Now play as Protoman in Mega Man X!

See changes made in the ReadMe file.

To patch this, you’ll need a copy of this file: Mega Man X (U) (V1.1).smc, and Lunar IPS or any other program, but I recommend Lunar IPS to patch it with.

And make sure it has a header on it on it.

A fun, yet unbalanced experience.

Reviewed By: ItsRainingGravy on 20 Feb 2014

Protoman 21XX does exactly what it says, with very little changes to the actual gameplay outside of Mega Man X becoming Protoman (and a few minor dialogue edits). This provides a fresh and unique feel for diehard Mega Man X fans, and it is quite a thrilling experience. However, there are a few very glaring flaws. The first of which, despite Protoman’s lower health, his buster makes the game ridiculously easy to beat. His shots can tear through even the toughest enemies, AND bosses, without needing to ever use any of the other weapons in the game. This leaves an unsatisfactory taste to players that wanted an equivalent amount or more difficulty added to the game (such as myself), though players who wanted an easier Mega Man X experience probably won’t complain as much. The second glaring flaw is the dialogue boxes. Grammar needs to be worked on, and for some dialogue boxes, the dialogue is cut off at the very top. Protoman 21XX shows that even simple edits such as changing the base stats and/or moves of the main character can provide a totally new and fun experience for a timeless classic, though it also shows that sometimes overzealous changes can also yield some unsatisfactory results in certain areas.
