    Made a mistake concerning the graphical tears.

    Didn't work. Tried rewording the Xenesis credits to fit.

    Wanted to clarify that Xenesis documented the original rom, not my rom. Hopefully that doesn't go over the text-limit. With that, I should be done with updates for now. Thank you! :)

    If "help and advice" isn't acceptable contributions, I suppose cut the two last ones, but then I'd claim the top three edits should be made at least. It looks weird with cut text right now.

Mega Man 5: Protoman Edition

Hack of Mega Man 5


Dr. Wily has captured Mega Man and is framing Protoman for his crimes. Only he can save the situation now…

Play as Protoman with all his abilities from MM9/10, and more!

Use Protoman’s shield to deflect and destroy enemy projectiles, and collect all 8 “Protoman” letters scattered throughout the game to unlock the new powerful Proto Dash.

Two patches, two hacks:

  • Play through the original MM5
  • Play through Second Strike, its new stages and altered gameplay

Also including a handful of fixes and improvements based on the original: the charge shot charging sound now fades out, underwater slide-jumps are now possible, etc

Patch a Mega Man 5 (USA).nes rom.

Mega Man 5: Protoman Edition - Hack for ProtoMan

Reviewed By: diablo666 on 04 Nov 2021

Protoman: Second Strike.

The graphics did not change, but the levels changed - their structure and the location of enemies. The levels are harder, but not difficult. It was interesting to pass each one. The enemies slightly changed their AI, but did not overload them, which is quite balanced levels turned out.

Bosses. Each boss has its own AI, and each is interesting in its own way. To each - the necessary different tactics over the boss, the variety of their tricks - is quite surprising. I was particularly surprised by the final Dark man. You are fighting the same “Protoman”. It also reflects your attacks with a shield , attacks with a Charge, jumps and sometimes slides. Tries to be like MM7.

Protoman in Megaman5 - the same as the original.

Conclusion: the Advantages will be especially on the “Second Strike”… And the original remained the original.

  • These are the levels, the correct location of the enemies and the level of the design - they give an edge to this creation, but do not overload the complexity.
  • The menu is peculiar. You can customize the difficulty of the game in this hack.
  • Bosses. They try very hard to differ from the original. Some characteristics of the main character. Reflection of bullets, some enemy attacks. And there are attacks that will not harm it.
  • New powerful Proto Dash and the change in additional widgets. This is a jet and a spring. It is much more convenient to use them, and Dash - can be used against large enemies that are destroyed immediately.

Neutral: this is a change in history. He’s changed a little, that’s all.

In a minus: it is somehow far rebound after the damage. I probably didn’t play MМ9 or MM10. It seemed out of place. If I’m wrong, I’m sorry.

But, in General, I recommend these two patches for review. But who needs something more interesting, take the “Second Strike” patch.
