Check it out:
Hold down all the buttons (square, circle, x, triangle, R1. R2, L1,
L2, start, and select) and when the cheesy arcade game comes on, hold
down down on the direction pad. This shoots out a homing laser that
destroys all the ships with no effort, which will give all the normal
cars. This also enables you to play in the strange toy car/off road vehicle
mode. You'll understand when you see it. If you have a memory card,
save it now so you don't have to do this every time you play. It will
not save the off-road part, however.
Try this one:
Hold the brake and acceleration buttons at the same time, right after you
press a button to start a time trial race. When you go around certain
turns it will say "spinning point" on the bottom of the screen. Do a
couple of 360's and get tons of points. It shows your total points during
the victory lap. If you restart the race the code cancels unless you
hold the buttons again.
Or this one...:
In case you didn't know this one that was brought over from the
original, you can turn around at the beginning, right before you enter
the main raceway, and run through the "wall". You will race the track
with all the turns reversed.
Finish first in each track (novice, advanced, and expert),
then return to race each track in Time Trial mode. After beating each
track, the special car (Devil #13, Kid Car #13 or White Angel #0) for that
track will be available.
Get a score of 0 in Galaga '88 by allowing all forty aliens to pass by. The
phrase "Secret Bonus" will appear. Appearance options such as "Normal",
"Noon", "Evening" and "Night" may now be selected from a "Scene" menu.
The game has twelve endings depending on which combination the tracks were
raced. Racing in Advanced, Expert, Novice order has a different ending than
racing in Novice, Expert, Advanced order.
Hold L1 + R1 and press the controller buttons to resize and move the
spotlight on the title screen.
