What's New in Version 1.03.20
・“ENDLESS” mode is added to “RANKING MODE”!
Ok, here's the scoop.
Megaman X is a great game for the SNES. This app is a great rendition of a classic game. Granted, yes, the controls may be a little choppy when you first play it, but there are enough options in the settings to set the buttons and controls the way you like. You can set up the dash/jump combo to the best of the apps ability and it is still satisfactory. There are a few dialogue changes (upsetting I know... As well as 'zeros theme' music after the first vile confrontation), but nothing that really takes away from the story. People will say the controls are choppy and the graphics are laggy but in all honesty, if you can realize that you are working with a system.. I don't know... 1/20th of the size of an SNES console and 1/3 the size of an SNES cartridge, then you will be able to accept the small little glitches that can easily be overlooked or programmed out. This app doesnt deserve the amount onnegatice activity some people give it. This app is Definitely worth it and is just as entertaining as the original. You have nothing to worry about as an A) dedicated Megaman series fanatic B) originals fanatic or C) picky game player, you will be satisfied by this app and I really hope they bring the other games from the SNES to the App Store. It's be awesome to hold on to classical games like this by updating them the way thy did with this game and not havin them on just the wii store.
Enjoy this app everybody!!
Capcom's Best iOS Port To Date
First of all, when you're purchasing any game of this nature from the app store, you should bear in mind the fact that there will be obvious limitations presented by porting from a controller to a touch screen.
However, given the limitations, Megaman X is actually very playable on my iPhone 4S. I'm not having any of the frame rate issues that others have described. The game runs beautifully and once you get the hang of the touch controls (I highly recommend using the auto charge option on your M. buster and use down on the D-Pad for dash), you won't even notice that you're playing it on your iDevice.
The reason I gave 4 stars is mainly due to a lack of authenticity. First of all, the screen goes black in between each section of the level, which definitely takes away from the gameplay (the original used a smooth, side-scroll transition between screens). Secondly, as others have mentioned, as you beat bosses, various things are supposed to happen to the other levels - like when you beat chill penguin, the lava is no longer supposed to be harmful in flame mammoth's level.
Aside from these few things, I love this iOS port and am already working on my second playthrough.
Side note: don't buy the in-app purchases. You're cheating yourself and taking away from the real spirit of megaman. It's SUPPOSED to be hard. You've gotta find your upgrades and learn the boss' moves.
Could of been better
Well I would like to say this there are a lot of things that keep me from saying 5 🌟 like there are a lot graphical animation missing such as at the end of storm eagle stage there isn't an elevator that take you up but that's a nitpick. also the gameplay is changed cause its not one big stage but rooms like the classic megaman and the effects that you get from killing bosses isn't here like when I kill chill penguin I expect flame mammoth stage's lava to be frozen but it isn't. Also I can't collect 1 ups. Also it seems pulling off the haduken is harder to pull I know it ⬆➡🔥 but I can never pull It off. But all these things don't keep it from being a good port. There a lot of option to chose from there score , time, and survival so you can see your ranking theres easy for beginners normal for people who have played it and are expert hard if you really want a challenge ( trust me you want to have u mastered this game before you do that). It's worth the money and fast to complete. I give it four stars
