It's MEGA MAN versus the powerful leaders and fighting forces of Monsteropolis -- that strange multi-faceted land of robot-like Humanoids.
Brilliant scientist Dr. Light conceived the construction of fully-operational human-like experimental robots to perform specific everyday duties. Dr. Write, and his assistant Dr. Wily, encouraged with their very first near-human robot -- MEGA MAN -- proceeded to develop six additional Humanoids, all programed to perform prescribed rituals:
Cut Man: Designed to function as a lumberjack. Powerful saw-toothed scissor-like instrument protrudes from head, capable of gnawing through giant forest lumbers.
Guts Man: A bulldozing character capable of lifting and transporting huge boulders.
Ice Man: Impervious to chilling sub-zero temperatures, capable of human like performances under extreme climatic conditions.
Bomb Man: A real "blaster" as a heavy duty laborer who uses intensely powerful explosives to clear lands for Dr. Light's construction projects.
Fire Man: Melts and molds metals with flame-throwing torch flaring from atop his head.
Elec Man: Dr. Light's electrifying creation -- planned for conducting electrical operations -- even supervising nuclear power plants.
But, with the exception of MEGA MAN, all of Dr. Light's near-human robot experimentation went awry. Assitant Dr. Wily turned disloyal, re-programming Dr. Light's humanoids, now bent on destroying opposition so Dr. Wily could control the world and its resources.
Resisting re-programming, MEGA MAN is chosen the defender of the universe and its inhabitants. MEGA MAN dares to single-handedly penetrate seven separate empires of Monsteropolis, eliminating the leaders and followers of these sovereignties.
Get ready for some very exciting challenges!
