But there is another option too - suicide of Commander Keen.

One more option: not to play the levels, which aren't required to complete the game. :crazy

The reason the goplat is needed is because it will move Keen across the bottom, which is covered with glowing orbs and leads to switches that extend the bridges over them. Keen can jump through into that secret passage, but it is impossible to do so without falling on the orbs and dying. Even in god mode you will still die. The clip and jump cheats are the only ones that would work. If you choose not to cheat it is best to just die and start the level over. Just because the level is optional does not mean you have to skip it.

"Die and start over" - yes - that's the only solution without cheating.

Skipping the level is not "necessary", but "possible" for some levels. Not in Commander Keen 5 (all levels are necessary, with the only exception - secret level. A bug in Brownian Motion allows the player to skip six levels, though)

i guess this is a sign of that whole thing about Keen6 being rushed.
