User Review Information
Seriously not all that bad, don't get what the fuss is about.Reviewed By: Will331999 on 19 Jan 2023
Let me start out by saying that I’m not too much of a classic Megaman fan, like, at all. Didn’t grow up with them, I don’t even really like them.
However I did find some enjoyment out of this. Even if it was janky at times, the fact it was made in a week still impressed me.
If you focus on the level design however, I feel you are entirely missing the point of this hack. Its purpose is to showcase the MUSIC not the level design. And with that, I’d say it succeeds. The music is expertly crafted, a wonderful showcase of the programs capabilities. It’s worth playing to hear these remixes in my opinion.
Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
