Infinite Interactive released a cheat code yesterday to give players a little help in the PSP and DS versions of Puzzle Quest
. The code is a long sequence of buttons pressed quickly or held for half a second. Once entered, a menu will appear that will allow you to turn off AI cheating, play the secret cow level, activate all spells, and turn on nude hero sprites (!).
Now this is what an April Fools
prank should be like. No outlandish promises for games we know will never exist, no half-baked Photoshopped images, and for the love of grilled cheese sandwiches, no ridiculous claims of Sony buying Nintendo. Just a good old fashioned joke that you believe at first but quickly realize you've been hoodwinked. Furthering the prankocity of the cheat, the sequence spells "I AM A NOOB" in Morse code!
We can't help but wonder how many Puzzle Quest
fans dove for their system to try it out. You know, to turn off AI cheating. Not that nude hero thing.
