Another cheat for the game is to type “CHEAT” on the password bit. When you’re in the level do not use the warp, instead collect everything on the way down. At the bottom of the maze collect the gem before collecting the coin. When you collect the gem the following list cheat keys will be available:
‘HELP’_____Skip to next level ‘W’____________For fire weapon
‘DEL’_________Activate shield ‘B’__________________For bombs
‘L’___________For extra lives ‘E’_________________For energy
‘A’_______All coins collected ‘F’____________Freeze monsters
Enter any of the following for your password:
“CHEATOFF”_________________Shuts the above cheat off.
“REVEAL”____Reveals the locations of hidden passages.
“SONIC”__________________________Increase game speed.
“NORMAL”_________________Revert back to normal speed.
In one player mode enter “QSSIFS4UYLS2WGKUN3” for the password and you will be wisked away to level three with enough lives to complete the game with ease.
