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.
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.
Both Mega Man II and Mega Man III were published in 1992. Capcom was really knocking them out for the Game Boy in the early 1990s.
Mega Man 4 was published by Capcom for the Nintendo Famicom in 1991.
Other than a new intro sequence (still not making much sense having been badly translated into English), a new set of bad guys, and some newly-designed levels, there’s not a great deal different in this game to what has preceded it.
In essence: a cut-down version of the first Mega Man game, but with graphics made to fit the monochromatic Game Boy. First published in 1991 by Capcom.
The 1988 sequel to Mega Man, Mega Man 2 is more of the same rock-hard platforming and shooting action on the Nintendo Entertainment System (aka the Famicom).
Your six major protagonists this time are: Bubble Man, Air Man, Quick Man, Heat Man, Wood Man, Metal Man, Flash Man, and Crash Man. And – as usual – each has their own themed level which you can choose from in the opening menu.
Known as “Rock Man” in its native Japan, Mega Man is a Nintendo Famicom game developed and published by Capcom in 1987. It is the beginning of the long-running Mega Man series.
What the first Mega Man did was establish a style of its own – for both gameplay and graphics.
