Mega Man 2.5D is a fan game by and for fans, this game developed by Peter Sjöstrand and a team of fans for 8 years finally out and available for download.
What started as an animated proof of concept, finally developed into a full-fledged game. The team released a beta in 2013 and released several updates, yesterday the full version of the game was released and available for free download.
Mega Man 2.5D game runs on most of PCs that offer 3 different difficulty settings and multiplayer “VS” mode that includes eight battlegrounds.The game has hybrid graphical style, it’s unique and has co-op mode for two players.
There are mainly two things that set Mega Man 2.5D apart from most other Mega Man games. The first is the co-op mode, where two players team up to take on Dr. Wily. The other is the use of camera perspective changes which is featured a lot in the single-player mode of the game.
With over 130 published titles worldwide, Mega Man is probably one of the most popular character in video game history. However, anyone who believes that the blue robotic man has been neglected in the last few years now has a real alternative to the original game of Capcom.
How Capcom reacts to the fan project remains to be seen, the game is currently available for download at developer’s website: Petersjostrand.com/index.php/media1
