Difficult, but a good remixReviewed By: Sosuko on 10 Jan 2021
Overall, this hack left a pretty good impression on me as a slight remix to the original Megaman 2. The level design is significantly harder throughout, with tons of spike jumps, fast spawning enemies, and supped up enemies, but you do get tools to deal with them (e.g. many of the tricky spike sections have enemies near by you can damage off of to abuse the invincibility through). Since the robot master weapons haven’t changed too much, getting Metal Blade does make the game significantly easier, but there are still several sections that will just require some dedication and practice. Boss patterns and weaknesses have been changed, with that common theme being that all move and attack much faster. Several are also “semi-weak” to the buster, which fortunately provides you some more freedom in what order you take on the stages. Stages themselves feature some unique (Kirby) tilesets and some lesser known music choices, which was kinda cool to see.
Once you get to the Wily stages, the actual stages themselves are pretty easily dealt with using all the weapons and items, but 2 of the bosses are very brutal. For my own patience, I used save states immediately before the boss since the stages themselves were so short and boring to play through repetitively. Weirdly enough, the final boss rush and bosses are significantly easier, really only requiring a single continue for me to figure out.
The difficulty spikes could definitely be a turn off for some, but this hack is definitely of a high enough quality to be worth a play for any Megaman 2 fan.
