    Hack Update.

    Status changed to unfinished. It explains in the description "it only translates story text, but not battle and menu text". Even the menu and battle screenshots don't have any Vietnamese in! I really wonder why marking a story text-only translation as fully playable...

Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

What the hack contains:

  • Minor text edits
  • Slightly altered title screen
  • The game now uses SRAM

The main feature of this hack is that the password system has been replaced with a save system. Whenever you complete a stage, the game will save the completed stage, your lives, E-Tanks, and the special items you obtain from Dr. Light.

RetroRain chose to call this hack Mega Man II: The Mystery of Dr. Wily, because the Japanese version is called Rockman 2: Dr. Wily no Nazo, which means “The Mystery of Dr. Wily” in English. So, this patch is simply an update to the English Mega Man II that was released.

A Good Hack, indeed.

Reviewed By: JamesSullivan3 on 18 Oct 2016

While this is indeed a wonderful hack, one I would definitely recommend, doing away with the password system altogether and allowing the ability to save, I can’t help but feel it’s missing something. Namely, the ability to revisit the stages, which is a matter of simple hex-editing. Other than that, I would definitely recommend this hack.

Version 1.1 Recommended - Yes
