Bonus modes and cheats unveiled:

Every so often a developer goes overboard with its cheats,

providing a stunning array of special modes, gameplay cheats

and, best of all,pointless but obviously painstaking bizarre

laffs. Normally, it's Japanese companies that excel here, but

Psygnosis, and well-named F1developers Bizarre Creations have

proved themselves more than a match with these inspired extras.

To activate them simply enter the codesbelow as your driver's

name. Best of all, you can edit any number ofdrivers'names, and

the game remembers them, meaning you can enter allthe cheats,

save them to a memory card and access them any time you like.

To delete characters from the drivers'names, select the last

one andmove to between Z and A, when it disappears. VIRTUALLY VIRTUALVirtual reality style graphics. For that VR

racing experience. Strangely,taking the textures off does

nothing for the game's pop-up. SWAP SHOPBackground music and new sound effects. What you actually

get is somefaint drum'n'bass and bizarre piano and synth tinklings

in place ofthe normal collision noises. Odd. LITTLE WEELZ Over-inflated tyres, and not slightly overinflated either. From thelower views they actually obscure the drivers view. Silly. PI MAN Wipeout mode. This is one of our favourites. Takes the wheels off yourcar, kills the engine noise, leaves a glowing blue exhaust trail andbanks your car through corners. ZOOM LENSE Helicopter viewpoint, ideal for a realistic Micro Machines experience,although awful to drive with as you can't see the corners coming.Also causes weird 70's Top of The Pops trail effects on the surroundingscenery. BOX CHATTER Murray and Martin sprite commentators. Another favourite. Two Bert andErnie cartoon heads sit on the info bar and lip synch to the commentary. BILLY BONUS Four extra tracks, Yet another favourite and perhaps the most outrightuseful of the lot, this gives you four extra tracks, Sunob, Edialeda,Adia and, best of all, Sixties. The latter is amongst the best modeson its own. Viewed in crackly black and white, complete with lines onthe 'celluloid', it features a full line-up of those bath tub motorsStirling Moss used to drive. CATS DOGS Rains frogs instead of water, Just plain odd. OEAN ALESI Round 16 in Championship. Takes you straight to Suzuka. TOO EASY Grants first place on all tracks in arcade mode allowing access to anextra track. A cheat's cheat, this one.
