How to Cheat on the iPod Game "Vortex"

"Vortex" is an iPod default game for the newer models. It replaced "Brick," the game for earlier iPods where the paddle was at the base of the screen instead of around it, like in the newer version. The cheat won't make your game go nuts, crash, or anything like that.


NB: This cheat has only been tested on the 3rd, 4th and 5th generation Nano, and is known to only work on the 4th generation Nano[citation needed]. Alongside this cheat is official cheats for the every iPod that has the game.
