Reviewed By: PowerPanda on 30 Mar 2017

I have not played through this hack fully yet. I’ve just sampled the robot master stages. While I love the idea of the hack, the execution needs a bit of polish. The stages seem to be designed so that the most natural actions you do will send you into a bottomless pit or into spikes. I realize the original Megaman V did this too, so I can’t complain too much, but it was definitely off-putting. I’ll keep playing to the end, because all of this could be forgiven after I get used to this stage designer.
