Mega Man: The Return of Wily

Hack of Mega Man

Description:

Some of you may have heard about me working on this hack for a while. And I’m proud to announce that it’s finally finished!

So anyway, here’s the story: Wily has returned to try to achieve World Domination again! He used the same 6 robot masters that he used in his first attempt to destroy Megaman. Only this time, they have no weaknesses! (Or do they?)

This hack features completely redesigned levels, graphics and palette changes, enemy AI changes, and even some custom music! Be careful though, this hack is a lot harder than the original Mega Man, so save states are strongly recommended.

So good luck and have fun! ;)

Terrible Level Design, Style Doesn't Cover it up!

Reviewed By: TheLuigiLightning on 25 May 2015

Basically, everything I said for Rockman Claw applies here; tons of ASM hacking, class F level design!

If I assumed that everyone has read my Rockman Claw review, I wouldn’t really have to say much, but for those who haven’t, I’m going to summarize my position in a nutshell;

Both of these hacks try to implement a lot of stylish ASM hacking, but really fall extremely flat on the level design. It’s unplayable, and that’s because the enemies are in horrible positions, and you don’t have the right kind of terrain to fight them.

The swooping guys in this hack in Gutsman’s… I’m sorry, “Classic” stage are the most annoying thing, especially because they come on screen in the most impossible of times! Believe it or not, I actually got pretty far in this stage, but as soon as I got to the cloud, it was literally impossible to shoot the swooping guys. Try all you want, but you will see very quickly it’s completely unfair.

But you’re probably thinking, “just go to another stage!” No, you can’t! You have to fight them in a certain order, so you are OBLIGATED to do this stage first! Unacceptable.

Making people have to do the stages in a certain order defeats the wonder of what made Mega Man special; you could start with any stage! So, seriously, if you’re going to make such changes, learn how to utilize your own changes, for god’s sake!
