Darius (Genesis Mini)
|This page is rather stubbly and could use some expansion.|
Are you a bad enough dude to
The Genesis Darius is a port by hobbyist programmer Hideki Konishi and M2 that was later licensed by Sega and Taito for inclusion with the Sega Genesis Mini.
Did I mention that it's a brand-new official Genesis game in 2019?
At the title screen, press Right, Left, Right, Left, B, B, B, B, Left. The screen will flash and "DEBUG" will appear at the bottom right to confirm correct entry. A level select will appear when starting the game, and the following functions will be enabled on controller 1 (NOTE: Requires a 6-button controller) during gameplay:
X: Toggle Invincibility
Y: Press repeatedly to refill powerups
Z: Skip to final boss
All of these are entered on the Options menu.
Pressing Up, Up, Down, Down, Up, Up, Down, Down will bring up a sound test. Notably, it automatically switches between tracks like a music player rather than playing the same song on loop as most sound test menus do. It also plays the title jingle when you access it.
Down, Up, Down, Up, Down, Up, Down, Up opens a screen for testing display and audio lag. Considering this game was designed to be played in an emulator, this might have been used for testing latency during the development of the Genesis Mini.
