Despite the name this is actually a Mega Man 2 hack, which translates it back into Japanese and adds a ton of cool features. To put it simply, this is a new Mega Man 2, the only things that still exist from the original are the robot masters, and even they’ve been changed in terms of fighting style.
Don’t take anything for granted in this hack, those weak rabbit robots in Wood Man’s stage? They shoot instant death fireballs now. Sniper Joes? In addition to their normal fighting style they also fire Crash Bombs are you!
It should also be pointed out that the music has been changed, this is very rare in ROM hacks, it seems some of it comes from the Game Boy Mega Man games and some comes from other NES titles.

Ouch, my ears...Reviewed By: Yoshiatom on 28 Dec 2013
I’ll cut to the chase here and get started on a big problem with this hack: the music is awful! The author has tried to port music from the GB Mega Man games (and music from other games), but the results are off-key, have tones that aren’t pleasing to the ears, or sound nothing like the original song. There are other issues too, the difficulty can be obnoxious at times, such as the prop-tops in Crash Man’s stage, and the fact that Sniper Joes shoot crash bombs. The only thing I like about this hack is the gimmick in Quick Man’s stage, but other than that this hack is best left avoided.
