Probably the best conversion of the classic Mitchell Corporation arcade game, Super Pang was released for the Super Nintendo in 1992. It was developed by Capcom and is arguably even better than the arcade original.

By the time Mega Man reached the Sony PlayStation in 1996 he’d undergone another make-over. This one mostly aesthetic – Capcom going for a different look and feel to the SNES games, and – it has to be said – not looking nearly as good.
The last of three Mega Man X games on the Super Nintendo, Mega Man X3 was published in 1995 by Capcom.
The last of the SNES Mega Man games, and second only to the Mega Man X series in terms of ‘best SNES Mega Man games’. It was first published in 1995 by Capcom.
Mega Man X2 was released for the Super Nintendo in December 1994, before Mega Man 7, which came in March the following year, and was proving to be the new standard-bearer for the series.
The final Mega Man game on the Nintendo Game Boy was Capcom‘s 1994 release Mega Man V, and it is arguably the best in the series.
Definitely the best of the Super Nintendo Mega Man games. From it’s dramatic intro, and the semblance of a plot, to the beautiful graphics, Mega Man X is arguably the best game in the entire Mega Man franchise.
Mega Man 6, released by Capcom in 1993, was the last of the Mega Man games on the Famicom/NES. The first Super Nintendo Mega Man game – Mega Man X – also came out the same year as this. Which is a bit of a shock when you compare the games side by side…
The fourth Game Boy Mega Man game – Mega Man IV – was published by Capcom in 1993 and continues the tradition of this tough, but highly playable, run and gun series.
