GENERAL HINTS AND PLAYING TIPS

Slow motion:
Hold Up on controller two.
Freeze opponents: Hold Up + A on controller two. Note: This has no effect on the eight robot Bosses from Mega Man 2 that are found after defeating the eight robot masters. The code will freeze you but the Boss will continue to attack.
Super jump: Hold Right on controller two.
Invincibility: Hold Right on controller two during game play. Find a pitfall and fall in. Sometimes if you wait a few seconds, you while hear the sound of Megaman dying and your health will totally disappear. Jump out of the pit and you will have invincibility as long as you do not collect any health capsules. While you are holding Right on controller two, you will have super jump and can fall into pits without getting hurt and be able to jump high.
Suggested opponent order: Magnet, Hard, Top, Shadow, Spark, Snake, Gemini, Needle, "Spark", "Shadow", "Gemini", "Needle"
Walk through pitfalls:
Hold Right on controller two. This allows Mega Man to walk through or jump out of pitfalls without dying. It is especially helpful in the Dr. Wily Robot level. Note: When jumping out of the pitfall, the jump is twice as large as the super jump. Note: This will only work if the pitfalls are fairly long.
Get Rush Jet immediately: Use the following trick to get Rush Jet without having to defeat Needle Man. You must first defeat Shadow Man. Then in the next stage, pause game play, highlight Shadow Man's weapon, and press Right. No weapon will be highlighted, but you will see Rush's icon above the next symbol. Press Start and you will be using the Rush Jet, except with no energy. Collect a weapon capsule in this form and then use any amount of its energy. Pause game play and you will see the Rush Jet is freely accessible from this point forward. You can also do a similar trick to get the Rush Marine, but you need to defeat Spark Man. You can only get the instant access for it if you are in Gemini Man's stage, since the Rush Marine is only usable in water.
Protoman's whistle: Press Start while Protoman whistles to hear the full tune. Note: You must press Start while Megaman is still controllable.
