That’s ‘Up Up Down Down Left Right Left Right B A Start’ for anyone that needs an extra 27 lives per continue in Contra(which includes just about everyone). Yeah, it’s probably the most renowned cheat code ever and its catchy rhythms are embedded deep in the brainskull like a dance beat from the early 90’s. So, it’s not like you would need to wear this as a memory aid, by any means, but more to say, “I’ve seen a few of these levels and I prefer to give myself a sporting chance.” Plus, it’s not like you get ‘Infinite Lives’ or something, which pretty much equates to zero fun. 120 and you can afford to get a little crazy, but watch that ass, these things don’t last forever.
Winner’s Tip: Invite a friend; add a Select before that Start. You just made life into your own little alien-blasting disco party… minus the disco, of course.
