    Columns Extra Magic Jewels
    There is a way to trick the game into giving you a second magic jewel. To do this you must set up the screen in a certain way. Have one row of the normal jewels stacked up almost to the top of the playfield. There must be vertical space for only two of the three jewels in the next block to come on the screen. Watch the "Next Block" preview box. When you see that the magic jewel block is next, get ready to quickly move it on top of your prepared stack. After the magic jewel eliminates the 'touching' color jewels, all of the remaining jewels will drop down as will the one magic jewel that was off the screen. This magic jewel will drop down and eliminate another group of colored jewels.

    Just entering the word easy mode in the password screen would work as a password. This difference it caused was it made certain lvl's much easier to complete like jumping certain spots in the game where you could easily lose in normal mode where no longer there. I am surprised no one ever thought about trying this code. I would always try and figure out codes and just enetered it one day when I was 12 years old. 16 years have passed and no one ever brought it up.

Glitches

  • Equip armor glitch

    It is possible to have armor equipped even if it is not in your possession...first make sure you have at least two pieces of armor in a characters possession..

    1. Go to the equip screen and highlight the armor you want to keep equipped.

    2. This is the tricky part...equip/unequip the armor...when it says ".....takes armor" press a confirm button and then QUICKLY press down to the next armor below it and equip/unequip that armor. You need to do it
    fast enough so that you see only a little change in the attack,defense, and/or agility from changing equipment.

    3. You'll know if the glitch worked because you won't be able to unequip the first piece of armor. Now you can give the armor to another character! Who says you can't have powerful equipment like the NEIMET on just one character?

    To cancel the glitch, simply equip another piece of armor over the affected armor slot.

    It may take a few tries to get the glitch working because the equipping/unequipping must be done very quickly.

  • No random encounters

    When examining the nearby area with the A (Talk, Examine) button, the next step you take is guaranteed not to take you into a battle. Keep hitting the A button (Talk, Examine) while you walk, so that after every step it will say ''There seems to be nothing unusual here.'' No random encounters will happen, but it will take quite a while to maneuver through dungeons this way.

Next, press start and hold B. The game will move in slow motion with no sound, so you can still move. Now, then go to another place and let go of B, then press Start. The music from the place where you first pressed B and Start now plays in this area! Cool glitch!

Phantasy Star III: Generations of Doom Cheats

Glitches

  • Improve late-game character stats

    A glitch in the game will allow you to make either Laya or Kara always act first in battle and be immune to physical attacks, as well as moderately improve the speed and defense of the rest of the party.

    The glitch is activated in Skyhaven, when changing the Legendary weapons into Nei weapons.

    1. Decide who you want to always act first and be immune to physical attacks - Laya or Kara.
    2. Remove all items from that person.
    3. Make sure everyone else has their appropriate Legendary weapon equipped (Orakio Sword, Miun Claw, Siren Shot, Laya Bow, Lune Slicer).
    4. Speak to the second from the left old man, who says "Nei is the word of ultimate power".
    5. Check your status screens. For the person who had no equipment, attack and defense should be in the 64,000 range, and speed in the 220 range. For the others, the attack, defense, and speed bonuses of the Legendary weapon they had equipped will be permenantly added to their base stats. (Unfortunately, none of the increases to the attack statistic have effect on damage dealt in battle).

    The only way the person with 64,000 defense will be hurt is from a Gnasher (who will do a whopping 4 damage) or from techniques (which are unaffected). She will always act first.

    There are 3 side effects which may appear alarming but are in fact harmless.

    1. Colours will be unusual - this will be corrected once you check your menu and leave Skyhaven
    2. Last person in line will be shifted out of place - this will be corrected once you leave Skyhaven, and the out-of-line person will not prevent you from moving
    3. Characters will be renamed - this is permanent but harmless.

  • Instant Victory

    You can win a battle instantly if you have the following situation: 1. Surprise the enemy 2. A technique bearing character with fewer TP then what a spell costs (ie 4 TP for a res spell) Instead of fighting, choose the "single player command" option and have that character try and cast a technique they do not have enough TP for. You will get a message that states something like "Not enough tech points", then instantly emerge victorious. Very helpful for when weak and facing several enemies. This will not work unless you surprise the enemy.

