Rockbot 1.00: A Worthy Mega Man Clone For PSP, Windows, And Android
The Rockbot team is back with a much improved non-beta version of their Mega Man clone. Check out the PSP PC, and Android builds here!
The Rockbot homebrew game has been around for a while now, but it's our pleasure to announce that the very first stable release is finally here. This is an experience crafted for Mega Man fans by Mega Man fans, so it borrows many essential gameplay mechanics from the the classic Capcom franchise. That means you'll be shooting, running, jumping, and absorbing powers to your heart's content. As far as changes are concerned, this build mostly fixes bugs found in the previous beta. Check out the exhaustive list below!
