MEGAMAN NEXT - INSTRUCTIONS

ACTION STAGE CONTROLS
USES
LEFT & RIGHT arrow keys This moves you left or right
UP arrow key This makes you jump
DOWN arrow key

If Megaman is on the ground, then he'll slide in whichever direction he's facing. Sliding gives you a much faster movement, but you can't shoot while doing it.

If you are airborne during a jump, then press down to cancel your jump and fall early. This is very useful for jumping tiny gaps when there's a ceiling above you. A good trick is to press up and down at the same time to perform repeated "bunny hops".

SHIFT key This key will charge the Mega-Buster. There are 3 levels to the charge. The higher the charge is, the bigger the shot is. Bigger shots cause more damage and hit much greater areas above and below megaman. A fully charged shot can hit things half a block above or below you. You can store the charge until the next time you press the spacebar to fire the Mega-Buster
SPACE BAR

Pressing the space fires the Mega-Buster. The type of shot depends on how much time you spent charging. Mega has automatic firing as long as the spacebar is held down. Against smaller enemies that don't have temporary invinciblility like most bosses, using automatic fire on them can easily cut them down. Especially ones that block, just fire on them until they drop their guard then move out of their attacks way when it nears you.

"D" key

This activates the "PUNCH DASH" once available.

This attack requires you to be on the ground either standing or running to activate. It makes you do a short dash with a fist out to hit foes. Once this hits an enemy it disappears. Since it's a special weapon it can go through defending enemies. Weapon Cost : 5

"F" key

This activates the "STEALTH BODY" once available.

This attack grants you temporary invinciblility so that you can run past enemies or stage obstacles. Weapon Cost : 10

"G" key

This activates the "SPREAD MISSILE" once available.

Spread Missiles go in 3 directions randomly which can cause them to be unreliable from a distance. However they do travel fast and can hit enemies throough their armor. Weapon Cost : 8

"H" key

This activates the "ARSENAL STORM" once available.

This dangerous weapon causes purple fireballs to randomly rain down from the sky. They can cut clear through lesser enemies and the attack lasts for a decent amount of time. You must be standing or running on the ground to activate this power. A good strategy for it's use is to activate it then run through the stage. Weapon Cost : 10

"C" key

This activates the "CIRCUITRY SHIELD" once available.

The Circuitry Shield creates an energy barrier around Megaman. Any foes within the area, whether defending or not, will be damaged repeatedly. Weapon Cost : 7

"V" key

This activates the "MIRROR FLASH" once available.

This is a support weapon. It creates a blast of light that deflects all enemy shots on the screen, very useful against bosses or stages that like to unload tons of ammo at you. This won't stop all attacks though. Weapon Cost : 7

"B" key

This activates the "TORNADO SHOT" once available.

Tornado Shot creates a whirlwind around Megaman hitting foes above him even if they are guarding. It'll continue to damage foes while they stand in the area. Megaman must be standing or running on the ground to activate this weapon. Weapon Cost : 7

"N" key

This activates the "CAMEO CANNON" once available.

This silly weapon fires a image of Megaman at foes. It does NO damage, but does push most enemies back a few steps. If you manage to shove them off a cliff then they'll fall to their deaths. Weapon Cost : 5
