History Of Super Alexa Mode
Super Alexa mode pays homage to the cheat codes that were available on some of the earliest Nintendo games that would make the games easier to play. The code was added by game developer Kazuhisa Hashimoto and was called the Konami Code.
The Konami code was added to a variety of Nintendo games and there were other similar variations of cheat codes added to Nintendo games over the years but the Konami code was one of the most well known cheat codes of the time.
The Konami cheat codes were popularized for it’s use in the Contra Game which was I guess what you could call the closest thing to a first person shooter game at the time. I still remember playing Nintendo as a kid and using the Konami Mode ( Super Alexa Mode Commands ) to beat the game long before Alexa was even invented.
Using the Konami code which has the same sequence of buttons as super alexa mode would give you extra lives in Contra to help you defeat levels and bosses.
Similar cheat codes were also available on some Nintendo game boy games at the time.
