Anything Megaman can do, Roll can do better

Reviewed By: Satoshi_Matrix on 14 Apr 2016

As a Roll fan, I am delighted to see this excellent hack.

Far more than simply Megaman 3 with a new sprite, this plays as an alternate and superior version of the original game.

Built upon Megaman 3 Improvement, this is not a level hack, but instead aims to fix virtually everything that was wrong with the original Megaman 3. Bugs, glitches, debug leftovers and general errors in the code have been ironed out, and some useful general changes have been added to improve the game.

There are small graphical fixes instances with parallax scrolling, including that weird glitch near Shadowman’s portrait on the robot master screen and the star field moves at a different pace, creating a better sense of depth in Geminiman’s stage.

As with Megaman 4 onward, you can re-enter stages already beaten, although the boss doesn’t reappear, and exit the stages too by opening the weapons menu and then pressing select.

Life and Weapon energy power ups instantly happen, rather than stopping the game as they slowly fill.

Best of all, you can now change your weapons on the fly using the Select button, which in the original game doesn’t get used at all.

Using Select to change weapons (and access Rush abilities) changes the gameplay by making the game much faster and more fluid than the original game. No more hitting start and sorting through your gear to find what you want - just press Select a few times. Like Megaman 10, the icon of the weapon even appears above your head for a second or so. Very very nice touch!

What’s more, brand new intro cutscenes have been added that match the visual presentation of the intros of Megaman 9 and 10. These look fantastic.

Roll-Chan 3 as with Zynk Oxhyde’s other Roll-Chan hacks, comes in two versions: Classic Roll and MM8 Roll. The only difference is the outfit Roll wears, but this is reflected in all sprites, and even in all cutscenes! Choose the outfit you prefer and go take on Wily as super girl Roll!

If you’re looking for a superior version of the old classic Megaman 3, you just found it.
