GAME HINTS

SPECIAL FEATURES
This is essentially a port of the two arcade games, Power Battle and Power Fighters, into one Neo-Geo Pocket Color cartridge. The two adaptations play very much like their big brothers and in terms of game play are almost completely true to the originals. This cartridge is, however, missing a lot of the music from the arcades and of course the graphics are pared down, although this affects the sprites much more so than the backgrounds. The story and endings are mostly intact, although the graphics used during them are altered quite a bit and only Mega Man’s theme song is actually present.

Currently Battle & Fighters is available only in Japan. I assume it would have been translated had SNK not yanked their foreign market support...

Since the two games here are more or less identical to the arcades, you can pretty much consult the arcade pages for more information. The things which are different (such as the music) don’t really affect game play. I’ll note some insights here that I gained by playing this game, although it should be noted that since I was only able to play the arcades a small number of times, it could be all of the info on this page holds true in the arcades as well and I just never noticed.

SUGGESTED ORDER

The following lists what Robot Masters are weak against which weapons. By “weak” I mean the game gives a visual indication—in the Power Battle, the screen flashes white for a brief instant, and in the Power Fighters the entire action is paused for several seconds the first time you use the right weapon on a foe. Note that these weaknesses are probably identical to the ones in the original arcades.

PASSWORDS
There are no passwords or saved games that will allow you to restart a game in the middle (not that you really need them since a single play through the game is relatively fast). However the game does save your top scores.
WEAPONS
The following weapons are available in the two games. Some have been changed from their original forms (and some renamed as well) which is noted below.
