Amazing, but bad at the same time

Reviewed By: Timaeus on 17 Sep 2020

Man, this hack got me conflicted. I loved the good parts but I despised the bad ones. Let’s start with the good ones first.

The graphics are top tier. The creator managed to created a great atmosphere with its MM graphics combined together. Pretty scheme of colors and nice details can be found here (I loved the use of the palette cycling to create a shining sun and waves. Pretty creative). Very colorful and it blends so well! One of the best graphical modifications of a MM3 hack for sure, maybe the best.

The weapons were really damn nice! I loved how the creator managed to make the whole arsenal useful in a way, and the weapon edits were very nice for my tastes. Hard Knuckle is confusing and uncomfortable to control, though (the up and down function is inverted). I loved Spark Shock, Needle Cannon, Gemini Laser and mainly, by far, Magnet Missile (hooray for 28 uses and being faster!!!). Their damage is also well balanced and useful and they all felt good to use (except Top Spin, which doesn’t kill enemies properly and it results in high contact damaging as a result).

Some parts of the level design were very creative, with VERY good uses of sliding to reach new areas in ways that are not visible at first.

The music is nice. Normally I dislike when the musics comes from other classic MM games, but here, they fit well for the atmosphere for the most part (also, nice Sonic 1 tunes here and there!)

I also appreciate the removal of the knockback after getting hit. That really saved me sometimes and made things better.

These were the parts that I loved about it. Now for the problems.

The level design have waaay too much pits and spikes, but mainly pits. It becomes frustrating at some point, even with the removal of the knockback. Pits are not the best way to increase the difficulty, and the author really loves them. The huge amount of pits made me feel more exhausted that I should be.

The sliding change was really bad. It lasts for a shorter time but goes further. It may not sound too bad, but the shorter sliding is enough to weirdly mess up with the rhythm that most MM players are adapted with, making dodging attack and doing constant actions weirdly uncomfortable (also not helped by the occasional lag and slightly imprecise controls when the lag happens).

But my main problem here are the enemies and bosses, mainly the bosses. They are too fast compared to Megaman. Some of them becomes unpredictable because of that, and others are just too hard to defeat without weakness or Energy Tanks. Combine that with the lag and changed sliding and you have a very bad experience with them, and Yellow Devil Mark II has pits on its arena now. Seriously? I appreciate the attempts of trying to make them harder, but it ended up being frustrating. Lastly, the contact damage is really high for some reason.

So yeah, the hack is certainly unique and has some very lovable parts, but it also has some bad parts that affects the gameplay. I really wanted to like this hack more, especially with such atmosphere and weapons. If you want to play it, make sure to use save states for the pit areas and do not be afraid of using weapons and Energy Tanks. I still recommend it because of how interesting the hack is and its ideas, but I recommend checking out Rockman Claw 3 over it. It also has a high quality, but you feel like you have more of a chance against the bosses and the levels.
