Extra Weapons & Options – Computer Entertainer

Gradius can be rather difficult, even with practicing every day. This code will give you the edge against the hordes of enemy ships. On any level, all you need to do is pause the game by pressing the Start button. Then input the following code:

Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, and then press Start again. You’ll now be equipped with Missiles, Force Field, and Options. Good luck!
