    If your itching to get your hands on Megaman 9, then this should hold you over for a little.

    Japanese fanboys have recreated SNES Rockman 7 completely in 8-bit form. The graphics, music, and engine are all almost perfect rendition of the NES Rockman games. This a freeware PC game for Windows. Remember this game is in Japanese, but there is only a tiny bit of dialog anyway. It shouldn't bother anyone.

    Megaman/Rockman is one of my favorite series (Obviously only the platform genre ones), its awesome to see this game in old school style. Honestly, I like this one a bit better than the original SNES. The 8-Bit graphics just have some kind of charm to them.

    Remember guys, Megaman 9 is to be released this month. Show your support! [​IMG]

    Mega Man is meant to be 8 bit.

    I think this is actually somewhat old, but it's great.
    Was it only recently completed or something?
    I tried it recently, so much better than the SNES version, jumping doesn't feel awkward, over-powered enemy attacks were weakened, and a faithful recreation.

    The store is gone, so instead of finding a Super Bolt in Springman's stage, you find the energy balancer.

    Hmm, seems the larger screen size option runs slow on my computer. And I have a 9800GTX... [​IMG]

    My keyboard doesn't like multiple keys being pressed either.

    Holy shit, this is pretty neat.

    It even has the Shade Man secret theme/stage music!

    Not sure if this is your problem, but pressing any of the function Keys will change the game speed. Press F1 to change it to normal.

    I'd love to see Megaman 8 gone retro style. Now thats a hard one.

    The SNES one was my downright favorite. I hope they kept some of the enhanced styles.
    Like say the better looking rush jetpack and not the Megaman 6 jetpack :/

    Still cool stuff.
    Hope someone tries for a Megaman 8 retro styled

    Megaman 8 would be hard to do for one reason and one reason only.

    Megaman swims. D:

    But no, really, they can even do cutscenes in the NES format too (still images, etc), so that'll be fun. Some of the minibosses are going to be difficult to implement I'm sure...And there's no Rush Coil in that game (I think), and and and...

    I still want it, though. XD

    Along with Knytt Stories and Cave Story, this needs to get ported to the DS.

    I'd love a wii port myself :3
    More preferably an NES port....

    Megaman 8 demake would be great. Though I'd hope they keep it feeling like the next installment and not a step down from the last.

    Say for instance in this one you don't collect bolts and Bass is pretty much no where to be seen until the fight with him.

    Also, no rush search.
    Wich means I have no idea where to get the Rocket Punch.
    Anyone know if its even still in the game?
    I can't seem to find it.

    I did find the energy redistributer in the spot where Auto's head bolt was.

    Oh and one more thing. If anyone even thinks of de-making MM8 be it the Saturn version. The PSX one was the inferior version :/
    Though I personally liked the 2D CD based games of yesteryear.

    Still, wheres the darn Rocket Punch, am I missing something obvious here?

    Edit:
    Never mind, found it.
    It's in the same spot it was before. Just the method of getting it is differnt.
    For anyone missing it like I was here's the info:
    Warning: Spoilers inside!

    Great news. Megaman 8 remake is on the way too people! [​IMG]

    Most (if not, all) of the soundtrack has already had an 8-bit remix.
    More information and the soundtrack at the official site.

    Go go CapmCo! xD

    Totally awsome, can't wait.

    Though personally I'd love to see Sega Saturn/PSX Cd audio full animated version of megaman 7 and down, but thats just me. Though would be way too much work to be worth it.

    Now all they gotta do is Megaman and Forte.

    Though the Megaman X series would be interesting in NES style. Seeing as it was origonaly on the SNES. Well, also the GBC version but that was an odd mix of sorts.

    Can't wait to try MM8 retro style :3
    Thanks for the info.
