DESCRIPTION

[ARCADE] Arcade PCB

Rockman - The Power Battle © 1995 Capcom.


Have you ever pictured a Rockman game that allows to skip all the platform elements and just grapple against the bosses? That's pretty much the main idea in this game! Choose from Rockman, Protoman or Bass and battle against classic bosses in the series. Features great 2-D graphics, solid control, and a nice use of strategy (since the right order of weapons will rid you of specific enemies in no time!).

TRIVIA

Rockman was released in September 1995 in the Japanese arcades. It was known there as the 32th video game made for this system.

The game is known outside Japan as "Mega Man - The Power Battle". Here are some known export releases:
"Mega Man - The Power Battle [B-Board 91634B-2]" (Asia)
"Mega Man - The Power Battle [B-Board 91635B-2]" (USA)

It was re-released on the new Capcom system (CPS-2) the same year as "Rockman - The Power Battle [Green Board]".

TIPS AND TRICKS

• Easter Egg : sometimes when you fight Shade Man, the background music is a version of the theme song from the Makaimura series. This seems to happen at random.
