Description

Mega Man X is a robot designed by Dr. Light to choose his own path in life. Years after he is created, Dr. Cain finds X and mimics his design to create a race of such robots called reploids. When the sigma virus infects these reploids, causing them to commit acts of evil, it is up to Mega Man X and his partner Zero (who is quite powerful, contrary to what his name implies) to stop it.

Trivia

In the original console version Ryu's (from the street fighter series) hadoken was included as a secret weapon which once found had to be trigered by the familar down-forward-fire movement in order to fire. For the pc version, they scraped the "secret" part of it, and gave it to you from the get-go, just hold down the fire button and let go (as seen in the screenshots section), however its nowhere near as powerfull as originally intended.
