Megaman X (USA)SNES
Mega Man X is a Super Nintendo spinoff of the classic NES Mega Man series. It embodied the awesome advancements we could expect in our favorite games on this new and powerful system. For those who may not know, Mega Man is a side-scrolling action shooter/platformer. You run and gun through many challenging and differently themed levels in the order of your choosing, each of them having a big bad guy at the end. After defeating the boss, you get his special weapon to use as your own. Every boss is weak against one other boss's weapon; knowing these weaknesses is key to defeating them and puts some emphasis on the order you play the levels. New to the X series were hidden powerups in the levels. You could find refillable energy tanks to recover health in a pinch, heart tanks to increase your health, and special suit pieces to boost various aspects of your performance - such as more powerful shots or better damage reduction. Mega Man X is one of my favorites in the entire Mega Man series. It's one of those games you can pick up and play for a just a few minutes and still have fun. It's quite a challenging game though, and will take some skill and dedication to beat. It's a great game, and anybody who likes action games will find a lot to love in Mega Man X.
