So I got this as a free download since I'm a Might No. 9 backer...not a bad little game. Reminds me of one of the lower-tier Mega Man games...easy to blast through, but still fun to play. I don't see the game itself lasting longer than an hour if you beat it with each character, but since it was free for anyone that's playing it, a nice bonus.
Yeah, it's a short little game - kind of reminds me of the miniature Mega Man game that you can unlock in Mega Man ZX Advent. I beat it as Beck, went back and played through a bit as Gunvolt. It's almost an entirely different game with a different character.
It's a cool freebie - which is the perfect price for something so short and sweet.
I wonder if this would have been something I would have paid $20 or so for, back in 1990 on the original Gameboy.
Ikachan at least had some charm to it. This was just an attempt at a lower-tier Mega Man game (about on par with 4, but 4 was more fleshed out). I still enjoyed it, but I probably wouldn't have paid for it.
I did enjoy the 80s translation that went with it though...the Inafking reference at the end made me smile.
Yeah, I wasn't big on it. I played through it as Beck in about 20 minutes and only dabbled with the other two characters. It's an acceptable freebie, but I would have been disappointed if I'd put any money into it.
After getting the bad ending in Azure Striker Gunvolt, I decided to take a break with this game. It probably took me about 45 minutes to an hour to play through with all three characters, but it was a nice, relaxing break from the action of the game I had just been playing.
It is certainly not worth purchasing on its own, but it's a nifty extra. I especially like how the bosses follow their Azure patterns but in a more subdued way.
This is definitely more of a companion game for ASV than Mighty No. 9 (or the angel girl game thing), so it is a good idea to play through that first for full enjoyment.
