Columns Cheats

Glitches

  • Get an extra magic jewel

    Columns Extra Magic Jewels
    There is a way to trick the game into giving you a second magic jewel. To do this you must set up the screen in a certain way. Have one row of the normal jewels stacked up almost to the top of the playfield. There must be vertical space for only two of the three jewels in the next block to come on the screen. Watch the "Next Block" preview box. When you see that the magic jewel block is next, get ready to quickly move it on top of your prepared stack. After the magic jewel eliminates the 'touching' color jewels, all of the remaining jewels will drop down as will the one magic jewel that was off the screen. This magic jewel will drop down and eliminate another group of colored jewels.

Codes

  • Get 27 lives

    Start arcade mode. When you get to the character select screen, hold down+left and hit A+C+Start. Nothing really confirms the code except until you get game over. If you input it correctly, the next time you get Game Over, it should say you have 9 credits instead of 3.

Phantasy Star II Cheats

Glitches

  • Equip armor glitch

    It is possible to have armor equipped even if it is not in your possession...first make sure you have at least two pieces of armor in a characters possession..

    1. Go to the equip screen and highlight the armor you want to keep equipped.

    2. This is the tricky part...equip/unequip the armor...when it says ".....takes armor" press a confirm button and then QUICKLY press down to the next armor below it and equip/unequip that armor. You need to do it
    fast enough so that you see only a little change in the attack,defense, and/or agility from changing equipment.

    3. You'll know if the glitch worked because you won't be able to unequip the first piece of armor. Now you can give the armor to another character! Who says you can't have powerful equipment like the NEIMET on just one character?

    To cancel the glitch, simply equip another piece of armor over the affected armor slot.

    It may take a few tries to get the glitch working because the equipping/unequipping must be done very quickly.

  • No random encounters

    When examining the nearby area with the A (Talk, Examine) button, the next step you take is guaranteed not to take you into a battle. Keep hitting the A button (Talk, Examine) while you walk, so that after every step it will say ''There seems to be nothing unusual here.'' No random encounters will happen, but it will take quite a while to maneuver through dungeons this way.

    Contributed By: H Hog.

Secrets

  • Become invisible

    In battle, get all of your team members KO-ed except for Nei. Then get Nei to cast Nasak and she should KO herself. Then, your characters will turn invisible and you can walk around dungeons freely.

  • Slow motion play

    When paused, press and hold B and play as normal. The game should play very slow.

  • Switch game music

    This trick allows you to have different music play in other areas, using the slow motion code. First, you go to the area that has the music you want, like the weapons shop for instance. Next, press start and hold B. The game will move in slow motion with no sound, so you can still move. Now, then go to another place and let go of B, then press Start. The music from the place where you first pressed B and Start now plays in this area! Cool glitch!

Sega Swirl Cheats

Secrets

  • Easy way to get big points

    **Note: This cheat only seems to work on the older versions of Sega Swirl. It works on the July 2000 and older demo disk.**

    Okay, here is very easy way to get some big points. First, start a new practice round. Clear the screen of all the colored swirls except for one color(take green for example). You should have a really big combo of green swirls. Click to delete them from the screen and while they are in the middle of the firecracker animation hit start and restart the level. You should now have the points from the big, green combo but with a full screen of new swirls. A few thousand free points righ there. Then just play as you reguarly would.

  • PC Version of Sega Swirl

    To get this code I used the Sega Swirl that comes with the ''Sega Dreamcast Web Browser 2.0'' GD-ROM. I'm not sure if this code works with the other versions, like the Issue 5 Dreamcast Magazine Demo Disk that includes this game. Anyway, insert the GD-ROM into your computer and go to ''My Computer'' on the desktop. Open the CD-ROM window. There should be a folder called ''Swirl'', or something similar (it differs with different versions). Run the program '' Swirl[version].exe '' or '' SW_large.exe '' and it should install the PC version of Sega Swirl on your computer. This version isn't as good as the DC one and doesn't include the Split Screen mode of the game, but you can still play every other mode (at least with the version I had).

Glitches

  • Avoid Party Members

    The game forces you to allow Tao, Ken, Lowe, Hans, and Luke to join the party before the first battle of the game. There is a way to avoid getting these characters in your party. To do this, when in town at the opening of the game there is a gate but two guards will stop you if you try to leave. There is a blond man in a purple vest near the gate and if you stand one space above him, you will eventually force him to step in the path of one of the guards. At this time you can run past and exit the gate and the guard will not be able to block you. This will send you to the first battle with only Max, making the game quite difficult. Also, even though you avoid taking these characters in your party, they will still speak during some of the cut scenes.

  • Get Adam without defeating Chaos
