Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise: A Business Simulation Extravaganza


Released in 1993 for the Nintendo Entertainment System, Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is a unique and engaging business simulation game that stands out from the crowd. Set in the beloved Mega Man universe, the game allows players to take on the roles of iconic characters such as Roll, Dr. Light, Dr. Wily, Dr. Cossack, and Kalinka as they compete in a friendly game of property acquisition and development.


The gameplay of Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is deceptively simple yet deeply strategic. Players take turns moving their character around a game board, landing on various property squares. If a player lands on an unowned property, they have the option to purchase it using Zenny, the game’s currency. Once a property is owned, the player can charge other players rent whenever they land on it. However, the twist is that other players can also buy shares of the same property, allowing each owner to charge a smaller amount of rent.

The game board is filled with a variety of different property types, including residential, commercial, and industrial. Each property type has its own unique characteristics and rental rates. In addition, there are also special squares on the board that can trigger various events, such as raising property prices or the development level of a building.

The winning conditions of Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise can vary depending on the set rules. The winner may be the character with the most owned spaces, the most remaining Zenny, or the most developments.


One of the highlights of Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is its cast of playable characters. Players can choose from a variety of fan-favorite Mega Man characters, each with their own unique abilities and playstyles.

  • Roll: Dr. Light’s daughter and a skilled engineer. Roll can build houses and other developments at a reduced cost.
  • Dr. Light: The brilliant scientist and father of Roll. Dr. Light can invest in properties to increase their rental rates.
  • Dr. Wily: The evil genius and Roll’s nemesis. Dr. Wily can sabotage other players’ properties and steal their Zenny.
  • Dr. Cossack: A former ally of Dr. Wily who has turned to a life of crime. Dr. Cossack can build factories and other industrial developments.
  • Kalinka: A skilled Cossack robot and Dr. Cossack’s daughter. Kalinka can charm other players to get them to sell her their properties.


While Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise may seem like a simple game of chance, there is actually a great deal of strategy involved. Players must carefully consider which properties to buy, how much to invest in developments, and how to deal with other players.

One of the key strategies in the game is to form alliances with other players. By working together, players can pool their resources to buy more expensive properties and develop them into lucrative businesses. However, players must also be careful not to trust other players too much, as they may be plotting to betray them at the first opportunity.

Another important strategy is to diversify one’s portfolio. By owning a variety of different property types, players can reduce their risk of losing everything if one type of property becomes less valuable.


Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise was a critical and commercial success upon its release, and it remains a popular game among fans of the Mega Man series today. The game’s unique blend of strategy and nostalgia has made it a timeless classic that continues to be enjoyed by gamers of all ages.


Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is a truly unique and engaging business simulation game that offers a fun and challenging experience for players of all skill levels. With its charming characters, strategic gameplay, and nostalgic Mega Man setting, Wily & Right no RockBoard: That’s Paradise is a game that is sure to please fans of both business simulations and classic video games.
