Ctrl+Esc All items
- Daniel - 20/07/2022 16:32This version of the game is a broken mess
Your gun starts off silenced, collecting the silencer makes it un-silenced.
Terrible hitboxes, losing half your life in one hit and poorly chosen new spawn points mean that you have to use the invincibility cheat to get past the first four screens. Ctrl + F1 to turn on, have to quit and reload to turn off.
Some essential codec messages won't work unless you save the game, quit and come back in. Ctrl+S to save.
You need the Level 8 Card to get into the room where the Level 8 card is, meaning the game is furtherly unfinishable unless you use the cheat to give you all items with Ctrl+Esc. I don't think this game was tested at all beyond the guy who ported it and he just forgot he did that.

Say something about Metal Gear! Did you play it? Did you like it or hate it? Do you have trouble running this game? Don't be afraid to ask for help (please, read the guide first).
