Level Select

Type a code between trwarp1 and trwarp9 to jump to another stage within the current episode, or trinext to proceed to the next stage.

Most of the other in-game cheat codes are the same as in the PC version, except that maniacs (for afterburner) has been changed to trimacs.

Developer Hotline

String 2 from STR# 1000 was probably used only in test releases:

Terminal Velocity cannot be run on this Macintosh. Please contact Robert Minnis at 214-221-2664 for assistance.

Minnis was co-author of this port, while the number, with a change of area code, was Terminal Reality's through at least 1999.
