The demented Dr. Wily is at it again! This time he's stolen the experimental Time Skimmer and skipped into the future. Mega Man gives chase, but must battle through nine stages of relentless action before confronting Dr. Wily. Helping Mega Man is Rush, the robo-dog, who's handy in a jam and can even take the form of a mini submarine. Time is of the essence as Mega Man and Rush blast past waves of maniacal metal monsters on the way to underground lair of Dr. Wily. Once there, they must face Quint, the ferocious fiend from the future!
