Rockman CX - more than a hackReviewed By: diablo666 on 01 Dec 2019
Rockman CX (aka Megaman CX) is the first hack to hit me with its own appearance. I have been following his process since 2013. From simple graphic hacking - by 2017, much has changed.
0. The story that we must defeat Dr. Light (Right)
1. Graphics and structure levels. They are pleased with the good ones, albeit in places - they jump in complexity, but somewhere there is not enough graphic component. BUT! The lack of graphics at the Megaman level adorns him… Although there is a minus in this
2. A variety of enemies. There are from the original, but there are - which are made from scratch.
3. Music. Although all are mixes under NES, but they sound very good.
4. The bosses. They have changed everything, or rather many, but for those who have familiar habits of behavior. They combine well. Some bosses have several phases. For example: Mega man and his hidden E banks, Cheat man and 2 different rounds, Fierce Gust Tank…
5. Game characters. There are two of them, depending on your path. Most of the game - for the “Gray Rockman” - with machine guns. But the second character has homing boomerangs. And it diversifies the hack
6. The abilities here are different. Apple Shield, Bomb, Kick Kick, Rock Blaster, Cheat Sword, Fire Spit, Paper Blade, Invisible Clock. All are useful in their own way. Even Air man’s ability, I mean this Clock, had to be brains to break. But It is useful, no more than, um … Flash Stopped, because it almost does no damage to enemies, but for you - it will pass easily damage
7. ITEMs. Platforms, Energy Capsule and UberCharge. They are all useful, because the Platform is placed under the character and can save from fall into the pit, Capsule - restores the Energy of one or several abilities (+ Character health and ITEM Platform), UberCharge - temporary invulnerability from spikes, enemies or other damage. However, the downgrade happen… And because of what - UberCharge - to use only at full scale, the Energy Capsule - makes up for one thing, and the Platforms disappear faster
8. Additional levels. This is the level of Zero (beginning of the game), and the level of Staff (end of the game).
9. Different paths. It depends on whether you save the second character or not.
10. The game records progress. It is very good. Why is that? Because not everyone can start the game from the very beginning.
11. I forgot to say that there are two different languages, which will help to understand the dialogs and what is happening in the game
12. Dialogs that deepen the plot
13. Other obstacles and features. At the Mario level, there is a fiery rotating pillar of fire, causing damage. And there is a peculiar Tricky moment with a maze, as in the original SMB of World 4-4. You can still meet machine gun spikes. Spikes that take 1 HP each when they touch and E tank are traps. They pull the character’s HP
14. THIS IS THE FINAL BOSS. I only saw this in Game Boy MM4. The big boss in the background. You look at him, huge … You change the Functions of the abilities that you are trying to defeat him. The boss attacks from afar with stones (hitting the ground, they fly to a certain point, breaking a support underneath, that is, part of the laboratory. It also deals damage), reception “Hadouken”. And in close combat - trying to crush you with fists (Of the fist hits the void, there will be no damage)
Summing up the pros and cons of this hack. I give pluses for music, levels, Boss AI, abilities and non-linear passage possibilities. Cons come with the following points: inconvenient to slide. There you need to hold the buttons to slide. (Compare with MM3). Another minus goes to DOWNGRADE Items.
The hack so impressed me with its diversity, despite the minuses. I felt that I was playing a different, different game. Therefore, I give this status: “A NEW GAME. I advise you to play it, for you will enjoy it. Recommended!“
