So, I tried Mega Man 2 again. And was it any better? Well, look at the screenshot below.

That’s me, facing the boss at the end of the demo stage. I nearly beat him, too.

So, yes, it was a lot better than I’d given it credit for. So much better that it was almost playable. Actually, no. It was still quite a long way from playable, but it was much better than before.

Chances of me buying the full game? Zero. Absolute zero. A terribly ill-conceived port all round, but it does look like the poor buggers given the thankless task of porting it did the best they possibly could.
