A simple cheat was discovered by a redditor 30 years after the game was released! The cheat lets you continue where you lost your life by pressing a + start on the main screen.

I tried the cheat myself, and it works. However, it sends you back to the beginning of the world in which you died, meaning if you died in 2-3 and use the code, you'll start at 2-1.

Still far more handy than having to start all the way at 1-1 again.

Also after you beat the game, you can press the B button on the start screen to select which level you want to start on.
Again, my dad knew this in 1987 :P

Just wondering, how come everyone on reddit has never heard of it before? Are they dumb or something? An entire community never hearing of a secret that's been out for like 25 years...
