    Link: First “accelerometer-based” iPhone game cheat discovered
    Description:: Looks like the days of “Up, Down, Up, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, B, A, Select, Start” may be over!

    One of the best things about game cheats is the usually unlikely series of tasks that must be performed in order to discover them. The iPhone, lacking physical buttons, offers game developers a fun new way to hide these game cheats – namely, the accelerometer.

    Cute.

    Though, based on the Contra reference I was hoping for a more elaborate cheat, like rotating the iPhone left and right (as in opening a safe with a combination lock)

    This cheat is more like when you died in Mario Bros 1, hold down A + Start, so you can start at the beginning of your current World instead of starting from World 1.

    What faulty memories folks have...
    It was:
    Up, Up, Down, Down, Left, Right, Left, Right, B, A, start
    <sigh>
    I miss the good old days sometimes...
