The Adventure of Bass II

Hack of Mega Man 2

Description:

This is a pretty large change of Mega Man 2. The main features include altered levels (altered both color wise and structure wise), altered colors (different enemy palettes, a altered sprites, and even a different storyline. Gamers should find the hack more challenging than the original Mega Man 2.

The game is basically Bass being the hero and Dr. Light as the enemy.

Master of Palettes

Reviewed By: Mother Kojiro on 27 Nov 2017

Though your mileage may vary, this is probably my favorite Mega Man 2 hack of all time. Full disclosure: I love palette swaps, and this game has some of the most beautiful palettes I’ve ever seen on the NES. Air Man’s stage is just slightly off from the original, but it’s just enough to give it an entirely new feel. Flash Man’s stage has been redone with several different colors as bright as an electric popsicle. Quick Man’s stage is neat, but when you get to the Hotheads, the background changes to a beautiful dim blue that simulates what a room would look like were it lit only by a blue flame. Wood Man’s stage has trees with leaves in a color that shouldn’t be able to even exist, but I’m glad that it does. Bubble Man’s stage has gorgeous orange waters that remind me of the _9 rounds in Penguin Land on the SEGA Master System. Even the Wily stages are great; the third stage in particular blends what might be the only shades of red and green that go well together. Even the enemies are beautifully colored, from the pink Fan Fiends to the golden fish in Wily 3. The level design is mostly fair; it has a few jerk moments, but so does the original game, so no love lost. This isn’t a total overhaul of the game, but it’s far more than I’d expected - I just wanted to play as Bass, because he’s cool - and a work of absolute beauty. Sivak Drak, if you’re reading this, I’d still be elated if you ever finished and released The Adventure of Bass 3!
