Mega Man X New Order

Hack of Mega Man X

Description:

New Order is a level edit hack that completely revamps item collection in Mega Man X. You can now acquire each part of the Light Armor in any order you choose, as well as each Sub Tank and Heart Tank without any prerequisite items. These changes have been made with great care in order to keep the gameplay and progression feeling organic. The only obstacles that have been left in place are stage-specific conditions, such as the ice in Flame Mammoth’s stage or the water in Sting Chameleon’s stage.

If you have any suggestions or encounter any bugs, make sure to leave a review and/or send an email to koriusx@gmail.com.

User Review Information

A much needed improvement.

Reviewed By: Sprite:D on 12 Oct 2021

The original game was obviously not made for armorless runs, leading to a game that’s much less replayable and has much less variety than its sequels. This hack entirely fixes those issues and the game is now truly perfect for armorless runs now and works well. The only issue I have is the Sigma Fortress 1 tower section right after the boss battle against Vile - it’s still a pain to do armorless without using charged weapons, and definitely would be nice to see it improved. Aside from that, the hack does its job well. Great hack!
