Great palettes and music, questionable level design

Reviewed By: Sosuko on 31 Aug 2021

Ultimately, I would recommend this, but just barely. It utilizes very unique level palettes from other games like SMW2, Donkey Kong Country, and Kirby pretty well, and also has some great music to go along with it (for the most part). Each stage felt very alive and distinct from the originals, making it somewhat memorable (which can be difficult for a mostly Vanilla romhack). In addition, the new enemies, modified bosses, and modified weapons keep it interesting throughout. Aside from the Robot Masters, several of the Protoman/Wily bosses have also been changed up to surprisingly different forms.

All this being said, the game is brutally hard at points, and not in a good way. Cheap enemy placement and far-spaced checkpoints make some levels a chore to get through, and things get particularly bad in the Wily stages. The worst offender by far are the dark rooms, which the other reviewer mentioned. They are used in more than one Wily stage and require you to slowly use weapons like Water Wave and Napalm bomb to navigate a completely dark room with numerous holes and hazards placed throughout. As a small one-time gimmick, it may not have been so bad, but again, they are used in more than one Wily stage. Why? They are slow, tedious, cheap, and honestly are just better skipped via the use of save states if you value your time and sanity. As you can tell, they left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth, which is a shame given how well the hack had been going up to that point
