Welcome to "Tips N' Cheats" now under new management. MY management! That's right, fellow tech heads. It's Nam Rood here, poised and ready to deliver to you some complete solutions to a variety of top games. You'll no doubt be pleased to know that is my section of the web, so you can forget about finding anyone else but me, here. Stuck on level one of the easiest game of the planet, are you? Or maybe you're still pathetically holding on to that NES cart hoping for a clue. Don't despair, that's why I'm here.


Super NES
Killer Instinct
Sega Saturn

The portover of Rare's lovely gore-fest, Killer Instinct, is not without its faults. But, hey, it's good ol' fashioned blood n' guts. Here's a few tricks to change-up the fight. To pull off much easier combo breakers, press Down and Start on the Vs. Screen simultaneously. Or, to unlock Turbo Mode, on the Vs. Screen hold Right and press all three punch buttons at the same time! Speed-hungry daredevils can try Super Turbo by holding Left in this same process.


Y'know, I had a pet bug once. His name was Harold the Flea, and his acrobatic ability was award-winning! Harold's got nothing on the green grasshopper fellow from Bug! on Saturn, though. If you lot love this 3-D game as much as I do, try this cheat for unlimited continues. Complete the first act in full, then when you die and the screen says "Press Start," hold the Right button and hit Start. Then, do it once again. Infinite restarts! Ah, Harold would have loved Bug!

Sega Saturn
Daytona USA
Sega Saturn
Clockwork Knight

So, you've picked up a Saturn but are already bored with its teensy selection of 32-Bit games, are you? No need to fear, furtlers! Try out this handy cheat for Daytona USA to extend the fun a bit more! After you've already won first place in the Beginner, Advanced, and Expert tracks in Saturn Mode, go to the mission select screen and scroll through the cars until you see "Horse". Now you can race a fully-automatic horse on the racetrack, fully equipped!


Those of you who need a touch of help with the 3-D platform game Clockwork Knight, well, first-off that's truly sad. As for these tricks themselves, they will surely help even the sorriest of you lot. On the title screen, press Left, Up, Right, Down, Down, Right, Right, Up, and the R button. This unlocks the nifty stage select menu to skip past whole chunks of the game or even skip to the end. The final stage is called "Last Boss," if that weren't obvious.

Sega Genesis
Virtua Racing
Sega Genesis
Golden Axe II

Hello, slimy furtlers. Here's a backwards cheat for Virtua Racing on the Mega Drive (or, Genesis to you Americans). On the intro screen, hold down A, B, and Up. Then when you press Start, an extra box will appear on the Mode Select screen with the words "Virtua Racing" reversed. Just select that box and - 3, 2, 1 - look at that! You can race around all the tracks backwards, like a whole new game! Talk about a reversal of fortunes!


Who has time for playing through these scroty games, anyway? Now, this is a level skipping cheat for Golden Axe II. When the intro/demo screen is running, hold down A, B, and C. Then, press Start. Next, move down to options and tap B and C. Then, you move down to Exit, and press B four times. Your level number will now appear in the center of the screen and you can choose which ever one you like! Press Start, and away we go!

Sega CD
Shining Force CD
Tempest 2000

I'm not usually one for RPGs. They go by dreadfully slow and leave me dreaming for some fast action. To help fix that mess, here's a tip that boosts the speed of Shining Force on the Mega CD. On the title screen, press Up, Down, Up, Down, B, and then hold Start, A, and C together. Keep the buttons held down until the menu appears. Pick a name, then quickly hold Start, A, and C. That turbo speed should wake up even the sleepiest player.


Ah, the lovely days wasting away in front Tempest. No need for dodgy arcades any longer - at least not if you own a Jaguar. Try this tasty trick on Tempest 2000 to turn the cheat mode on. On the main menu, select 1, 4, 7, and A at the same time. You'll hear a tone sing out if the code was entered properly. Next, press Option and you can skip past the levels! Go ahead and press 6 to enable the warp bonus round! Not bad!
