To get Ashura, you must enter the level select and debug code. Then you must choose one of the emerald hill zone levels because the code only works in emerald hill zone (1 or 2.) When you start the level press B, you will be a ring,then press a four times,you will be four rings in a row going up or down,you then hold c and right for about 5 seconds,then you go back to the begining, keep pressing a until your the top of a waterfall. You may not see yourself but you're there. Now do the same thing as before, hold c and right for about five seconds. Then press b and you'll be Ashrua, or, green Sonic.

Unlimited 2 player vs. lives

To do this code, go to 2 player vs. and select Mystic Cave. Go and die on the spikes and a "Y" will appear next to your lives. Keep on hitting the spikes. There will be an -] next to your lives and you will have 9 lives. Now you can beat the other player because you can die and various signs appear!

Note: This is a glitch that does not work on all games and this only works on Tails.

Make your own Custom levels

Put on debug mode(seen in other cheat) and put items in places you want or add more foes and make your own level(say you chose casino night zone you can onely use things in that level, all the good stuff is in casino night so thats best for an obstical course with no foes) if you want eny ideas check my other cheat custom level ideas.

How to enter debug mode

Ok so when you boot it up (I used the sonic 2 android app) and select start game select no save mode, then after sonic runs past before "SEGA" goes away you want to tap s e g a in that order, if you did it right you will hear a coin sound then go to level select and in "sound test" type (in this order) 412619921124 and after all numbers tap play again if you did it right you will hear a coin sound, finally enter any level and tap where it sais "score" you will see a + and - button, use those to turn into, and spawn in every item, also in sound test when you play sound test 00 3 times you enter a secret menu:) hope it helped

Debug Mode

At the start,vs.and option go to option and at the sound test press a on all the numbers I put down 19,65,09,17 and you will hear a ring sound then go back to the main screen and hold a and c and press start.This will take you to the level select screen.Then go to the sound test on the level select screen and press a on theses numbers 4,1,2,6 this code will get you all the jewels and an the access to super sonic and the press a on the numbers 1,9,9,2,1,1,2,4 this is the debug mode this will enable you to transform into any thing in the stage after the code is enter highlight the stage you want to enter while holding a and c and press start hold them until the stage appears

Note 1: The super Sonic Code Will Work If You Get 50 rings or more and jump into the air to change the ring will countdown as a timer to 0 and when it do you will change back to the old sonic so make sure you get a lot of rings

Note 2: The debug mode is cool here are the button to use it B is to change and press A to pick the item you want to make a copy of and press c to make a copy

Hint 1: Debug mode can keep you from dying if you fall off a cliff press b and you will stop in mid air just pull yourself back up

Note 3: you will know the code is enter right because you will see a lot of 0 on the score board
