other former Capcom employees to create a spritual successor to his
his most popular franchise, Mega Man. He promises a classic
experience that is also packed with revolutionary new ideas. Here is the game description:
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 ovber to go beserk. Run, jump, blast, and transform your way
through six stages (or more, via stretch goals) you can can tackle in
any order you choose, 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!
