Description and Storyline
Mega Man Reloaded is a simple Mega Man 1 hack. It has new graphics, new layout and design, and music ported from Mega Man 2!
“Wily got out of prison and he secretly built up his new base on a small island. He stole and reprogrammed Light’s first 6 robot masters from the Robot Museum, to get revenge for being defeated for the 11th time. Dr. Wily sent them across the world to cause total chaos! Will Mega Man be able to stop Wily once again?!”

Glitches and Notes
- Glitch: The Final Boss Room Backscrolling. Doesn’t seem to be fixable. Can be performed in the original game too.
- Glitch: When you die at the Final Boss while holding right and don’t releasing it until respawning successfully will make you glitch into Wily’s room. Just don’t abuse this.
- Note: Magnet Beam is ONLY obtainable on Cut Man’s stage. (You still must have Elec Beam or Super Arm to obtain it.)

User Review Information
Really good, but could have done without the MM2 tracksReviewed By: Thirteen 1355 on 20 Sep 2019
This hack is incredibly potent, and in my opinion better than the original Mega Man. This makes me just want to replay this game every two years rather than the vanilla game.
However, the Mega Man 2 music kind of ruins that idea, for Mega Man 2 (which most people tend to play after Mega Man 1) will have the exact same music as this hack. There was nothing wrong with the original Mega Man 1 music, so I don’t see why it was replaced in the first place.
It feels both pointless and plain annoying for people who see this as the definitive way to play the original Mega Man, who will then continue on to play Mega Man 2 with the exact same music playing, diminishing the sense of uniqueness of a stage.
