Cheat Codes?

OK, if you want to cheat here is how to do it.

On the main screen – the one that plays the music all you have to do is hold down the keys “SCATZ” simultaneously. You’ll get a secret message saying you have found the cheat.

You get infinite energy so you’ll never die.

SCATZ is Damian’s nickname, and he used it as a cheat code for a few of his games. I wonder which ones? Hmmm? He won’t say – but we know it is used in a certain fighting game.
