Cheats, Tricks, Bugs, and Easter Eggs

On the boulder round, you will receive a greater score when you run close to a rolling boulder. Go near the top of the screen, find a boulder that rolls down at the same speed as can run and have it chase you down the screen. You can rack up several thousands points this way, but do not stay on the level too long or the game will release lots more boulders!

Trick - Open the coin door, press and hold down the Select button while turning on the power simply pull out on the coin-door interlock switch. 64 black and white heads of Bob Dobbs will float across the screen.



Designed and programmed by Matt Householder and Chris Krubel with graphics by Jeff Lee and sounds by David Thiel.
