ExecutiveMan, a JavaScript MegaMan clone

About ExecutiveMan

ExecutiveMan is a clone of my favorite NES game, MegaMan, written in JavaScript. The ExecutiveMan engine aims to have 100% complete feature coverage of the original MegaMan games. The only thing that is missing at this point (outside of only having 14 types of enemies, and only one type of additional weapon) is ladders, for one very simple reason: Ladders require extra up and down buttons which make the game very clumsy to play with touch controls.

Playable here.

Controls

  • left, right arrows - move left or right

  • 'c' key - shoot

Features

  • nearly 100% correct NES MegaMan gameplay

  • relatively easy to use touch controls

  • chrome, firefox, and internet explorer (including xbox) joystick support

  • save game support

  • easy to edit Tiled levels
