Nectaris / Military Madness FAQ  (1989 PC-Engine / TurboGrafx-16)


cheating bastards: codes


The following codes work with both the Japanese and North American versions of this game... If, however, you are looking for the passwords for all 32 maps, they can be found further down on this page.  

Play as the GUICY (AXIS)  instead of the UNION  (ALLIED) :
On title screen, press and hold SELECT (be sure to keep the SELECT button pressed for the duration of this code). Highlight "1P CONTINUE" & press "I".  Enter a map name.

Watch the computer fight itself :
On title screen, press and hold SELECT (be sure to keep the SELECT button pressed for the duration of this code). Highlight "2P CONTINUE" & press "I".  Enter a map name.

Sound Test :
Enter "ONGAKU" as a password. You will be able to listen to all the music and sound effects in the original game. Not surprisingly, "Ongaku" means "music" in Japanese.

NOTE ON CODES: None of the codes listed above work for NectarisGB (1998, Gameboy)However, these codes do work for Neo Nectaris --except for the "Sound Test", since a "SOUND MODE" is already available as an option in Neo Nectaris' main menu.

TRIVIA: When Nectaris was released in North America for the TG-16 under the title "Military Madness", 18 passwords were altered. For example, Map 9 changed from "GALOIS" to "GALIOS" and map 14 "APPOLO" was corrected to "APOLLO". In addition, the passwords for the entire advanced campaign (maps 17-32) were changed for the TG-16 title. I think the latter was a good idea, since it made it more difficult to advance by cheating (i.e. simply reversing the map names from the first campaign).

Needless to say, these passwords do not work with the Japanese versions of NECTARIS.  Many online resources have confounded the U.S. & Japanese map names -- don't be confused any longer!
