Apple reveals iPod game cheat codes

updated 11:30 am EST, Wed December 6, 2006

iPod game cheat codes

Apple's senior director of iPod marketing Stan Ng has revealed cheat codes for some of the company's new iPod games, saying that "there's a little bit more hidden depth to the games that people haven't discovered yet." Ng disclosed the cheats to iLounge editors for Vortex and Texas Hold 'Em, one of which generates a back picture of an Apple conference room while another portrays an image of Stonehenge. Ng confirmed that an Apple team exists which focuses on games for the iPod, admitting that game developers have approached the company with desire to create more titles for the player, according to Macworld UK.

    In what sense? I can't imagine these are things that Steve Jobs feels he must announce.

    BTW, these don't sound like cheat codes to me, more just an easter egg. Wouldn't a cheat code be something along the lines of giving you more money in poker, or seeing the other players cards or something?

    yeah, just easter eggs, not cheats. (I can't imagine why they're referred to as cheats in the article) Displaying a hidden image in the game doesn't help me win any faster.

    cheats or eggs?

    Is there something IN the pictures that may be a cheat to exploit?

    The last line

    is probably the one to focus on. I would love to see more games available or better yet, a SDK for anyone to make a game.
