Super Alexa mode code – A brief History
You might not be heard of Konami code but one game we all have heard of and played in our childhood i.e., Contra.
Do you remember using cheat codes and passing the levels easily? Yes, I have used the code several times and those cheat codes were the Konami codes.
Let’s talk about the history of the Konami code, who developed the Konami code? When it was developed and how the Konami code became a part of all Nintendo games.
In the ’80s, Kazuhisa Hashimoto developed the Konami code, the then head developer of Gradius. This code provided his team members to test the game in all the levels with full upgrades.
Once the game was developed and was available in the market, several players discovered the code themselves and Konami’s code received several positive feedbacks.
Soon the game becomes more popular and even casual players start to play the games using cheat codes.
When asked about the presence of the Konami code in the game, Kazuhisa Hashimoto said that the code was left in the final version of the game by mistake.
This Konami code became a part of most of the arcade games, the most famous and popular game in this series was Contra. The use of code made it easier for beginner gamers to pass the levels without facing any obstacle.
Contra and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles are the most popular games using Konami codes.

Are you a Star-Trek fan? Who isn’t? Captain Kirk, do you remember him? The self destruct code used by Alexa is the same as that of destructing code used by him in the movie, Alexa, Code Zero Zero Zero Destruct Zero.
Once you say the self-destruct code, you will hear the countdown from 1-10 and then exploding sound of a ship. But it’s just a mirage, nothing happens actually.
However, if you love Star Trek and want to go nostalgic use this Alexa self-destruct code.
What does Alexa respond when you say self-destruct?
As I have said earlier nothing happens, but you will hear Alexa saying “Ok. Here we go. Three, two, one, Kaboom! Phew! We made it.”
