Cheat Codes

Customer Cheat

Pressing [backspace] [pgdn] at the same time will give you all keys and full gun power. This can be used in either the shareware or registered version of the game.

Debug Mode

To activate, start up the game with "asp" as a command line parameter. (It must be in lower case.) Once activated, you can press the following key combinations inside the game. All keys in each combination must be pressed simultaneously.

[G] [O] [D] - Full health & all items
[G] [O] [W] - Level Warp. Sort of. This isn't a real warp; it will just take you to the next level. You need to keep on using it to progress through the levels.
