User Review Information
Insanely difficultReviewed By: hmsong on 10 Jun 2023
First of all, I can tell that the creator put lots of heart into this hack. Lots of new mechanics, AI behavior, different effects, weapons, level design, etc. Honestly, I can see why some people would like it.
But not me. The difficulty is too insane. Do you know why all the items are dirt cheap? (ex: a pack of 7 E tanks is only 10 bolts) It’s because the game is very difficult, and you’re gonna get hit a lot. Enemies drop Extra Life a lot? It’s because you’d be dying a lot. There’s not much fighting – you’re just getting your ass handed, and constantly using E tank to get around gets old really fast. The only way to really get anywhere while defeating enemies is to use Beat (who auto-hits enemies very quickly)… but then you’d be just walking forward while Beat does all the work (using W tank from time to time), and that gets old fast too. Again, not much fighting.
The level design is all over the place. Sure, there are new mechanics, such as snowboards and stuff, but the stage “theme” isn’t quite there. For example, in Freeze Man’s stage, why are there so many wheel enemies? (from the original Turbo Man’s stage)
Having said that, the boss fights are great. They are insanely difficult too, but not in a bad way. At least for the 8 Robot Masters. But after that, the bosses just get stupid hard (in a bad way). It’s completely ridiculous.
Unless you have lightning reflex or something, I strongly advice you to avoid this. This is not for casual players. I did not enjoy this.
