Game Hints // Codes / Passwords

This page is for the passwords and codes for the Ristar games...

16 Bit Version:

N/A means the code is a easter egg-type code. It doesn't do anything of practical use and is just a bit of fun!

Note: If a code is not 6 letters long like SUPER, then any character can be added after the password and it will still work! A well known example is SUPERB, but another could be AGESAD instead of AGES.

8 Bit Version:

Although there are 2 version, to a degree, the codes work in both regions.

The Codes KUMI, YAKORA, 999999 and README were discovered by Djbrayster within the rom data, and he sent the codes to GameFAQs with a site link... Which they didn't post... But at least it says "submitted by Djbrayster".

The level codes were found by choosing not to continue a game on the continue screen.
The other codes were found inside the rom and were previously unknown until we found them first!
