Mega Man's second appearance on Game Boy features a mix of stages taken from Mega Man 2 and Mega Man 3 on the 8-bit NES. The Blue Bomber will confront the following eight robot masters while pursuing evil mastermind Dr. Wily: Metal Man, Crash Man, Air Man, Wood Man, Needle Man, Magnet Man, Hard Man, and Top Man. As with previous games, Mega Man will receive a robot master's signature weapon after defeating it in a one-on-one showdown at the end of each themed level. Mega Man II features the handheld debut of a mechanical canine companion named Rush, who will be instrumental in helping the hero navigate some of the stages. Rush can be used as a spring-loaded platform, a submarine, and as a hoverboard. A grid-based password system lets you save your hard-earned weapons and energy tanks before turning off the system.
