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.

Pretty good; kinda anti-climatic

Reviewed By: Sosuko on 28 Aug 2020

It doesn’t do anything crazy, but this hack has some pretty interesting level design (sprawling levels, well-executed vertical sections, etc…). The challenge is fair throughout, and anyone experienced with the base game should be able to get through everything OK. Though the AI isn’t really altered for bosses, the boss rooms themselves are designed in a way that mixes up the strategies a little bit (it also makes Fireman much more “fair” to fight without his weakness). The last stages had some unique design that forces you clear out blocks via Elecman’s weapon, but the actual Wily bosses are unchanged. Also, the final boss gauntlet is actually significantly easier than the base game, which makes it a little anti-climatic to finish the game.

Overall, solid hack for any fans of the original!
