3.2 - Gameplay
Gameplay in this game takes place in two areas: the real world and the Cyberworld. In the real world, you control Lan, who runs around talking to people and interacting with objects. The majority of play takes place in the Cyberworld, in which you control Lan's Navi, Megaman. When Lan jacks into an object connected to the net, control switches to Megaman.
Play as Megaman is similar to Lan's, but occasionally, Megaman will run into viruses, or other Navis, that want to battle. After almost every battle, your time, as well as your Busting Level (which measures your busting level on a scale from 1 to S) is displayed, and you get a reward of money, battlechips, or a health refill.
3.3 - Battle System
Occasionally, Megaman will have to battle viruses or another Navi. When
this occurs, the Cyberworld will disappear and a battle field will
appear. Half of the battlefield is for Megaman to move around in, and
the other half is for the enemy/enemies.
In the top-left corner is your health, and the health of your
opponent(s) is above or below them. Your main weapon is your buster,
which you use by pressing B. This slowly drains your opponents' health,
but the most useful weapons are your battlechips.
As soon as the battle starts, your chip screen will show up. Here, five
chips from your folder will appear for you to select. You can only
select chips with the same chips code (* is a wild card), unless they
are the same chip. Once you've selected your chips, select 'Run' and
you can use the chips against your enemies with A. When the custom
meter at the top of the screen fills up, press L or R to bring up the
chip screen again.
If you select a number of chips, then select 'Add', you'll go without
chips for one turn, but the next time you bring up the chip screen,
you'll have that many more chips to choose from. Example: if you select
three Recov10's and select 'Add', you'll have eight chips to choose
from on the next turn.
When you win a battle, the result screen will appear. This displays
your busting time, and also your busting level, which is how well you
busted the enemy on a scale from 1 to S. Last, you get a small reward,
which is either money, a battlechip that is specific to the virus or
Navi you just fought, or a health refill.
