This hack understands game design

Reviewed By: PowerPanda on 25 Feb 2021

I normally don’t like hacks that remove features because they “broke the game”, but this hack understands not just what feature needed to be removed, but why. I have played every single Megaman Game, and I love the charge shot… in Megaman X on forward (plus Megaman 11). In the classic games, particularly on NES, Capcom made the charge shot work by making the regular shot almost worthless. It was very hard to kill an enemy coming at you unless you had a charge ready to go. This hack not only removes the charge, but rebalances the rest of the game so that the non-charged shot is worthwhile. I was on the fence about my favorite NES megaman game, but with this hack, I can easily say that it’s MM4.
