Cheat Codes of Various Effect

(This text was lifted from the developer's website) All cheat codes start with '=' or '4' (if = doesn't work, try 4), and can be typed in anywhere. (Type them slowly if you are having trouble getting them to show up) Many of the cheat codes mark you as having cheated. Your save games will be marked as 'cheated' and you will be will be unable to post to leaderboards or get achievements. If you restart the game and don't load any cheated save games, you will be able to post to leaderboards and get achievements again. There's a hidden cheat code in the last level - watch the waves of flyers, they'll spell out something special..
