If you need some cheats while playing the Samurai Gunn 2, this guide will explain how you can activate the debug mode, which provides a menu of cheats.
Accessing the menu and using it
- Hold down either ctrl key.
- Look in the upper right corner of the screen.
- Press the number key corresponding to the option you would like to activate.
When active, the menu looks like this:
What does each option do?
They’re all fairly self explanatory, thanks to their helpful labels, but here’s a rundown of each one.
Teleports you about 1/2 a screen to the left on the singplayer map screen, ignoring collision.
If you get stuck out of bounds (beyond the walls of the singleplayer map), walk around the map until you find an area where you can teleport back inside, such as the cured eye thingy in the upper right corner of the map.
This must be used on the main menu, unlike the rest of the options.
As it says, this resets your progress in the singleplayer mode, removing all unlocked stages/weapons/etc.
Walk near a level on the singleplayer map screen, then activate this. Depending on if it is already unlocked/risen/destroyed, it will move the level into its next state, allowing you to progress past it, regardless of whether or not you beat the level.
Honestly, I’m not far enough into the singleplayer to know what each of the weapons does, but this one apparently gives you a fast sword.
If I had to guess, I’d say that this might not obtainable through normal gameplay, since it’s located outside of the “Unlock All Weapons” cheat, but I can’t claim to actually know that, haha.
Again, I’m not sure what this does for you since I don’t want to spoil my singleplayer experience (beyond deleting my progress after messing about with these for a bit), but it replaces your bullet’s sprite with a shuriken.
When used inside of a singleplayer level, this quickly resets it without the need to return to the map screen.
When used on the map screen, it moves you to the nearest level. (Even levels that have not been unlocked)
Just like all weapon-related codes, I have very little clue what this does, beyond playing a “YOOOO!!!” sound effect.
Did you lose your curse after failing a level too many times (I definitely have!)? Well, here’s an easy way to get it back.
This replaces all enemies with harder versions and gives the player a nifty trail effect.
