To feel the power is to play the game
Set in the 19th century, strong believers of legends, myths and superstition search for fame, fortune and glory. One legend above all is sought after by many, a treasure which can make any dream come true. Believers from all over the world set out to search for this treasure, and are forced to fight against one another in pursuit of the legendary Power Stone.

It is interesting to note that there is a weapon to be obtained from Stone Man in Mega Man 5 called Power Stone. Whether or not Capcom named the game after this weapon is unknown.
Gameplay involves selecting a character and then proceeding to battle the other characters, one at a time, in various locales. The fighting is three dimensional and includes the ability to use special attacks as well as pick up and fight with such objects as tables, chairs, rocks and bombs.
During battle, "Power Stones", resembling gems of different colors, appear in the arena. If a character collects three Power Stones, he/she transforms into a more powerful version of him/herself. The character will then be able to use one of two super special attacks. One is generally a massive long-range power attack and the other is a grab or close-range move.
The powered-up mode only lasts until the power bar is fully drained, during which the special attack can be executed (which completely depletes the power bar) or launch some form of projectile (which only uses a small portion of power). Each match continues until the life bar of one of the two characters fighting is depleted.
How to Play
The Buttons are simple to use but difficult to master. An 8-way joystick is used to move your fighter accompanied by 3 buttons to jump, kick and fire.
