  4. 99 lives glitch

    This glitch will allow you to obtain 99 lives. In order for this to work, you must have zero lives left, and die at the same time you get an extra life. The best way to do this is by killing the mini boss of level 1 because that usually gets you an extra life. Get hit by one of the fireballs it drops down on you the instant you destroy it.

  5. Alternate Color for Unlockable Characters (Probotector, Lucia, Sheena Etranzi, Jimbo & Sully)

    In the Character Select Mode, press up twice or down twice with Probotector, Lucia, Sheena Jimbo or Sully selected to change the character's color. You can change back to the original color by changing to another character and back again.

  6. Level 2 Sniper Secret

    By the end of level 2 when the elevator carries you to the top, make sure you have the doubled flame-thrower and homing missiles equipped. Use the homing missiles to eliminate the enemies that come from the door and the red snipers that follow. Next, aim up with the flame thrower and take out the 2 grenade tossing soldiers that appear on the high platforms, ending with the left one. As soon as he is defeated, walk all the way to the left of the screen, face right, and quickly shoot upwards until the 1st sniper that will appear above you is destroyed. As soon as he is defeated, quickly duck. The bullets from the remaining 3 snipers will safely miss you indefinitely. While still ducking, simply equip the heat-seeking missiles and eliminate them.

Then press B, A, and then tap the center of the touch screen. "Up" on the touch screen refers to the top of the screen, "down" refers to the bottom of the screen, and left and right refer to the left and right sides of the screen. This must be input before the chopper drops your character on the ground, so it must be done very quickly. If done correctly, you will start the game with 34 lives.
