Rockman Exhaust - Revamped

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

This hack is an addendum to the Rockman Exhaust hack. The original hack by DHI is overall very fun, but unfortunately, it has several issues that are more or less game breaking. This hack attempts to fix these issues in order to make the game more enjoyable.

Here’s a list of what’s changed from the original hack:

1) Flashman - Removed 1 single block from the last room in the laser beam section. You can now make it through without having to do the pixel perfect and perfectly timed jump to make it through at the end of the set. Also added 1-up and weapon power-up at checkpoint before the laser beam section.

2) Metalman - Fixed boss gate so you won’t be forced out of the boss room during the fight anymore.

3) Fixed various locations in Wily stages and one instance in Crashman’s stage where you could get ’stuck’ and be forced to reset if you don’t have items 1/2/3 or if you don’t have enough energy for them.

4) Fixed various locations where there is unavoidable enemy damage. There are still areas that are seemingly unavoidable from enemy damage but you can actually kill the enemies or pass them without getting damaged, these are left intact and were not removed.

5) The text ‘PASS WORD’ is now changed to ‘PASSWORD’.

There Are LESS Stress Inducing Rockman 2 Variants Out There

Reviewed By: FreightMan71 on 05 Feb 2017

I gave this a shot as Mega Man/Rockman 2 is my favorite of the original series.

Still even with the ‘revamps’, there are too many areas where mandatory hits are the order of the day and thus suck much of the fun out of this.

I like a good challenge as much as the next masochist, but I just didn’t have fun with this one. If you like bone breaking hard, then go for it, but for the rest of us, other MM/RM 2 hacks do a better job in the ‘fairness’ department.

Invincible enemies on platforms a mere two characters wide that you HAVE to land on, being blitzed with bullets with no real way to dodge, having enemeies drop from the sky on critical jump areas, and, (gasp), INVISIBLE floors (Air Man stage I believe) with invisible PITS…yikes!

Yea, that last one was the straw that overburdened the camel….I quit and deleted it at that point….

Sad to say, NOT recommended unless you go in KNOWING the game is going to be unfair from the start.
