Cheats are features that make the game easier, which are activated upon pressing the right button. They have been included since the first Chicken Invaders game. Most versions of the games usually remove this feature. It's only available when you get the games from InterAction studios' website.
It's advised to not use them too much unless you're completely stuck, because they take away the challenge and fun the games have. Also, after using them, you won't be allowed to get high scores, Awards, Unlockables, and Keys.
How to Unlock
In the first game, you'll have to unlock the Debug Mode to use cheats by pressing F9 and F10 at the same time. In the later games, you'll have to unlock them through the options menu.
They will be available as soon as you start/continue your mission.
Chicken Invaders (game)
This game has somewhat different cheats than the other games.
There are four cheats:
- F5 - Shows the cheat list
- F6 - Wave skip
- F7 - Extra Missile and Power Level
- F8 - Extra life
