Fast-Paced and IntenseReviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 22 Nov 2017
This hack overhauls the entire game to that point that if it weren’t for the familiar enemies (despite their new behavior), you might think you were playing a hack of a different Mega Man game altogether. For one thing, post-hit invincibility now protects you from spikes, like in the other Mega Man games. From there, you have new boss palettes, new level tilesets, new music, and new weapons! The actual levels aren’t as crazy colorful as some of the hacks I’ve seen, but they have some neat ideas. There are a few unnecessarily frustrating moments, though, like the flying scissor generators in Cut Man’s stage. Most of the others are due to the quirky nature of the replacement for the Magnet Beam, which is now a double jump. It’s not as great as it sounds; the second jump’s height seems to be pretty inconsistent, unless I just didn’t figure it out. Other than that, the new levels are definitely harder, but some players will be able to beat this without states. The other new weapons are a nice mix, too; some are better than the originals, whereas others are not, but the Super Arm will generate a block, if you don’t already have one, so it’s never useless. The arsenal is more well-rounded overall, too, so you’ll be thinking about which weapons to use in which situations. The music is great, too; I can’t tell how many of them are original compositions, because I tend to know songs more by their instrumentation than the actual notes, but I did recognize Journey to Silius, Rudra no Hihou, and, believe it or not, there’s a song from Rokko-Chan, a Mega Man fangame; how meta. At present, this is my favorite hack of the original Mega Man.
