The headline for this one says it all, really. Thanks to Rockman Corner reader Sylvie, you can finally download and play each one of those neat -- but definitely weird -- officially-licensed PC Rockman games. Better yet? They're virus and malware free.
We've got the download links below! (For the uninitiated on the subject, check out The Mechanical Maniacs' excellent write-up here.)
Here's what we got:
- Rockman X: Math Whirlwind: An 'edutainment' game starring you, as Rockman X! Note: a virtual driver (daemn tools or an equivient) is required to boot.
- Rockman IQ Whirlwind: Take on a series of puzzle games to improve your IQ. Or not!
- Rockman DASH: Great Adventure to Save the World: An educational 3D platformer (sort of) featuring a few familiar Mega Man Legends faces.
- Rockman 1~6 Collection: Don't be fooled by the package art. It's a collection of all six NES games.
- Rockman's Gold Empire: An original adventure set in the classic series. The cutscene .avi files were corrupted, unfortunately. And because the game won't boot without .avi files, Sylvie went ahead an injected the files from IQ Whirlwind.
- Rockman Strategy: One of, if not the best known title from the lot. Sylvie says that the OST doesn't play properly, if at all. The current running theory is the music is toggled 'off' by default because the opening cutscene BGM plays just fine. It's something you'll have to fiddle around with.
Big thanks to Sylvie for getting these oddities preserved on Archive. Again, Sylvie scanned and swept each one clean of nasty viruses and malware. You shouldn't run into a problem there.
