Devastators Cheats & Cheat Codes

Devastors Summary

Sometimes you just gotta go in, guns blazing.

Devastators is a retro 1989 video game, sort of behind-the-back, top-down shooter where you take control of a helicopter on foot. Think of it as akin to Galaga, where you have to shoot your way through hordes of enemies. First developed by Konami, the gameplay consists of you shooting various foes and enemies, ranging from infantry soldiers to tanks to aircraft. The game is unique in the sense that you don’t advance automatically. Instead, you must push forward on a stick to move your character. While that may not sound like much these days, in the arcade at that time, it was unheard of.

Code-named “Devastators,” the two mercs must fight off hordes of enemies led by a fanatical dictator. Their fight will take them through the jungles, through the desert, through enemy bases, and any army thrown at them.

Devastors Cheat Codes 

Sadly, there are no cheat codes for this game, so instead, let’s go over some tips and tricks!

  • Move Forward when you want to. If the game is overwhelming you, remember that the game only advances when you move forward. Ergo, if you need to restock your equipment, or just take a breather, just keep it in place.
  •  Sniping can be your friend. As a byproduct of the game only advancing when you do, there’s a benefit of just moving so slowly that the enemies spawn one at a time. Then, you take the ranged advantage and shoot them.
  •  Have fun! Much like a game based on 80s movies, don’t be afraid to shoot everything you can, and have fun!
