Well I was rather pleased to get through the force beams, even though you
don't get anything for it, but that's really something I enjoy about the
Mega man games, the fact that there is! so much to do in the games even
though they are fairly streight forward action platformers.
I think part of the problem, is really lack of judgement. When your dealing
with a basic boppit style here and react setup, there's not really that much
you can add, sinse basically the only ways to make boppit harder are too
speed it up and give you less chances to fail.
Melee vs ranged weapons with different damage potential is one way to go,
but even then, it'd probably only work if each enemy also had an attack
range and it was possible for you to dodge their attacks, thus giving more
advantage to taking them on at a distance out of their range.
This is afterall why so many games like Castlevania or even Micky's castle
of ilusion on the Mega drive had a close range attack as your main weapon,
but then had a long range attack that was limited in amo.
Mega man took this even further, by giving you a small gun that only flies
streight and hits a comparatively narrow area, as compared to other weapons
with more or less damage potential and different archs of fire.
In fact on the subject of alternate weapons, this is weerdly enough
something I've not seen much of in audio, sinse most alternate weapons have
just tended to focus on the damage or wrate of fire rather than where the
weapon actually flies, ---- even though Gma tank commander proved pretty
conclusively that audio weapons with different coverage of area are quite
All the more reason to look forward to whatever the next thing with Genesis
Beware the grue!
