Rockman: The Power Battle (CPS2, Japan 950922)


Rockman - The Power Battle (c) 09/1995 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. 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!).

- 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.
