User Review Information

One of the best Mega Man II hacks!

Reviewed By: Ziko on 22 May 2017

I beat this already on Easy difficulty and now I am playing Conquest. It’s best to start on the latter as Easy is just too easy and I beat it in record time pretty much. The amount of changes is staggering and necessary really as Mega Man II has been notorious for it’s punishing difficulty in places. This hack pretty much is fair to any player who is smart enough to know what to do.
