An often cruel take on Megaman 4

Reviewed By: Satoshi_Matrix on 12 Sep 2018

I honestly quite enjoy the Ridley X Hack series. Each infuses Megaman 4 with elements from other games in the series, showing how truly modular Megaman is and also how talented Ridley X can be.

But this one stands alone in being the only one I don’t recommend. This is essentially a kaizo hack for Megaman 4. It isn’t simply more difficult, it’s absolutely punishingly difficult.

Every level has been modified with more pits, more spikes, and many, many more enemies. On top of that, nearly all of the enemies have increased hit points, requiring double or triple the shots to defeat.

Collisions also do more damage, and Boss AI has been adjusted so they will react quicker and be far more aggressive. On top of all of that, many of the weapons consume more energy, and most of the Cossack and Wily Fortress bosses are completely immune to the Megabuster, creating a situation where you will constantly be short on weapon energy.

I did complete the hack, but not without the aid of savestates. This isn’t a hack for a casual playthrough of Megaman 4. If you’re looking for a more relaxed playthrough, try one of the other Ridley X hacks, or check out Rockman 4 Advanced.
