[Happy Birthday!] Mega Man 4


mega-man-4

Hello folks!

Today, January 15th we celebrate the release of the fourth chapter of one of the saga of Mega Man, one of the most longeve on Nintendo, along with Super Mario Bros. And Zelda. Mega Man 4 was released exactly today in 1992 and represent a fork in the history of the franchise. While it was well received back in the 90s, it was later named as the first game of the saga to suffer a bit a general lack of quality.

MegaMan recently landed on mobile (and with terrible review) so maybe this could be the right moment to remove the dust of the NES cartridge a start to play it again!

  2. I think I owned a copy of this game on the Game Boy. Was it the one with Toad Man, Pharaoh Man, Ring Man and Bright Man?

    I played the first 8 Mega Man games all in a row thanks to the Anniversary Collection. Mega Man 4 is underrated. It’s pretty good, and I liked the ability to charge the buster.

    Happy Birthday Mega Man 4!

        The Anniversary Collection was perfect for someone like me who had never played any Mega Man prior to it!

  4. I’ll never understand who though taking a series of hard-as-nails platforming requiring split second timing and controller precision and putting it on touchscreen devices was a good idea…

      Really don’t know. I haven’t tried the mobile port but I read horrible reviews about it…

      1. I did try it, and it was exactly what I expected – infuriating. Mega Man is hard enough as it is, but when you add in the less-than-precise response of a touchscreen, it’s just maddeningly unfair.

        I tried a couple of times Mega Man on NES Mini and it was madly hard. I thought it was me but now that you tell me that actually IS hard I fell less stupid. Anyway I will try to beat it. No matter how many times I will try…

      3. Oh god – Google “Nintendo hard” and the Mega Man games should be the poster children…
