Hack of Mega Man 2


This is the hack of Mega Man 2, not Rock Man 2. It makes the following changes:

Quickman can now shoot in eight directions.

The number of lives in the game has been changed to the number of deaths, and the level can be exited by command. To activate: Pause Select E tank, press right + attack + jump, and then press up or down.

Added D. Tank and E. Tank: D. Tank is the same as the original E. Tank. When 4 E. Tanks are collected, there is an automatic synthesis of E. Tank. Also modified the upper limit of E. Canister

No need to wait for energy to fall to the ground, there is no retention time when recovering

Weapons: retain all the weapons forms of the original version, and add a new set of weapons. The weapons are common to the two characters. The first eight bosses have 8 D tanks on the stage. After obtaining them, they will use enhanced weapons.

Weapon modification details:

H: Reduce energy consumption, strengthen the second-order charge to obtain a Flame charge.

A: Reduce energy consumption, strengthen the tracking effect, press the attack button to spread the track.

W: There is no change by default. It is strengthened as a circle of leaves falling off the screen. When you press the UP, the circle of leaves will rise from the bottom of the screen.

B: Increase energy consumption, after strengthening, pick up bubbles will restore health volume.

Q: increase energy consumption, strengthen orbital diffusion, and speed up Megaman P bullet. F: General: You can use the sub-pause to stop the flash, after strengthening, the release will immediately obtain the invincible effect

M: increase energy consumption, strengthen to obtain attack penetration, but the number of carry is halved

C: Increase the attack detonation, strengthen the mobs and bullets directly removed from the screen

items: items are optional.They are placed in the stage of 8 Robot Masters and cannot be obtained by defeating 8 Robot Masters and passwords.

No. 1 and No. 3: press up to speed up the ascent . No. 2: Press up to speed up the flight .

Boss: 8 Robot Master uses multiple health bars for charging. Rockman has two rows and quickman has three rows. The boss will change slightly according to the loss of health bars and whether the current level D tank is picked up.

The details of the wily boss modification are as follows

wily boss: wily 1: Dragon: The reels will not stop. After the reels are started, the boss will be resurrected in the reels. In order to prevent jams, keep the dragon head and remove the dragon’s body block and body damage judgment.

wily 2: The appearance of the boss is changed from a combination to a diffusion. The diffusion method is random (higher horizontal probability), and the diffusion time is shortened. After diffusion, a group of two will be generated.

The accurate coordinates of each group appearing are provided in the stage.

wily 3 tank: A lift that can be manually controlled up and down is provided in the stage. Use crash on the lift to defeat the boss.

wily 4 monitoring: only one boss appears at a time, randomly appearing in 9 positions, defeating one boss will immediately wake up the second boss. will also be awakened at random locations. wily 6 Alien: The boss will break the defense at regular intervals and cannot be attacked at other times.

Mega Man 2 DA - The hack is bad. A lot has been taken and the potential has not been realized

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 03 Nov 2021

I didn’t think I would stumble upon this, because I see a lot of minuses in the hack, and so few pluses. And, we’ll have to start with the cons.

  • 1. Еnemies and a lot of different AI in it. In theory, the idea is interesting, like “The enemy attacks in different ways” and it would be unusual… if it worked after the loss of life, and not like here. An example is the robo rabbits: First, the carrot attack (blows down a lot of HP), then the usual enemy shot, and after the “Leaf Shield” (And he, for a minute, does not break through and has a large radius of defeat of our hero). Why did I give them as an example? Most of all, they beat me dishonestly.
  • 2. Level Design. I didn’t think I’d say this - but it’s really poorly thought out. It’s difficult even for me. I managed to go through almost all the stages (it really hurt), but the Quick man stage turned out to be beyond my strength … (Later, though I was able to pass by accident. I’ll tell you later why it turned out to be a problem in one line) Wily Castle is for some reason more loyal to the player. But there will still be problems there.
  • 3.Bosses. Created by 2 (3) phases of them. Sounds interesting, only - it’s not balanced. Each phase on the Robomaster is its different AI (it turns out these AI were taken from other hacks). Honestly, it could be interesting if one fact: “You came to the wrong boss or you don’t have enough skills against his AI, there will be loss, loss and loss of lives in the game.” This fact, on the contrary, repels about the passage.
  • 4.Characters to choose from. How are they different? Just a graphical shell. Both characters are indistinguishable from each other, although they have different names. Pure Megamens (Okay, slightly different. One of them has eternal Metal Blades)
  • 5.Speaking of Level Design and many other things, we can say such a fact as “unsuccessful copying of other ideas”. If you don’t look closely, then I will say the obvious ones: Yoku Spike (Taken from Rockman 2 Basic Master v1.0), Enemies - rising pillars like from MM5 (Taken from Rockman 2 Basic Master v1.2), Raising the wind up (taken from Megaman Forever)… it was I who met more familiar elements in the hack, but I think it’s more.

If this hack has pros? Honestly, there are, but they overlap with minuses. Well, here they are:

  • 1. Mini E-tank. This is a good idea, especially with bosses. Having accumulated four, there is an additional health-restoring item at once.
  • 2. To my surprise, there are two good bosses here. Really good ones. They are in Wily Castle 2 and in Wily Castle 4. One is an honest double block that is hunting for you. The second is the random appearance of a shooting lamp. Here is the question open to me: “Successful copying or your own idea?” BUT, alas, there will be no answer.
  • 3.Convenient collection of energy for abilities and HP. That’s where, but I didn’t expect this at all. I met a similar system of collecting and sorting energy in very late parts of a series of games about Mega Man (Like starting with part 5, but I could be wrong). To recreate such a trifle is small, but nice.

Yeah. The review came out hard for me, because I saw other good hacks that showed the potential to promote Rom Hacking. Honestly, this hack gave a reason “To draw attention to it.” As a result - I see a hack, after playing and managing to defeat it - I got disappointed. A lot of potential good ideas have been taken. Honestly, I gave him a 148% chance. I was sure of him. And I was wrong. The potential in the hack is missed.

Honestly, I don’t recommend the hack because of a lot of reasons. Main: this is taking other people’s ideas (piracy), but not making good out of it.

And yes, for me this hack sounds like “Megaman 2 YES” (if you look in Russian). Change it to “Megaman 2 HET” (In Russian it sounds “Megaman 2 NO”) (P.S. A little humor here, looking at the diversity of languages)

P.S. It turns out I missed one moment when I played hack for the first time. It turns out that in this hack, the SELECT button is responsible for changing abilities. And then I had a question: “What were they thinking!?” Because I really didn’t really understand how to go through the Quick man stage - until I watched the passage in Video Hosting. Packed with one stage of “99 lost lives”
