RingtoneAttack - Session # 12 - Mega Man

Posted on March 14, 2014 - 5:58pm by fabio73


Each RingtoneAttack session contains one classic video game soundtrack that’s been converted into ringtones.  All ringtones are 30 seconds in length unless the original track is less than 30 seconds.  Four separate audio formats will be available for download, and will comprise of two lossless formats, ALAC and FLAC, and two lossy formats, AAC and LAME MP3.  Audio encoding information is specified below each specific audio format download link; for you audiophiles out there.

Once you’ve downloaded your preferred audio format, you’ll notice there are some audio files labeled, (Edited), at the end.  Ringtones without this labeling, contain the first 30 seconds of that particular song track.  Ringtones with the (Edited) suffix contain either more of the main verse of that song track, like when an intro building up to the main verse of the song track is a bit long, or a different verse/segment within the song track altogether.

WELCOME g1s!  I’m fabio73, and THIS… is RingtoneAttack!  I’ll be bringing you the highest quality video game ringtones on the Internet for all your mobile phone devices, and this week we have ringtones for the NES title, (fans of the cartoon show, sing along) do do do dooooo… SUPER FIGHTING ROBOT… DO DO DO DOOOOO… MEGA MAN! 

Similar to my experience playing Castlevania III: Dracula’s Curse before playing the original Castlevania, Mega Man II was the first game in the Mega Man series I played followed shortly after by Mega Man.  If your exposure to the series was similar to mine, you probably realized how much more difficult Mega Man is in comparison to Mega Man II. Now, that’s not to say Mega Man II is easy, on the contrary, Mega Man II can be difficult even without selecting the “Difficult” setting on the title screen, however, there’s no denying that Mega Man only has one difficulty setting… DIFFICULT!

How many times did you die on those moving platforms in Guts Man’s stage?  I have those platforms mastered today, but growing up they were the bane of my existence.  Then I get to Guts Man and I still manage to get caught in his ground pound earthquake.  I know how to avoid it (jump just before he lands then jump to avoid the block he throws) but I always get frantic and jump just a little too early and get caught by it and then it’s a pain to recover.  Then there’s Ice Man who can destroy you with only three shots with his Ice Slasher, Fire Man’s Fire Storm attack which is a wall of fire that comes at you as fast as Quick Man and is as much a pain to avoid as Guts Man’s ground pound earthquake, and the Yellow Devil, who’s fight is a test of timing and patience even with using Thunder Beam.  Plus, this is the only Mega Man game not to feature a password system.  So if you want to beat the game, you have to do it from start to finish.  Not really difficult as you get unlimited continues but still takes getting used to if you’ve played other games in the series before the original. 

Despite its difficulties you never get discouraged, only more determined, and that’s one of the Mega Man series' greatest qualities.  Now throw in solid controls, memorable characters, a rock-paper-scissors battle system, and music so phenomenal that it blows your clothes off, and you have a combination for epicness!!

Alright everybody!  It’s time FOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOR, your ringtone downloads!  CLICK THE MUSIC!
