So I downloaded the whole collection...
I’m going to start by saying I am a huge megaman series. I have all of the megaman games the cartridge ones from 1-6 and the disk of 8 and also 9 and 10. So when I found out megaman is mobile I got super excited! But then I played all of them in the mobile collection to find they are pretty crappy ports... they’re way slow, even the music has been slowed, and on the “normal” mode you get infinite lives, like what is that??? I mean I guess it’s coo for beginners but I just don’t think that helps capture the feeling megaman gives, it just dosent make you as satisfied as if you completed the game normally like on the cartridges. I must say this port to mobile has been a real disappointment, but I strongly suggest checking out the actual series either playing a nes or on a pc
Not so great
Okay, there are a few things wrong with this. First, let me point out one of the more annoying things: the controls. The d-pad is alright, but hard to get used to. The jump and shoot buttons, however, are not so great. For one, the shoot button is above the jump button, making it harder to reach. I believe that it’s necessary to have both the buttons within reach of the thumb so that it’s easier to play.
This is just a personal gripe, but what’s the point of the high and turbo speed buttons? To me, it doesn’t really add anything to the gameplay and just makes it easier to die. Speaking of, when you die, it’s an instant game over. Why don’t they start you with 2 lives like normal? The gameplay aside from the controls is very laggy, but that’s about it. Other than that, it’s just Mega Man ported to IOS, but I felt, if they were going to port Mega Man, they could’ve done better than that.
Since Mega Man Legacy Collection 2 is coming out soon, I want to suggest that they don’t port it to IOS unless these stated problems are fixed.
No controller support
I don't understand why this game doesn't have controller support, especially considering version 1 came out less than a year ago. The D-pad on the iPad version is way too big, and the action buttons are too far spaced out to use efficiently. You can switch button configurations, but there are no other options beyond that. The game also uses no touch-optimized controls even when they would make sense (choosing a level, options menu, etc) further confounding why there is no controller support.
In addition, the game runs very sluggishly, skipping frames often and feeling very "floaty" on the so-called normal speed. At first I thought this was to give the game more of an authentic 80s console experience, but it was definitely never this bad.
In short, this is an incredibly lazy port of a great classic game. Kind of a shame, and I hope they update it to fix these problems (but I don't have my hopes up since this is Capcom we are talking about and the game is like $1, hardly on the top of their priority list).
