Hmmm...
To do:
Collect all revisions and compare.

When you clear the first nine levels of this top-down shooter, their elements are randomly recombined to make up levels ten to infinity. (It turns out a machine-gun-wielding Anubis isn't that much weirder outside of Egypt than in it.)

Secret Jukebox

On the title screen, hold down the J and B keys simultaneously to access a sound test.

Level Skip

Had it with the current level? Hold down F and U as an unusually satisfying method of skipping to the next one.

Resource Editor Messages

String 60 of STR# 128 asks:

Why are you rummaging through my resource fork anyhow? Did you think I'd put some sort of hidden goodies in here or something?

But don't stop rummaging—the TEXT resource is a letter from programmer Frank Kane.

Well I would've felt bad if I didn't put some sort of easter egg in the resource fork! I mean, even Jason Jones does that. Which reminds me, this game would've been done a WHOLE lot sooner if it wasn't for our nightly network Marathon games...

Since you know how to use ResEdit, you must be somewhat cool, and you're entitled to know one of the cheat keys.

Hell, I don't really expect to keep them a secret. I hope you'll register the game anyhow just to get rid of those annoying guilt screens.

Hold down the "f" and "k" keys together (my initials, real creative, eh?) and you'll be invincible to enemy projectiles. You'll also get full health. Quite useful.

I won't, however, tell you the even better cheat that lets you skip a level. You gotta send me your $15 for that : ) or wait until it pops up on the Cracks & Serial #s list...
