WORDS FROM THE AUTHORS

I took a look at a bug with patch 1.3 that prevented projectiles from bouncing
on all the platforms as they should. That was a quick fix!

But then I couldn't resist adding a ton of trainers and CD32 control support.
That took a bit longer. :-)

I had quite a bit of fun rooting through the various bits of game code to see
what did what. As a fun bonus, toggling the trainers in game has added sound!

The game has a built in cheat, that seems to be misdocumented slightly.
Pause the game (F1), type the word 'RHIANNON' (yay Fleetwood Mac!),
then immediately press any of the following:
- F5: Triggers game over (same as Escape in game, so kinda pointless)
- F6: Opens the shop
- F7: Restarts the current world (similar to Backspace in game)
- F8: Tops up cash, magic, bombs, keys, vitality
- F9: Makes the player invulnerable
You can ALSO use the left/right joypad controls to select a level, then hit
fire to jump to it.

Although the game's own cheat is kind of pointless now with this patch. ;-)

Hope you enjoy the smorgasbord of new features added to the game!
