A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol
|A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol|
Also known as: Desert Fighter (EU), Desert Fighter: Suna no Arashi Sakusen (JP)
An isometric building bombing game with planes flown by venomous Egyptian cobras. Or people. Can't remember, really.
Is there a more legit way (aside from the debug menu) to access these? Cheat code, maybe?
Using the PAR code 7E00A204 adds an unused "Mania" difficulty and "Cockpit C" control scheme to the game setup screen. The Cockpit C scheme is called "Heli" by the debug menu.
