Mega Man II Weapon Hack

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

A heavy weapon hack for the NTSC version of Mega Man II.

This hack includes the following changes to the weapons:

  • Boss’ bar fills faster
  • Mega Man’s energy fills faster (either by energy capsule and E-Tank)
  • You start out with 1 free E-Tank in your inventory.
  • Floor friction increased. Mega Man no longer slips and stops immediately after you release the D-Pad. Mimics the response from other Mega Man titles like 4 or 5.
  • Items 1, 2 & 3 are infinite. This was done to avoid going back and forth some screens just to fill up the gauge to get over a certain portion of a stage.
  • Weapon usage reduced. Every weapon shoot will only take 1 ammo consumption.
  • Leaf Shield modified: You can now move with the Leaf Shield on and shoot it with Button B at any of the four main directions. (Bug fix from previous versions has been fixes as of v1.2)
  • Time Stopper modified: The amount of time the weapons is used is reduced to 4 seconds per use, instead of depleting your ammo in only one button press. As of version 1.1, whenever you activate the Time Stopper, Mega Man is invincible to any enemy damage (He flickers)
  • Crash Bomber modified: The detonation is now done remotely, by pressing the B button. This helps a lot in a particular stage in Wily’s Fortress.
  • Atomic Fire modified: The charge time has been reduced, it now charges twice as fast.

Removed what made MM2 special and unique.

Reviewed By: 8.bit.fan on 23 Mar 2017

This is going to be a quick review as it’s an Improvement hack so I’ll keep it brief.

While the hacker’s intentions are there and all those who love MM2(including myself) wants to find even more ways to improve upon this almost flawless classic, sometimes changing too much of its core and what made MM2 great is not the best idea.

First thing first, I HATE the removal of Floor Friction. This is one of the things that made MM1 and MM2 unique and arguably better than 3-6. The momentum that MM has makes the first 2 MM games feel more natural and more like a genuine platformer. Whereas the removal of it makes MM feel ’stiff’ and unnatural. This is the WORST part of this hack.

Other improvement aspects are good such as energy filling faster as they don’t impact the quality of the game mechanics/gameplay.

Modifications to weapons were a hit and miss. Time Stopper could always be improved, as it does here. But adding more Crash Bombs breaks the game such as Wily 4 boss. You were meant to figure out how to maximize every single Crash Bombs to beat it.

Ok I guess this review turned out to be longer than I expected. But I want to stress the fact to NEVER remove the Floor Friction or change MM’s physics/mechanics in MM1 and MM2. Otherwise you might as well do hacks for MM3-6. I absolutely despise this change and for this reason alone I would not recommend this or any other hacks that changes MM1&2’s physics/mechanics.

Version 1.3 Recommended - No
