Rockman Kenk

Hack of Mega Man

Description:

In celebration of the release of Mega Man 9 comes Rockman Kenk. What is Kenk? It’s a modified and polished version of Small Apple’s unfinished Rock Man Kai. 30% of the original patch was altered and fixed to keep the game’s feeling in line of the original game. All the levels have been redesigned and boss fights and weaknesses have been altered. Keep in mind this patch only works on the Japanese Rock Man game.

The Mega Man series tend to be plagued with mods that are littered with cheap hits and unfocused level design. One thing that Kenk attempts to do is stick close enough to the source material in level style and difficulty, but at the same time it changes things up just enough to feel fresh.

It’s one of those rare hacks that is meant to be played NES style rather than the savestate way.

Not Bad

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 21 Nov 2017

This was a pretty decent hack - not bad by any means - but I struggle to find much to say about it. The levels have new designs and palettes that are decent; not frustrating. Some of the new weapon palettes are gorgeous, particularly Fire Storm and Thunder Beam. Music has been moved around a bit, and the Wily tunes from Mega Man 2 are here in place of the originals. The only reason that I don’t recommend it is because it doesn’t stand out, but if you’re looking for something that you haven’t played before, you can do a whole lot worse.
