Megaman 3 Ridley X VS Gamma

Hack of Mega Man 3

Description:

This is actually a combination of two hacks with a little extra in between.

Ridley X is known for making a lot of Megaman hacks, but not known for making hacks with new music. This uses Ridley X’s hack as a base, but adds the music from DulfarC’s Battle of Gamma. In addition to this…

  • Some stages have been tweaked and edited with different enemies.
  • A “brand new” stage.
  • The Robot Master rematches are skipped.

Credit to Ridley X for the stages. Credit to DulfarC for the music.

A Little Buggy

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 07 Dec 2017

This is a pretty decent hack; it gets a little intense at spots, but overall, it’s not punishingly difficult. The level design is a little weird in that a lot of it is close to the original game’s layout, even though every stage has a new tileset. The new tilesets are decent, too, many of which borrow from other Mega Man games. Shadow Man’s is one of my favorites, with its black sewage taken from Pump Man’s stage. Magnet Man’s stage has a neat area that’s almost completely in the dark, calling back to Plug Man’s stage. Snake Man’s stage is an interesting mix of the stages of Wood Man and Stone Man, with a lovely color combination of wheat-colored leaves with magenta ground. Even Break Man’s tiny stage has Concrete Man’s tileset, but with blue concrete and orange leaves. Most of the game is pretty on-the-level; it wasn’t bad by any means (aside from maybe 2 songs), but it didn’t really blow me away. It’s a good hack if you’re looking for something new to play, and have already tried the masterpieces.
