In the Game Over screen, during the "Continue" prompt, enter the Konami code (Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A). You can then access the hidden Sound Test.

Debug Menu

A simple, unfinished Debug Menu exists in the game's code. Use the Game Genie code 2FC-86F-7FE to access it. Note that this code will skip over initializing many variables, so you'll need to set them manually once inside the menu. All numbers in the menu are in hexadecimal, but since there is no full hex character set, you won't be able to see all of the numbers properly.

There are four options on the menu, with the third being invisible. The first two options correspond to the stage and stage location indices, respectively. The third option changes the value of the music index, but there is no code to actually play any audio. The fourth option is for some in-game flags, but it doesn't seem to actually work.

Change the values with the D-Pad, then press Start to start the game with the selected options.
