Passwords

  • Maxed Passwords

    These passwords are so named because they will give all items, a White Crystal, 8 Laurels, 8 Garlic, 6 Experience, a Flame Whip, and - so as to make the endings more available - a clock set at zero days. These will make you start the game anew under these conditions; two passwords are listed as well because the password system is different between the releases.
