Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball/Hidden content
From Sonic Retro
- Back to: Sonic the Hedgehog Spinball.
Sonic Spinball contains two different in-game cheats - a level select and a skip to the credits. It is worth noting that it is possible to break how these are entered: on the Option screen, the Flipper option lets the player change the button assignments for the Left, Right and All flippers; however the way it does this is by remapping the button not just for the flippers, but for the entire game. As such, whatever LEFT is set to becomes the button, whatever RIGHT is set to becomes , and whatever ALL is set to becomes . While this method of remapping the buttons makes no difference in-game, the one thing this does effect is that if the player enters one of the below cheat codes on a joypad after altering the button assignments, the code will not work: if for example the player has set it to A: LEFT, B: ALL, C: RIGHT, every press of on the joypad will actually be recognised by the game as pressing . This also means, for example, if the code for the level select is entered correctly, then the flipper layout changed so is set to control ALL flippers, pressing + will actually take you to Level 4, and not Level 3.
On the Options screen press . A chime will play. Return to the title screen and hold button + for Level 2, + for Level 3, and + to begin on level 4.
Jump to the Credits
On the Options screen, press . A chime will play, and you will be taken straight to the credits screen.
