Defeated Metal Man before going to sleep in Fjerritslev. I'm emulating this on my PSP using NesterJ.
Defeated Wood Man (not Pierre).
After completing the long jump puzzle, I encounter Heat Man, who just kills me in three seconds. Game over. Thanks a lot, Capcom.
By the way, I'm currently playing it on FCEUX.
GET EQUIPPED WITH METAL-BLADE. Password [..O.. , OO... , .O..O , O..O. , .O.O.]
Argh, the game crashed with a horrible high-pitched noise!
I started playing from the beginning, quickly getting through the METAL MAN and WOOD MAN stages, and then making short work of FLASH MAN using the METAL BLADE. [.O.... , O.... , .O.OO , ..OO. , O.O..]
I completed the AIR MAN stage using LEAF SHIELD, platforming skills, and Mega Buster rapid fire for the boss.
The BUBBLEMAN stage was completed using a lot of METAL BLADE and careful jumping. I also used METAL BLADE on BUBBLEMAN himself.
The CRASH MAN stage was done with the help of LEAF SHIELD for the platform tracks, ITEM-2 to reach powerups, and the AIR SHOOTER for the boss.
HEATMAN was tricky, but METAL BLADE helped with the enemies, CRASH BOMBER helped with the destructable walls, and ITEM-2 enabled me to skip most of the horrible long appearing block section. The boss was killed using the BUBBLE LEED.
What is up with the QUICK MAN music? Weird bleepy sound.
TIME STOPPER (F) is key to stop the beams, AIR SHOOTER works against the mechs, and Mega Buster and TIME STOPPER works against the boss.
