With a mix of blandness and awful...

Reviewed By: 8.bit.fan on 06 Apr 2017

This hack started out ok, with easy to normal difficulty for the robot master stages with a few decently interesting surprises. However, the music is just awful to listen to, and the Wily levels go WAY too far into their gimmicks to a point of boredom and annoyance.

Gameplay - 6/10

The gameplay is nothing special. Plays like Mega Man 2. Weapon and item behaviors are changed, but nothing special. What really drags down the gameplay is some of the level design and just sheer difficulty in the Wily levels. I’ll get into that in the next section.

Difficulty - 7/10

The 8 robot masters stages are fairly easy, but once you get to Wily 2, it’s a different game. While I appreciate clever and well thought out puzzles, the creator of this hack took it WAAAAAYYY too far with them. Wily 2 + 3 + 4 are just an endless marathon of puzzles and it got VERY old by the third screen of Wily 2….2!! The worst part about it is that there are just SO MANY little puzzles for each screen, that when you die, you’d have to do them ALL OVER AGAIN!! The game became a chore and just not fun to play at the end. And then there’s this moving platform section in Wily 4. While creative, and could’ve been cool, it again dragged on for WAY TOO LONG. And with so many insta-death spikes along the way, each time you lose, you go back.

Music - 4/10

The music is AWFUL in this hack. From the high pitched sounds to the melodies being off tuned, it’s an earful and I don’t mean it in a good way. It’s hard on the ears and most of the tracks are just poorly arranged. There are a few semi-decent melodies, but the lack of proper noise and triangle made them terrible to listen to.

Graphics - 7/10

Some levels look nice, some are colorful, some with colors that clash, and some just look OK. The level where you’re in a cave with lava looks nice.

Hacking Effort - 8/10

The hacking effort is there. With lots done to the graphics and block placements, even if they’re poorly planned out. Also, however awful they are, hacking music in these rom hacks require quite a bit of effort. So credit where credit’s due. Good hacking effort.

Overall - 6/10

In the end, given all its problems and issues, I just can’t recommend this hack especially there are much better ones out there such as Mega Man CX, Gray Zone, Exile, etc. But if you’ve played the majority of them already and have not tried this one, meh…why not?
