Description and Storyline

Mega Man Reloaded is a simple Mega Man 1 hack. It has new graphics, new layout and design, and music ported from Mega Man 2!

“Wily got out of prison and he secretly built up his new base on a small island. He stole and reprogrammed Light’s first 6 robot masters from the Robot Museum, to get revenge for being defeated for the 11th time. Dr. Wily sent them across the world to cause total chaos! Will Mega Man be able to stop Wily once again?!”

  • Glitch: When you die at the Final Boss while holding right and don’t releasing it until respawning successfully will make you glitch into Wily’s room. Just don’t abuse this.
  • Note: Magnet Beam is ONLY obtainable on Cut Man’s stage. (You still must have Elec Beam or Super Arm to obtain it.)

One of the best Megaman hacks is here!

Reviewed By: Zynk on 08 Mar 2013

This is what I could say is my immediate fave in all Megaman hacks! This hack could use a review :)

Maybe I should break this down to the goods:

Music: Reloaded was intended to be a Megaman 1.5 so you’ll only get music imported from Megaman 2, so no new music here. At least the music matched each Robot Master from MM2 to MM1.

Graphics: This hack features new & old level tiles. Welp, most of the tiles used were borrowed from other Megaman sequels, but all blends well with the new level designs! Aside from stage design, some of the enemy sprites were altered like the Blader. Moreover, there are some AI fixes like Sniper Joe not chasing you when you hurdle over them! Enemies are hardened, but with the right weapon, you can now defeat them with ease (Note: Ice Slasher is the main weapon here)!

Level Design: What’s good about this hack is that the levels are arranged in a way that you can make it to the Boss’ room without a staggering low HP. The levels are virtually playable! No insane difficulty here, unless you reached the Dr.Wily Stages. And, anybody would really like the Gauntlet near the end!

Overall: A very, very lovely hack! It’s not an insane hard nor an elaborately new kind of hack. Its a well-designed level game hack! I just hope Zieldak would make new Reloaded hacks (*insert Megaman 2 Reloaded here*)! That’s all!
