Hidden within the game is a half finished cheat system. Most of the cheats still work, but some will crash the game. Apply the GameShark code below to enable this system. With the code active, enter New Game and type one of the cheats below as your character name. After you have typed your cheat in, press Z + L buttons to activate. Your text will change red, then press OK to confirm. After you are done inputting the cheats, you must turn the cheat system off with Z + R buttons. Your text will return to white if done correctly.
