When you’ve played the Mega Man series, there is a high probability that you’ve also played with his companion, Zero, as well.
Zero is a great character and I will choose him over Mega Man because he just looks cooler than him.
If you thought the Zero doesn’t have a game of his own, then you’re gravely mistaken. Today, I am going to talk about the Mega Man Zero Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance.
This is the first Mega Man game where Zero is the main character. When I first heard about this game, I was very excited to try it.
The story of the Mega Man Zero Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance begins 100 years after the events of the Mega Man X games.
Zero was awakened by the scientist, Miel. She pleaded Zero to help her defeat the Reploids as some of the Reploids were assigned to kill her.
Miel also explained that the government is now being run by Maverick Reploids; calling themselves as the “Neo Arcadia”.
Zero has shady memories of his past so he accepted the offer and helped Miel and the other scientists. They are instantly amazed by Zero’s combat prowess.
After some time, Miel explained what happened during Zero’s 100-year sleep. According to Miel, the humans and the Reploids were peacefully co-existing until there was a shortage of power supply.
Apparently, the only way to remedy the situation is to kill as many Reploids as possible. Of course, some Reploids do not want to be taken out and so, the Reploids of the Neo Arcadia were born.
Although there are bad Reploids, there are also good Reploids who made a faction to stop the bad ones.
Miel and the good reploids created the resistance and they want Zero to help them take the government back.
The Mega Man Zero Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance borrows some of the gameplay elements from the Mega Man series.
Zero has the ability to fire a charged shot by holding down the attack button for 2 seconds. This charged shot does more damage and it can be really useful in boss battles.
Zero also makes use of his trusty Z-saber, one of the aspects that I love about him. His Z-saber does tremendous damage; the only downside is that you have to be in melee range to deal damage.
To aid Zero, he also has the Z-buster equipped. As previously mentioned, you can create a charged Z-buster shot by holding the attack button for 2 seconds and releasing it.
Zero can also use different weapons with elemental attributes. These weapons can be acquired by defeating the different bosses in the game.
The game also follows the usual gameplay elements where a boss has a weakness for some weapons and some bosses have resistances to some.
The Mega Man Zero Game for the Nintendo Gameboy Advance is an amazing game and if you really love Zero from the Mega Man series, I encourage you to play this game.
