G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor (NES) Passwords


Select the Password option on the Start Screen. The game will take to a screen with 14 grids. Each grid can have 1 letter or number. The A and B Buttons cycle through the available characters. Pressing A or B after moving the cursor to a different cell on the same grid will move the character. After entering each character, use the D-Pad to select the Start option at the bottom and press Start to begin the game.


G.I. Joe: The Atlantis Factor allows players to explore the game in a variety of ways, so there are no sequential stages. Instead, each password will take you to a game session where some of the Joes have been rescued and some of the stages have been cleared. The passwords at the top of the list are for earlier parts of the game, while the one at the bottom will take you to the end. 

An image of each password is included with the written versions below. The letters and numbers represent the grid, password character, and the specific cell in the grid. Cells are numbered from 1 to 9 going from left to right, top to bottom. For example the first part of a password is Grid 1: C-3. To enter this coordinate, go to the first grid, move the cursor over to the third cell, then go through the characters until you find C.
