Mixes things up in a good way!

Reviewed By: Sosuko on 12 Sep 2021

Note: This playthrough was on the “hard” version of the hack. As far as I could tell, the only difference was that you have far less invincibility on taking damage.

This hack is definitely a good one for Rockman 5. The level design is pretty strong throughout (though some sections are so easy that they basically serve no purpose), and the mechanics of the levels are used in creative ways. It also subverts expectations a bit by having the gimmicks of some levels put into different ones. For example, you’ll be underwater for a large part of Charge Man’s stage, and fighting Star Man takes place in an inverted gravity room. The adjustments to enemies and weapons are also welcome changes, and there are good quality of life adjustments like fast ladder climbing.

One thing that was a little lacking in terms of level design was the use of the utility items like Rush Jet and Super Arrow. Both were used very rarely for bonus items or progression in Wily Stages, with one Rush Jet section literally being as simple as “fly over a small pit with no obstacles in your way”. Still, the new boss AI is particularly enjoyable and adds some spice to the playthrough which I thoroughly enjoyed on the hard difficulty. The only gripe I have in that department was the final boss’s 1st form, which basically requires good RNG to beat since it gives you very little room and time to react to the 3-4 different attacks.

Overall, I had a lot of fun with the hack and would definitely recommend it, just don’t expect it to be something entirely different
