Not too impressive, but still fun to play.

Reviewed By: RRThielNC on 07 Oct 2014

For the most part, it feels like the only Rockman 5 hacks out there are Wily’s Dream Space, then an ocean of half-assed Chiko hacks. That makes it pretty nice when a hack like this comes along.

Think of this as pretty much Rockman 2 Yendor Code, but for Rockman 5. In a lot of Youtube let’s plays of this hack, it is mostly stated that this hack is very similar to Yendor Code, and I would be inclined to agree with them. It may be pretty redundant to say this, but my thoughts on both hacks pretty much mirror each other in a pretty basic way.

But I’m getting off topic. Rockman 5 YH is a hack brought to us by Rock5Easily, the creator of the Rockman Endless hacks. This hack, while not changing the graphics or music, still changes the level design, A.I, and weapons.

I’ll start off with the weapons. Crystal Man’s weapon flies at an ark and bounces off the floor, Gravity Man’s weapon is your run-of-the-mill invincibility in a can weapon, Gyro Man’s weapon is a Metal Blade clone(this is not a bad thing), Star Man and Charge Man’s weapons are more or less the same, Wave Man’s weapon goes in three directions at once, Napalm man’s weapon is faster, and can be shot in 8 directions, and Stone Man’s weapon shoots 2 stones in front of you, and 1 behind you.

The enemy and boss A.I is pretty nice. The enemy A.I is only different with a select few of enemies, but the enemies that are changed are nicely done. The boss A.I is also well done. Unlike Yendor Code, each boss provides just enough challenge, without getting too brutal, and are also lots of fun to fight. Also, just thought I’d mention it here, but YH will NEVER come close to the difficulty of Yendor Code.

The level design is very polished and fun. It’s quite a breath of fresh air when compared to the Rockman 5 hack norm, which seems to be making it a difficult as possible. Just like the bosses, the difficulty level is just right. It never gets too hard and never gets too easy, making this hack pretty damned fun!

In conclusion, Rockman 5 YH, while not as pretty as other hacks, is still pretty good. It’s perfect with it’s difficulty, it’s A.I changes are pretty impressive, and overall, it’s just fun to play. I say you should give it a try!
