Megaman 1 was released by Capcom in 1987 and has been a smash hit ever since. It has since expanded to dozens of games on several consoles. This year marks the 21st year anniversary of our beloved blue bomber.
What differentiates Megaman 1 from the other titles in the series is that it has only six robot masters - Cutsman, Gutsman, Elecman, Iceman, Fireman and Bombman. Also the games level of difficulty is higher since there are no energy tanks, no slide option and no powered up megabuster. Yes those things haven't been invented yet. Also once you hit the spikes, it spells automatic doom for our hero. In the next versions, you could escape the spikes alive when you take damage before hitting the spikes. You also cannot save the game or at least use a password. It too has not been invented yet.
I really like this game because it is so simple. Yet the game is so challenging. I recommend this to any Megaman fan out there.
