Debug Menu

Game Genie codes ZAXEPEXY OAXEZAEA EPXEIAEO YLXAIAZS enable a debug menu after reset. Up and Down move the cursor, while Left and Right change the value. B and A increase and decrease the value by 10, respectively.

  • RUN GAME - Starts the game; changing the value changes the level the player starts on.
  • MUSIC TEST - Plays a music track upon pressing Start.
  • SOUND EFFECT - Plays a sound effect upon pressing Start.
  • LEVEL MAP TEST - Presumably allowed levels to be viewed at one point, but only shows garbage now.
  • DEMO LEVEL - Plays one of the game's six demos (from 00-05). Values beyond 05 will always play the 5th demo.
  • NNN - There are two of these, neither of which function.

Right before the menu opens, a copyright message saying "FC SYSTEM (C) COPYRIGHT" and a blinking string saying "LIBARY READY" (a typo of "LIBRARY READY") will appear for a couple of seconds. There's also "EI-HOW YANG", but it's colored the same as the background.

Functionally, the menu is almost identical to Toy Story and Super Donkey Kong, which were also done by Ei-How Yang.

Demo Record


Game Genie code GAXEZEGK will re-enable a partially working demo recording menu. Unfortunately, you can't record anything now.


Game Genie codes ZLNZKEYZ GESZXOGK will re-enable a "Diesny Interactive" logo at startup. Why it wasn't used is unknown, but it might have been too provocative.

Oddly enough, the CHR data for this logo contains tiles with the correct "Disney" name, but they aren't used in this tilemap at all.

Stage Select

Press A + B + Select + Start before the title screen appears. Use Up / Down to select a stage, and press Start to begin.
