Back in the '90s when micro-transactions were nowhere to be seen, cheat codes reigned supreme. All you had to do was input a code and you became unstoppable - no monetary transactions required, just a series of button presses. When you think of all the cool games during this era, one of them might be Sonic the Hedgehog.

It turns out Sonic Mania is channeling yesteryear, with our friends at PushSquare reporting a number of cheat codes have been unearthed for the nostalgia-fuelled game. To access the codes, you'll need to enter Mania Mode, enable the Debug Mode from the options section, hold Y as you select the 'No Save' option, and then go to the Sound Test to input the following codes:

  • 3 3 3 1 9 7 9 0 8 1 1 – Changes all animals into Squirrels
  • 4 1 2 6 – All Emeralds
  • 1 9 9 2 1 1 2 4 – Infinite Continues
  • 2 0 1 8 0 6 2 3 – Force Encore Mode
  • 1 9 8 9 0 5 0 1 – Unknown
  • 2 0 1 7 0 8 1 5 – Super Sonic Flight in normal levels (Don’t need to be Super to trigger it)
  • 9 0 0 1 – Max Control For Sonic (Drop Dash, Super Peel Out, Insta-Shield)
  • 0 0 0 0 6 2 1 4 – Disable Super Music

Upon entering a code correctly you'll hear a chime. It appears the cheat codes only work with the 'No Save' option. 

Tell us in the comments if you intend to make use of these Sonic Mania cheat codes.
