Mega Man Zero 4 (GBA)
Mega Man Zero 4 (AKA Rockman Zero 4 – ロックマン ゼロ4 Rokkuman Zero Fō in Japan) is a 2D run and gun platform video game developed and published by Capcom for the GBA handheld console in 2005. It is the fourth and final installment of the Mega Man Zero series. The game is set several months after Mega Man Zero 3 and has many major changes, one is the addition of the Easy Mode.
Easy Mode makes Mega Man Zero 4 much easier and enables the usage of the Cyber Elf without restrictions, it also gives the player a larger health boost. Although very useful for newbies of the series, Easy Mode restricts the player from changing the weather and earning EX Skills.
Another addition is the new Weather System which allows players to choose what weather condition will be effective during gameplay. Properly setting the weather system is a strategy anyone should know as this will become essential on your gameplay.
A new weapon called the Z-knuckle has been added to Zero’s arsenal. This weapon enables the player to hang from pipes, destroy obstacles and steal an enemy’s weapon. Unlike in the previews games where the player should first collect CyberElves before it can be used, this game has an unlocked CyberElf right from the beginning. Having this unlocked is very helpful since it helps upgrading your character much easier.
The graphics, while not the best, are still enjoyable to look at considering it’s a handheld side-scrolling video game. The sound of Mega Man Zero 4 is also quite fun to hear since it really makes you feel the intensity of the gameplay. The default difficulty available for the players to select upon starting the game is Easy and Normal mode.
Finishing Mega Man Zero 4 will unlock an additional hard mode which provides more challenge to the gameplay. Another difficulty called Ultimate Mode can also be unlock and provides the most challenging gameplay among the ones mentioned above.
The main game consists of eight action packed stages which consists of mini-boss fights and a main boss battle after finishing a certain level. Besides the main story missions, there are also seven bonus mini-games which players can unlock further playing. The mini-games include Lumberjack, Lava Surf, Energy Lab, Elf Chase, Plant Panic, Slam Harvest and Busy Basket.
Mega Man Zero 4 game has been ported to Game Boy Advance (this version) and Nintendo Virtual Console.
