The game uses the Zandronum engine, which is no more than a port to the 'online' game of the original Doom engine. Due to this little detail, most players will recognize certain parts of the classic ID Software game when they start to play Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch.
Leaving the game engine aside, Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch includes dozens of different 'skins' that you can use as characters, more than fifty different weapons to annihilate your enemies, a handful of maps inspired by the stages of the original games and a multi-player mode that supports up to 32 players at a time.
As if this weren't enough, in addition to the promised 'online' mode, Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch also includes a single player campaign that will take you through lots of different stages and provide you with lots of entertainment when you don't have enough friends to play with on the Internet, although this campaign is a little watered down.
Mega Man 8-bit Deathmatch is a very entertaining first person action game. Though it will especially please Mega Man fans, it is also high-quality enough to please anyone who's looking for a good 'online shooter.'
