Gods Alchemy Edition?

Flicking through an old issue of Zero magazine, I saw a tip printed in the tips section saying that if you have a very rare "Alchemy" edition of the Amiga game you could get infinite lives by entering "sorcery" as a password.

I thought this was strange as I've never heard of an Alchemy edition, whatever that is. But what made me think maybe there's something to it, is that I remember reading the same cheat code in another magazine back in the day, that didn't mention it only worked on a specific version. I tried it several times on my own original copy of Gods and it never worked.

It's on issue 34, p 47 if anyone wants to look for themselves.

I remember reading the sorcery cheat, but I've never heard of the 'Alchemy Edition'. It would be interesting if there were something to it.

Nothing about an "Alchemy Edition" version on HOL or the SPS website:

Code:
2877   Gods      2      OCS   EU    Retail: v1.00, alt1
0666   Gods      2      OCS   EU    Retail: v1.00

It sounds more like a particular crack, rather than a special edition!

Magazine rack has page 5 and then goes to page 61?

It may be an April fool's cheat joke, like the one that bamboozled me the ol' LORD LIBRASULUS SMITHES THEE DOWN chest for Chaos Strikes Back. Lol

An April fools joke seems unlikely considering it's in the August issue.

Still, it peeks the curiosity so thanks to whomever wrote that
