A while back, I read somewhere about a flash-based PC game called Rokko Chan
which was similar in style to the Mega Man games. Being a Mega Man Classic fanatic (and the fact that MegaPhilX's Mega Man Unlimited
isn't completed yet), I gave it a shot and was instantly amazed with this game. The game not only plays like a classic Mega Man game, but also looks and sounds like it could be the long lost...um...sister of the series. Six robot masters and a few fortress stages may not sound like much, but the game is tough, especially the final boss, which took me close to twenty lives before I finally had it down.

. I'd highly recommend using a gamepad and the program Joy2Key, as I've never been good at Mega Man on a keyboard. Warning though, this game is hard, despite the names of the robot masters (seriously, Rolling Man?).
