Bass

Hack of Mega Man

Description:

The evil plans of Dr.Wily have been foiled many times by MegaMan, the blue bomber. All of Wily’s robots destroyed, Wily resorts to his secret project… “Bass”. Bass is a prototype among many powerful warrior ‘bots that Wily has created. Unlike the others, Bass has incredible power.

As Wily ponders which ‘bot to continue on with, suddenly an alarm sounds deep in Skull Castle. A mysterious army of renegade robots had attacked his old domain, “Monsteropolis”. Wily seizes this opportunity to test Bass. And so begins Bass’s first adventure. As Bass defeat the six robot emperors, PirateMan, GroundMan, ColdMan, MagicMan, BurnerMan and DynamoMan, and retake Monsteropolis, as Bass’s first task.

The world of Monsteropolis has changed over the years, so be careful!

There is issues, but still playable.

Reviewed By: Kallisto on 06 Feb 2017

Considering the year this romhack was made, I can see how this thing turned out to be a bit of a mess, but this adventure is not exactly impossible to beat. The frustrations are mostly from jumbled up enemy code inside the game that causes certain enemies to only appear under certain circumstances, and the odd graphical glitches. Sometimes the platforming can be a bit cheap, and you have to act quick to destroy certain enemies.

The bosses are not exactly well put together, but back then there was no 8-bit versions of those bosses yet, but thanks to some talented sprite artists they exist now in better shape. Also the stages for those bosses should exist in 8-bit now as well. Personally if he were to comeback to this project, he be better off just making something without MM1’s limitations instead. I’m sure the author nonetheless as long since moved on though.

The gameplay overall is a bit challenging, but it is not impossible to conquer, and there is only a few times where you might to make use of a save-state, but due to the glitches, and cheap antics of this romhack, I cannot recommend it.
