Kuwata’s first hack of Rockman (1). It features new levels, graphics, enemies, and even music. The levels are very challenging; some even have small puzzles in them.
It should be noted this hack will not work with a Mega Man ROM, you need to patch a Rockman ROM.

Responsibly ExperimentalReviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 20 Nov 2017
This hack has some very interesting ideas for levels, but in terms of layout and in terms of visual design. Guts Man now resides in a cool, futuristic mining area that looks like it could have come right out of the mid-’80s. Ice Man’s stage begins with you sliding along what appears to be a deep pond, but is frozen on top, so you can’t go into it, but there are all sorts of interesting things happening beneath the surface, bringing to the imagination a whole new world below. The old fences in Fire Man’s stage can now be climbed, which completely changes how the stage unfolds, though there’s a little trial and error toward the beginning. It also now features these gorgeous purple flames. Bomb Man has a pink and teal theme that clashes a little bit, but the actual shades chosen are lovely, and a bit evocative of an old SMS game; you will also find those big domes from the background now act as platforms, and the boss arena has a very cool aesthetic. Elec Man’s stage has a lovely lime and blue scheme, with brightly-colored simple periods at the end, though, unfortunately, it does also contain my only real gripe with the hack. This might be a personal point, but I hate the mazes that sometimes show up in Mega Man hacks, because they often make little sense, and this one is no exception. The Wily stages have been revamped, too; the Yellow Devil isn’t painfully slow anymore, and the second stage goes from a deep pink sky casting a blue glow on the dusky landscape below to bright green grass against a black sky for the sub-boss fights later on in the stage. Though it’s not without its frustrations, neither was the original Mega Man; I’d highly recommend this one, even if for some of the interesting things it tries.
