Still finding those 2-D platforming games too hard. Lucky for you sorry lot, I've got a few cheats to help you along. In Astal on the Saturn, whenever you find yourself nearing death, simply pause the action and quickly press Down, R, Up, L, X, A, Y, B, Z, C, Right, and Left. This instantly refills your health meter. Not easy enough for you? Very well, then. Instead, pause and punch in Up, Y, Left, A, Down, B, Right, C. Now, your hero is totally invincible and will last the full game without taking a single hit!


All hands on deck! For that cheeky, submarine-themed side-scroller In The Hunt, I've dug up some chunks of info to calm those dangerous seas. First up, if you've used up your final continue, press and hold Triangle and Select, then with both held down hit Start. This awards you five fresh continues, hey! Next, for the impatient type, try out this level skip code. Highlight Start on the title screen, hold Up and Left on the directional pad and press Circle. A stage-select screen will pop up allowing for an instant warp!

Appearances are very important, my dear furtlers. They say it says something about you. Mine tells the world I'm a trendy guy! In games, appearances can make all the difference as well.

When you head over to Versus mode, you'll now see a full roster making an appearance, even enemies you've defeated in the main game!

Press Down five more times when you've uncovered the Music Test to open up a super secret Cheat Mode! With this highlighted, punch in Y, A, Select, A, Down, Left, A, and Down to begin with 50 lives! Get to it, then!

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.
