Megaman VIDEO GAME NEWS: Vintage Hero releases on Xbox Live Indie Games

It’s the year 198X. You know what to do.

When Earth comes under attack by alien invaders, the peaceful denizens expect their old hero, Giga Man to once again save them. When it’s clear he’s too wrapped up in the tempting night life of the robot glitterati, it’s time for a new hero to arrive. Help Floyd, an unassuming custodian at the county jail, his mentor Mac and his lifelong friend Kricket defeat the evil General and his invading alien army!

After years in development, Frog the Doors Games has finally finished its love letter not just to the NES Mega Man games, but to adventure, platforming, and all things revered about classic 2-D gaming.

  • Over 25 unique enemies and seven punishing boss battles
  • Six challenging stages to play through in easy, normal and hard modes
  • Earn and use special weapons and items to defeat enemies and pass obstacles
  • Gain experience points to level up stats like defense or attack, and grow stronger

Out of the lethargy of legends begins the dawn of new heroes.

“I was a bit shocked and even a little nostalgic to realize I had created the project on the XNA creator’s website back in March of 2011. Working odd hours here and there, eventually I finished, and hopefully made something fun and exciting that followers of Mega Man can be satisfied with, fans of RPGs can appreciate, and lovers of classic platforming will find challenging.”
