Did you know that the No Clip cheat was first introduced in Commander Keen? I didn't knew. Here's an interesting video talking about no clipping:

Oh wow, I didn't know the No-Clipping cheat was introduced in Commander Keen either! I also didn't know that the A+2+Enter debug activation also had an actual meaning. :-O

as a kid I somehow figured out that Vorticons no-clipping cheat by chance.
but I didn't know that the no clipping thing was first introduced in Commander Keen. :garg
