Mega Man Remastered

Hack of Mega Man

Description:

Celebrating the 30th Anniversary of the Mega Man series with a remaster of the first game that started it all!

Mega Man Remastered (formerly known as the Upgrade Patch) is a patch for the first Mega Man game, which enhances it in so many ways, without modifying the levels or graphics (minor graphics and palette changes, which are listed with all of the changes in the readme). To those that are familiar with the Upgrade Patch, you could consider this Version 1.7 of it.

Here are just a few of the changes that have been made to this game:

  • Converted to Mapper 4: MMC3.
  • Graphics format converted to CHR-ROM.
  • The game now has the ability to save and load your progress.
  • All-new titlescreen.
  • Boss-preview screen is now like Mega Man 2’s.
  • Gameover screen has been updated to look more like Mega Man 2’s.
  • Updated palettes for Cut Man and Elec Man stages.
  • Score and score balls have been removed from the game.
  • Select button toggles between obtained weapons (hence removing the pause feature).

This is the ultimate Mega Man enhancement patch!

Mega Man: Room For Improvement Patch

Reviewed By: Rafaelele on 16 Jun 2016

It’s a pretty solid patch, but there are still things left to fix.

Mega Man slides a bit on non-ice terrain when you let go of the D-Pad, causing him to clumsily fall off ledges and die (especially when collecting health/weapon refills near said ledges). Mega Man is not a momentum based platformer, so addressing this is for the best.

Excess lag in many areas. Too many areas to name. Yes it is possible to remove slowdown since “Mega Man 3 Improvement” did just that (and much more). Lag-free Mega Man 1 would be deeply appreciated.

Bonus Balls should be left in a separate patch included in the download, since they are just a nuisance to the player.

When collecting health/weapon refills, the game pauses. Yes, this is an integrated part of Mega Man but the gameplay flow is so much smoother when this is absent (ex: MM3 Improv)

Changing weapons in real-time would be fantastic. (MM3 Improv did it)

These changes would make Mega Man 1 a much more enjoyable game. That is a fact.

Version 1.6 Recommended - Yes
