Hey, Have Some Mega Man X Corrupted Gameplay


Admittedly, I haven't featured Mega Man X Corrupted here as much as I should have. But today I'm amending that. For your consideration, here's the latest look at the highly anticipated fan-game by JKB Games. We're taking a look at the freshly developed Crystal Raffler stage, complete with music and a number of perils.

For the uninitiated, Corrupted is a flash-based game that has been in development since 2007. Though largely inspired the SNES X titles, the game plays more like a Metroidvania. Previous videos (available to watch any time on JKB's YouTube), show us just how dynamic the world can be. It's far more freeform than anything seen in, say, Mega Man ZX.

If you'd like to learn more about the game, hit up JKB's official Facebook.

  1. Wow, I haven't see any Megaman X remakes but this one looks good.

  2. I hate the term Metroidvania for interconnected level designs. That's like calling platformers Marionics, its just very dumb.

    Anyway I love MMXC from what I've seen and especially heard of the game.

    1. At one point JKB rewrote the engine, which cost him a lot of time in itself.

  5. I've been fairly skeptical of this game so far, but it really seems to be shaping up! I was seriously impressed with how JKB seemed to capture the spirit of the SNES X games in all aspects including the gameplay, background graphics, and boss design.

  6. The stage seems like a mess and easy to get loss, wich comes with the Metroidvania territory I guess but I don't think it mixes so well with the style of a MMX game.

    Everythung else looks good tho, so I would give it a try.

    1. wow, you must get lost easily in games. also that's the point in maps, i'm happy it is not like metroid or castlevania and more like a sandbox game like dead rising or something. it makes it more fun.

    2. It's not MMX style, turning it into Metroid or Castlevania doesn't feel right for me at all.

      if he wanted a longer game, he should make longer stages or include more of them, instead of turning it into a maze IMHO.

  8. Are those... X-Buster mods? Oh, that's clever. You can adopt the full power of the mavericks, or use them to modify the X Buster... that's a really cool mechanic. And you said this was a Flash Game? Man, this guy is wasted on Flash Games... imagine what they could do tapping into the power of some more powerful programming languages/software.

  9. I'm really surprised, and quite happy, to see this is still alive and kickin'. This is definitely one of the best Mega Man fan games I've seen in a while and I'm super anxious to play it. Even if it is made in Flash.

    Yes, this is made in Flash. Or at least, it was for a long while, if it isn't now. And it looks as amazing as those Megaman Vs. games from years back.

  10. Wow, I guess all the planets of the solar system get aligned just to make this carl sagan`s event happen: protodude finally made mention of this game. A kick4ss 16-bit-like flash based game and not another 8-bit Megaman game .

  11. For those of you guys saying it's a Flash game, it's not, at least it's not anymore. I believe JKB actually rewrote the original Flash version of the game from scratch onto a new programming language.
