Mort the Chicken is a game where you navigate several levels, rescuing chicks and then depositing them at the start. When you deposit all the chicks in a level, you win and go on to the next one. So, it's basically a revamped Sonic 3D Blast.

Debug Mode

To do:

In the Options Menu, select Cheat Screen and enter the code "DBGON". Then, during gameplay, pause the game and press Select. A debug menu will appear. You can scroll through numerous options and change their values, like gravity, powerup length, and invulnerability. There is also a sound test: changing the value of "PLAY SOUND" will cause a sound effect to play.

Unused Languages

In the /LANGUAGES folder, there are four .txt files: DEUTCH.TXT, ENGLISH.TXT, ESPANOL.TXT, and FRANCE.TXT. However, the only file that actually has any content is ENGLISH.TXT, which contains the game's script, and there is no language selection in either version of the game, rendering the three other files pointless.


/OVERLAY/MOVIE.BIN has several error messages:
