Mega Man series[edit]

The Game Boy versions of Mega Man were originally released in Japan under the Rockman World title. All Game Boy titles have an original plot. Each game in the Game Boy series, excluding Mega Man V, features four bosses from its corresponding NES version and four bosses from the succeeding NES game in the series. I.e: the Game Boy version of Mega Man III features bosses from the NES versions of Mega Man 3 and Mega Man 4. The Game Boy Mega Man V features an all new set of antagonists called the Star Droids, whose members are named after the planets of the Solar System.

Licensed games[edit]

In 1990, Hi-Tech Expressions (under license from Capcom) produced a DOS game based on the series simply titled Mega Man. It was followed by a second DOS game titled Mega Man III in 1992. Both games were released exclusively in North America. Despite their titles, neither games are ports of their corresponding NES counterparts, but original games. There was no PC game titled Mega Man II. Aside from handing the license to Hi-Tech Expressions, Capcom themselves were not directly involved in the PC games. Both games were programmed and designed by Steven Rozner.

In 1999, Chinese developer Strawberry Soft created a game very similar to Wily & Right no RockBoard: That's Paradise called Rockman Gold Empire.

In 2001, the Dreams Comes True corporation released under license from Capcom an original Microsoft Windows game titled Rockman Strategy exclusively for the Taiwanese market. The game features a group of new robots led by Apollo and Luna and named after the western Zodiac as well as a new ally named Fan, with the former being tricked into serving Dr. Wily.
