Gradius III AND IV

Gradius III ~Densetsu kara Shinwa~

Full Power Up

  • UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, X, O
    ( Gives you all weapons, Shield and Laser)
  • UP, UP, DOWN, DOWN, LEFT, RIGHT, LEFT, RIGHT, Square, Triangle
    (Gives you all weapons, Shield and Double)

You can use this cheat a number of times:-

Easiest - All the time

Very Easy, Easy, Normal - only stage + 1

Hard, Hardest - Not at all

Cube Attack

  • To get Cube Attack you have to reach to Stage 9, then it is activated on the Title page in Extra Mode

Extra Editing

  • When you complete 1 loop without continuing, or 10 hours play time, EXTRA EDIT appears in the EXTRA MODE.
    When you complete 1 loop without continuing with the EXTRA EDIT, or 20 hours play time, more equipment is added to the EXTRA EDIT. This means you can select weapon combinations that you usually cannot have.
    (i.e. Spread Bomb in the Edit selection)

Hidden Stages

  • To play the first stage of Gradius and Salamander, play Gradius III until you get to the end of game final boss, he shoots three electric balls at you, don't dodge them, touch the middle ball to warp into Gradius world or touch the lower one to warp into Salamander world. Once you've entered one of them you can play them again by going to Extra Mode in you menu and select Gradius or Salamander.

When I say 10 and 20 hours play time is does not mean leave your PS2 on over night because that does not work, it has to be PLAY TIME.
