Use the sound test selection on the options menu. Choose sounds
19, 65, 9, and 17 (in that order) and press C after each selection.
A chime will confirm correct code entry. Press Start. Hold A and
press Start when Sonic and Tails appear at the title screen.
Play this sequence at the level select sound test screen:
1, 9, 9, 2, 1, 1, 2, 4. Then, hold A + Start as you enter a level.
Play in the dark:
Hold C + Start at the level select menu.
Play this sequence at the level select sound test screen: 4, 1, 2, 6.
Select any level, get 50 rings, then jump.
This trick requires the "Level select" and "Debug mode" codes. Go to any
stage and change into an object. Press A until you get to the object
before the single ring. It is a strange looking object with a little
Robotnik head (a machine where all the creatures appear from if you
defeated a Boss).
Place about ten in a row. Step on the first one until you see the score
counting as if you completed the level. When you see that, step on the
other buttons. You will go to the level after the level you were supposed
to go to. For example: if you were in the Emerald Hill Act 1 you will now
be in Chemical Plant Act 1. You can do this trick in any stage, but not
in Dead Zone.
Go to the sound test (not the one on the level select) and put in 19,
65, 09, 17, 01, 01, 02, 04 (press A after each one). There won't be a
confirmation sound. Start the game by pressing Start on the first option
(character select) and you should have 14 continues.
Becoming Super Sonic in Emerald Hill - an alternate way:
For all those who like to play honest instead of cheating all those Chaos
Emeralds together, there's an alternate - yet simple - way to become Super
Sonic in Emerald Hill Zone 1. It involves some serious work, however:
1.Complete the special stages as you would usually do and collect as many
emeralds as you want.
3.Start a new game USING THE OPTIONS MENU! This is crucial! Otherwise your
emeralds are gone for good!
4.Continue collecting the emeralds, if you don't have them all, yet and
repeat point two and three until you got them all.
If you did everything correctly, after your last reset you should have all
the emeralds from the very beginning and without using any code ever thus
making Super Sonic available from the very beginning. This has been tested
and confirmed with the PAL version of Sonic 2 playing on a PAL Megadrive II.
Pseudo Super Sonic:
In Oil Ocean Zone, if you manage to take a hit and end up landing in one of
those green-and-gold checkered cannons, you'll fall right out, but you'll
be moving at twice your normal speed as well as jumping twice your normal
height(with twice as much gravity). A good place for doing this would be
in Oil Ocean Zone, Act 2, near the first set of pop-tops and cannons. Just
jump into the semi-hidden bed of spikes on the right and land in the cannon.
Note: Moving at twice normal velocity can often get you stuck in a wall.
Also, this wears off if you Super Spin Dash or Spin Dash. It also only
lasts for that Act.
* First, enable the level select cheat and the debug mode which are available
here. For this to work, you must choose Sonic and Tails as the players.
* After entering the codes, choose any stage from the level select menu
(preferrably stage 1)
* As soon as you can move Sonic, hold down, and press C(don't let go of down
on the D-pad). This will activate Sonic's spin; Tails will copy the Sonic
* Press the B button and Sonic will become the Debug cursor.
(Tails will be locked in the sonic spin move).
* Press A until you(the debug cursor), displays an enemy sprite, like the
monkey or that bee robot. Now that the debug cursor displays an enemy
sprite, move the debug cursor to where Tails is, and repeatedly tap C.
This will produce enemies where Tails is, and since Tails is locked in the
sonic spin move, he will destroy the enemies. As Tails destroys enemies in
this position, press C more until the score for destroying an enemy increases
from 100 to 8000 to a 1up. Once you have enough 1ups, press B again to
revert to Sonic.
