Hiya to everybody !!

Some of you must be asking "Why a Hidden Games F.A.Q. ??". Well it's 
really simple to why i'm writing this FAQ, first to know which games
has a hidden game or games within the cartridge or CD.

Second, i found these tricks to be the most enjoyable of them all
because it reveals a new game that you didn't know that existed !!
Just think about it, 2 games (or more) for the price of one.

a video game magazine or whatever...

So, enjoy now your new found games !!!

Nicholson, who I think was the programmer of the game: BattleZone 2000

hidden it. This must be one of the biggest easter eggs in history.
