Mega Man 2

"He's Back! And this time the evil Dr.Wily (once the supreme power in the universe) has created even more sinister robots to mount his attack. But as MegaMan, you've also grown in power and ability. Can you save mankind from the evil desires of Dr.Wily ? Each of the eight empires is ruled by a different super-robot. You must defeat each enemy on his own turf, building up weapons as you go. Only after all are destroyed will you go head-on with the mastermind himself, the evil Dr.Wily. But be alert, MegaMan, Dr.Wily has powers his creations did not! Civilization relies on your skill and courage - confident that you, MegaMan, will stand tall in the end!" story from the game-box

"In the year of 200X, a super robot named MegaMan was created. Dr.Light created MegaMan to stop the evil desires of Dr.Wily. However, after his defeat, Dr.Wily created eight of his own robots to counter MegaMan." story from game-intro (notice how it does not really correspond to MM1's story + Dr.Light was named Dr.Wright ;-)

Second game of the Mega Man serie, with better graphics. Also has nearly all the classic Mega Man "things" : 8 robots (not 6 anymore), 3 "tools" (not 1), new design for life and weapon energy tanks, special "Wily Castle" at end of game with teleporter room (where you must re-kill all 8 robots). This game also introduces a nice feature: the passwords (some passwords provided below - for those using the NESticle emulator, I have some saved games available, see below too). Oh, and the game has a little intro... (scrolling from bottom to top of building)

He throws... bubbles
Use Metal-blades or Quick-boomerangs to beat him.
weapon : bubble-lead


He blows you away with many little air-whirls
Use Leaf-shield to beat him.
weapon : airshooter (also gives you item #2)


Small nervous guy...
Use Time-stopper (and then Atomic-fire or Airshooter) to beat him.
weapon : quick-boomerang


He fires napalm and if you come close he sets himself on fire (kinda)
Use Bubble-lead to beat him.
weapon : atomic-fire (also gives you item #1)


He hides behind his leaf shield
Use Airshooter to beat him.
weapon : leaf-shield


Jumps around throwing metal blades all around
Use Quick-boomerangs to beat him.
weapon : metal-blade


He does "freeze" the time to shoot you
Use Metal-blades to beat him.
weapon : time-stopper (also gives you item #3)


He fires some kind of missiles
Use Airshooter to beat him.
weapon : crash-bomber


  • Because of the weapons needed to kill each of the robots, I would recommend playing the levels in the following order :
      1) Airman, 2) Crashman, 3) Quickman, 4) Metalman, 5) Bubbleman, 6) Heatman, 7) Flashman, 8) Woodman
    (note that I played them in the order of the select screen [B,A,Q,H,W,M,F,C] to make the NESticle saves and it went fine too)
  • I really recommend you play Heatman's level only if you have item #2 (the jet) because there is a TOUGH jumping sequence over deadly lava
  • Try to have Crash-bomber weapon when you play Flashman's levels (lot of hidden stuff)


Dr.Wily's Castle


Saved games
(for use with NESticle)

Castle Start
Laser Puzzle
Robots Revenge
Wily Again

To use a saved game rename it to ROM-name.st1-9.
Ex: d/l 'Megaman2crr.st6' and rename it to 'Megaman2.st6'



Access to Dr.Wily's castle :
A5 B2 B4 C1 C3 C5 D4 D5 E2


Nice (and easy to kill) dragon-robot. Stand on the higher step (as showed on picture) and use Quick-boomerangs. If you fall back quickly jump up again.

Flying Blocks

The blocks come out of the walls 2 by 2 and then move toward you, just shoot them before they reach you.


Jump on this "thing", and hit him in the head with Quick-boomerangs.

Laser Puzzle

This one is harder, you must destroy the laser-canons (blue-red half-circles) using Crash-bombs. Be careful, you only have 7 crash-bombs, only destroy walls if there is no other way (middle-left and bottom-right walls only)

Robots Revenge

Nice teleporter room (classic, seen in all MMs except MM1), you must kill all 8 robots again.
Here is who's where :
Air Metal


Dr.Wily is here, he has installed his UFO on some kind of robot again.
  1. use Metal-blades to destroy his protection
  2. now use Quick-boomerangs to destroy the robot
  3. Wily gets away...

Wily again !

  1. Wily is back, he jumps out of his "UFO" and transforms into some kind of "freak" :-)
  2. Use Bubble-lead to hit him when he comes down
  3. It was not Dr.Wily, but a remote guided robot... Wily surrenders.


The End

MegaMan walks toward us with some nice weather effects... Mega Man removes his helmet and disappears.
