At the title screen, hold A + B, then press Start.
Unfinished Sprite Debug in Sound Test
In the Sound test mode, press Start + Select. This will execute a special Sprite Object draw routine instantly, same as the one used in Debug Mode for "OBJ TEST" sprite drawing. However, due to the lack of a proper return code, the game will freeze forever with some odd sprites drawn in the middle on the screen (because there are no proper CHR data loading or sprite selection routines here).
This either may be an unfinished simple sprite debug (which planned to be used apart from main debug code but utilize the same helper routines) or some sort of older sprite debug leftovers. Anyway, using this combination will hang your console for sure and it is still active in any retail version of the game.
At the title screen, hold Select then press A, A, A, A, B, B, B, B, A, B, A, B, A, B, A, B.
Use the Game Genie code 08D-81A-D5A, then at the title screen wait for the demo sequence. The small numbers will appear at the middle of the screen instead. Use A / B to change them, press Start to begin from the selected level or sublevel or cutscene. The index 03 will start an ending sequence.
Use the Game Genie code 08D-D8A-C46, then at the title screen use the "Sound Test" cheat mentioned above. A debug menu offers some CHR and OBJ viewers, a Sound Test, and a Stage Select. Start returns you to the title screen, and A selects one of the menu options.
There are some unused text resources in the main text storage:
