Game emulation bug / workaround – big shoutout to Disa Økland and Shaun Musgrave for this information:
“If you don’t use the in-game save feature and load your game from it at least one during your play through the game will hit a game-ending bug in a late-game dungeon.
This was obviously a rare behavior when playing the original cart so it wasn’t really noticed until people started save-stating their way through in emulators.

All you have to do to avoid it is to save your game using the in-game feature and load the file once.
(This must be done after beating the first boss, as that is where the bug is silently introduced.)”

It seems the initial 10 levels (there are only 10 i think on genesis) use the same passwords as the steam version:

Enter it on the password screen select go and then start a new game and you’ll immediately start on the levels below. I verified the steam passwords and left out the once that did not seem to work or were not possible to enter.

2bama – Stage 2 street
in5k2 – Stage 3 PNC Park
up2h5 – Stage 4 Grandview
3kepe – Stage 5 Skinny Boss
3g5ba – Stage 6 Factory
5p5hy – Stage 7 Psychedelic/Evil you Boss
4kymi – Stage 8 Mars Hell
imeha – Stage 9 Darth B Boss
oz4re – Stage 10 Overlord Boss
