  cheating bastards: passwords


Word on the street has it that the second (Romulous) and third (Pacifica) planets in the German Nectaris are tough as nails.  Folks have had a tough time merely surviving the introductory levels, in fact.  So... here are the passwords for all 98 levels in the game.  These passwords have NOT been verified, so please contact me with any problems or corrections you find.  Scroll to the bottom of this page for some interesting trivia on the password system used in this game.

TRIVIA :  In keeping with tradition, the original 32 maps of the 1989 Nectaris campaign is included on this release (but for some inexplicable reason, it is referred to as "Triton").  Interestingly, however, the German developers BROKE with tradition when they devised the passwords for this release.  Normally, the passwords for the second-half of the campaign are the same as the first-half, but in reverse (i.e. if a map is named "REVOLT", then its counterpart will be "TLOVER").  Instead, the German developers used the map names from Military Madness  (1989, TurboGrafx-16, North America).
When Nectaris was released in North America for the TG-16 under the title "Military Madness", 18 passwords were altered from the original PC-Engine version. The passwords for the entire advanced campaign (maps 17-32) were changed for the TG-16 title. I think the latter was a good idea, since it made it more difficult to advance by cheating (i.e. simply reversing the map names from the first campaign).  In addition, Map 9 changed from "GALOIS" to "GALIOS" (to confuse matters, the German version keeps the original "GALOIS") and map 14 "APPOLO" was corrected to "APOLLO" (here, the German version uses "APOLLO").
