Hold Fire and power on the Atari 2600. Release the button after
approximately two seconds. In this mode, Superman will not
transform into Clark Kent, and the bridge will not explode,
although its pieces will still appear in the subway. Simply
capture Lex Luthor and his men and return to the Daily Planet
to complete the game. Note: This trick will not work on later
versions of the cartridge.
On later versions of the cartridge, when you drop to the phone
booth press Fire when you are at the same level of elevation as
a subway entrance and press Select. Wait for the screens to
cycle to a subway entrance and move the Joystick to put you in
the subway. Note: If you press Up it will look like Superman is
trying to fly but keeps getting yanked down by gravity. In this
state you can walk left or right or fly downward until you get
to the bridge screen where you will automatically regain your
powers without the bridge exploding.
Begin game play and move to the center of the screen to the
approximate location of the Daily Planet entrance. Press Select
and wait until the Daily Planet. If your character is aligned
correctly, move to enter the Daily Planet and win the game.
