At the end of level 1 right before the entrance to the boss area, you'll notice two tracks that look like they belong to an elevator. If you go between them and press up, you'll exit the top of the level, then loop back from the bottom of the level. If you hold down it will instantly kill you.
When the level 2 boss comes out of the door, head back down the ladder. When you get halfway down the second ladder you will instantly complete the level and the victory music will start to play.
The following cheat codes are for Game Genie. These can be used on a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) with a Game Genie device or you can use these on any emulator that supports Game Genie Codes. If you want a Game Genie Device, you can always check on Amazon for one.
