I was playing an old favourite of mine from years back and without thinking about it i entered a couple of cheat codes, they seemed to be engrained in my memory, I was just wonderng what game cheat codes from past years you have stored away in your memory banks

I imagine everyone has the followng stored away, Doom codes

IDKFA
IDFA
IDDQD

or these for Duke Nukem 3D

DNKROZ
DNSTUFF
DNITEMS
DNWEAPONS

I have more stored for safe keeping but do you guys have codes engrained on your memory

Sonic 2 level select - 19 65 09 17 in sound test.

SF2 SNES pseudo-champion edition - up R down L Y B at the Capcom logo.

Sega Rally to unlock the Stratos - X Y Z Y X at the main menu screen.

Virtua Fighter to play as Dural - down up right A+left together at the character select screen.

Sonic 3D on the Mega Drive was B A Right Right A C Up Down A, I don't know why but I still remember that one. And not really a cheat as such, but Llamatron on the ST had a thing where if you paused it just as you died (to a chant of "OHHHH") then he'd finish the phrase and it became "OHHH censored!" This was highly amusing when I was a kid.

Wonderboy and the Dragon's Trap - WE5T 10 and then 0 recurring all the way to the end - can't remember what it does - has the game 99% complete with just the last boss to fight I think?

3D Starstrike on the spectrum, pausing the game and then typing 'I wanna cheat'

Looking back on it, and the type of game it was, all rather pointless.

I was sure ABACABB for the blood code would have already been mentioned (I'd forgotten about DULLARD though!) :lol:
Sonic 1&2 of course, and leaving the cursor over 'shuriken' in the options on Revenge of Shinobi for a minute or so for infinite shuriken.

Shift Lock and G to get the gun on C64 Kung Fu Master, one of my fave cheats ever!

The following cheats seem to be sticking in my mind forever. Both of them are for master system:
3V35NLLE : level select code for Bubble Bobble
212UD: blood code for Mortal Kombat

The last one has in fact a rather funny story. I bought the game at it's release and a friend of mine came over to get his ass whooped obviously. As we waited for the title screen to appear, we where so excited that we both hammered on our control pads and suddenly we seemed to have activated the blood code. Months went by while we repeated the same ritual again and again, with an occasional reset of the console now and then, as we had no clue what the correct code was. Afterwards, I spotted the code in a magazine, which ended our "smash those control pad" days :)

Well I've got an IDKFA t-shirt so I always remember that one. Another for Doom was IDCLEVxx.

Also, what about MLI for Wolfenstein 3D.

Apart from some of the ones mentioned already:

Symbol Shift to walk through walls on Spectrum Gauntlet

Enter the passcode as TRYX on Gates Of Zendocon for the Lynx to get the stage with the flying digitised heads of programmers and enter MAND on Chip's Challenge to get the Mandlebrot Generator.
