To start with more lives, on the main menu hold A + B on the second controller and select options. If you did this correctly, you will be able to move the players (lives) all the way up to 9.
To access the level select, on the main menu hold A + B on the second controller and select options. If you did this correctly, you will see extra options, and at the bottom, the one that says Round is your stage select option.
On stage 1 as soon as you start the level there is a mailbox towards the bottom left of the screen. If you go to it and press B (the punch button) you'll be able to pick up the hidden 1-up behind it.
On stage 2 right after you get out of the truck, go behind the truck cab on the top left part of the screen. Behind the cab, there is a hidden 1-up you can pick up by pressing B (the punch button).
If you want to avoid taking damage when an enemy throws you, press and hold Up + C as soon as an enemy throws you until you hit the ground. If you do this correctly, your character will land on their feet instead of hitting the ground and they won't take any damage.
The following cheat codes are for Game Genie. These can be used on a Sega Genesis 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.
