** Note: My old site 'maelstormm.com' is gone. New one is 'legacymaelstormm.com'.
After doing all these lil games, I figured why not parody my own stuff and this is what came out. Ended up going with the old 8bit-ish type graphics for performance, ease to make and if it works for Mega Man 9, then why not here ^_^
Before diving into all the stuff that's crammed into this lil' test run, please please please read the instructions. The link opens a new window so popup blockers may get in the way. The game is intended to be very fast and very aggressive with just as much in common with a twitch shooter game as a traditional Mega Man one.
This has the complete first stage and Dr Light's lab (stage select screen is just to show the robot masters) in it as well as:
>> All the special weapons from Mega Man 1, Mega Man 2, Mega Man 3, Mega Man 4, Mega Man 5, Mega Man 6, Mega Man 7, Mega Man 8 (except that soccer ball >.>), Stardroids, Extra Gameboy weapons, Mega Man and Bass and 20 new weapons for the bosses of this game.
>> 3 buster types (Mega Buster, Dark Buster and Lion Buster)
>> Rush, Beat, Tango are all available from the pause menu to help you out. You can also do a fusion move with each one to give up some firepower in exchange for mobility.
>> Rush Jet and Rush Marine sections.
>> 18 different talents to spec the smurf many different ways (World of Megacraft?)
Since this is just a test run, you already have all the weapons, busters, pets, armors and are Level 20. Inside of Dr Light's lab is a place you can go to level up and spend your talent points (Press Up to interact with it, hard to miss it once you see it). All odds are there may be a bug or two here and there, and with over 100 weapons there's bound to be a few that need some balancing.
It's also probably quite hard for most, so to try and help I gave a link to a video showing the playthrough of it. Won't be a cakewalk for sure if you have slow reflexes as anyone who played my other games can probably attest.
Anyhow, have fun, blow stuff up, yadda yadda. Full game will probably be out in a year or so.
