Wily Tower is the 74th place level in Make a Good Mega Man Level 2. Besides small sections in between, this level is mostly bosses. Hilariously, the creator of the level chose Volt Man, Komuso Man, and Quint, the three most commonly used bosses in the development kit.

Strategy[edit]

In the first room, the player can either choose to go down a room and deal with a few Moliers or take out a Ben K and a Pakkato 24 to reach the boss door below immediately. The boss corridor is a fake lead-up, however, as there is a short spike drop awaiting the player that can be trivialized with Sakugarne. The first boss of this stage, Volt Man, has his weakness in the Slash Claw. It defeats him in merely five hits, dealing a whopping six damage per strike and even piercing his shield. For more daring players, he does have the same weakness in the Super Arrow, but you can hardly hit through his shield with it.

A few rooms further, the player is presented a 1-Up to refill their Life Energy in preparation for the next boss. Be careful grabbing it, however, as the lava immediately behind it is an instant death. Behind the second door lies a Komuso Man fight, also taken straight out of the development kit. Komuso Man's Weakness is the Grab Buster, which can also conveniently heal the player while fighting him. If his clones are hit with a shot though, it's rendered ineffective, so it's advised to only shoot him while he is preparing an attack.

The final section heavily revolves around ladders used in conjunction with the platforms found in Plant Man's Stage. These can easily be opened by any weapon to open your path upward, to the final boss of the level. After one tricky spike jump, it is time to fight Quint. Quint, quite ironically, has his biggest weakness in Sakugarne, dealing four damage per hit. Due to the nature of the invincibility frames of bosses in this stage, it is advised to always make a big hop on him when using this strategy. If you opt to go for a safer way, however, Quint also takes two damage from Triple Blade, Wheel Cutter and Super Arrow and can thus be fought on long range as well. Upon his defeat, he drops the stage's Energy Element.

I'm pretty sure there are about as many bosses in this level as there are enemies. Like all the screens in the level are completely featureless empty rooms. And then the occasional unmodified engine boss. ????????

You could have done a lot better with the graphics instead of just using black backgrounds. The actual level was only about 40 seconds long, minus the bosses.

I don't think I can give many points for a boss rush that's using just vanilla assets. The sections in between the bosses don't feel very planned or consistent, either, but more like filler areas to bridge the gaps between the bosses. This level also lacked testing, as one of the respawn points behave weirdly due to the boss door above it.

Oh wow. Such design. Much fair. No seriously, it sucks. Pathetic enemy placement, bad obstacle placement, etc. It was okay at best. Wily Tower stages like this are pretty cool, but this one just felt uninteresting. It was okay at best. Wily Tower stages like this are pretty cool, but this one just felt uninteresting. It was meh. Massive camera glitch? No sir.



Normally I like the idea of a stage like this, but this one just isn't that good. The level design is awful. Most of the level is either horrible enemy placement, long empty sections, or other fairly serious stage layout issues. Also, there's a pretty serious camera glitch here. Anyway, there's nothing else I can say here, it could've been much, much better.

Trivia[edit]

  • Upon using the self-destruct button in the room immediately after Volt Man, the game will erroneously respawn the player higher up in the same room, allowing them to skip the battle against Komuso Man entirely. This does not save any time for a speedrun on the level in and of itself, as self-destructing invalidates your run for precisely this reason, but a speedrun of the whole game could use this to save about 30 seconds in total.
