Trivia

Cut Level

Jaromir Krol:
When, years ago, I analyzed the level access codes created by the game, I found the way they were generated, and wrote a small program to try and create all such valid codes, with maximum ammunition, energy, etc. The program generated the codes, and while checking them in the game, I made an interesting discovery. The last code that the game would accept as valid, number 55, opened a "lost" level (there were 54 listed levels in the game), which was apparently left out, and was possibly meant as the opening of the multiplayer part in the game. The level, named "DIVIDE AND CONQUER", is unfinished and bugged, and apparently cannot be completed. The code to open this abandoned level is: HGKCSLEASDCAAACA.

References

  • The level 'Divide & Conquer' is presumably named after a song by 80s punk band Husker Du.

  • The game features a character called Dr. Dyson, who you find dead with his legs blown off. The narration then notes that Dyson was usually 'legless' (UK slang for being drunk) while he was alive, but is now really legless. This presumably refers to Marcus Dyson, the former Amiga Format editor who had recently joined Team 17.

Tony Senghore, who made the graphics, was only 16 years old when the game was released.
