Mega Man 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System
One of my favorite games of all time is the Mega Man series. Mega Man was created by Capcom to be released in various platforms.
In this article, we are going to talk about the Mega Man 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System. This game is the second installment in the franchise.
The game takes place in the year 2004 (hey, this game was created in 1988). Humans and robots were peacefully co-existing when Dr. Wily has made some robots go rogue, killing innocent people in the process.
Dr. Light doesn’t want this to happen, so he created Mega Man to combat these rogue robots.
Mega Man is set out to defeat all of Dr. Wily’s henchmen and ultimately, defeat the evil doctor for good (at least in this game).
In Mega Man 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System, the gameplay is quite similar to that of the first installment with a few notable differences. The first difference is that Mega Man can now carry an energy tank. Basically, what the energy tank does is that you can replenish Mega Man’s health by using it. Of course, you should fill it up by picking up various health items at any point in the game.
Another notable difference in the game is the inclusion of a password system. Whenever you complete a stage, there will be a password generated for you. If you want to go out to do some errands, for example, and you want to continue the game afterward, you just have to input the password and you should continue where you left off.
There are 8 rogue robots you must defeat before you can reach Dr. Wily. These 8 robots are:
- Bubble Man
- Metal Man
- Quick Man
- Air Man
- Crash Man
- Flash Man
- Wood Man
- Heat Man
Each of these robots has a weakness and which one you choose to beat first will ultimately decide how the game’s difficulty is. Also, whenever you go to a specific boss, the stage will take on the theme of that boss. So, if you’re going to fight Heat Man, for example, you will be in a Heat or flame-inspired stage.
Every time you beat a certain boss, you will receive their own weapon specialty. The new weapons that you will acquire will be the weakness of other bosses. So, if you’ve beaten Heat Man and got his weapon, you will defeat Wood Man with ease (since it is Wood Man’s weakness).
After defeating all of the 8 rogue robots, you will then march on to defeat Dr. Wily. The final stage will be divided into six levels that a player must complete in a linear fashion. All of the weapons you’ve acquired prior to attacking Dr. Wily will become of great use to you, so use them to your advantage.
The Mega Man 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System is an incredibly fun platform shooting game.
I highly recommend the Mega Man 2 Game for the Nintendo Entertainment System for those of you who want to know the origin story of Mega Man.
