NEW ZEALAND STORY
The following stand-alone POKE promises an unlimited supply of lives to all those daring enough to type in this listing, before RUNning it and loading the game as usual.
1 CLR : FOR A=271 TO 299 : READ B : POKE A,B : C=C+B : NEXT
2 IF C=3107 THEN POKE157,128 : SYS271
3 PRINT "DATA ERROR"
4 DATA 32, 86, 245, 169, 169, 141, 87, 3, 169, 173, 141, 88, 3, 169, 141, 141
5 DATA 89, 3, 169, 143, 141, 90, 3, 169, 12, 141, 91, 3, 96
INFINITE LIVES + LEVEL SKIPPING
Hold down all of the keys that make up the phrase "TRY CHEATING" (including the space bar - and with the T held down only once, of course). When performed correctly, the border should turn grey, indicating that you now have inifinite lives and the ability to skip levels (except guardian levels) by holding down CTRL and the LEFT ARROW key.
Infinite lives may also be gained through freezing the game with an Action Replay (or similar) cartridge before entering POKE 3215,173. Returning to the game is as simple as entering SYS 2306.
BOSS TIP: SEAL
When fighting the last end-of-level baddie, wait until he stops firing, then pass through him so that you are standing behind him. From there, shoot the balloon on his head multiple times to dispatch of him quickly.
