            "7SLURP"__________________________Start on level 5
            "PLUNGER"_________________________Start on level 6

  The screen will flash red if you typed the code properly. These
  codes assume a USA/UK keymap.

I have allowed the high scores to be saved if you use one of the above
level codes, but if you use any of the other cheats, high scores will not
be saved.

Ronny Illgen kindly supplied his Amiga Fun coverdisk version but either the
disk images have been damaged or whoever compiled it has butchered the
game.  I suspect the later as there are a lot of corrupted files and levels
2, 3 and 4 will not decompress correctly.  It is also unusual that one of
the best crackers Mok could not compress the game down to 2 disks yet it
was done for the Amiga Fun release - another sure sign that it was never
completely working.  It looks to me like somebody has taken the Mok/Classic
crack as a base, repacked all files with the MASM cruncher and rejigged the
contents of the disks.  Needless to say, the coverdisk doesn't work on my
A1200 or A500 when booted from floppy and therefore I will not waste time
trying to fix the game when the coverdisk itself appears to have been
broken.  If you have the Amiga Fun version, use the cheat listed above to
start on level 2, 3 or 4 and if it works, please contact me and I will
re-enable support for that version.

This install was quite hard work as the game has some really stupid access

You can download the full game from the great site Back to the Roots at

A big thank you to Frank for the superb icons!  If you have a close look
you will see that each of them has a different image!  I have also included
the original 4 colour icon which is installed by the script on disk 2 of
the AGA version.  Frank would not make icons this bad so that one is not
his, OK! :)

Greetings to Mad-Matt, Chris, Ronny, Carlo, Frank, Wepl, Jean-Fran├žois Fabre, all
Action members, my testing crew and the entire WHDLoad team!
