The Mega Drive Waterworld, like its releases on other systems, is a rather mediocre game. Unlike those other versions, this one was axed for unknown reasons.
Use Game Genie code CYLT-B4FN, then enter the password TESTING123 (a password intended for developers' use only, and is normally disabled). The message "TEST MODE ACTIVE" will be displayed, and the game will now automatically complete each level for you.
The password ATADNGISED gives you infinite health and access to all the levels. You will also automatically complete the level if you fail the mission or jump into the water.
Incidentally, this password is "Data" and "Design" spelled backwards; DDI was an uncredited "ghost developer" on this game, according to pseudonymous developer Jason Stoat, although their logo does appear at the beginning of the game.
A simple test string is present at 0x1D18.
