Collecting different variants, special editions and rereleases of classic Wing Commander games is a common pastime for Wingnuts, but really hardcore fans are also hunting down obscure third party unlicensed works. LOAF recently found this one, Axis the Gamecheater, which supposedly grants 'super powers' to both Wing Commander and Ultima VI. Without the internet, some of the series' built in cheats weren't as readily known, so there was a market for products like this back in the day. Actual effectiveness was pretty hit & miss...
LOAF> Behold: AXIS the GAMECHEATER! He has a code wheel built in to his box that tells us... nothing?
