it is true this works
lots of people asked this wich is "What is the diffrent
bettween challenge mode and normal mode?"
The diffrence is that once you move froward in a level you can not go back to that area.
thats all i learned!

You unlock secret challenge mode by pressing start again and pressing L R L R X X Y Y again!

(Isn't it obvious?!)
