Home Alone is an NES game based on the film of the same name.

Secret Screen

"And, of course, Cricket."

At the copyright text screen, press Up + Left + A + B + Select, then Down + Right + A + B + Start. This special screen will appear.

This code can be entered with either controller, and can also be done in Bethesda's other NES games (Wayne Gretzky Hockey and Where's Waldo?) to bring up a similar screen.

Reset String

Present at 0x06FC is the string RAND. This is a reference to the programmer, Randy Linden. The string checks whether the credits screen has been displayed or not upon reset.

Unused Graphics

The game contains the graphics for the title screen of Where's Waldo.

Revisional Differences

Revision 0 Revision 1
NEANDERTHAL KEVIN!! OH NO! Redefines the meaning of the term "missing childr-" sorry that was bad

Getting caught by one of the burglars will bring up this screen. Originally, this was art of Kevin doing his famous scream pose. Revision 1 replaced him with a puff of smoke that has "oh no!" in it (make of this what you will), and also moved the picture frames down a bit for some reason.
