Mega Man (3) - The Hedgehog Trap - When the name of the hack - SAID everything about itself

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 05 Dec 2021

Honestly, I fell into a trap because of the name.

Let’s start with the fact that this hack is good - the graphic part of EVERY SINGLE level. I really enjoyed how the graphic part was transferred from 16 bits to 8 bits. All locations are recognizable and have their own charm.

Even in the Castle - a beautiful and interesting graphic part (despite the fact that this is no longer similar to the graphic approach from the Hedgehog Franchise)

That’s the trap. The graphics are beautiful, but the levels are built in many locations - it’s bad.

  • Pixel jumps? YES
  • Do the enemies have a lot of HP? YES
  • Are the enemies weak to the blaster? NO!!! MANY ARE NOT WEAK TO IT.
  • Do the enemies kill the character’s health quickly? Yes.
  • Placing enemies? Stirred badly, that having received damage - greet the pit before death.
  • Changed bosses? Yes. Honestly changed bosses? NO

If NO, what’s the problem?

  • The first part of the bosses is the DOC BOTS
  • The second part of the game is the corrupted Robot masters.
  • The third part of the bosses are the rehardcored bosses from Wily’s Castle AND Rematch Corrupted Robot Masters.
  • Honestly, even someone else’s patch for speed and a patch for infinite lives (Especially SAVING AND LOADING THE GAME) will not save you from the pain and frustration of this hack.

    Graphically, it is beautiful, the playability is damn bad. IT IS DEFINITELY NOT WORTH RECOMMENDING TO ANYONE

    Version 1.1 Recommended - No
