Mega Man Xtreme is a Game Boy Color game containing slightly scaled-down stages, bosses and music from Mega Man X and Mega Man X2. Just like what they did with the Game Boy Mega Man games...only with a few tweaks.

Hmmm...

Level Select

GameShark code 0101A8D3 or Game Genie code A87-93B-7FF will enable a level select menu. Simply, load a stage with the code on, and it will take you to the Level Select menu.

The top two numbers represent the stage, and the bottom numbers represent "checkpoints". You can only use 00-05 when selecting checkpoints, and selecting 05 for a checkpoint takes you directly to the boss.

Here is a list of the stages.

  • 00-Chill Penguin Stage
  • 01-Spark Mandrill
  • 02-Armored Armadillo
  • 03-Storm Eagle Stage
  • 04-Morph Moth Stage
  • 05-Wheel Gator Stage
  • 06-Magna Centipede Stage
  • 07-Flame Stag Stage
  • 08-Palace Grounds (Sigma Stage 1)
  • 09-Intro Stage
  • 0A-Sigma Base
  • 0B-Same As 0A
  • 0C-Sigma Stage 2

Unused Graphics

Loaded in Storm Eagle's stage, graphics of the broken window in the tower where the heart tank is found. They were probably only to be used when played on a Game Boy Color, in which case overlay graphics are used for the window and were to be replaced by these so the player could see inside. The final does not have the window break at all, so consequently, GBC players are not able to see through it while inside.

Unused Text

This string is located at 0xFD387 (JP) / 0xFD9B6 (US/EU):

Unused SGB Palettes

By enabling the Super Game Boy flag located at 0x0146 and modifying it to 03, or using Game Genie code 031-46F-E6A, you can enable a Super Game Boy single blue palette. Super Game Boy programming appears to have been in active development and was discontinued right around the planning stages for the border. This disables the Super Game Boy border screensavers.

Notice how the "Licensed by Nintendo" screen is glitched-out when Super Game Boy features are enabled and that both Mega Man X and the game logo in the title screen looks inverted.

Oddities

For some reason, Vile is referred to as his Japanese name "VAVA" in the international versions. This error was not corrected in the Virtual Console re-release.
