Back of Box - NES (US):
It's MEGA MAN versus the powerful leaders and fighting forces of Monsteropolis - that strange multi-layered land of robot-like Humanoids created by the wrongly-performed experiments with human beings by Dr. Wily.
The Official Nintendo Player's Guide (1987) :
MEGA MAN - the chosen defender of the human race. For he dares to single-handedly penetrate Monsteropolis' seven separate societies to stop the rapid expansion of strange misrepresentations of humans.
MEGA MAN's goal is monumental. He must infiltrate seven separate heavily-guarded empires. By himself, he must break-down and destroy the followers of empire leaders: Cutman, Gutsman, Iceman, Bombman, Fireman, Elecman and Dr. Wily.
The action involves MEGA MAN, armed only with laser beam weapons, encountering strangely-configured Humanoids. They're atop, in and out of fortified prison-like structures strengthened with thick walls. Below icefields. Hidden amid gun turrets imbedded in concrete uprights, even in subterranean passages under icefields. WOW!
Will you and Mega Man penetrate the seven separate societies of Dr. Wily and preserve the human race? You're in control!

TROUBLE IN MONSTEROPOLIS
The evil Dr. Wily's Humanoid robots are taking over Monsteropolis. They're lying in wait around every corner--hidden in the gun turrets, imbedded in concrete uprights, and lurking under icefields in subterranean passages. They are not human, but they have the power to destroy the human race. And that is their every intention!
GAME PLAY: As Mega Man, you must face six powerful foes on a mission through Monsteropolis--a multi-layered land of seven empires. Armed only with a laser gun, you must use your wits! Check your power on the Mega Meter. Get a power boost with Energy Capsules. A Yashichi gives you 100,000 points! Time your jumps and leaps just right, and you can scale walls in the Iceman Stage. Out-duel a foe to acquire totally new firepower. You will need this for the ultimate hattle when you face Dr. Wily in Stage Seven. But before that, you must conquer the scissor-headed Cutman, the chilling Iceman, the flame-throwing Fireman and more!
