Developer: Vast Fame
Zook Hero Z attempts to charm you with its cute world, fun to discover mechanics and professional looks. Don’t be fooled though, a lot of what you find consists of recycled enemy behavior, dash that outright refuses to work in certain situations and overall unpolished gameplay.
The game is a bootleg and tries to cram a Mega Man X experience on the Gameboy Color, partly succeeding with it. The ideas are good, but the execution is abysmal in most cases. The ending really isn’t worth the time and effort. There are still things to like about the game on a personal level at least, so I can’t kick the game too much. Even with its flaws, it’s almost worth checking. With all the negative feedback out of the way, the game does have a charm that can’t be matched for a handheld ‘Mega Man’ game.
