This game was stuffed away in a cardboard box and found 30 years later in a garage
This game was never completed and/or given a public release.

Test Mode

Use Game Genie code CYLT-B4FN, then enter the password TESTING123 (a password intended for developers' use only, and is normally disabled). The message "TEST MODE ACTIVE" will be displayed, and the game will now automatically complete each level for you.

Cheat Mode

The password ATADNGISED gives you infinite health and access to all the levels. You will also automatically complete the level if you fail the mission or jump into the water.
