Wiki Spoiler warning: This article contains information on a Cheat Unit. Please use discretion when viewing this page.


Method Edit

Press Enter during gameplay and enter the code below. Then press Enter again to complete. The codes are not case sensitive. One the cheat code is initiated, the unit spawns at the Town Center last built. If the town center is researching a new age, the cheat unit cannot be spawned. Any code that affects existing units cannot pass on to enemy units converted by the player. To maximize combat potential, make sure to type the code before researching specific technologies that benefit that unit.

Codes Edit

Units Edit

  • BIG BERTHA - Transforms Stone Throwers, Catapults and Heavy Catapults into Big Berthas, which have more hit points and most importantly, greater range and much larger area of effect.
  • PHOTON MAN - Creates a futuristic robot trooper armed with a rapid-fire laser gun.
  • STEROIDS - Instantly builds structures, gather resources, and build units. This cheat affects ALL players in the game.
  • BLACK RIDER - Transforms a Horse Archer or Heavy Horse Archer into a Black Rider, which will turn into a Catapult, Heavy Catapult or Big Bertha if killed.
  • DARK RAIN - Transforms bowmen and all foot archers into Stealth Archers. They turn into trees when standing still and can walk on water.
  • ICBM - Ballistas and helepolises gets 100 range. However, this does not affect line of sight. As a result, any moving target that is beyond the original range cannot be attacked. Fortunately, it can attack any building discovered through the fog of war. This makes it useful to attack Wonders as a last resort.
  • HOYOHOYO - Priests get tremendous speed and 600 hit points, which all can be doubled if appropriate technologies are researched at the temple only after this cheat is summoned.
  • GAIA - Controls all animals in the game except for anything that can be fished but you lose control of your civilization. This cheat code cannot be reversed. Under most circumstances, if either the original player or their enemies are eliminated, the game is over regardless of who gets eliminated first.