  • Skip Nial's Generation

    An escapipe glitch allows players to skip over Nial's generation directly to playing Aron. Aron will need to do some of Nial's quest, but it goes much faster and easier with Aron, thanks to his healing and access to the Aero Parts.

    1. As Rhys, before fighting the king of Cille, make sure Wren or Mieu has an escape pipe.
    2. After defeating the king, select Nial's route by marrying Lena. (Do not choose Maia as the glitch does not work for Ayn.)
    3. As soon as the cinema is over and you can move, go into your menu and use an escapipe.
    4. As Nial, you will warp back to Cille dungeon. Walk through it again (you will encounter only Chirpers). The king and Maia are waiting in the same place as for Rhys, defeat him once more (an easy task with full HP/TP and a stronger leader).
    5. Select Aron's route by marrying Alair. (Do not choose Laya because Adan will be unable to complete his quest.)

    At this point you play as Aron. The Sub Parts, Laya Pendant, Twins Ruby, and Mystery Star that Aron come with are "fakes" that do not work, so Aron will need to collect the real ones as Nial would have.

    6. Collect the Aero Parts as normal.
    7. Fly to the rebel hideout and pick up the Sub Parts.
    8. Go to Hazatak using the caves to Landen, Aquatica, then Aridia.
    9. Get Laya as normal.
    10. Go to Mystoke and get the Laya pendant.

    From this point on finish the game as normal.

Glitches

  • Avoid Party Members

    The game forces you to allow Tao, Ken, Lowe, Hans, and Luke to join the party before the first battle of the game. There is a way to avoid getting these characters in your party. To do this, when in town at the opening of the game there is a gate but two guards will stop you if you try to leave. There is a blond man in a purple vest near the gate and if you stand one space above him, you will eventually force him to step in the path of one of the guards. At this time you can run past and exit the gate and the guard will not be able to block you. This will send you to the first battle with only Max, making the game quite difficult. Also, even though you avoid taking these characters in your party, they will still speak during some of the cut scenes.

  • Random numbers aren't random

    Trying to get that spell to always hit or get that +4 on all your power up items, but you just can't seem to get the random to work for you? Well I discovered the counter to the random number generator is the number of steps taken.

    Say you save your game and use an item for a stat increase. Well if its not what you wanted, reload and take one more step befor using it. The pattern I noticed was something like 2, 3, 2, 3, 3, 2, 4. Thus taking 5 steps gave me my +4. This works for spells that don't hit very often. Fun with desoul.

It should be a switch places box. Hit it and you will see tails will have a permanent invincible circle around him. He will stay like this through the whole level, he will keep up with super sonic or even out run him. A very fun glitch for 2 players.

  • Infinite Lives

    First, enable the level select cheat and the debug mode which are available here. For this to work, you must choose Sonic and Tails as the players.

    After entering the codes, choose any stage from the level select menu(preferrably stage 1)

    As soon as you can move Sonic, hold down, and press C(don't let go of down on the D-pad). This will activate Sonic's spin; Tails will copy the Sonic spin also.

    Press the B button and Sonic will become the Debug cursor.(Tails will be locked in the sonic spin move).

    Press A until you(the debug cursor), displays an enemy sprite, like the monkey or that bee robot. Now that the debug cursor displays an enemy sprite, move the debug cursor to where Tails is, and repeatedly tap C.

    This will produce enemies where Tails is, and since Tails is locked in the sonic spin move, he will destroy the enemies. As Tails destroys enemies in this position, press C more until the score for destroying an enemy increases from 100 to 8000 to a 1up. Once you have enough 1ups, press B again to revert to Sonic.

    2.) At the bottom of the screen is a very unlikely secret that most of you won't suspect until reading this. Go to the bottom center part of this room and punch a few times. You'll eventually bust a hole in the floor leading you to the basement of Stage 5 and also Secret Route 2.
