Amazing hack with very minor issues

Reviewed By: megarobman on 20 Sep 2021

For reference, Rockman 2 DA 1.0 is one of the worst mm2 hacks I’ve ever played. This is the opposite. This hack was incredible. Timaeus compared it to yendor code, and I think that is a fair comparison in terms of the regular enemies in the game and the design over all, it’s all changed and all done really well. Yes, there’s some stupid and jank parts, I magically teleported in air mans stage and fell to my death (couldn’t replicate it), the crabs are homing missiles faster than you can walk (but still easy to deal with if you’re an experienced player), the last room of wood mans stage is hot garbage and Quick Mans stage is nothing but lasers and not fun at all. The rest of the game is wonderful and very well done other than what I said above about the weird and/or unmarked teleporter. Flash Man’s stage is so super cool. You may notice that I didn’t mention the bosses, well, some of them are much better than others, flash is a weird fight, and there’s some interesting properties to others to make them different, but all the 8 robots have 2 health bars (3 if you play as quick I’ve been told), which is fine since the game gives you etanks at every corner AND infinite lives. The bosses are all pretty easy if you’re an experienced player. This was an absolute surprise and a joy to play. Not very difficult, the 1.0 DA took like 8 hours over 2 days (I did beat it single segment), this game took me only like 100 minutes playing 95% buster only, it’s not that hard, and does not deserve the hate it is getting here. This is a top 10 mega man 2 hack and you would be silly to dismiss it. The only reason to dismiss it is a lot of uncredited assets from other hacks and stuff, but that does not bother me in the slightest.

Playthrough: (NSFW warning)

This is my first review, I planned on beating “every” mega man rom hack before I went about reviewing them all, I’ve beaten over 220 mega man 1-6 hacks on my stream single segment no cheats mostly buster only (and even more if you include unfinished hacks). The only 3 I have left are Return of Wily, Kaizo Man 1 (unlisted on rhdn) and AgainS. I decided that this onslaught of NO’s here is just not acceptable to me personally because this hack deserves better. Thank you Adong for all of your work, I appreciate you!
