Mega Man 2 Revamped

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

In similar fashion to the “Mega Man 3 Revamped” hack released in 2019, Mega Man 2 Revamped seeks to polish and refine, and “revamp” Mega Man 2, while honoring the original’s design.

Level design has been altered to take better advantage of underutilized enemies and mechanics; weapons have been rebalanced with tweaks and new features to be more useful instead of Metal Blades hogging all the glory; various bugs and annoyances have been fixed; most stages have new visual flourishes.

For a full list of changes, see the README.

Enjoy!

The Way It Should Have Been!!

Reviewed By: Juaramboocha on 23 Sep 2022

Much like in Mega Man 3 Revamped, the game has received numerous graphical embellishment which is a great introduction.

Apart from that the level design has been massively improved to be more consistent and more enjoyable, every level has been changed for the better.

One aspect this rom hack does better than 3 Revamped is the weapon balance.

Every one of them has a purpose and none are broken. Air Shooter, Crash Bomber, Leaf Shield and Time Stopper are massively better, Bubble Lead and Atomic Fire are now decent but definitely the two lesser weapons. On top of all that, the new nerfed Metal Blade feels right at home.

Bosses have been slightly changed to be more balanced and/or just feel better ie. no sprite flickering in wood, new arena for flash, air has better tornadoes etc. etc.

The Wily Castle has new life breathed into it, WILY 4 in particular is a great level.

All of these positive changes i mentioned come together in the hack perfectly.

While Mega Man 3 Revamped felt like an upgraded version of MM3, this feels like a proper remake. The definitive way to play Mega Man 2.
