- Only the uncharged X-Buster may be used to attack.
- Only the final form of Sigma may be attacked by fully charged shots from the X-Buster.
- No heart tanks.
- No energy tanks.
- No collecting any armor, except for the boots because the cannot be avoided.
- Chill Penguin's stage must be played last, so that you cannot acquire boots early.
- Dashing is allowed after boots are obtained.
Ok... so those are the over the top rules. I was doing fine, every boss was falling one after another... until I encountered the easiest boss in the game:
This guy is a beast without Chill Penguin's weapon. The problem is his nearly undodgeable punch that does more than 1/3 your HP in damage.
If you stay in the ground, he just punches you and you can't outrun him. If you try to jump above him, you will fail; it's possible to jump over him, but not if you're near the edge of the stage (Because he stops and you need his speed to jump above). You also have to jump before he starts his attack in order to actually dodge it, so it becomes a guessing game.
Any tips to actually defeat this guy while obeying the above rules?
Watch the run
I'm rerunning through the game, this time recording my input (not actual videos). To be able to watch my run, you will need to download a few things.
Megaman X challenge.zip (attached at the bottom of this post) includes all the input files so far, so you don't have to download the individual ones.
The rest of the files are only in the case you downloaded an earlier version of the previous file, which doesn't include the updated parts of the run. Put those into the Movies folder included in the previous file.
To view the run:
2-File > Load Game...
3-Select Mega Man X.smc and hit enter
4-File > Movie Play...
5-Click "Browse...", it's the button on the upper right.
6-Open one of the .smv files corresponding to the part of the run you want to see (They should be in the Movies folder).
7-Click Ok and watch.
8-To proceed to next part, go back to step 4.
To be continued...
