One of my favorite childhood pastimes was activating debug mode on Sonic the Hedgehog 2 and completely breaking the game with random object spawns. It was a very chaotic kind of fun that you don’t get in platformers nowadays. Luckily, the remasters of the classic Sonic games in Sonic origins let you get back to that wackiness. Here’s a list of all Sonic Origins cheat codes.

A quick clarification before we get started: only Sonic the Hedgehog, Sonic the Hedgehog 2, and Sonic the Hedgehog 3 & Knuckles have cheat codes. There are no codes available to use in Sonic CD.

In all three games, cheating works the same way. On the game’s title screen, you input a particular sequence of button presses to reach the Level Select menu, then play a combination of sounds/songs in the Sound Test to trigger additional functions. When you enter a Sound Test code, you’ll hear a little confirmation noise. After that, just pick a stage, and you’re off!
