"It's time... FOR CHEATS!"

Reviewed By: RealGaea on 30 Jun 2017

This restoration makes the game more enjoyable. If by “enjoyable” means being killed more times than Kenny McCormick.

Give this a (spread) shot.

NOTE: Please, do the Patch also for the Super Probotector version. Some of us are very fond of the kickass robots. The code was restored in the Mega Drive/Genesis version, so… why not here too?
