Playable Roll in Megaman 2! Need I say more?

Reviewed By: Satoshi_Matrix on 18 Dec 2014

Zynk Oxhyde again brings love to the Megaman classic series with his Roll-Chan hack of the classic Megaman 2. This is a complete character hack of MM2 that allows Rock’s sister Roll to enjoy the spotlight.

Unlike the older Roll-Chan 2 hack by Yuifa, this one is a thorough and complete hack of Megaman 2, replacing everything Megman specific with Roll’s likeness. All her sprite frames, the Get Weapon Portrait, 1-Ups, even the opening and ending are all changed to reflect the new playable character.

In addition, there are new custom 8×8 pixel icons for the weapons, replacing the generic letters that represent the weapons in the original game. For example, instead of an M to represent the Metal Blade, now a new icon that actually looks like a jagged metal disc appears. This change makes quickly selecting the weapon you want a breeze.

With all this said, keep in mind this is a mere graphical hack that doesn’t alter the levels or other gameplay elements of Megaman 2 at all. Preexisting issues with Megaman 2 still remain, such as only being able to fire nine Crash Bombs, the metal blades are extremely overpowered, the difficulty is uneven, and so on.

What is rather nice though is that Zynk is offering four versions his hack - two for Megaman 2 (U) and two for Rockman 2 (J). The two versions for each region are Roll in her Megaman 1-7 outfit, and the other garbs her in her Megaman 8 outfit. Both outfits look as good as the NES sprite limitations will allow.

Overall, this is a recommended hack for those who want to give Roll some spotlight.
