The “Konami code” – up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, B, A, start – has been used in several games over the years, but the most notable one is the NES game Contra, where you could add 30 much-needed lives to your arsenal. Now, that code will give you a similar boost over at Google Voice Search.

Users who visit the voice-activated page can simply say, “Up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right” (no need to worry about the rest) and it’ll read “Cheat mode unlocked. Unlimited free Google searches.”

While the general search performance stays the same, it’s a fun little Easter egg, especially for those who grew up in the 8-bit Nintendo era.
