When King Konglomerate is sick of ketchup's extreme popularity over mustard, he decides he will stop ketchup's production altogether, and take all the tomatoes from the world and take it over. Spy Fox attempts to stop him with his new M.E.S.S. (no, not mess! M.E.S.S.! As in Multiple Environment Spy Ship! ...Does this sound familiar at all?).

Originally, this game was exclusively part of a compilation called Super Duper Arcade 2, but would eventually be sold standalone. The standalone version is extremely rare, though; it's recommended to go after the compilation instead.

Unused Text

This game, like many Humongous games, has full subtitles that are not accessible normally without adding

TextOn=1

into hegames.ini, or by using ScummVM's UI.

In-House Editor?

The game does include what looks like an editor, but it's not very functional and just seems to do nothing. Access it by typing room 3 in ScummVM's debugger.

Unused Music

A strange unused music file appears at the beginning of the HE4 file. It is identical to "The Napoleon Complex" by Monty, released in 1996 under the album of the same name. It is unknown why this is in the game in the first place.

Special Names

This game includes a cheat that actually enables debugging features on top of allowing you to go to any level. Sign in as ICHEAT to access it. The keys that can be used are as follows:

Key Function

Shift+A Shows the secret Atlantis cut scene
Shift+B Adds 16 mega bombs
Shift+F Adds 200 unknown
Shift+G Jump to any level
