A modder has put "Doom and Mega Man into a blender" to "spew out a fun new way to blast your buddies online." Mega Man: 8-Bit Deathmatch seeks to recreate the original game's levels and weapons in a 3D environment.
The mod's levels employ 8-bit textures and sprites. "Mega Man will jump high and take damage recoil," says the creator, CutmanMike. "Weapons will behave exactly as they did back then, only from a 3D perspective. The plan is to eventually have all the levels and weapons from Mega Man 1-6 (and maybe 9). Obviously some weapons will have minor changes because there are a lot of clones throughout the series."
