'Help' key in Amiga games

Which games do use 'Help' key for anything? From my memory I recall Rodland, that uses it only for cheat mode. Any others?

Nope, Turrican II uses space for music menu.

And I meant original features, not those added by crackers. Sorry for misleading.

Really? It was my small discovery when I was young kid but memory may be fading.

Pretty sure that in P.P. Hammer you can use the Help key to kill your character in the case you get stuck. Which is quite fitting as it will help you a lot in the later levels

Or at least I remember so

Formula One Grand Prix (Microprose) uses Help for Chase view.

If I remember correctly you use the help key to tap out morse code "SOS" (dot dot dot, dash dash dash, dot dot dot) to get infinite lives in Weird Dreams.

Yup you're correct, that's the cheat mode for Weird Dreams. You had to stand halfway through the left mirror as well as I recall.

The Dungeon Master series use it to turn to the right (del turns to the left) which is way more practical than using the mouse to click on the big arrows on screen.

I seem to recall that Eye of the Beholder did not use it which annoyed me to high Hell given that it obviously was SSI's reply to DM and that they managed to copy everything except the fantastic user interface of DM.

BlackCrypt however also does use the Help key in the same way as DM I recall but it's been a long time since I last played it so I am not entirely sure either.

Final Fight: Cheat mode

Wait until the man asks Mike Hagar to turn on the television during the introduction sequence. Then, press [Help] five times to enable cheat mode and invincibility to punches and kicks. Press one of the following keys to activate the corresponding cheat function.

I think you can get there with pretty much any key? At least I've used function keys for it

Birds of Prey used it a lot for the rudder control - Delete and Help were rudder left and rudder right respectively.

I remember a Cheat Function in ELITE. You had to answer "SARA" to the novella protection to enable it. It was a kind of HEX-editor.

Any example? Gunship 2000 doesn't use, the same F-15, F-18. Maybe Falcon does?
