Who doesn’t remember the oft used and abused cheat code “up up down down left right left right B A start”?
The Konami Code, known in Japan as the Konami Command (コナミコマンド ,Konami Komando?), is a cheat code that appears in many Konami video games. The code also appears in some non-Konami games. The code was first used in the 1986 release of Gradius for the Nintendo Entertainment System but was made famous in North America in the NES version of Contra, for which it was also dubbed the “30 Lives Code”. While pausing the game or during the title screen, the player could press the following sequence of buttons on the game controller: up up down down left right left right B A.
