Megaman: An Uncertain Future (Completed)
« on: July 18, 2013, 10:42:47 PM »
Well, sometimes when you scour the net looking for things, you run into weirdness like this little game which was published back in March. It probably went under your radar unless you're Brazilian, but it is in all honesty a completed game and I'm not quite sure how it exists.

In Megaman: An Uncertain Future, you play as Blues with the added ability of a jetpack. Though the stages are very basic, they do offer some semblence of challenge, despite the fact that you're fighting horrible mock-ups with pattenrs that actually felt like time was put into them. The bottom line about this game, is that time was put into it. It's got a working save system, collectable letters, finishable stages and functioning Robot master powers. It also doesn't feature a charge shot, but a weird triple shot. I won't lie, there are some interesting ideas in this incredibly weird title. But I'll let you see them for yourselves.

Not the best Megaman fangame by any means, but it's done and works - so there's not much else to say that I can't say with a youtube video. Yours truly, is playing the game of course:





You can download or play the game through Yoyo games, if for nothing more than sheer curiosity. Again, I'm surprised that this not only exists, but that it's actually finished.

If I find any more rarities, I'll put them up.

Kinda hard to judge from the videos... I'm guessing the framerate is fine in-game, for example?

Actually, looking at this I'm pretty sure this is a bizarre reskin/hack of Hard Hat 4, which had a similar 'hover' mechanic and the triple shot was the default 'special' shot. I wouldn't call HH4 particularly good either (but definitely playable despite a few very, very evil jumps).

It's been long enough since I last played it that I'm not a hundred percent sure, but at least ninety percent sure given that the selected stages go to the exact same environments I remember them being located on the screen (up left being aquatic, etc).

Interesting. I wasn't aware of a Hard Hat 4.

Yeah, checking some videos it does seem like this game is a hack/rip of Hard Hat 4 with maybe one or two changes. Compare the first stage of the second video (the underwater one) to this one:

Alright. That explains it. Seems I'll have to download Hard Hat 4, just so I can play the "real" thing.
