This ROM hack is a major overhaul of Mega Man 4 that changes the original game so much that it can almost be considered a new game altogether. In fact, with the exception of the names of the 8 robot masters, very little is left from the original game.
Mega Man 4 Voyage strives to be one of the most extensive Mega Man ROM hacks to be 100% completed and released to date, with an original storyline, new places to explore, reprogrammed robot master AIs, an improved weapon arsenal, new fortress bosses and an enormous soundtrack with almost 40 original songs to accompany it all. At the same time, it still tries to stick to the “run, jump and shoot” formula of the original classic Mega Man games. The hack should be suitable for veterans and casual players alike; it is more difficult than the original Mega Man 4, but easier than most other ROM hacks and fan games out there.
What started as a one-man project has resulted in a fine collaboration between DurfarC (main author, level design, programming, music), MartsINY (main boss designer, programming) and chiptune composers Golden Shades, RRThiel, Cosmic Gem and MarkTherence. Furthermore, the hack incorporates patches, programming assets and graphics from a wide range of people.
Please check out the README file for more information about the hack, including more detailed credits. Enjoy!

Just funReviewed By: bibble89 on 08 Feb 2020
I’m not much for reviewing things, but decided to start on this site, as the reviews here have lead to me playing so many great games.
I’m almost finished this game and am blown away by how authentic it feels. As others have said, it feels like Nintendo themselves made it.
New music, cool ideas, changed boss AI, and great stage design; something most hacks lack I feel.
The biggest factor is that this is fun to play. I’ve played a few other Mega Man hacks, as well as full Mega Man fan games (Unlimited and 2.5D), and this is right up there with any of them as far as the fun factor goes.
The only thing that I could possibly complain about, is that the boss weaknesses cause too much damage. The boss AI is so fun to play against, you almost don’t want to beat them so easily.
I’m a Mega Man veteran, and am good at the games, but not great. The difficulty is very similar to the originals. I usually play through the originals every few years, and I think I’ll be playing this along side them when I do.
