17th : The Quickening

Make a Good Mega Man Level (Remastered)

You're most likely gonna need these...
"Personally, I love killing. And that's why I like levels like the one next to me. Full of death and destruction. The bliss of obliteration."
―Skull Man, next to the teleporter, Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered.

The Quickening is the 17th place entry in Make a Good Mega Man Level. It's an incredibly difficult Quick Laser climb.


At the start of the level, there are seven lives. The first dangerous screen of the level should show you what the level is all about: Jumping up while avoiding Quick Lasers. The second screen has a Magnet Machine that will help you avoid them. In the third screen, a Fan Fiend will help you try to outrun the Quick Lasers. After that is a checkpoint with more lives. In order to get through the fourth screen, you must quickly shoot a Spine and speed past the Quick Lasers. After that, you have to jump up Plantman Platforms with Quick Lasers. Then you reach a room with a Pelicanu and the Energy Element.

In the original game, a bug with Quick Lasers makes the Black Hole Bomb absorb them, making it a handy tool to get through the level. However, this bug is fixed in Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered, increasing the difficulty (though at the same time, Mega Man now has infinite lives and the Skull Amulet to absorb one Quick Laser.)

Skip Status[edit]

In Make a Good Mega Man Level Remastered only, this stage is skippable, due to both its extreme level of difficulty and the Black Hole Bomb glitch being fixed.

Y'know, it's probably a good thing there's no music here. A fifteen second loop would get real annoying after the first ten minutes. That was INCREDIBLY satisfying to actually complete, by the way.

Oh... all right then, another Quick Man level-type. I... can't say I'm impressed with this one. Wasn't a fan of Quick Man's level, nor was I a fan of Rainbow Man's level, and I can't say I'm a huge fan of this one either. That being said, its short, and the concept behind this is unique for a Quick Man level, but... its still a Quick Man level.

That letter between X and Z. For a level based solely around quick lasers, this is surprisingly fair and well made (although stupidly hard). There's safe zones in every screen at the start and end so you can watch the pattern, then scroll it off screen and restart the pattern so you can try it, and there are no sections where something shows up that you didn't notice. For anybody who's not ready for the bad times upcoming, you should try Black Hole Bomb on the lasers. Gets a 5 for music despite not having music because silence really helps, although I am disappointed you did not use Quick Man's theme.
