Christmas

If you play the game during the Christmas period (September to early January) the game gets a Christmas theme, with snowflakes falling on the main menu and several new backgrounds.

References

  • The cheat codes have a few references: apogee (16 bit colour mode) and doom (harder enemies). The Apogee code is not available in version 1.3.
  • One of the game's weapons is the LFG-2000, which is obviously a spoof of DOOM's BFG-9000 weapon.
