    A certain user pointed out that the graphics are garbled when applying a patch using by online patcher. I confirmed the same issue a while ago. I never used the online patcher before, so I didn't notice that. I was able to play without any problems with the file download method. I don't know the cause of the issue, but I decided to upload the IPS file again.

Not too shabby

Reviewed By: Supergamerguy on 14 Jan 2021

I feel that this hack was created with a lot of love and respect for both series it draws inspiration from. Sonic levels and themes are well represented here, as are a plethora of Mega Man enemies and bosses from the original game (good choice picking Mega Man 3 for all of its content to pull from). The robot master levels are pretty well designed, with just the right amount of enemies and obstacles to provide a decent challenge for all players alike. And swapping the Mega Man 3 bosses with the Doc Robot Mega Man 2 bosses for the bosses found at the end of the Robot Master stages was an interesting choice that makes for a fresh experience for Mega Man 3 veterans. However, it’s not like this game is without its flaws: the music on the Aquatic Ruins stage is warped and hard on the ears, some of the Dr. Wily stages are unfairly difficult, and the Mega Man 3 robot masters have been swapped out for generic light blue outlines of their former selves. Despite these problems, I still think this hack is recommendable and enjoyable for fans of Mega Man and Sonic alike. Just one question though, where is Sonic himself?
