Mega Man 7 Refit

Hack of Mega Man 7

Description:

Have you ever noticed how completely useless the Mega Buster is in Mega Man 7? How about the really short invulnerability period Megaman has after being injured? Have you ever wished someone would come along and do something about it? Well, you’re in luck because someone finally has!

Introducing “Mega Man 7 Refit,” a ROM hack which makes Mega Man 7 a little more like those old NES classics in a few minor, but significant ways:

  • Shorter charge times mean you can fire more Charged Shots more often! Teach those robots a lesson!
  • Increased invulnerability makes scooting across spikes much less tricky! Just don’t take too long!
  • Refreshed graphics, such as fonts which harken back to those old NES classics! It’s so old… it’s new!
  • Is there more? You’ll just have to play it and see!

So if you’re looking for a little change to your boring old Mega Man 7 gameplay experience, give this hack a try! It may satisfy that itch for something slightly new!

v1.2.0 Update

Wouldn’t you know it? More graphic and text changes! Wowie! Oh, and individual patches for every little upgrade this baby has to offer.

Yes, you can now have a faster Buster, longer invulnerability times, and even refresh the graphics in your favorite Mega Man 7 (US) hacks… like, say, Mega Man 7 Restoration!

How cool is that?

How it should have been from the start

Reviewed By: Red Soul on 12 Jul 2021

What can I say? To me, due to a collection of bad design decisions, Mega Man 7 has always been a sort of black sheep in the franchise.

While the game is visually and aurally very pleasant, it was a hot mess mechanically. Long winded animations got in the way (cool to look at, but wasted I-frames), the buster was, for no good reason, weaker than it had been for 6 whole games at that point and there are a whole slew of little annoyances that add up for an experience that leaves to be desired.

Then this hack swoops in and saves the day, addressing so many of these issues that it makes replaying the game not a chore, but a joy!

Not only that, giving the player the ability to customize the experience to their liking? it doesn’t get much better than that.
