Super Star Wars (SNES) Cheat Codes


The various codes for Super Star Wars can be a bit complicated and often require the user to input them quickly, so do not be surprised if they don’t work the first time you try them. The Debug Menu, which happens to be the most useful of the cheats, has to be entered with two controllers; make sure you have one ready before attempting to use it. Finally, some codes will not work with others and it’s probably best to just use the Debug Menu if you are looking for an all around cheat.

Sound Test

Hold A B X Y then press Start while the game is active to initiate the sound test.

You can cycle through the soundtrack with the directional buttons and play songs by hitting A, B, X, or Y. The same can be done with sound effects.

Debug Mode

It’s also possible to activate a variety of cheats, which are listed below, by pressing buttons on Controller 2.
