Pro tip: Ninja Gaiden's sound test

Ninja Gaiden is a pretty good game that tells the story of ninja-guy Ryu through several cinematic cutscenes with the occasional gameplay section thrown in.

And you'll probably also notice that there are some pretty good sounds/music in the game. But, who wants to actually play the game to hear them all?

Not me.

So I use the game's built-in sound test when I want to hear the songs.

First, go to the title screen

Then while holding hold Down, Left, A, B, and Select, press Start.

Now you can check out all the sounds the game has to offer without actually getting good at it and progressing the storyline.

Though getting good at the game would be OK.
