It’s amazing to think that Megaman also known as Rockman, is one of Capcom’s most famous game franchises and one of the most renowned games of all time. It was first released in 1987 on the NES and has spawned many other Mega Man games in the series including games made by the fans. And it is this fan game ‘ Mega Man: The Sequel Wars ‘ which aims to impress. It doesn’t just have high grade retro visuals, but fantastic gameplay, new characters to play with and smooth controls for the Sega Mega Drive.

Here is what the website says about the game. “Mega Man: The Sequel Wars is a fan-made homebrew remake of Mega Man 4, 5 and 6 for the Sega Mega Drive, following in the footsteps of the officially released Mega Man: The Wily Wars. It aims to carefully recreate the NES classics while giving them a fresh 16-bit coat of paint and a rearranged soundtrack. It also aims to improve on the foundation of Wily Wars by enhancing both the presentation and gameplay. Episode Red is the first release of the project, containing the full remake of Mega Man 4. Alongside the original game’s content, a slew of new features are added to spice up the experience for returning players”.
