Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

What the hack contains:

  • Minor text edits
  • Slightly altered title screen
  • The game now uses SRAM

The main feature of this hack is that the password system has been replaced with a save system. Whenever you complete a stage, the game will save the completed stage, your lives, E-Tanks, and the special items you obtain from Dr. Light.

RetroRain chose to call this hack Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily, because the Japanese version is called Rockman 2: Dr. Wily no Nazo, which means “The Mystery of Dr. Wily” in English. So, this patch is simply an update to the English Mega Man II that was released.

Probably the best "improvement" that could be made for this game

Reviewed By: eternalsage on 12 Nov 2014

Most “improvement” mods/hacks I find to be more “I like this, regardless of what anyone thinks, so its better now” type mods. Of course, I happen to agree with many of these types of mods, but that is not the point. This is not a “this game is too easy” type of improvement, but instead the addition of a much needed feature that was to expensive in the game’s original time to make it a worth while inclusion.

The ability to save your game instead of use those silly passwords is the only improvement that I can consider legit to such an otherwise amazing game. Anything else is a case of not understanding the game design. At least, that’s my opinion.
