## Comment The Guardian Legend J Password (Score 1)261

The Guardian Legend NES game had a password system to save your progress. If you entered all Js as your password, you started in a strange location 80% of the way through the game with almost no health. I think the area was reachable in normal gameplay, but you needed a key that you didn't receive when using the password. (Therefore, you were locked in when using the password.) My friends and I spent much time wondering what it all meant.

Recently, zoogelio has reverse-engineered the password system and figured out how to get to off-map areas (he calls it the Lost Frontier, finding all sorts of glitches and weird places.
