Mega Man World 1-4 are remixed content from the NES games. It makes sense that if you did only 1, you'd do 5, which has all original content.

World 1-4 don't get their dues. While yes, they contain mostly recycled concepts, they're completely original takes. For example, Crystal Man's stage from Megaman 5 on NES and Cryatal Man's stage from Megaman IV GameBoy are drastically different. A lot of GameBoy games were literally the NES game with less screen resolution, but not so with the Megaman titles.

Indeed! I always thought that it would make for a good series of hacks for RMW 1-4 to just change the Robot Masters' graphics for entirely new ones using the various unused designs from complete works as inspiration.

The GB versions of 1-4 recycle graphics, music and bosses of the NES games. However, the level layouts seem to be almost entirely unique and original from what I can tell. Someone can correct me if i'm wrong about that.

And is it for this reason Dr. Light looks like Santa Claus? No, I'm joking :laugh:
