  and this can only be done by entering a menu first

Vyse States:
"Little Samson is a decent game to own if you find it for cheap, but
sometimes...I just feel the game is praised more than necessary. I won't
lie to you and state that it is worth the dollar value that it goes for...
because it doesn't even come close to being worth 60 to 80 dollars for
just a cartridge. It's a fun little diversion, but the game is really only
decent on the first playthrough. The game has impressive visuals, but
the other aspects of the game are average. If you find a relatively
cheap copy, you should definitely buy it. Otherwise, I wouldn't bother."
