Total time played: 2.5 hours
Short review: More of the same with the only noticeable difference being the 3 rush adapters which give mega man abilities such as flying with a rocket pack. The game is much easier than its predecessors and was released 2 months after the much superior Mega Man X on the SNES

The 6th and final Mega Man game on the NES is the easiest of the bunch. None of the robot masters put up much of a fight. This game, like Mega Man 5 and Mega Man 4 is just ok. The only feature setting this one apart from the previous two games is its difficulty being turned way down and a few additional power ups. I had to beat the game but don’t plan on revisiting it in the future with so many other great Mega Man games to re-live.
I have no memories of this game as a kid as I didn’t play it until 2011 when I beat it for the first time. Like all of my other Mega Man pictures this one was lost when my laptop was stolen so I was forced to beat it a second time. The game isn’t bad, it is just a mediocre platformer that couldn’t surpass its predecessors.
