Long time no see people.

Just a little something I've been tinkering with. After the release of Megaman 9, some people have been murmuring wishes about a 16-bit sequal to the X games. Figured I'd see if I could make a mockup that would be convincing. The palette is extracted directly from the SNES games (of course, the quality of the reference varied in quality, so don't take my word on that one.) I went fairly loose on the first one and followed the 8x8 grid a bit more on the second. I know it's not perfectly within the restrictions, as I'm sure someone will point out sooner or later.

Goal was to use the same premise as the SNES games but do it better. Put some references in to both new and old games. The contrast turned out pretty harsh, but I'll admit, I like it when it's scrolling in paralax. We'll see if I ajust that later.

Was wondering if I should try and fool anyone with this, but nah. Not that cruel I guess.

I love this one. The art follows the style of the first X3 games really well. Only nitpick I have is that the characters could stand out a bit more, but otherwise this is one of the best mockups I've seen here (it even seems like it would be a fun game).

 Megaman was always my favorite game series as a kid and to see someone bring it back even briefly puts a smile on my face. Excellent work :)

Losm (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 12/21/2012 19:10

Levels have absolutely nothing to do with how good you are at pixelling. It's more about activity.

vmarach21 (Level 4 Shichikyu) @ 11/10/2012 12:50

 Only beacause barely any ratings.

monotov (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 10/27/2012 15:55

What the hell are you still level 1?

PeterH (Level 1 Depressed) @ 5/24/2011 07:24

The game and the pixel art is fantastic !!

Sr.Lap (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/17/2011 10:13

 This game is fantastic.

Rafa (Level 1 Rookie) @ 10/24/2010 02:50

Make this game....




carrion (Level 7 Underboss) @ 9/15/2010 11:15

 Pure awesomness! More pieces like this please

Pixelbear (Level 2 Corporal) @ 8/5/2010 09:15

Awesome.  I wish I could do remakes like this.  This is some pretty professional looking stuff.  You should send this to Capcom and maybe they'll get off their butts and make a new MMX for Virtual Console. :)

avo (Level 8 Cannibal) @ 7/25/2010 08:38

wanna play it!! 

RPG_Boy (Level 5 Captain) @ 5/9/2010 17:34

 one of the most epic mockups.

kokocipher (Level 1 Rookie) @ 4/9/2010 15:56

I just got a boner looking at this, no joke xD

momovampire (Level 1 Rookie) @ 3/16/2010 01:38

Respect for the Realism. This is so much like what Capcom would have done it if they ever made an MMX WiiWare.


Dino502Run (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 2/18/2010 15:51

This is SO freaking awesome

Antifarea (Level 4 Ensign) @ 7/25/2009 11:08

This is amazing. :D

Solitaire (Level 1 Depressed) @ 6/14/2009 10:27

 ah man, how did i miss this

great as always, snake! backgrounds are especially delicious <3

dusanvf (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/12/2009 08:30

I love the Backgrounds, but the characters no so much, Mega Man looks skinny. Good work though!

dpixel (Level 9 Vice President) @ 6/11/2009 22:37

That background is amazing, it just makes everything stand out perfectly.  And OMG those clouds!

Noveroth (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/11/2009 22:26

I don't like how X looks...

But other than that... Holy shit this is amazing.

Levi (Level 1 Thug) @ 6/11/2009 17:24

Dude... I WAS JUST telling my friend today that they should do a MM9 of the X series... Bring it back in the same vein as MMX1.

newDAN (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/10/2009 10:26

Very, very good job!

Badassbill (Level 11 Psychopath) @ 6/10/2009 06:06

For me, the top background is better than the rest of the graphics combined.

Very nice.

[Ryan_6666] (Level 3 Stalker) @ 6/9/2009 19:05

amazing work, only thing that would make it better would be moving the bg behind zero so he's in front of one of the panels as hes a bit hard to read against the flowers atm

mmx was the first console game i ever played and i still wish i hadn't let my parents sell it :(   absoloutley love the background in the first scene

Adarias (Level 11 Bonsai) @ 6/9/2009 13:19


A little bit of trouble with characters separating from the background but how bad can I nitpick one of the best peices I've seen from anyone?  Not much!

Stratto (Level 5 Killer Klown) @ 6/9/2009 13:09

Backgrounds are amazing!

Shawn (Level 9 Federal Agent) @ 6/9/2009 11:48

omg. this is perfect ;_;

crab2selout.png (Level 4 Deputy) @ 6/9/2009 11:15

Very nice. The style was nailed and I like the little subtle updates and details you gave MM and Z.  This feels like the sequel to MMX3 from an alternate timeline where cone feet were never invented. 6stars, but I wouldn't mind seeing the contrast on the background stuff in the Z screen brought down a tad.

tripnfelt (Level 5 Rokkyu) @ 6/9/2009 10:23

This is very impressive.

I like the background of the top screen most.

green_bald (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/9/2009 08:43

this is freaking awesome.

Dirteater (Level 1 Private) @ 6/9/2009 06:42

I may have dribbled a bit whilst staring at all the little details and things going on in this :P Such amazing work ^-^

Mathias (Level 6 Garbage) @ 6/9/2009 06:39


monotov (Level 6 Serial Killer) @ 6/9/2009 06:37

Backgroud is very well made.

zeroex (Level 3 Enforcer) @ 6/9/2009 06:31

Fantastic, man! I just think that the sprites could be a little bit better (but they're really nice), except for this, the scenery, enemies, even the lifebar... perfect!

This goes to my favorites without a doubt

oh, sorry for my bad english :P

Nika (Level 2 Quiet One) @ 6/9/2009 06:20

Wow, fantastic.

Darth Mandarb (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/9/2009 06:01

Very nicely done!  I can hear the SNES music in my head!

Reo (Level 11 Sphinx) @ 6/9/2009 05:52

You're back!!

And you're awesome as usual!!

politopo (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/9/2009 05:50

I want to play it...

oh nostalgia...

user (Level 1 Rookie) @ 6/9/2009 05:30

Oo, man you are a bad person, I so addicted to this game, and he ta so perfect, more perfect so I started to search it on net for low-lo
very, very good

Squirrelsquid (Level 4 Rubbish) @ 6/9/2009 05:11

Well, this has to be some of the sweetest MM mockups ever. Funny with the neo arcadia sign. ( seeing as it is just being built )

chess (Level 8 Shodan) @ 6/9/2009 04:09

8 points... 

RollerKingdom (Level 7 Mass Murderer) @ 6/9/2009 03:34

This is very well done, loving the details!!

Damian (Level 10 Operative) @ 6/9/2009 02:14

 Yeah, this is something great! 
I love the background work, mainly on the first one, Thats not to say that the greenhouse thing isn't awesome.
I'm no fan of Zero though, the reds in the SNES colours there don't seem as vibrant as the blues.


Again this is amazing

Elk (Level 5 Assistant Manager) @ 6/9/2009 02:09

Looks cute Snakee :D

.Anubis. (Level 3 Hatchet Man) @ 6/9/2009 01:39





inb4 retards saying this is a rip. 

Mykola (Level 3 Corporate Drone) @ 6/9/2009 01:07

fantastic job, follows the original style so wel, extracting the palette definitely helped. also the harsh contrast isnt a shortcoming IMO, the megaman games were always known exactly for that

TomF (Level 2 Flatfoot) @ 6/9/2009 01:07

You just made my day, Snake. <3

Surprisingly, I quite enjoy the contrasty background. I don't remember Megaman games being as action heavy/cluttered as something like Contra or MetalSlug, so I don't think that background is much of a problem here.
