Is there a big collection of Amiga cheat codes?

So part of the joy of magazines was to get cheat codes for games.
There were even books of video game cheats you could get.

Is there any resource out there that tries to collect cheat codes, level codes etc. for Amiga games? I know often specific games list it on some of the game database sites but I was thinking a collected resource, maybe split into level codes and cheats.

If not, is it something that would be of interest down the road or do people prefer their current systems?

I suppose my question is do people prefer using HOL (or other resources, I think Lemon also lists cheats for some games) or would there be interest in a page or database that was specifically just cheats and codes?

Ah, I see. There's the Amiga Future cheat database: https://www.amigafuture.de/app.php/GTT
It's being updated, but it seems to be only available in German.

Neither - I use Google. Why limit yourself when the tools to cast a net very wide have been available for pretty much as long as the web exists.

Finding cheat codes hasn't been a problem for decades. I would urge you to spend your precious time on something that is more than a novelty. Novelty always wears off.

Yeah, I was mostly musing on whether it would be fun to do but it'd be a ton of work and it seems partially duplicated anyways.

What got me thinking about it was looking through an old magazine and remembering that there were always cheats that didn't work or were misprinted because the magazine screwed it up or they missed a step etc. etc.
It was sometimes as much trouble getting a workable cheat as it was just playing the game legit

Of course as you say nowadays, things are just a skynet search away.

Amiga Action 65 cover disk 4 might be of interest if you want to keep it retro.
