Gameplay Tips and Tricks

Embarking on this kiwi-sized epic adventure, players will find these tidbits invaluable:

  1. Mastery of movement is key. Tiki's journey is not just horizontal; vertical exploration can uncover new paths and secrets.
  2. Conserve your lives. The game's difficulty ramps up with each level, making conservation of lives and learning enemy patterns crucial for progress.
  3. Experiment with weapons. Each weapon has strengths and weaknesses depending on the situation and enemy type. Finding the right tool for the job is part of the fun.
  4. Keep an eye out for secret rooms and items. The New Zealand Story's levels are filled with hidden areas that can provide essential boosts and bonuses.

Infinite Lives + Level Skipping

Hold down all of the keys that make up the phrase "TRY CHEATING" (including the space bar - and with the T held down only once, of course). When performed correctly, the border should turn grey, indicating that you now have inifinite lives and the ability to skip levels (except guardian levels) by holding down CTRL and the LEFT ARROW key.

Cartridge Cheat Code

Infinite lives may also be gained through freezing the game with an Action Replay (or similar) cartridge before entering POKE 3215,173. Returning to the game is as simple as entering SYS 2306.

Boss Tip: Defeating Seal

When fighting the last end-of-level baddie, wait until he stops firing, then pass through him so that you are standing behind him. From there, shoot the balloon on his head multiple times to dispatch of him quickly.
