this has potential and it'd be cool to see it go further.

Sorry if i answered late. (Very late) but i have been working on this game. Thanks for your post. I already have completed 80% of mars. When i complete it i will upload first full update of the game. I already found how to solve to be the same key that activates/deactivates the pogo. Hope you like the full game. :D

PD: each update will include a new keen world (such as 1.0 = mars; 1.1 = vorticon mothership...)

sorry if commander keen travels should not be done in that 3-6 days, but is almost complete, only need finish emerald city, another polar level, fix some dumb bugs, and release it.

hope you like it. :D
