Plans for 2023

The coming year is going to bring a lot of changes for me, because I have another child on the way. I’ll be extra busy helping my wife for a good six months or so and I plan on taking it easy as far as expanding this site goes. I will still add new cheats and passwords on a weekly basis, but I am going to take a break from writing big walkthroughs.

That said, I will finish Shadow Hearts along with another guide I have been working on and hopefully get it posted by the end of December.

I’m looking forward to this break, because walkthroughs are really demanding projects and I have written quite a few of them over the years. That said, I’m going to play through a few games I wanted to cover and post their save files. I may also start on the Mega Man series for Game Boy and I will do boss guides for those games since they are less time intensive.

With any luck, I’ll get started on walkthroughs again in June. Feel free to add requests or suggestions for games that could use a brief guide, passwords, or a save file in the comment section.


Temporary Service Interruption 10/24 may be down for a few hours on Monday 10/24 and Tuesday 10/25. The site is moving to a new, faster server and will have some downtime when we change DNS. This should only last a few hours and will likely occur late at night or early in the morning in many time zones, so the disruption will hopefully be minimal. Additionally, there will not be a password or cheat code posted on the week of 10/23/2022 due to the site migration. I apologize for any inconvenience or disappointment this may cause.


Welcome FoxOne!

I’m happy to say this project has a new team member, FoxOne, who also happens to be my daughter. Lately she has helped out a lot with transcribing and testing the many cheats and passwords that are posted on this site every month. While this does not change a lot on the surface, it is a big help to me, since testing all this stuff can be difficult with just one person. Her assistance has also made it possible to post cheats for two games a week instead of just one, so thanks for your help FoxOne!

Service Upgrade and Possible Down Time

We’re upgrading our service to make faster and more secure. These changes should take effect in a day or two. Please be aware that there may be some down time while the upgrade is being implemented, but we’ll bae back within 48 hours. Thanks for your patience!

Added the Sega Game Gear Section

It took longer than expected (I have a cold) but the Game Gear section is live and can be seen under the Games by System heading or via the link below. Right now we only have some passwords for Ax Battler, but I’ll try to get more stuff together for it over course of the next week. Finally, I don’t know much about the game gear and would appreciate any suggestions for games to cover.

Working on a Sega Game Gear Section

Plans to expand RetroMaggedon continue with the addition of a Game Gear section. This will mostly include cheats and passwords at first, though we will add to it in the future. Everything should be ready in a day or two depending on how things go. Our goal is ten games for the section and we should have all of them ready in about a week. The Game Gear section will be the last new section added for a few months or so, though there’s still a lot of ground to cover. Hopefully, we’ll be able to get some Dreamcast stuff together by the end of the year.

I know I say this a lot, but thanks to everyone who has made this site possible. There wouldn’t be a RetroMaggedon if not for the people who visit the site and I’m grateful for all of the support.

The Nintendo 64 Section is Live!

The long overdue N64 section is complete can be found in the Games by System menu on this site or accessed via the link below. Right now we only have info on three games, but that will change as I get cheats and passwords together. With any luck, I’ll be able to get cheats/passwords together for some of the more major games on the N64 together quickly.

February is going to be dedicated to fleshing out RetroMaggedon’s N64 library as well as that of the Sega Saturn, PlayStation 2, and Game Boy Advance.

Nintendo 64 Section Incoming! has been around for nearly six years and I have yet to add a section for the N64. If all goes as planned, that will change in February when we add the iconic console to our list. While I want to keep the details of what games will be covered a surprise, I will say that a few of the most famous N64 games will have saves and/or cheat codes available on this site thanks to the efforts of Hirimaru.

The Sega Saturn will also get a bit of much needed attention over the next few months and I plan to add some stuff for Dreamcast before the year is out.

As always, thanks for using this site!
