Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

What the hack contains:

  • Minor text edits
  • Slightly altered title screen
  • The game now uses SRAM

The main feature of this hack is that the password system has been replaced with a save system. Whenever you complete a stage, the game will save the completed stage, your lives, E-Tanks, and the special items you obtain from Dr. Light.

RetroRain chose to call this hack Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily, because the Japanese version is called Rockman 2: Dr. Wily no Nazo, which means “The Mystery of Dr. Wily” in English. So, this patch is simply an update to the English Mega Man II that was released.

A Good Hack, indeed.

Reviewed By: JamesSullivan3 on 18 Oct 2016

While this is indeed a wonderful hack, one I would definitely recommend, doing away with the password system altogether and allowing the ability to save, I can’t help but feel it’s missing something. Namely, the ability to revisit the stages, which is a matter of simple hex-editing. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hack.
