Tips and tricks

Secret Music

After finishing a game, and provided you reach the top scores, you are given the chance to enter your name. Instead of writing your name, try one of the following :

  1. Type the planner name : 'TOMI' (in this case 'TOM' will be displayed and the last letter 'I' acts like the END button) and you will be able to listen to the ending theme which only comes up after winning the final. This means, that if you win the final, you can listen to the winning theme TWICE! :)
  2. Type the programmer name : 'MICH' (here 'MIC' will be displayed and the last letter 'H' acts like the END button) you will be able to listen to some other music which does not exist anywhere else in the game!
