Title: ROM Hacks: Roll-chan World GAMEBOY - Player Sprite hack RELEASED!

Update By: Zynk Oxhyde

In commemoration of Mega Man’s 29th Anniversary and beyond!

Zynk Oxhyde previously released ROLL-CHAN for the NES! Roll-chan is a player sprite hack which replaces Mega Man with his sister Roll. Today Zynk releases FIVE new player sprite hacks, but this time for the GAMEBOY, ROLL-CHAN WORLD!

Continue the super robot girl’s adventure in saving the world against the evil Dr. Wily, the mad scientist who, once more, attempts to fulfill his ambition of world domination.

Just like before in the NES, Roll is joined by her trusty pet robot cat Tango, replacing the role of Rush the robot dog. All sprites and custom sprite arts are all done by Zynk. The player sprites are structured differently for the Gameboy so adjustments were made to accommodate the more limited tile space.

There are note worthy changes made to some sprites, i.e. Dr. Wily's machines in Rockman World 2 are greatly improved (managed to make Wily into his normal size); some minor enemies got improved sprites (e.g. Mag Fly, Peterchy, Returning Monking). AND a new character, Quart, the future version of Roll who was kidnapped from the future and brainwashed by none other than Dr. Wily.

Fight, Roll! For everlasting peace!

I don't think there are enough synonyms for the word "excited" to describe just how excited I am to see this.

It's great to see Roll in Mega Man Games for the Game Boy. I liked how the hack creator used Rollchan World for Rockman World cause the original titles we got were the same name from the NES Games. All but six cause there were only five Megaman Gameboy games.

And suddenly, I have a reason to play the Gameboy titles outside of 5.  Thanks a lot!

Congrats Zynk! I think you're starting to run out of Mega Man games to insert Roll into. You've been doing Roll for so long, what are you going to do next if you run out!? ;D

Well there are some games that I'd like to role swap that is not Mega Man related for a change.   :D

This is cool, but Protoman > Mega Man > Roll IMHO
still I like the Roll Chan hacks for what they are, another character that's not MEGAMAN :D

Have you put Roll into Magical Doropie yet? It had some pretty nice cutscenes that would be primte for customizing.

Afterward, Whomp'Em and Bucky O'Hare seem ready to be Rollified. :)

D-don't give me ideas, man!  :D

I'd definitely look into Magical Doropie.

Anyone got an image of the Wily machines from Roll-Chan World 2? I'd love to play these, but after the internet shut me down for rom downloading, I've been incredibly hesitant on downloading roms, and I don't think the fact I technically own Megaman 2 GB on my 3DS would change anything.

Also consider the "updated" version http://www.romhacking.net/hacks/3049/

One of the things interesting about Magical Doropie is that there's actually three playable characters, tho the other two require some variation of the Konami Code to play as them. So in theory one could make a single hack that allows you to play as Classic Roll, MM8 Roll and Megaman. Which could even have their own unique cutscenes, I think... I seem to recall the cutscenes for other two characters playing out from their perspectives, but I could be wrong.

I... did not know that about Magical Doropie.  Those extra costumes are really neat!  Doropie's beret costume is especially cute!

Too bad neither Doropie-to-Megaman hack takes those into account.  Boy howdy, what a mess!

Oh, a female sprite hack?  The 4channers are going to be angry over this one.  >:D

Kidding aside though, as a fan of mega man this looks pretty neat.

I dunno about that, DocDim... but I will say there's been some interesting discussion over why these hacks exist over on (Protodude's) Rockman Corner, heh heh heh.

Noice! Rockman Corner featured it too. There's also a video by Mugenmidget on Twitch playing all 5 games straight.

Impossible, there's still megaman legends 1 and 2. And maybe build a rollchan.exe playable for the exe series, 1 through 6?

The hype of main character sprite hacks of Megaman games is intense.

Thanks for your work on all of these! I've loved Roll since I was young so I'm really happy to see her getting some love.

Thanks Zynk, excellent job as usual! :) I also made some playthroughs:

RW1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y4Pz341jLHo
RW2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pSsbW-Ihl44
RW3: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=V-Y_RQr6UJM
RW4: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Tkez7VXaeXY
RW5: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4aXE3C5psyI

By the way, I'm curious about something and have a question for you.

If you plan to ever make Roll-chan 7 someday, how would you do that intro part where Auto gives Megaman the wrong helmet? Since Roll wears no hat/helmet, how would you get around to that? :P
