Debug Menu Cheat

The debug Menu features all kinds of cheats that make the game easier. To get started, begin the game as you normally would and run right until you see a pit with nothing on the other side. A snake occupies the ledge of this pit and Mowgli will try to balance himself over the precipice when you reach the spot. Next, leap into the canyon, then hit Start to pause the game when Mowgli is level with the ledge as he is falling. Enter the following while the game is paused:

B, A, Down, C, Right, A, B, Left, A, Right, Down, B, A, Left, Left, C, Up, Right, then Left

If entered correctly, the code will bring up the debug menu which has the following options:

Map View Mode

No Energy Loss 

Infinite Lives

Infinite Time

Single Gem Mode

Force Bonus Level

Palette Editor

Solid Floor 

Press the A Button to toggle these options on or off. Hit Start to begin the game with the debug settings in effect. Most of these effects are self explanatory, but it is worth noting that map view mode turns off collision and allows the player to move around the stage freely. Solid floor mode prevents Mowgli from dying when he falls into a pit.

Note: Mowgli has to be level with the ledge he jumped from and between the ledge and the tree to the right when you pause or the debug menu will not appear. Getting Mowgli in the right spot can take several tries.

The preceding cheats, which originally appeared in Tips and Tricks Magazine, have been compiled and transcribed to this site for the sake of posterity as well as for the convenience of our visitors. They have been tested thoroughly for accuracy. Feel free to contact us if you have problems getting these cheats to work or know something we do not.
