The cheats here are a bit more complicated than in other games. There is a
two step procedure to active the cheat mode. (This cheat mode only works in the registered
version. It does nothing in the shareware version.)
Type [C] [H] [E] [A] [T] at the Main Title Screen. All keys
need to be pressed one at a time. When you get it, you'll see the message that says
"Cheat Active" (it really isn't yet).
During the game, hold down the [backspace] key, and then press
the [H] & [S] keys at the same time. When you are successful, you'll see a message
that says "Cheat Mode On" (it is now). You can hit these three keys again to
turn the cheat mode off.
Once activated, you can press these keys to activate various options. Please note
that you must hold down the [tab] key first before pressing the others, or it won't work.
[tab] [O] - Fire Options
[tab] [R] - Rapid Fire
[tab] [S] - Shield Options
Cheat keys are not officially supported by Apogee. If you use
the debug keys, Apogee cannot provide any support, since this alters game performance to a
state where our standard support comments and issues might not apply. In short, using
cheat keys can cause the game to malfunction or crash. Use at your own risk!
"Customer Cheat" means it's the cheat given out with
the registered version of the software.
"Debug Mode" means it's an unsupported cheat mode.
"Tech Parameter" means it's a code that does
something, but really isn't a cheat, it's more or less there to help Apogee Customer
"Misc Command Line Parameter" is the same type of
thing as Tech Parameter.
