Mega Man is a game made for the NES. Mega Man is a robot built by Dr. Light. Dr. Light also created eight other robots to help him in his lab. However, Dr. Wily steals six of the eight other robots for his own evil use. These six robots are; Cut Man, Guts Man, Elec Man, Ice Man, Fire Man, and Bomb Man.

Megaman must traverse through these six stages and find the enemy at the end. Mega Man can learn an attack of that boss. The six stages all have different music and have a different feel to them graphic wise. In one of the stages, Mega Man finds a magnet beam in one of the stages, this becomes very important later on in the game. Each expert has his or her own order to go through, and since you have to have the magnet beam, you can go through stages after you defeat the boss. This won't be brought back until the fourth game in the series.

After progressing through the six stages, you now have to face Dr. Wily. Dr. Wily's castle is a four stage castle. In each of the four stages, you'll find one of the six robots you already defeated. Once you defeat Dr. Wily, you have saved the world.

You have a life bar with 28 units. Each enemy when you get hit takes off a different amount of health. When you reach zero units you die and go back to the beginning, the halfway point of the stage, or between the gates of the robot master. Falling into pits or touching spikes result in instant death.

This is really a fun game. Although you have to beat it in one sitting, it's a very fun game to play. This is just the beginning of Mega Man's adventures.
