Welcome to Prima’s Top 100 Video Game Cheats, Codes and Tips of all time. We’re counting down some of the zaniest and most helpful cheats you can find in your favorite video games. This took a long time, but the results will certainly pay off – especially if you’re stuck in one of these games.
Our countdown continues with numbers 90-81, and we have a few cheats you may remember.
90.) Tomb Raider: Lara Croft Explosion (PlayStation, Saturn, PC)
Sometimes, it appears Lara Croft may literally go to pieces. Thanks to a neat in-game trick, she can! Simply follow these instructions while you’re in the game: “sidestep Left, then Right, then Left, then hold walk and step Forward, then step Backwards. Next, turn Lara around three times in any direction, then jump forward and while in the air press the roll button.” Kaboom!
89.) Toe Jam and Earl: Get the Ship Pieces (Sega Genesis)
Toe Jam and Earl is a lot of fun – especially with a friend – but it can take a while to find all the ship pieces. Fortunately, there’s a skip code that gives you nearly every piece to your space cruiser. Pause the game and press Up, A + B + C, Right + A, Down + B, and Left + C. Now that’s a jammin’ code!
88.) X-Men 2: Clone Wars: Resetting the Computer (Sega Genesis)
X-Men 2: Clone Wars is a straightforward action game, one that lets you choose from a variety of characters from the comic book series to dish out some damage. However, no matter who your selection is, you’ll run into an interesting situation later on in the game, where you’re asked to reset a computer. None of your controller buttons get the job done, so what can you do? Simple – press reset on the Genesis console itself. Boom, computer reset. Who would’ve thought of such an ingenious function?
87.) Dead Space: Load up on Nodes and Credits (Xbox 360)
Isaac Clarke needs all the help he can get, and thanks to a pair of terrific codes, you can load up on nodes and credits to help you score the better weapons in the game. While in play, press X, Y, Y, Y, X, X, and Y for 10,000 credits, and Y, X, Y, X, X, Y, X, X, Y, X, X, Y for five nodes. You’ll thank us later when you’re shredding some enormous Necromorph to pieces.
86.) Baseball Stars: Obtaining the Max Power Team (NES)
This classic 8-bit baseball game never gets old, but sometimes the opposition can be a little tough. Not to worry, as the Max Power Team is within reach. Go to the Create team option and press down, right, left, down, down, right and up. You’ll see a message saying “WHEN ISN’T IT?”, so change it to “WHEN IT IS.” Right after that, you’ll have a league of power players at your command.
85.) Unlock Fantasy Zone in Arnold Palmer’s Tournament Golf (Genesis)
Who knew that you could find shooting joy in a golf game? Apparently, you can unlock the cartoony classic Fantasy Zone in Arnold Palmer’s Tournament Golf. Reach the game over screen and press Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Left, Left, Right and A. It’s a shame more golf games don’t come with hidden goodies like this.
84.) Ratchet and Clank: Up Your Arsenal- Captain Qwark in a Tutu (PlayStation 2)
There’s no bigger galactic hero than Captain Qwark, so seeing him dolled up in a ballerina tutu is a sight to behold. To unlock this cute outfit, complete the Deja Q All Over Again Vid-Comic, then enter Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Circle, Square, Square. He’ll be in his new outfit!.
84.) Panzer Dragoon: Unlimited Continues (Sega Saturn)
The original Panzer Dragoon is a challenging game, but one worth plowing through, if only for the excellent boss battles. If it’s too much to handle, though, you can always use this code for unlimited continues. Go to the title screen and press start, then press Up, X, Right, Y, Down, Z, Left, Y, Up and X. Do this before you select normal game. You should be good to go!
83.) Parappa the Rapper: Voice Changer (PlayStation)
Parappa the Rapper has a great rappin’ voice, but have you ever felt like you wanted to hear him do something different? Now you can. Get a “Cool” rating on the first two stages of the game, then before the next one starts, enter X, X, X, Triangle, Circle, Triangle, Square, Square, Right, Left, Square, X and finish the next level. On level 4, press X, Square, Triangle, Circle and X. His voice will change from there, but it’s up to you to say whether “U rappin’ awful” or not.
82.) Call of Duty: Black Ops- Unlock Dead Ops Arcade (PlayStation 3, Xbox 360)
Yesterday, we told you how you could unlock the Zork text game in Call of Duty: Black Ops. Now we’re back with another goodie, this time the overhead shooter Dead Ops Arcade. To unlock this game, head to the main menu and free yourself from the restraints by tapping the left and right trigger buttons. Go to the computer behind you and type in “DOA.” From there, the Dead Ops arcade game will be available.
81. Turok: Dinosaur Hunter- Unlock Everything (Nintendo 64)
Turok: Dinosaur Hunter was one of the first games to introduce first-person shooting on the Nintendo 64 – but it can be a tough burden to bear without some serious firepower. Fortunately, you can get it with ease. Head to the code entry screen in the main menu and enter: NTHGTHDGDCRTDTRK. Everything will be good to go, including weapon supply and level select. Happy hunting!
