** Note: My old site '' is gone. New one is ''.
Please read the comments below. Sorry about the 8bit-ish graphics, but they are the only ones appropriate given this games sheer size. Lastly, if you run into a problem with the keys, speed, music, graphics, stages, etc, USE the information link in the game!

Note: Recently (2008) I've found why the games speed runs inconsistently. Sadly, this ones to far gone to fix it. There will be a Remix version of this one out sometime far in the future to fix all that stuff and improve on the game engine like I have done in Megaman Next Remix. Also my normal website has gone from being to and is being rebuilt slowly.

<<Default Controls (Use customize to change)>>
Arrow Keys = Move, D = Attack, S = Jump, A = Dash, E = Special, ENTER = Crusher, BACKSPACE = Pause.
- The game is best played with a gamepad or joystick. See the details at this link for easy steps to do so:
- You may need to set this to low-quality to help speed it up, or high-quality to slow it down.

<< Notes >>
- Despite the title, this is NOT a Megaman game in the traditional sense. It plays the way I like it (fast and furious with auto-jump/dash) rather than Capcom's style. Please don't expect a game engine like Capcom's because that was NOT my goal for this.
- This is a full length game (actually 4 of them). If you don't practice or aren't good with platform games you will be killed.
- If this version runs slow for you, there is a stripped down low-quality version on my site. If it runs to fast for you, try opening a few programs in the background to take away some resources.
- MMXN is a sidestory to my comic "Rick's Adventure : Legends" and is not part of the Capcom universe.
- The intro stage link on the title will take you to the intro level.
- The demo link will take you to a practice room to get familiar with the characters and controls.
- A metric ton of information is presented in the 'Instructions' and 'Info' section on the title screen. As well as links to the ability list and strategy guides.
- Since this is a real game, don't expect the bosses to roll over and die for you. They WILL try to kill you to the best of their ability. This a game for those who are good at fast & aggressive platform games.
- This fella has 6 unique playable characters, 28 Abilities, 4 Different Storylines, 4 Different Difficulty settings, 21 Little baddies, 8 Maverick Bosses, 4 Final Bosses, and 4 Story bosses, 13 Normal Stages, and 5 Bonus Stages all crammed into 4200k. So the sound/picture quality had to take a bump down to make it fit. That's also why it's not done in 32bit graphics/sound because of space restrictions.
- To prevent people on lower systems from cheesing through the game and getting credit since it runs slow as a snail, only WinXP, Win2000, and Mac9+ can get credit for beating the game. Others systems can play through the entire thing, it just won't give you the cheat codes for beating it. My apologies to all this affects, but it's in the name of fairness.

megaman x next

not very good the game was kinda hard, no humor, violence very little, sound (well i had my speakers off), graphics 4 because it doesnt show megaman shoot when he jumps and if it did it was for a split second. so yeah it was ok i guess... i give it a 4

maelstormm responds:

The difficulty is intentional to weed out the weak and give a challenge to the strong. X (And Plague/SiC) only shows his shot animation for a second if you are just shooting 1 shot, charge and you'll see it longer. Fair enough I guess.


Rated 5 / 5 stars

good stuff

awsome man, ten different shades of awsome

Fun but too much

You need to cut down on how much stuff happens on screen at once. Some parts are also incredibly tough, to a fault. That part where the lava rises is impossible, and the millions of enemies that randomly pop up detract from the fun. Could be great with come changes.

maelstormm responds:

Fair enough, but the game is meant to be challenging and filled with baddies. That was intentional. If you are having probs check out the strategy guide (bosses are still pending in it).


Rated 5 / 5 stars

Nice Work!

Nice work Maelstormm, I think the game is quite unique in it's closeness to the original. Great animation, the fluid motion of the shots are to be questioned but thanks for making another great add-on to newgrounds.

maelstormm responds:

No problem :)
