User guide

You play as KillerMan from MegaMan Battle Network 6 and fight off waves of ghosts and viruses to try to get a high score.

The game features stages where you fight sets of viruses and an endless mode where you test how long you can last against an endless wave of ghosts and viruses.


Each stage has a ghost busting stage and a virus busting stage.

During the ghost busting stage, ghosts randomly spawn in large groups until you clear the required amount of ghosts. The kill goal is indicated in the bottom screen.

After clearing the ghost busting stage viruses begin to spawn, in addition to smaller groups of ghosts. Viruses are much tougher than ghosts and require more hits destroy.
