Stop Enemies from Firing
On most revisions of Galaga, there's a trick that stops enemies from firing at your ship. In Stage 1, kill all aliens except the two bees in the bottom-left corner. Allow the bees to dive down and shoot at you, while dodging their shots. After around 15 minutes or so, the bees will continue to drop down, but they won't fire. Let them drop down another 5 or 6 times, then kill them. After all this, enemies will not shoot at you for the rest of the game.
Contributed By: Colin.
Wait until one of the top ships(the green ones that take two shots to kill) comes down and fires off a tractor beam(the beam that can capture your ship). Let it capture your ship. Now, wait until it swoops down again with your ship behind it. Simply kill the head ship(the green one), and it will lose your ship. Your ship will then lock on to the side of your current ship, giving you two ships to play with at the same time! Now, be careful. Not only will both ships be firing at you after your ship gets captured, but if you accidently shoot your captured ship, you'll destroy it. Also note, this will cost you one life, but will definately make the Challenging Stages, and perhaps the game itself, a little easier to play.
Note: This works in all non-bootleg/hack versions of Galaga, as well as most of the sequels and Arranged Mode in Namco Classic Collection Vol. 1.
Contributed By: JosephLithius.
Invoke the System Check
When a game session is not active and the game is just running through the demo, at the exact moment that a Galaga releases its tractor beam to try and take up your ship, try to move the ship out of the way. If done correctly, you'll be able to control the ship for a short while - without even inserting a coin - until, eventually, the system check screen appears.

Golden Axe Cheats
Restoring full health in any bonus stage
This glitch only works in a two player game. After defeating a boss in a stage and entering into the bonus stage where the little elves steal your magic potions, ignore such and get as far away from them as you can. Then begin hitting your fellow character without knocking their character down all the way until their health is gone. If you got enough time your friend may also do the same to your character. Remember NOT to kill off each other's characters, just deplete your HP before the bonus segments ends. If done correctly the next stage will feature your characters at full health. This works best when both characters have at least one square of health left to make things easier.

Enter service mode, then quickly turn it off and on once so that an alignment grid appears on the screen, hold down both start buttons and toggle service mode on and off quickly again so that grid remains on the screen. Next move the stick up, left, down, and right four times each to make a hidden message appear onscreen.

Pac Man's parking space
At the beginning of every level/life, Pac-Man is just underneath a T-shape. The right-hand corner of that T is a parking space. If the ghosts aren't chasing you closely, you can pull into that space and the ghost will not find you. You can leave it sit for hours and they won't find you. It gives you a chance to grab a sandwich, take a bathroom break, etc.

Phantasy Star II Cheats
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.

Item Duplication glitch.
This will allow you to dupe any item in the game, even the Nei items.
Anna can have 2 Nei Slicers, Rolf, and Kain no longer need to fight over the Neimet. It even helps when you need to buy knives, or multiple armors.
BEWARE THIS TRICK WILL OVERWRITE INVENTORY ITEMS USE WITH CAUTION!
1. Make sure one person has at minimum 9 items and a max of 15(just use antidotes as they are cheap). DO NOT KEEP IMPORTANT ITEMS OR VALUABLE EQUIPMENT ON THIS CHARACTER DURING THIS PROCESS! DO NOT KEEP ITEM YOU WANT TO DUPE ON THE CHARACTER WITH ANTIDOTES!
2. Go to the item you want duped, and press "C". A menu will pop up " use" "giv" "tos". Now back out until you can select another character.
3. Go to the character with the antidotes press " C" on next, and then go up to next again, but this time press "B" and "C" Simultaneously and you will see the "use" "giv" "tos" menu.
4. Select "giv" and give it to the person with the antidotes.
5. Congrats! Keep doing this until you no longer see an Antidote in your inventory.
Now you can sell all those extra weapons and armor for massive profit.

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.
Contributed By: H Hog.
In battle, get all of your team members KO-ed except for Nei. Then get Nei to cast Nasak and she should KO herself. Then, your characters will turn invisible and you can walk around dungeons freely.
(This works in all version of PS2)

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!

Pseudo Super Sonic
In Oil Ocean Zone Act 2, if you manage to take a hit and end up landing in one of those green-and-gold checkered cannons, you'll fall right out, but you'll be moving at twice your normal speed as well as jumping twice your normal height(with twice as much gravity). In Oil Ocean Zone, Act 2, near the first set of pop-tops and cannons. Just jump into the semi-hidden bed of spikes on the right and land in the cannon.<p />Note: Moving at twice normal velocity can often get you stuck in a wall. Also, this wears off if you Super Spin Dash or Spin Dash. It also only lasts for that Act.
Normally, when you turn into super sonic you lose tails behind you all the time.
Well, after you put in the debug cheat and have started a level (preferrably Emerald Hill), turn yourself into a box and place it somewhere on the floor WHILE you are super sonic. 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.
