If anyone is struggling to source toilet roll supplies, there are tonnes of them in Zool 2. Memetastic baby! :D

I dunno. If you remove a hidden surface (even if it's done precisely), how would anyone know anything had changed? It sounds like a running gag from Catch-22 to me. :|

Bio Challenge cheat

The warp to boss cheat for this doesn't work in a few different releases I tried so I suspect it refers to the ST original. Escape doesn't pause the game for a start.

Ah yes, that's definitely the same instrumental, and it's very close to the original so you'd expect that to be blocked too if my theory was right. Dunno then, just clutching at straws.
