Shanghai II (NES)
This game has a prototype article
It's not often big cities get sequels, but when there's a Shanghai II and a Shanghai II 2 you know they're onto something.
Holding Right and pressing A, Start, B, Select, A on the title screen will bring up the game's ending screens, which can be cycled through by pressing A. Additionally, holding Select and pressing A will bring up the game's credits (normally viewable by completing Tournament mode).
While confirming the Retry option during a Solitaire Mode game (accessible under the Help2 menu), holding Down + B on Controller 2 while pressing A on Controller 1 will cause the puzzle to be cleared after the restart.
These two jingles that can be found in the Arcade version of this game show up here, unused.
This was the Game Over theme in the Arcade game. In this version however only sound effects play when there are no more moves or if the time is up.
This jingle played while the tiles are being set up in the Arcade version. Here, its Name Entry theme was repurposed to serve the same function instead, perhaps due to the longer time it takes for this version to set up.
