the BEST megaman 2 hack to date

Reviewed By: Notthisguy on 18 Dec 2017

The game starts up like a typical megaman 2 hack, but prepare to be blown away from the moment you hit start. You play as a Megaman doppleganger created by Dr Wily. Your mission is to defeat Dr lights robots, allies, and prove ONCE AND FOR ALL that Dr Wily is superior.

Graphics 9/10 Choice of colors was excellent here. Bosses, stages and enemies were all re-engineered and recolored. Megaman’s stage could use some brushing up. It’s just a bunch of lines and a black background. I’m not sure if it was intended that way because everything else looks pretty good.

Gameplay 10/10 Complete engine overhauls were made, and the rom was expanded to 513 KB! (from 257kb) The game itself plays slightly faster than mega man 2. You get to play as Quickman in the intro and outtro, which feels like playing mega man X with these incredible boomerangs that 1shot everything. He also runs faster and climbs walls like X. Levels now scale horizontal AND vertical, so they’ve expanded it’s memory somehow for bigger levels with more data.

The fire mario stage is actually 3 short stages, each with different music, palettes and tiles. All of the boss fights are incredibly well designed, however I DID have one encounter with Dr Light the first time, where he was stuck in a sho-ryu-ken loop flying through the floor upwards.

Sound 10/10 It sounds great. Bomber man stage is a remix of the bomber man theme, the fire mario stage(s) use 3 songs from SMB 1, a little bit of mega man X soundtrack in the opening level. Really well arranged remixes and covers, as well as a few songs I havent heard before.

Difficulty 10/10 Hard First off, this hack is one of those higher difficulty hacks that probably requires savestates or rewind.

However, aside from a few bosses (Fire Mario, Dr Light and Cheat man) it’s perfectly tuned for a medium difficulty experience. Anyone who says this is too hard obviously hasn’t played minus infinity or mega man unlimited.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
