Mega Man 11…But Not Quite

by Steve Napierski to Games

Rokko Chan PosingAre you patiently waiting for the release of Mega Man 11? Odds are you might want to get used to waiting. But if you want something to hold you over in the interim, I highly recommend Rokko Chan.

Now I don’t want you to think that Rokko Chan is just another Mega Man clone. No, there’s tons of differences between the two games. You see, instead of Mega Man, like in the Mega Man games, you have Rokko Chan. And instead of Dr. Light you have Dr. Sane. And instead of Dr. Wily you have Dr. Mad. And…Well, that’s about where the differences end. But you know what? That’s not necessarily a bad thing.

You see, Rokko Chan is more of an homage to the Mega Man series than a clone. It knows what it’s doing and it’s not trying to hide it either. This is really one creators love letter to the Mega Man franchise.

Still, Rokko Chan‘s strongest quality is that it is available to play right now, online and for free. So if you’ve got the time to kill, I definitely recommend checking it out.

    Maybe I suck at this, but I think the button layout sucks big time. /ragequit

      There’s a key config in the options menu – I wasn’t a big fan of the default layout either.

      May it help you more than it helped me, cause I still sucked :p

        Considering that it’s an homage to classic Mega Man, I assume it is intentionally hard.

    I think it pulls off the style and sprites pretty fucking perfectly. Great artwork.

    I just finished the game. It’s kinda hard but not as much as some of the real mega man games.

    If you’re looking for a good megaman clone, with female characters (or just in general), I recommend Rosenkreuzstilette. It’s pretty difficult too.

    I’m defintely going to have to check this out though.
