In the game two scientists create eight different robots for human development and do other experimental works. One of the scientists kidnaps six of the robots and reprograms them to take over and enslave humanity. The two remaining robots were not suited for combat missions, but one of them, Rock, agrees to a retrofit in order to stand up to the evil scientist and his six robots. As a result, Rock becomes a fighting robot, Rockman or Mega Man, and sets out to fight evil.
The gameplay of Mega Man is classic action with a character that can jump, run and shoot endless bullets from his finger. Countless robotic mechanisms and of course, the robots themselves, acting as bosses serve as the enemies in the game levels.
Mega Man is quite a complex game, the enemies are very agile and attack in completely unpredictable ways. The game is very fluid and every movement of the character requires constant concentration. Constant shooting, dodging enemy attacks, a variety of weapons and mechanisms – things make Mega Man an attractive action game, loved by many players.
