Fun to know about G&W
When i have played all my games ive found out some different things with them. Just fun to know and if you know something i dont, please mail me about it.
If you take off the battery cover when you play and wriggle the batteries some very weird stuff can appear. (if you are lucky) I dont do this now, dont know if its good for the game, but i remember playing Donkey Kong when i was little and sometimes i got: Two Mario, Three Donkey Kongs, VERY slow barrels and stuff like that. Give it a try and reach new dimensions!
Almost every G&W have a test mode when you put the batteries in; all LCD:s shows at the same time. But after a few years Nintendo took it away. Dont know why, but these are the games who dont have test mode:
Blackjack, Bombsweeper, Safebuster, Goldcliff, Zelda, Super Mario Bros (both New Wide and Crystalscreen), Climber (both New Wide and Crystalscreen), Ballonfight (both New Wide and Crystalscreen) and Mario the Juggler.
Thanks to Jason Oliver from Australia all info above are wrong.
They all have a testmode. These are Jasons own words:
1. Remove the battery cover and the Batteries 2. Hold down the Jump/Eject button 3. Now with your other hand Place and Hold the Batteries in their sockets. You should now see all the characters at once. NOTE: Sometimes it doesn't work - it all depends on how you hold the Batteries - but once you've got the PICTURE - it will stay there until you release the Batteries or the Jump Button. For GoldCliff and Zelda you follow the same steps but I think you press CONTINUE instead of JUMP. day - here's hoping Jason Oliver
On a few games you can also press some of the game buttons simultaniously to get the testscreen (same as you push ACL):
Turtlebridge: Time + left button + right button
Fire Attack: Time + lower left button + lower right button
Snoopy Tennis: Time + left button + lower right button
DK j.r: Time + right button + lower button
Manhole "new wide": Time + lower left + lower right
Oil panic: Time + both buttons
Donkey Kong: Time + down-right
Mickey and Donald: Time + down on left button + right on right button
Greenhouse: Time + down-right
Donkey Kong2: Time + down-right
Squish: Time + down on left button + left on right button
Mario Bros: Down on both buttons
D.K j.r Panorama: Time + down-right
In Lifeboat you can turn the game on if you press: Left button, right button and time in that order. Or: right, left, time. Odd!!
In Oil Panic you can get 4 misses before its game over.
In Mickey Mouse you can get 6 misses, but only if Minnie appears when you miss.
If you hold the time button in when you press the game button in Ballonfight, youll get to the 17:th level when it starts.
Bombsweeper is the only game which has only one control-panel
In every game you get an opportunity to get rid of your misses at a certain point. If you dont have any misses at this point you instantly get into "blinkmode"; Your point doubles. Different games have different blinkmode level: TO BE CONTINUED!!!!!!!
