Mega Man II Simplified

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

The purpose of this hack was to make the original Mega Man II much easier for gamers that find games that aren’t too incredibly tough more enjoyable.

Key changes:

The vast majority of spikes and bottomless pits are eliminated. There are still some left in to provide at least some challenge.

The player has a larger capacity of Bubble Lead, Metal Blade, Quick Boomerang, and Crash Bomb.

This hack was created with the use of the Rockman2 Editor Level Editor.

I am a 2020 player and I never had a problem with the original harder Megaman 2 game, but I was curious to test this hack.

Well, the good intentions are there, but the level designs decisions are very questionable and they are not totally good, for example there is a deep pit in Metal Man ’s stage where the player character can’t escape in anyway, as a consequence player must turn off the game and start again.

In the other situations certain sections of levels become pointless, for example the beginning of Bubble man’s stage had already few smal enemies.

The powers are unbalanced because some powers are now useless here, and at the same time the player will find unescapable parts (get stucked without death) where is worse than a harder game.

Megaman 2 was a GOOD game, the challenge level was all right, the only real flaw is this: Player can’t refill a mandatory special weapon in the final stage of the game which is necessary to make a minimal damage to the last boss(fortunately there is a Refill weapon patch made by Thirteen 1355 that fixes this problem).

This Megaman II Simplified doesn’t even care about the Final Stage which is still a empty stage and player can’t refill the only useful weapon tank to make damage to the last boss. SPOILER:Bubble lead

Like I said, there are some level designs where you can get stucked, so I don’t really recommend this until, maybe if it gets more polished.

If you really want a real Easy mode for Megaman 2 without unnecessary changes in the level designs, there is a “Mega Man II Weapon Hack” patch around here in this site that you may check out better.

If there is a game that really deserve a level design change, it must be Megaman 1, only for the magnet beam part, but that’s not aplicable to talk here.
