Rockman Deus Ex Machina

Hack of Mega Man 2


Rockman Deus Ex Machina is one of the best sophisticated hacks in Mega Man II history. It is programmed almost every part of the game you’ve never expected before. The boss fights are incredibly hyperactive. Players find this hack a clear winner. Background Music is made by the author of Rockman No Constancy IKA. Additional patches were added by Misty in the Japanese 2ch boards about August 8th such as Hard Body and Weapon Modification. A must play for all expert Mega Man II players. Not newbies. Be sure you patch with the Japanese Rockman 2 ROM.

This game is excellent, it feels like an authentic Rockman game. When you play it, you won’t think of it as a just a mod of Rockman 2. I do not know if the hackers had a famicom and tv screen in mind (I used the NTSC filter) but the background designs look absolutely gorgeous. I really enjoyed in particular the stages that have a very Japanese feel (you will know them when you see them.)

Music : A great new soundtrack (you may recognize a couple of tunes from your favorite games in here!)

Game play mechanics : Finally, Rock can shoot 4 pellets at the same time! All new abilities (more than simple sprite changes I assure you!) I particularly like power ups “2″ and “3″, and how you have to think about using them to clear certain levels in Wily’s Castle. The robot bosses themselves act differently, with a variation on their powers.

Level Design : Without hyperbole, these are some of the best level designs I’ve seen in a Rockman 2 hack. There are often multiple ways to go (for instance a harder “path” at the top of the screen offering a power up.) It is important to note that with the new power-ups, having it in a particular stage can allow you to “skip” over areas that require excellent timing and reflexes. In this way it feels just like an authentic professional release. Throw in the new colors, custom music, and the excellent “flashing” during some of the big boss fights. You will feel a rush of adrenaline and nostalgia (I can almost see the instruction manual with a warning about not using rear projection TV’s, and not to play if you have epilepsy.)

Conclusion : It is just a classic game. Even if you are horrible at Rockman, use save states, cheat. I don’t care, just play this game!

Negative : The only negative is that the intro and upgrade screens are in moon language (aka Japanese ;) )

Go and download! Play it now!
