Mega Man (aka Rockman) is a platform game developed and published by Capcom in 1987 for NES. It is the first in the Mega Man franchise, which boasts a voluminous library of games.
Mega Man began his life as a humble cleaning robot named Rock (hence the Rockman moniker). He was created in a lab with several other robots, who eventually become his enemies when one of the scientists decides to use the creations for world domination. Volunteering for an upgrade, Rock then becomes Mega Man to try and stop the evil scientist and his mechanical minions.
Mega Man is a classic side-scrolling platform game. MM has been equipped with an arm cannon for taking out enemies. You gain points for enemies slain, and they will drop life and ammo refills, as well as the occasional extra life. The majority of enemies can be taken out with MM’s regular gun, while some are best handled after acquiring the powers of the 6 bosses. As far as which boss to go after, you have free choice. There is nothing linear that makes you do them in a specific order, you just pick your favorite and go with it. Once the boss is defeated, MM gains the power of their weapon (as well as a hefty point haul). Each one of them has a use beyond killing and could be the key to unlock a few level secrets. After gaining all of the weapons, you can then head off to face the evil scientist himself.
Mega Man was one of the first games I absolutely fell in love with as a kid. I thought it was so fun and so challenging (at the time), but rewarding when you finally finished a level. It’s one franchise that I have played as many of the games out of as I can. I recommend it: you need to play it.
