Battletoads Cheats For NES

Start With 5 Lives

To start the game with 5 lives instead of the default 3 lives, on the title screen hold Down + A + B then press Start. If you did this correctly, when you start the game you will begin with 5 lives.

Level 1 To Level 3 Warp

To warp to level 3 (Turbo Tunnel) from level 1, headbutt the first two enemies to dispatch them quickly and run to the platform in the upper right on the next screen. On the platform, you will see the warp that will take you to level 3.

Level 3 To Level 5 Warp

To warp to level 5 (Surf City) from level 3, slam into the 10th wall located at the bottom of the screen. You will come up to a section that has a bunch of walls in a row that you must avoid by moving down and up, counting the walls, when you reach the 10th one, a warp will be in front of it.

Level 4 To Level 6 Warp

To warp to level 6 from level 4, get to the point in the level where you can use a falling platform to lower you down the level. Take the platform down and keep jumping so it starts to take you back up top. This will cause a warp to appear up top that will take you to level 6.

Stage 6 To Stage 8 Warp

To warp to level 8 from level 6 (Karnaths Lair), get to the second snake pit by making your way to the top right by climbing up the snakes. Once in the second snake pit, jump all the way over the far-right while avoiding the spikes nearby. On the platform, you will see the warp that will take you to level 8 (Intruder Excluder).
