With its near-perfect blend of action, challenge and audio-visual excellence, Mega Man became one of the NES' biggest hits, spawning multiple sequels and spin-offs on various platforms. Taking place in the year 20XX, the well-meaning scientist Dr. Wright (later known as Dr. Light) has created seven robot laborers programmed for use in industrial situations. Unfortunately, all but one, named Mega Man, went buggy in the process. Taking advantage of the situation, Wright's assistant Dr. Wily steals the robots and reprograms them for his own evil intentions of conquering the world. Left with only one functional robot, Dr. Wright sends Mega Man after the six renegade robots: Cutman, Elecman, Gutsman, Iceman, Fireman and Bombman, each inhabiting a level themed after their intended occupation and powers. Your goal as "the blue bomber" (as he would later come to be nicknamed) is to progress through each of the six levels in whatever order you choose, braving dangers, destroying foes and eventually destroying the boss within. Upon their destruction, you'll gain the robot's trademark weapon, which can be used to exploit weakness of another boss. ~ Geoffrey Douglas Smith, All Game Guide
