What's New in Version 1.5.2
- updated for iOS 4 support
- minor bug fixes
Very faithful port
Pretty much everyone thinking of buying this app is a mega man fan, so I'll give you he info that you need to know. Nothin is removed or cut out of this game, it's the full mega man 2. It has been tweaked a little and reworked a little. For instance, some enemies like the guys on clouded throw lightning twice as fast, the shrimp in bubble mans stage move extremely quick, and some enemy attack patters are more unpredictable now. Other than that the original games bugs have been removed and there are new features (like the save feature) that are great. Easy mode is WAY too easy, and normal is just a little too hard sometimes. Also all the boss robots are a lot weaker. Ultimately though all the changes made are small and insignificant to the whole game, and on top of that most of he changes make the game even better. If you like mega man 2 AT ALL or ANY mega man game for that matter, get this. Fun classic gameplay, tight controls, solid frame rates and no crappy NES sprite flicker. PLUS it's only 99 cents. Get it! Now!
best for iPad
this game is a quite faithful and fun port if the original mega man 2, one if the best nintendo entertainment system games made. This port, however, seems to be intended for the ipad and not the iPhone. Because the iPad and iPhone have no buttons, the app has to virtualize them, they appear on the touch screen itself. This actually works very well if you have an iPad and expanded the app to fit the screen (this is achievable by selecting the "x2" button on the corner of the screen if the app appears to fit only half of your screen.) Best played in landscape mode to better allow use of the virtual buttons, about half of the screen is used for controlling the game and the other half for viewing it. On the iPhone this is a different story. One must squint their eyes just to see what is going on, and the buttons are too small to be of use. Final verdict: a must have for gamers on the iPad... But for iPhone owner it's best to try to avoid setups like this.
Good, but could be better
Being a huge Megaman fan, with it having always been my favorite game series, I had very high expectations for this (as high as an app game port can be). It's a pretty good port, one of the best out there. It is basically the same in every way as the original with some minor differences noted in most of the other reviews.
Really what would make this game a million times better, which would allow me to give it 5 stars, would be if there was an option to use blue tooth to connect a wiimote to it. The touch screen controls are very difficult to use, as they are for most games. Since the buttons are not physical, your fingers can easily drift away from them while you're paying attention to the game rather than where your fingers are located. This is really my biggest problem with this game. If that could be tweaked then this would be my favorite game app of all time.
(It appears that the last update was in 2010, so it's highly unlikely)
