Why don't people like Elec Mans stage?

Post by Fluff Man » Thu Jul 04, 2019 5:45 pm

I've never played it but i recreated all the levels from mm1 in mmm and it seems like the best one, yet people seem to dislike it.

(this used to be asking how to get an avatar, didn't realize i put it in megaman discussion, i also didn't know how to move or delete it so i just changed it.)

I'll just copy from the BBcode FAQ.

Within your User Control Panel, under “Profile” you can add an avatar by using one of the four following methods: Gravatar, Gallery, Remote or Upload. It is up to the board administrator to enable avatars and to choose the way in which avatars can be made available. If you are unable to use avatars, contact a board administrator.

This discussion has nothing to do with Mega Man, it belongs in General Chat.
Due to my current inability to play MMM in a satisfactory manner on either of my devices, I will be on hiatus from activity for an indefinite period of time.

The difficulty curve of the stage is terrible, and paired with the already atrocious physics of 1 make it really un-enjoyable.

Okay yes alright okay

It would be ok if the watcher had accurate timing, and the ladder climbing is fast.

@MM2 hate group: Say what you will about crash man, at east the ladder climbign doesn;'t apply for the entire stage

*Enemy placements for Spines are pretty bad.
*Forgot Super Arm? Need to do the level again to get the required Magnet Beam (outside clipping glitches).
*Elecman does way too much damage.
*Elecman's AI has a stunlock exploit.

The level got a bad reputation due to the way the Magnet Beam was handled, and because of the negativity, people seem to just love to pile onto it with even more flaws. Though, despite its problems, its still probably the third best Robot Master stage in MM1.

What's even better is going through all 6 robot masters, not getting the Magnet Beam, and then attempting to clear Dr. Wily's castle. ;)

*Enemy placements for Spines are pretty bad. Yeah, I agree, but this can be solved if you get Cutmans weapon first (Elecmans weakness), its kinda cool when robot master weaknesses are useful in the stage as well.

*Forgot Super Arm? Need to do the level again to get the required Magnet Beam (outside clipping glitches). This would be an issue in any stage that has the magnet beam, its unfortunate that its in Elec Mans stage.

*Elecman does way too much damage. This is an issue with Elecman, not the stage. Although a stage does need a fun, fair, and satisfying end, i'm mostly just talking about the stage.

*Elecman's AI has a stunlock exploit. again this is an issue with Elecman, not the stage.


I get what you mean, but my main problems with it are that it just copies some earlier rooms sometimes without changing anything.

Its not just a problem from Mega Man 1. Other early NES games, like Legend of Zelda regularly copy-paste the same set of basic room layouts for dungeons over and over again with the only difference being enemy groups, treasure, and maybe statues occasionally shooting fireballs. Super Mario Bros. goes one step further and regularly recycles whole entire levels with only minor enemy layout and hazard revisions. Mega Man's 1's use of screen duplication is pretty tame compared to them.
Due to my current inability to play MMM in a satisfactory manner on either of my devices, I will be on hiatus from activity for an indefinite period of time.
