Well, I said in my first post I would add other platforms in the future, so here are my first set of Pro Action Replay codes for the Sega Mega Drive\Genesis game Toxic Crusaders.
Firstly, it must be said this isn’t a much beloved game from what I’ve read around the net, but I am a bit of long time Toxie fan, I think the game is quite a fun novelty, I particularly like the art direction, some of those bosses definitely look pretty funky. The video game is a side-scrolling beat ’em up slash platform romp in the vein of games like Double Dragon, TMNT, Battle Toads…to me those seem like the major influences anyway.

The game is of course based on the cartoon show from the early 90s from Fred Wolf productions (Murakami Wolf Swenson), the same guys who brought you the original TMNT cartoon that spanned the late 80s & early 90s. I took a trip down memory lane and checked out an episode of TC today on Tube and I think the pervading tongue in cheek vibe is quite in sync with the tone of the later season TMNT episodes which constantly break the fourth wall, there are a smattering of off-kilter jokes for ‘older kids’ and most of the human characters look disturbingly like Llyod Kaufman….it’s fun, I really enjoyed revisiting it!
Toxic Crusaders PAR Codes
note: I found these codes while using the character Junkyard, and since this can be a two player game Toxie has different addresses for Lives, health etc. The code for the Skates will only work with Junkyard, but the lives, nrg and invincibility will work with both Junkyard and No-Zone. I quickly did the lives for Toxie, I might do the others later. I tested these extensively on the emulator so there should be no problems, just remember in order to choose the other characters go into the options menu first.
Infinite Lives (Toxie ONLY!)
Infinite Lives (Junkyard & No-Zone ONLY!)
Infinite NRG (Junkyard & No-Zone ONLY!)
Invincible (Junkyard & No-Zone ONLY!)
note: This code affects collision, so DON’T use it on the first level
because you need to use the skateboard to progress. Also, you cannot collect toxic bubbles or the power-up, however with Junkyard you could use this code in conjunction with the Skate code below.
Inf. Chopper fuel (You can crash it when you need to get out)
Always have Skates on (Junkyard ONLY!)
Emulator Only Codes
note: enable only the corresponding code when the Boss actually
appears, then turn it off again when it dies\retreats. I did track
down the fourth Boss nrg address but placing any value into it (even
if not frozen) would crash the game. These codes do NOT work with the
Boss Rush at the end.
Kill first Boss now!
Kill Second Boss now!
Kill Third Boss now!
Kill Fifth Boss now!
