Summary
  • Manuals and equipment that help users cheat at video games are popular because players can win without enduring hours of repetitive play through endless skill levels. Many games developers write short cuts and special tricks into games to help skilled users bypass levels they have already mastered. Marketing departments at games companies often request these special tricks specifically to drum up interest in games. The extreme of games cheating may be purchased from Codemasters, which distributes Game Genie hardware. This small device connects to popular games systems and lets users alter the systems and the games themselves. Baseline Publishing produces a terminate-and-stay-resident program called Axis the Gamecheater that delivers the same results. With a few keystrokes, the $59.95 Gamecheater gives users extra help such as restored life in 'Indiana Jones and the Fate of Atlantis,' a free swing in 'PGA Tour Golf' or a $100,000 bonus in 'A-Train.'
