There's a secrets option in the "Gameplay" section of the options. >_>

Edit: Also, AI seems to be more cognizant about the wraparound screen, although I might be looking for that now.

Nice job.  That is part of secret #20, but you didn't really say how to unlock that part.

Sorry, that one was announced in the "whats new" file.

Nice.  Part of secret #21.  Figure out what triggers it.

Oh you can exit the level during a tour so if your about to lose and it'll let your start the match over. Don't know if it was like that before.
