I can't believe I finally finished it. I didn't think I'd have it on time but here it is! Now, it's still a little buggy and I've not had time to polish some stuff off or try to improve performance. Saying that, I've testing it on my uber rubbish laptop from 2007 and it seems to run ok on that. I'll be uploading a stand alone version sometime in the next few days.

So here's my tribute for Pico Day, a de-make of Cathode Raybots! Hopefully you'll enjoy it *fingers crossed* Blood, sweat and tears went into this!

CONTROLS:
Arrows: Move
A: Shoot
S: Jump
Enter: Menu
+/- Buttons: Change Volume

Like I said, given more time, I would of polished it up more, added some more levels/mini bosses and generally tried to improve performance, but hopefully it'll be fine for what it is!

Enjoy and HAPPY PICO 2014!
-Joel

I've never played an authentic Mega-Man title so i'll just drop some tips/issues[?] without comparison to MM.

TIPS/ISSUES(?)
#1 ) You can hold more than the visible 9 lives and 9 energy cells in the pause menu. -> Stock up.
#2 ) Explore everywhere. Beamy's level has an Extra Life AND an Energy Cell hidden above where you start. This is not always certain, as DEATH has been hidden there as well. -> At the first bit of open sky, use a Party Balloon to jump above the level and keep jumping left. After gaining 1up and E, quickly exit out of the level b4 you die. Repeat as needed...
#3 ) ...Actually, the Extra Life, Energy Cell, Ammo and Life Refills seem to be a generic level handling behavior for whenever the player walks above and past the left most part of any section in a level. -> Bomby's level has open sky at the very start and is therefore the easiest and quickest level to stock up on necessities.

#4 ) There are many places you can use a Party Balloon to jump outside the visible level and avoid Baddies. -> Bomby and Tommy's vertical descent sections are the best examples and can be completely bypassed by simply jumping above and to the right of the visible level and falling. Using this trick on Shieldy's vertical descent will not work.

#5 ) Second to the Party Balloon, the shield is the best tool for reducing midair collisions and knock-back during all those jump-challenges over bottomless pits. Our illustrious author has a fetish for pits and beating the snot out of the player, judging from some of his other retro submissions. (not a complaint, just an observation.)
#6 ) The unorthodox, back-to-back positioning of the Raybots in the Level Select Screen is actually a clue to MOST of the bots' weaknesses....
#7 ) ....the Fire mini-boss is easily wiped out with Beam, but Sword and Shield are effective at hurting him and cleaning up his fires.

#8 ) Medal help. If some of the weapon medals haven't registered, make backups of all your sol files, then remove one of the sol files and restart the game when you have a consistent internet connection.

Bug
#1 ) Pause Menu volume doesn't get adjusted.

Every bit as frustrating as a megaman game should be. Great job!
