Cheats For Shadow Of The Beast
1ImmortalityHere is a great trick that will keep you alive thoughout the whole game (if you are careful). First, play the game normally and then die. When the game asks you to put in you initals, enter ZQX. Then press and hold A, B, C, and START at the same time. Once you start back into the game, you will still lose hit points, but when you reach 0, the counter will reset itself to 11 or 12. A word of warning though: if you fall into a pit, you will be stuck and die and then you will be forced to reset the game. You will not be invincible until you do this method again after that.

Excerpt from Genesis Game Guide by The Scribe

NAME:             Shadow of the Beast series (2 titles)
AUTHOR/VENDOR:    Psygnosis/Electronic Arts
RELEASED:         1991
TYPE:             Platform
LANGUAGE:         English

PREMISE:          The story of a mutant humanoid who embarks on a long and
                  dangerous quest to gain true humanity; and once having
                  found it, must embark upon another quest to save that
                  which he holds most dear.  Ported from the now-legendary
                  series of Amiga arcade games that made Psygnosis a name
                  of whispered reverence among gaming fans.

IMPRESSIONS:      Well do I remember the day when the preview disk for the
                  first game arrived at my local Amiga dealer and blew all
                  of us away with its mind-numbing graphics, spectacular
                  stereo music tracks, and intense gameplay.  It's a real
                  shame that the Genesis music is only an echo of the
                  original (not to mention a good deal of the intermission
                  artwork from the first game and the opening cinema from
                  the second), but the eye-popping graphics and
                  frustratingly hard gameplay are still there.  Handicapped
                  as they are, the Genesis ports are equal or superior to
                  the SNES versions in evey single category.  If you can't
                  find the Amiga originals, then get these!

VARIATIONS:       Shadow of the Beast (1991)
                  Shadow of the Beast 2 (1992)
                  There was a third title in the series, Shadow of the
                    Beast 3, but I have as yet found no evidence of a G/MD
                    port.  Rumors abound that there was one, but conclusive
                    proof remains lacking.

I don't understand!!! Every where I go they talk about getting a free guy from the well. What well? YOU can't even get a coin. I think everyone is confusing this game with the Sega Master System.

This game is a legend on the Amiga, and the Genesis Version is great too.
