A New Coat of Paint

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 14 Dec 2017

I remember absolutely loving this hack the first time I played it, but replaying it, I just think it’s good. First of all, everything has been recolored, except Mega Man and Rush, and even Mega Man’s weapons have new palettes. This might not sound like such a big deal, but it’s not often that you see the Wily bosses recolored, which I thought was a nice touch. A lot of the new stage palettes didn’t really blow me away, but they weren’t bad; I’ve played a few hacks with palettes that could make your eyes bleed, and there wasn’t any of that here. Wave Man’s stage had a beautiful red sky, which was lovely for the jetski section, and yes, even the jetski was recolored. Star Man’s stage had a fairly subtle change, but making the stars so many different colors really added a remarkable beauty to it all. My favorite new stage is Proto Man 3, which was still at night, but purple and blue in just the right shades.

The level design is a mixed bag. You will find all new challenges here, and most of them are pretty creative. Unfortunately, a few of them are a little on the tedious side. I think the biggest flaw might be that some of the robot master stages assume that you’ve beaten one or another already, so you’ll need Rush Jet or Super Arrow to grab the letter for Beat. I ran into this with Super Arrow, and when I went back into the stage, grabbed the letter, and completed it, the stage select screen glitched out pretty badly. The last remaining robot master’s portrait was basically still there, so it worked out okay, and after I’d entered the stage, everything went back to normal; it just seems like this happens after a replay of a stage you’ve already beaten. Still, the drawbacks aren’t enough for me to not recommend it; it’s a pretty fresh experience, and it’s clear that a lot of effort went into it.
