Attention span: 7/10 It is a big game so you probably won't keep it on your calc for awhile, but it also takes over an hour to beat.
Controls: 4/10 Slow like everything else in this game
Implementation: 5/10 Sparse shooting, quirky jumping, not much level/boss variety, but a cool password system
Overall: 6/10 I enjoyed it... for an hour

The long-awaited game finally comes to the 82. Was it worth it? I don't think so.

My biggest complaint (of many) with the game is the unbelievably bloated size. At 22KB, you would think that there would be much more to this game than there was. For a side-scrolling shooter, you certainly don't get to shoot much. There are 9 bosses, but in reality there are only 3 different kinds of bosses; ones that shoot, ones that are the weapons, and ones that stand still firing a weapon that you can't dodge. Also there is only one kind of enemy, and it is so easy to kill it is laughable. Actually, the whole game's difficulty is rather laughable when you think about it. All you have to do is beat Mad Man, then use his screaming siren to kill all the other bosses.

And that is not all. The game seems painfully slow at times unlike most ASM games. Of all things, without a doubt the most annoying is the jumping. 990f the time that I died, it was due to the precision jumping required in the game. I think my main problem was that the game was so slow that I jumped early due to being impatient.

The game isn't all bad though. It certainly is unique. The overall Mega-Man gameplay is intact, but shooting is so sparse the game resembles Plain Jump, where the purpose is to jump from platform to platform without falling into holes. Another unique thing about this game is that it is LONG. Don't expect to beat it in one study.

If you are a person who likes to fill his memory deficient 82 with a slow 22K game, then this game is for you. Otherwise, download it, keep it on your calc for a week, then delete it.
