Main Menu cheat codes

Type these cheat codes in the main menu, including any spaces. If successful, the screen will flash and a message will appear letting you know whether the cheat has been activated or deactivated. Typing the code a second time will disable the cheat.

Code Effect

VERSION Displays the current version number of the game. This is displayed by default after the game loads successfully in v1.05.
WEIRDED Changes the palette values on the main menu.

Hidden Messages

WormsDC also contains a number of hidden messages that can be displayed by typing in the appropriate code on the main menu.

Code Message Notes
AMIGA ROCK LOBSTER!! References the codename for the Amiga 500 home computer, the most common and successful of the Amiga range.
ANDY MAD? POSSIBLY This was in Andy Davidson's email signature at the time of the game's release. The phrase also appears as a message that appears as the terrain is generating in both Worms and WormsDC.
BEN HUTCHINGS IS A … ? References the creator of WormShell, a tool that fixed several bugs in the Amiga release of Worms. Hutchings' ReadMe for WormShell makes some unkind comments about the coding for Worms, and so this comment may have been made in retaliation.
LA CIENDA HONDURAS FESTEN KOMMER HEM Message translates as "the party comes home".
TBL TRANQUILITY BASE LLAMAS!! Tranquility Base is the site of the '69 moon landing.

Landscape Generator cheat codes

Enter these in the Landscape Generator by right-clicking the mouse, typing the code, then pressing the Enter key. Spaces must be included when typing the codes.

In addition to these codes, typing the name of a specific landscape style (e.g. HELL, ARCTIC, FOREST) will generate landscapes of only that style.

Code Effect Notes
1471 Re-generates the previous level. References the 1471 code in the UK telephone system that provides the phone number of the last person to call you.
ALL Will generate any type of landscape. Active by default.
CAVERN Only generate Cavern landscapes, with ceilings. All Air Strike weapons are disabled on these landscapes except for the Concrete Donkey. Appending a space and then this code to a landscape style name will generate only Cavern landscapes of that style (e.g. "HELL CAVERN", "ARCTIC CAVERN"). Due to a character limit, "GRAVEYARD CAVERN" cannot be typed.
CUSTOM Randomly selects a custom level. Left-clicking the mouse will pick another random one.
GRAFFITI Randomly selects a saved Graffiti level. Left-clicking the mouse will pick another random one.
HIGH Generates landscapes with a much higher than usual water level.
LOW Generates landscapes with the standard water level.
MEDIUM Generates landscapes with a slightly higher than usual water level.
WEIRDED Generates hollow landscapes.
632 800-999 Where "800-999" is any number between 800 and 999 (e.g. 632 876). This generates a series of weird and wonderful landscapes. It is not known whether this is an intentionally coded number range, or a quirk of the terrain generation system.
