Here is where to post about the latest Commander Keen fangame or modification you've finished, a new website you've made, or another Keen-related creation.

Is the music available for download anywhere, or is there a way to extract it from the game files?
Yes.

Anybody know how to get to this switch in the Ancient Ruins?

Just play the level until you reach the exit, then return to this switch. You can reach the switch from the right (where the red balloon is in this screenshot).

Spoiler:
Picking up the cystal shard is what opens the way to the switch. The switch itself opens a gate in the hidden pyramid. If you haven't found the entrance to that pyramid, then flipping the switch is somewhat pointless.

Oh no way! Thanks! That was a tricky one!

But now what to do? I've gone around the map 10 times now and can't see any noticible changes. I think there may be something at the top of the level. If I look up I can just see the bottom of a moving spiked grass block.

Did you read the spoiler in my previous message? The text is tiny, so you'll have to either copy and paste the text into notepad or click the "quote" button and read it that way.

Cryptic clue:
There is more to this level than you might be aware of. But if you've already collected all the items in the level, it will be difficult to break new ground. The items point the way.

Spoiler:
There's a big arrow made out of chocolate bars, between two pillars at the ground level. Use your pogo to break the rock. But beware: there's no turning back!

Such a hidden nugget I'd have never found without help.

This is one of the best games I've ever played! The soundtrack alone... I could bang on at a club and be in heaven!!!

Hey thanks! I think this is one of most flattering comments I've red about the game and its music. You're awesome dude! 👍
