Unikong supports the Konami code entered as:

My own memory of entering the code was that the code was:

Was the classic Konami code just for Contra and then other games had a similarity or is my memory just that bad?

    Select is only necessary if you're playing a 2-player game.

    Note: Pressing enter actually isn't part of the code, but is nesscary to run it.

  • @RikerW, enter is part of the code ( in the Unikong version) because pressing the play button with the mouse after entering the standard Konami code does not work. It is also is part of the konamiArray variable in the source code Commented Apr 1, 2016 at 0:38
  • @epicTCK but enter also just presses whatever button is highlighted. I accidentally triggered it on the credits. :P

  • Thank you @Powerlord! I've wondered for years why people never include the select when describing the code. Finally makes sense.

1 Answer 1


The Konami Code

As stated on the Wikipedia page for the Konami Code the code is:


Start is appended to the end of the code in the game Contra.
However, the "Konami Code" referenced in Unikong appends an enter to to the end.

Using the Konami Code in Unikong

Upon pressing the keys corresponding to the Konami Code in the Unikong menu, the game will start with golden particles on the screen, playing the music labelled as "gameOverTheme and gameOverIntro" in the source code. The music could be described as a remix to Rick Astley's "Never Gonna Give You Up"

    I could listen to it all day. We should start a movement for the release of the song under public domain. Commented Apr 1, 2016 at 0:42
