Mega Man 4 Voyage

Hack of Mega Man 4

Description:

This ROM hack is a major overhaul of Mega Man 4 that changes the original game so much that it can almost be considered a new game altogether. In fact, with the exception of the names of the 8 robot masters, very little is left from the original game.

Mega Man 4 Voyage strives to be one of the most extensive Mega Man ROM hacks to be 100% completed and released to date, with an original storyline, new places to explore, reprogrammed robot master AIs, an improved weapon arsenal, new fortress bosses and an enormous soundtrack with almost 40 original songs to accompany it all. At the same time, it still tries to stick to the “run, jump and shoot” formula of the original classic Mega Man games. The hack should be suitable for veterans and casual players alike; it is more difficult than the original Mega Man 4, but easier than most other ROM hacks and fan games out there.

What started as a one-man project has resulted in a fine collaboration between DurfarC (main author, level design, programming, music), MartsINY (main boss designer, programming) and chiptune composers Golden Shades, RRThiel, Cosmic Gem and MarkTherence. Furthermore, the hack incorporates patches, programming assets and graphics from a wide range of people.

Please check out the README file for more information about the hack, including more detailed credits. Enjoy!

Mega Man 4 Voyage - EXCELLENT

Reviewed By: Dobu_GM on 01 Jun 2020

Mega Man 4 Voyage

Levels: Excellent

Graphics: Good

Music: EXCELLENT

Enemies: Good (”new” enemies are foes from sequel games)

Bosses: Excellent

Weapons: Good

Castle: Excellent

Difficulty: EASY-MEDIUM (final boss is pretty tough)

Comments: DurfarC’s Mega Man 4 Voyage is a masterpiece. It’s a thoughtful blend of old and new, combining the best aspects of Mega Man 4 with a staggering amount of phenomenal, jaw-dropping programming. Expect a lot of unexpected surprises as you play through it, as well as a very reasonable difficulty curve that never gets as oppressive as the more popular hacks. The only bad aspect of Voyage is that it relies very heavily on nostalgia—there are no truly “unique” bosses in the game—but the quality of the hack proves that you don’t need shiny-new graphics to create an unforgettable experience. Voyage isn’t just an impressive feat, but also a musical marvel; the soundtrack alone makes it worth a play (check out Toad Man’s stage for proof)! Highly, highly recommended.
