Cheat Codes

Cheat codes are entered and activated by navigating to the Cheats tab of the Options menu in the pause screen. To activate a cheat, toggle it to "On" in the Cheats menu - Be aware, you'll no longer be able to unlock achievements until you restart a cheat-free play session from the main menu.
