Personal review
Game description from Romhacking.net:

The first thing you will say (besides 'hey, that Doropie chick is a hottie') is 'God damn, this game is a lot like Megaman'. Well, that's because it is. A lot. Especially in the 'run and jump and shoot at things' department. There are some notable differences of course, the biggest being the fact that Megaman was never this difficult. In the Megaman games you could, say, regain your health sometimes. And if you died, you wouldn't start over at the beginning of the level, every damn freakin' time. And you have different weapons at the outset of the game, though all you'll use are the bouncy ball and Rush. Err not Rush, I mean the broom. Haha, how silly of me. Oh! This game was released as The Krion Conquest here in the States, but it had a lot of stuff cut.

Editor note
US release was initially announced as Francesca's Wand before being titled The Krion Conquest.

An obscure but still spread internet joke is to call this game "Megan Man" because of a typo in the the official 1990 WORLD OF Nintendo buyers guide showing "Megan Man 3" and its similarities in game play to the megaman series.

Catalog number for the Japanese Famicom version is definitely VIC-VF (visually confirmed, it is printed on the cartridge lable) and not VIC-VP. But many sites on the web report it as VIC-VP
