The Konami Code has become an iconic piece of videogame culture. To many, this simple and arbitrary string of commands evokes memories of exciting retro gaming cheats, bonuses and easter eggs. Whilst the Konami Code does still show itself from time to time in modern videogames (Bioshock infinite’s “1999 mode”, for instance, could be unlocked early with a cheeky Konami Code input), it most predominantly featured in 8-bit and 16-bit gaming. But does this mean that the Konami Code is dying? Not at all, because it has found another medium in which to dwell – the internet!
There are a growing number of webpages where entering the Konami Code can reveal fun hidden extras. Geek & Hype’s website, for instance, takes you to an awesome video about the “All Your Base Are Belong To Us” meme, whilst typing the code (followed by enter) on Gamespot UK takes you to the Contra page – the game that popularised the Konami Code itself! A particularly unusual Konami Code-compatible site is http://milliondollarcu.be/ - see if you can figure out how to make it work!
