NOTE : I highly recommended using FCEUX or VirtuaNES emulator. In some cases, there’re bugs when handling some enemies’ AI on certain emulators.

Mega Man: Indonesian Artifact - THIS HACK is a "MEGAMAN" in its purest form!!!

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 26 Oct 2021

I’m sorry for yelling like that, but it’s just amazing. At first, it will seem that the hack is made for a grin. But actually - after playing it, I can just say that it is on the level… !STOP! It is too early to compare, it is necessary to describe its pros and cons.

Let’s start with the pros, because they clearly stand out strongly.

1. Graphics. We tried to make it look like Indonesia, right? I’ve never been there, but I’ll say this: “Very Good graphics.” I may be wrong, but I haven’t even seen this in other games. Masterfully tried, well done. Pleasant backgrounds, “platforms” on which the main character goes and, colors. They go well together. Sometimes it seems that they squeezed all the strength out of the old NES. (I even compared this to 16-bit graphics for some reason)

2. Levels. Nice to play, each level is a kind of art. Not violent, pleasant, which slowly adds atmosphere and adding complexity.

3. Interesting features and enemies. On one of the levels - you can come across new enemies that fit well into this Game. And still - features from the author, such as ice icicles, quick lasers and others. (we don’t forget to replenish the energy of weapons)

4. Bosses. To be honest, I haven’t seen anyone redraw bosses for a long time. (the last thing that happened was in the Rockman CX hack). And not only redrawn… Oh, getting ahead of myself… Redrawn very well. Don’t even touch them. As if CAPCOM itself had a hand in them… I’m talking about robomaster, if that. But I will not only affect them. EACH BOSS is UNIQUE in its own way. EVERYONE IS INTERESTING AND MEMORABLE. Some give a challenge, some change AI - in a more interesting direction. Example: one of the bosses of Wily castle. A big robot, with only its head left… But it’s the darkness, scrolling, his attacks - I inadvertently remembered the boss from MM7. Oh, I forgot about the new mini boss… But it costs you to play, so you can see it

5. Music. Each track is combined with each level, and, as I said earlier - gives the atmosphere. But one track still left a bad aftertaste… MM8 Wily Castle introduction… Honestly, I didn’t like the sound… It’s as if the original track was lowered under the water and it became buggy…

6. Megaman’s Abilities. Here we tried to change them so that they differ from their originals. Did it work? And Yes, because many have a different usage pattern. And no, because there are some abilities that are clearly 1 to 1 with the original… Which leaves a twofold feeling. IT doesn’t disappoint, however.

And now, what conclusions can I bring?..

This hack is on par with such as: Rockman CX, Megaman Reloaded, MM4 Voyage, Rockman 6 Spirits of Hackers.. the best that was created by experienced people. Why on a par? Because these hacks have high quality, playability, and interestability. It is not knocked out of the category, as other as (I will tell about it later). And it gives something new, in the OLD, Refreshing and so to say, redesign in a special way. This without words is a new game. I can recommend it to anyone who wants to enjoy it.

Status: NEW GAME!
