Men in Black: The Series
|Men in Black: The Series|
Black suits, shades and a dental plan better than the FBI's won't even be able to rescue this game.
Every last Super Game Boy song from A Bug's Life remains inside the game, probably because Tiertex was going to give Men In Black the Series an enhanced soundtrack for when played using a Super Game Boy. Probably because of time and how other games were in development during the same time, chances were not possible. Shortly after starting up, the unused A Bug's Life Super Game Boy music can be accessed via Game Boy Game Genie codes 0?7-5BF-E6A + 57C-43F-3B4 + 07C-44F-F72. Alternatively, the Super Nintendo PAR code 010340?? will also work on emulators.

Starting at 0x2D8BC is a ton of development-related text, some of it is leftover from A Bug's Life!

Several debugging features exist and are quite useful too. Enable them by using the Game Genie code FF3-67F-E6A or Gameshark codes 01FFA1C5 01FFA2C5.
Your Cricket gun will be super-powered for a few shots by holding Select and pressing A. This will destroy any enemy onscreen in with single shot.
Once the debugging features are enabled, level skipping features become accessible. Pause and Press Start and Select to skip the level, password included. Secondly, level-segments can also be skipped by pausing and pressing Start and A. Alternatively, when the Access Code 2409 is entered in the game's password menu, entire level skipping features and restarting the level with A button is enabled.
Free Movement Mode
Enabled along with level skipping, a free-movement mode is activated. Hold Select, and press Up, Right, Left or Down to move anywhere onscreen. Keep in mind that obstacles cannot be phased through and enemies still hurt you. Let go of the buttons to drop and resume normal controls. Alternatively, the access code 0601 will only allow you levitate until Up is released.
Leftover Placeholder Levels
Several placeholder levels exist though they will be black. Appearing as indefinitely scrolling levels with garbage graphics and no music, they were probably used as a space-filler. Game Shark code 01??CBFF 27-32 will load the placeholder levels on the next screen.
