Level Select

At the title screen on controller 1 press Select a number of times corresponding to the desired world (1 time - World 2, 2 times - World 3), then hold A + B and press Start. If you do not press Select and just hold A + B before Start, World 1 will be played immediately without intro.

Debug mode and Easter egg

This only works for World 3. Before the World number screen appears hold A + B + Select + Up + Left on controller 1 and A + B + Down + Right on controller 2 at the same time. This will enable the debug flag. Now during the game, you can use the D-Pad buttons on controller 2 to jump to the next room in corresponding direction. Press A + B on controller 2 to see the Easter egg screen featuring the character Dorami and "KiKu", a reference to the game's programmer. After this screen is displayed, the game will return to the title screen.

The World warp cheats can also be used to quickly access World 3. Instead of A + B at the title screen, press the complete combination of buttons mentioned above.
