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.
The game is now available on TZX file to play.
