Mighty No 9

Mighty No. 9 is a Japanese 2D Side-scrolling Action game that takes the best elements from 8 and 16-bit classics that you know and love and transforms them with modern tech, fresh mechanics, and fan input into something fresh and amazing! You play as Beck, the 9th in a line of powerful robots, and the only one not infected by a mysterious computer virus that has caused mechanized creatures the world over to go berserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way through twelve stages using weapons and abilities stolen from your enemies to take down your fellow Mighty Number robots and confront the final evil that threatens the planet! Every aspect of Mighty No. 9’s development—art, level design, music, programming, etc.—is being handled by veteran Japanese game creators with extensive experience in the genre, all the way up to and including the project’s leader, Keiji Inafune himself! Toggle between regular and 8-bit music: this game is a veritable who’s who of veteran game composers – Manami Matsumae, Takeshi Tateishi, Ippo Yamada, so we thought, why not tap into that retro vibe? As such, Mighty No. 9 features an optional chiptune version of the entire game soundtrack which you can toggle on and off.

At it’s core, it does have many similarities to Mega Man, but when playing the game, it feels much more like Doom 2016. If you play it simply to pass levels, it might be dull. The game is meant to be played at a frantic pace where you constantly push the timer. And I felt it did very well at this. The way the power-ups and weapons work, it allows players to adopt a weapon and playstyle they like. For example, playing well and using the dash mechanic is intended allows me to switch off of “buster” mode and use an alternative weapon for the entire level should I choose to do so. The way the life works also complements the game well as you can gain an “energy tank” of sorts by doing good combos, meaning that playing slick is more important than not getting hit.

I will admit that there is a lot of polish missing. There are limitations that I don’t understand why they were put in the game. Weapons are not very well balanced (some are next to useless where I use others more than I use the basic weapon). The difficulty fluctuates a lot more than it should. Some levels, or parts of levels are a breeze, where others require very precise movements. The last boss is much harder than the rest of the game and the game doesn’t provide tools to accomodate players not ready for the steep slope. In a lot of ways, they would have been better off not trying to make this game like Mega Man and do what fits the game best. As opposed to Mega Man history, the music in the game is entirely forgettable. Megaman was a game universally accepted in it’s time and the series still appeals to a pretty broad group.
