Mega Man: The Power Battle (CPS1, Asia 951006)


Mega Man - The Power Battle (c) 10/1995 Capcom.


Have you ever pictured a Mega Man game that allows to skip all the platform elements and just grapple against the bosses? That's pretty much the main idea in this game! Choose from Megaman, Protoman or Bass and battle against classic bosses in the series. You have to fight a total of 18 Robot Masters, taken from the first 7 Megaman games from the Nintendo Famicom. Features great 2-D graphics, solid control, and a nice use of strategy (since the right order of weapons will rid you of specific enemies in no time!).

- TRIVIA -


This was never released in the US or Europe, although it has been imported there, so there's only the Japanese version and the Asian version. Known in Japan as "Rockman - The Power Battle".


Sony Records released a limited-edition soundtrack album for this game (Rockman - The Power Battle : Arcade Gametrack - SRCL-3451) on 01/12/1995.


- UPDATES -


The Asian version has English text and character names, but doesn't have the voice samples the Japanese version has.


- TIPS AND TRICKS -


* Easter Egg : sometimes when you fight Shade Man, the background music is a version of the theme song from the "Ghosts n' Goblins" series. This seems to happen at random.
