This is a compilation of the following games:

For the most part, the games appear to be pretty intact to their originals, so you can check the Game Hints pages (links above) for the originals for information on how to play and beat each of the games. This page will only make a few notes about the differences.

Arcade Games

If you just want to unlock the arcade games without playing through the other games, here’s a way to do it. See the note in the FAQ if these methods don’t work.

The game saves automatically when you clear stages. This has a few consequences; for one, you can’t choose to keep saves at certain points in the games (although you can use passwords for this purpose in most of them). For another, the game won’t unlock secrets until it saves (kind of makes sense, when you think about it), so even after you do the correct thing, you still have to wait for it to save before your efforts will be rewarded.

If you want to load a saved game, you use the “Load Game” door on the title screen, rather than the “New Game” door. If you want use a password, use either door, then select the desired game, then when you get to the title screen within the game itself, choose the “Password” option. Remember that Mega Man 1 and Mega Man 8 do not support passwords. You have to use saved games in that case.

Here is a list of what you must do to unlock everything. Right now this list was mostly tested on the PS2 version, but as far as I know right now, it is accurate for the others as well.

Note that you don’t actually have to “do” most of these; if you punch in a password that has the net effect, then allow the game to save (clear a stage, or whatever), the game will “notice” that the prerequisites are in place and unlock the appropriate item(s). Naturally, though, this doesn’t apply to Mega Man 1 or Mega Man 8, which don’t have passwords, or any item that you have to beat the game to unlock.

Thanks to Luke Sneeringer and Pellex for helping me gather info on these.
